How serious of a crime would a loved one have to commit before you turned them in?
it would really depend on the situation, at hand. However, knowing them, I know if I did something wrong (NOT that I ever would, but I'm just bringing this up as an example), I know they'd turn me in at a heartbeat without even bothering hearing my side of the story. Seriously, they'll trust a complete stranger's word over mine every single time. I guess this is where I can kind of identify with Rodney Dangerfield sometimes. I get no respect. No respect at all, I tells ya. j/k
Hi Daffy Duck,
Personally, I would never turn a loved one in for any reason.
Ongoing treason would also seem to be a legitimate reason.
Depends on if there is a bounty involved. I'd turn in Grandma for a million or so.
I'd hate to go to one of your family reunions.
It's only one family member I feel that way about.
Because of her actions, we are not likely to have any family reunions anytime soon.
Would it seem less harsh if I changed it from "breathing" to "speaking"?
It would largely depend on the crime and if people were hurt in the process. I don't like anyone hurting or impeding another person, and if I didn't turn them in, the bad karma would be mine. However, if it was someone I was very close to, I'd probably try to get them to turn themselves in.
Definitely rape, and maybe murder. The murder would depend on the circumstances. I see the treason, it's just not that common of an offense.
Depends who I liked more: The person the crime was against or the family member!
