Here’s a question for you.  If you knew someone was doing something wrong or illegal, would you turn them in and possibly lose the friendship, or would you keep it to yourself, even if you were going to get in big, big trouble by knowing the information, and not reporting it. 

It’s a tough one.  Basically, would you keep quiet or tell the truth?

  1. If He Killed Someone Then Yes If They Did Anything Else Like Steal A Couple of Stuff Than No

  2. Oh wow..uhm it actually depends on wah dey did..nd dependin` on how much trouble i might be gettin` into..buh probably i would turn them in nd try to leave myself anonymous!

  3. that is a tough question, but i would’ve turned that person in for doing something like that but at the same time ill feel bad because its my friend and im supposed support them. although turning them in will keep them out of troouble and slowly learn not to do something wrong or illegal again.

  4. that is a tough question but, i hope i would do the right thing by reporting them. on the other hand if it was a really good friendship would i really want it to end even if they were doing something wrong. so it really all comes down to how good of the friendship it is.

  5. I think that I would just ignore the issue if it had been small, but If it was really serious then id probly do somthing.

  6. Yeah I would keep it to myself because first it’s none of my buisness. And second He or she is my friend so i’m not gone rat them out.

  7. That is a really hard question to answer because if i had turned him in iwould lose a freind and i also might get hurrt if they would try to hurt me..If i were to tell i wouldnt mention my name because i could get into a lot more of trouble because they could come after… that s what i might do.

  8. Thats a tough one! For me to really answer this question I would have to be in the situation. I don’t really know if I would chose to tell on my friend or keep that freindship. If it was something that could endanger my freind then I might tell, but other wise I really don’t know what I would do.

  9. well me im not a snitch at ALL buh if they were doning somethin that is hutring some one and if some one asked me about it ther i would slight way give them a hint or somehin…. buh i dont snitch

  10. honestly, i’m a bad liar. if no one asked me, then i wouldn’t say anything. if they did, which it’s most likely, then yes. although, it depends on the situation, like wether it’s a big issue or a small one. lols. it’s complicated i’ll admit.

  11. I’m not sure what I would do if it was a really good friend I would keep quiet. If I didn’t like the person I would turn them in.

  12. it realy depends on the person and the crime they did
    if it was that huge then yes, but something minor, than mayb no

  13. WELL IT DEPEND`Z 0N WH0 IT WAS AND WHAT THEY DID.. IF IT`S SOMETHING REALLY BAD & I COULD GET INT0 TR0UBLE F0R KN0WING & NOT TELLING ABOUT IT 0R IT CAN HURT S0ME0NE THEN YEA.. BUT THEN IF IT`S N0T REALLY THAT BAD & I D0N`T REALLY CARE ABOUT IT THEN NO I MOST LIKELY WON`T TELL..

  14. iF iT WAS OVER SOMETHiNG StUPiD LiKE STEALiNG CRAyONS FROM SOMEONE, THEN i WOULDNt tELL BECAUSEi THiNk tHATS DUMB…BUt iF iT WAS SOMETHiNG BiG LiKE SOMEBODy KiLLiNG SOMEBODy AND ME WiTNESSiNG iT tHEN yEA i WOULD tELL…??

  15. I think it would be easier to tell the truth so you won’t get in bigger troubleif you don’t tell the truth

  16. i would keep it to myself n if me n my friend get couaght then atleast i have a good cell mate lol i wouldn’t want to lose my friendship ova ANYTHING

  17. UMMMM….yA i BASicALLy WOULDN`T TELL…BECAUSE iH`M NOT A SNiTCH…&& EVEN iH`F iH WOULD GET MEi iH`N TROUBLE, i STiLL WOULDN`T TELL, BUH CUZ FRiEN` SHip iH`S EVERYTHiNG TUH MEi…CALL MEi STUPiD,BUH THAT`S HOW i FEEL….♥

  18. i would probably speak up especially if it invovles graduation or something big at stake……maybe i would tell anonymously or write a note telling who it was…friends are good to have buh a GRADUATION IS A GREAT THING TO EXPERIENCE……buh also a great thing doesn’t feel as great if u don’t have the ones you care about to share it with you and experience the moment…..guilt kicks in after a while…it’s just a matter of how u deal with it and wether your friend has it in their heart to forgive you….nd if they don’t then they aren’t a true friend if they expected you to risk your future for a silly thing…especially if they know that yooh are “going somewhere”.

