    +1. My answer would completely depend on the situation.

    Even if they had a good reason, there are consequences for actions. I might consider being close to them after they have faced these consequences. The law has a purpose, and my interaction in the situation would only cause more interference in the process of finding the truth.

    from the episode the postponement

    Kramer: Hey, hey.

    George: March 21st. Hey! So, you're gonna back me on this, right?
    Jerry: Oh, all the way.

    George: You are a good friend. You know what? Even if you killed somebody I wouldn't turn you in.

    Jerry: Is that so?

    Jerry: Hey, Kramer if I killed somebody would you turn me in?

    Kramer: Definitely.

    Jerry: You're kidding?

    Kramer: No, no, I would turn you in.

    Jerry: You would turn me in?

    Kramer: Phwap, I wouldn't even think about it.

    Jerry: I can't believe your a friend of mine.

    Kramer: What kind of person are you going around killing people?

    Jerry: Well, I am sure I had a good reason.

    Kramer: Well,, if you'll kill this person, who's to say I wouldn't be next?

    Jerry: But you know me!

    Kramer: I thought I DID!

    I chose E but I would really just try to get themselves to turn themselves in

    Also probably.

    -Call a lawyer
    -Have them turn themselves in.

    I chose A but am not sure at all. It all depends on context, I suppose. I am closest to my sister and bf. My sister, I imagine, would not murder someone without a)that person kinda deserving it and b)without GOOD reason. My bf might just murder someone out of momentary insanity. I'd be more invested in protecting my sister, I think, simply because I see her as someone who wouldn't do it unless seriously provoked.

    Although murder is never justified.

    I would encourage them to turn themselves in, no matter the situation. I'm not becoming an accessory to a crime. If they didn't turn themselves in, I'd have to report them. But really, I just don't want to know.

    If my best friend ever did that, then there's gotta be something wrong with him. So I voted E, just to get him the help he needs.. of course, this is all circumstantial. I'd be there regardless, but a unless the murder was an accident, I couldn't live with myself. Murder isn't an answer to problems.

    Nice thread. The options are good, but I think the one I chose would really depend on the situation and my friend's post-reactions to his own crime. If he killed someone intentionally and for no good reason, I'd probably report him and probably cut ties. If he killed someone out of passion I might help him, and if I helped him I'd be all in, no talking.
