If you are a third party and know something that you shouldn't know, are you the perpetrator too?
It is like the situation where there is a obvious outright lie (deception); and then when there is a lie of omission. Is the person who does the lie of omission guilty as the person who committed the action.
So if a third party knows what a person is doing is wrong and keeps quiet about it, should this third party be held accountable to the same degree as the perpetrator?
The answer could depend on whether someone was harmed in any way and to what degree they were harmed.
This sounds like a situation where the alleged 3rd. party could be considered an accomplice or at the very least, could be justifiably accused of being complicit, while perhaps not being considered involved in a legal sense. The "action" in question, the results & legal ramifications are all matters that would be considered. This person would not however be charged as "the perpetrator," not having been directly responsible for whatever crime it was.
No IMHO. The perpetrator instigates and does the action of a crime. As pointed out by Paula then arrives complicit and accomplice as 3rd parties while add another case - witness.