  19. I wouldnt turn turn them in if there doing somthing illeagle because eventually they will notice the harm and damage their doing to their self hopefully before its too late so i would keep it quiet

  20. Well, if it was a really really good friend then i would most likely keep it 2 myself. but if it was just someone i knew but not that well, i would probably tell someone.

  21. whoaa baby! thats a tough one. it depends on whose the person that doing something illegal. if its one of my really close friends,I probably wouldn’t, but if i don’t really know that person i probably would. Good question…it got me thinking.

  22. If there were ma Friendz den i would help dem out by not $tillin $tuff daTz illegal….but if there NoT mA fRienDz den i would turn dem in

  23. hmm…tat really would depend. I have a lot of family problems and especially with my aunt, who’s only 16, but she trusts me so i guess i’m expected to keep her things as a secret. I have never really told anyone anything. I learned to keep things quite so i guess i got into a habit of it so it doesn’t really matter anymore. But no i don’t think i would tell anyone anything unless if they wanted me to tell it.

  24. Shoot! I guess it depends on what… if it was forgery i wouldn’t, but if it was theft or anything more serious then yeah, I’d turn ’em in

  25. yea thats a hard one for me if he/she was going to do sumtin stupid I whould. thats all

  26. it really depends..if it was my besty` friend who i wouldn`t wanna lose then maybe..it also depends on how major or minor the crime was..if it was major i`d most likely turn them in because i`d b helping them `cuz they can`t b on da run 4ever..if it was minor i wouldn`t i`d leave it up to them to do the right thing

  27. i think it would be easier to tell the truth because the truth sets things straight and i think it would be better if everyone told the truth because it helps and it is jsut better for everyone

  28. I would tell the truth, no matter who it is. if they did something wrong, they have to be brought to justice…

  29. well… i would tell the truth because it is the right thing to do and especially if your gonna be in a lot of trouble.

  30. It would depend on the crime. If they murdered someone, I would have to turn them in. If they stole some little thing at a store, I wouldn’t turn them in. I would only turn someone in if it was serious or it affected someone.

  31. UMMm…HONESTLy ii DNT KNo WHAt ii WOULD DO….ii’VE NEVER BEEn iiN DAT SiiTUATiiON….SO ii DNT REALLY KNOw WHAt ii WOULd Do

  32. thats a tough one. well wouldnt tell because thats their buisness and its their conscious that going to be bothering them, but if it was something really bad like killing someone than i would tell.

  33. i guess it all depends on what they did. if they were a reallyyy good friend and did something REALLLYY badd then i MIGHT tell.. just so that it would bring them back to reality and maybe stop doing it. if it was something not so big, then id keep quiet.
    :]

  34. moral integrity is really hard for me to do or even maintain i mean it depends on what he/she does to be honest the way i waz brought in my home as a child i probably wouldnt tell i dont think its wrong not to tell if they are doing something illegal im just doing what i was taught to do

  35. It would depend on the crime they did. I would not turn them in if i was someting little

  36. ummmm..it depends on wat problem or how much trouble it can get..buhh i tink it would be really nice to thrm if you can give them a little help with problem..

  37. dat depends on wat their doin bt yea i know that i wouldnt be involved in any kind of crime

  38. Well honestly I would try to convince them that they need to tell someone they trust and can help do something about it and then I would keep it to myself and if someone nosy came up to me and asked me I would tell them I am not going to tell them anything they need to talk to the person not me because its not my problem anymore….ya know?

  39. if the crime was bad and was my friend i wouldnt tell id just let him turn himself in or talk to him about it till he does.If its sumone i dont no then id probly tell.

  40. it’s hard to know!
    if its something very bad i will say something and maybe if it something not very but i think i would still say something

  41. IT’S LiKE NESSA F. SAyD…LiKE tHAT LIL’ STUFF…i AiNt G0NE tALK yA KN0W!!…BUH LiKE iF iT W0ULD BL0W UP BEC0ME S0METHING HUGE ND’ STUFF…THiN…i W0ULD SAy S0MtHiN….i HATE TELLIN 0N PE0PLE….BUH KiLLiN S0ME1….[ & EViN iF THEyD THREATiN ME]…i W0ULD RUN STRAIghT T0 THA FUZZ….*THER IS SUMTHIN CALLD THE WITNESS PR0TECTI0N AGENCY!!* -DUH-! 🙂

  42. i would probably turn them in if it was something like murder…but if it was something dumb then probably no….ummmmmm i think that if i did witness it then i would turn that person in because then if you dont it will be with you forever..

