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.
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
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.
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? Your choice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
