    My neighbor's daughter who I posted in the past ran with the wrong crowd. I mean seriously wrong crowd. I mean Aryan Brotherhood type of wrong.

    Anyway, the daughter snitched on one of them, and he went fugitive. Now, my neighbor got word (don't know how) of whereabouts of this individual (who is a Lieutenant of the Aryan Brotherhood), and called crimestoppers hoping to protect her daughter.

    LE nabbed him at his kid's birthday party in a bowling alley. My neighbor went to the bowling alley to point him out to LE. Now, he knows who ratted on him. She got $500 reward. But he didn't get as long a sentence as people thought. He will be out in a couple months.

    Depends on the type of world you want to live in. Somone has to stand up if you want a safe and decent world.

    I'd apply the reward to a quality pistol. Not knowing the whole story and dynamics of the situation, I'd move, go unlisted as much as possible...

    I hope you aren't serious.

    Yes I would if the person committed a violent crime. If I didn't and the person did it again I would feel pretty bad I did nothing. If the person did it against someone I care about I would feel even worse and might take actions that could lead to me being incarcerated so I might as well be proactive.

    I have to assume your question is rhetorical.

    Of course the answer for anyone with an ounce of decency is YES!

    Yes, I would. Quickly. Repeatedly. I prefer civilization over barbarity.

    Depends on the crime.

    Neighbor smoking a joint? No.

    Neighbor beating the crap out of his family? Someone wanted for a double murder? Hell yes.

    Ok so you're a cop and you think it's a good idea for her to walk out into a public space and point at this guy in front of all his white power friends?
    Wow, brilliant. Just wow.

    With the exception of ASH's :rofl:

    My reaction would be somewhere in regards to my family's safety. Sorry,
    but this answer is not static, It's dynamic. Just too many variables to
    make an absolute answer.

    And there's the lack of moral courage that is leading to the decay of modern society.


    Some people lack the ability to secure themselves, and therefore fear to act.


    Bravery is not the absence of fear, it is the ability to act, and do the right thing in the presence of fear.