  43. Thats a hard question For me, really answering that question would have to depend on the situation. I don’t know if I would tell on my friend or keep that freindship. If it was something that could kill my freind then I would tell, but other wise I really don’t know what I would do.

  44. Even though they were my friend, I would tell the truth. I may lose their friendship, but it’d be a big help to the both of us. They’d learn what they did was wrong and that they have to pay the consequences for it. It would help me by not giving me the stress of having to worry about them and if they’ve been arrested or not.

  45. if they they thertined me nd told me that they will do somthing bad to me if i did tell on them then i will turn them in

  46. thats a tough one i wouldnt want to lose a friend but i would choose something that is right over something that is wrong.i would turn them in.

  47. i would tell the truth if it was something huge or if some one was doing something to hurt themselves but if its not worth losing a friend ship i wouldent tell

  48. if they were a really close friend and it was their first offense, no. if they did it again, i might…

  49. I wOuLd PoSsIbLy TuRn ThAt pErSoN In, bUt If ThEy WeRe FaMiLy It WoUlD Be ToUgH! I tHiNk It AlSo DePeNdS On WhAt DaT PeRsOn DiD….

  51. It would depend on wat the person did…if its really really bad and they could end up killing themselves then i would turn them in.^^

  52. If it was a really close friend i would tell because i would not want them to get in trouble or to get hurt.

  53. I would turn them in if it was a maijor thing but if it was the a small thing i would basicly say something.

  54. I wouldn’t like too snitch on my friend but if it got something to do with killing some one I might have to.But only if someone ask me.Other wise I wouldn’t get into the mess.

  55. iM N0T THE 0NE T0 SNiTCH 0N S0ME B0Dy S0 i W0ULD PR0BLy N0T BE THE 0NE T0 TELL BUT iF THEy WERE G0NNA HURT M0 0R 0NE 0F My FAMiLiA MEMBERS THEN i W0ULD TURN THE iN …..BECUZ FAMiLiE iS THE M0ST iMP0RTANT THiNG iN y0UR LiFE FAMiLiA C0MES FiRST N0 MATTER WHAT!!……….N0T EVEN N0THiNG AL ALL REALy JUST FAMILiE EVEN iF THE FRiEND WAS y0UR BEST FRiEND….

  56. 4 me,it depends on wat da person did,if it was somethin big lik a murder or somethin lik that,then yeah i would tell.other than that, i wouldn’t say anything,even if i was going 2 get in a lot of trouble

  57. If the person did a minor thing only once, then no but mare than once or a big thing, then yes. It also depends how much of a friend they are.

  58. if it was something major i would tell…but if it was really small…i probaly wouldn’t tell…but i might get in trouble to

  59. I dont know if i would turn my friend in. The reason why i dont know is because i dont like to snitch. But if it was like a murder then yeah i would turn him/her in to get him/her help.

  60. if someone dose or going to do something dangers to someone then i will tell only if they r going to hart someone

  61. thats a good question,

    after i learned my lesson i will carry my problems my own self, no matter how much trouble im in.

    Mrs Vermuelen,

    i have learned my lesson;truely i have;)

  62. It all depends on what they did because if they did soemthing minor, probably not, but if they did something major, then yes definitely(like killing someone). If they did something minor, I would not want to loose a great friendship.

  63. WOW that a tough one really.Well it depends really if its a if its just a friend that i say stuff to if its my best friend i wont tell if its a bad friend il tell it really just depend what kind of friend it is

  64. well guilt kicks in after a while

    its a lose lose situation

    u turn em in u feel guilty for rattign them out and they might come after u later

    if u dont theymight have a real problem and hurt ppl and u feel guilty cuz ur responsible for wat ur friend did

    im NOT a snitch so most likely no but if they killed someone i would tell someone else so they can tell or do it anonymously

  65. WELL 0N My PART ii REALLy DNT KNW. BECAUSE. i AiNT THE TyPE T0 SPiiL THE BEAN’sZ UNLESS THEy WERE PHySiCALy HURTiNG S0ME 0NE THAN N0…

    LiSTEN T0 THEM AND TELL ME WAT yoU THiNK

  66. I read your responses to this moral integrity question and I liked what some of you had to say. It is true that we really do not know what we would do in that situation. I would hope that each of us would show integrity, but none of us are 100% sure – are we?
    However, something to think about – it is easier to tell the truth than remember a lie.
