If you knew the answers to a missing person case would you tell, or hide the information to protect the person. Considering your are professional in the case and you just don't like the family?
So, are you asking if we are above the law or should just ignore it altogether? Perhaps, you're asking if we should retain our morals and ethics or just ignore them in light of not liking someone?
Just asking your opinion. What ever way you want to look at it. Just trying to figure out why someone I know might be doing it, and of course they are working in the case. I personally think its horrible hiding evidence.
You could be in trouble also if you don't share your suspicions with the authorities and that missing person comes to harm when you could have made a difference. I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I didn't do what I could to help.
All you do is provide more evidence to the fact that your religion has not taught you and morals or ethics if you're still trying to figure that out.
hmm....I told the on the person doing this, not that I did it dork! lol Nothing to do with religion! Just common sense to tell the truth if you no someone is hiding things. Your something Troubled man. Maybe that is why your name is trouble! lol
Yes, and you just keep hurtling personal insults. How very Christian of you.
hmm...well i do apologize Trouble for hurting your feelings. I'm sure you are truly a huggy teddy bear, very sweet and lovable. I send you lots of hugs!
Now since you such a wise man Trouble and a perfect citizen of Hubpages, where are all your hubs on on Troubles wisdom? lol
I was asking the question hypothetically if you were in the position of the authority would it be something you would do.
Regardless if I am a person in authority or not I have to really look at all the avenues and what is best for that person in hiding. As someone mentioned children are more hurt in the system and pretty much thrown to the wolves so to speak...it would not be an option...
However, the questions comes to mind what would be best for the case, me, or the party involved.
Please look at the fact that there are reasons why this person is doing this.
I don't have nearly enough information to make the call.
Is the missing person an adult or a child?
Did he/she go missing as a child, and now is a legal adult? Or did he/she go missing as an adult?
If an adult, why is he/she hiding from his/her family?
Tell us more facts, and maybe I can guess how I might act. With no facts, other than "someone is 'missing' but I know where they are," I can't guess what I'd do.
well you can read about her Baby Katherine Phillips
You should always tell someone (involved in the case) if you have information, you don't have time to waste in a missing persons case. I didn't read all the threads and know all the circumstances, but if you tell someone else you trust, you will probably feel better yourself.
The real question is, what is your morality? What is the right thing to do. Of course if you are a lawyer and have money on the case, there are no morals and you cover your client right or wrong, and that is sad. I never gave them any leeway for scruples as "professionals". But, if you have information that is pertinent to the case, you take responsibility for your own actions. You can say nothing and live the lie forever, or just get the matter out of the way. Liking the family or not, would you like yourself?
Withhold information in a missing person's case because you don't like the family? I'd be curious if someone that incredibly low would actually admit it. I'm somewhat disturbed that you thought to ask the question.
I'm kind of disturbed I might be witnessing it. For they have basically told me few months back they possibly where the person was, and stated at the same time, maybe they were better off where they are, instead of the family they are in. I can't know for sure, just been watching the things he says, and it doesn't all jive with me. He could just be saying that, but he doesn't say it to anyone else in the public eye.
Ok. Now that's different. If someone went missing of their own accord, I might let sleeping dogs lie.
no this was not an adult that went missing, but a child. I think they feel that they are protecting the child, but really If it was me I would leave in the authorities hands to determine whether a family is fit to take care of the child. That is what protective services is for. lol
You know, I can see why this is such a sticky situation for your acquaintance. You said they are part of the system. Is that correct? So they know how truly impossible it is for social services to actually protect children.
I would say, if they know the family and are making a judgement call that they truly believe is in the child's best interest; they must care an awful lot for that child. To risk either losing their job or possible disciplinary action in order to protect the child's whereabouts says a lot about their motivations.
You need to question your own motivations also. I don't know the situation well enough to know if I would agree with them or you.
I'm not to directly related to the case, for the most part I've stayed out of it, because it just turns out to be a big controversial mess. I let the authorities handle it, in every direction. They have the authority to do something. I really don't. Just crazy that one of them, might have the answer, but with holding evidence while lots of people are donating money, giving time, and honestly trying to find the child.
I'd need more info before I could know who I thought was right, or wrong. Letting the system have its way is not always the best way. But, it sounds like an unfortunate situation for the person who is apparently in hiding. I wish them all the luck.
I'm so sorry you feel that way Trouble! I'll send you a greeting card! Hope you'll forgive me, or maybe we can do what they taught me in 4th grade at the Catholic school. We can sit together all day eat lunch, hang out and talk, play video games, hold hands where ever we go until we get along. The lessons was love your neighbor and forgive. Now I know this might be hard for you and all, because you might have to be nice.
Feel what way? Laughing at your personal insults shouldn't make you sorry. Try being honest for a change and apologize for the personal insults, instead.
So, you ask for forgiveness right before you toss out another personal insult. Unbelievable.
I'm sure everyone agrees on hubpages you are the most loving guy on the site!
A question of morals. Personally, I would tell what I knew as long as nobody would be in harms way.
Would a crooked cop be involved who'd harm the person or such? Otherwise, do your duty. As a utilitarian, I find that when people don't follow the rules generally, the consequences are bad.
I'll tell you this:
A long time ago a family member got themselves in trouble. Their lawyer called me and suggested that I might testify that this person was not where the evidence said he was. I refused. The lawyer got angry.
Right is right. I refused. Period.
You know? That is a good question. I think, though, that I would still give out the information to the best of my abilities. I don't think that withholding evidence is the right way to go, no matter who it hurts. I think that truth is the best decider of someone's fate in this case.

In quite a few discussions and forums, I've noted that both atheists and Believers state that the God of the bible wants (or demands, depending on who is looking at it) that his followers not only worship Him, but to also depend on Him for everything. My question is this, If God's desire (working...

Evolutionists and the Atheist claims that man and all other things are product evolution. If evolution is a fact, If it is true, Where is the missing link?
