    Depending on the circumstances, A or E.

    A) Because you gotta put your money where your mouth is.

    E) Because I like to believe I would know the "single closest person" to me enough that it wouldn't shock me too much... I'd still probably care for him/her.

    Definitely D) refuse to help the friend but don't report them

    I would not want anything to do with what he/she did, and I may stay away from them for a while, but I wouldn't report them unless my own life was in danger. It's a tough situation though. Definitely wouldn't help them.

    ..maybe even two..
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Are you helping your friend out by covering something up that is as serious as murder? In the long run are they going to do better in life if you don't turn them in? If they murdered a million people (as in your example) they need to have something done about them.

    Being a good friend does not have to equal pretending there is nothing wrong with them. If I was a serial killer is sure as heck would hope someone would do something about it. They might have murdered someone else's best friend, you know?

    You are not alone. I would never send my friend to prison. If he Really needs help, I will force him to theraphy/asylum, but not prison.

    I too am surprised of how many people chose D and E.

    I agree completely, and that's why I chose E. Because not only does my friend need help, but the person he murdered.. the people close to them, they need closure. They have to know why and how their loved one died. Turning your friend in is probably the best thing you can do for them, because otherwise they'd live a life of shame and fear. That's a fate worse than whatever punishment that they would face.

    My best friend, in particular, is my stepbrother. If he murdered someone, I would be shocked to no ends - he's not the type of person to do that. And I would tell him that immediately, we must go turn him in. If he refuses, I don't know what I'd do. But.. I couldn't live with myself if I aided him in concealing the truth. I don't care how close I am to someone, unless there are extreme circumstances... killing is wrong. I try to look at it from this point of view: if it were my best friend being killed, wouldn't I want to know why? And the person my best friend murdered was someone's best friend, someone's son, someone's daughter. I couldn't let the other person's family live life without knowing why.

    Regardless of the circumstances I couldn't help anyone cover up. Nor would I expect that from my friends.

    If they killed someone out of self defense they would have my support and I would push them in every way I could to come clean sooner rather than later, the longer they take and the more they do to cover it up the worse itíll be for them. D (maybe E)

    If it was due to a lack of control then obviously they need help. E

    In both cases my friendship would not end because they made a mistake but if they didnít take responsibility for their actions it would be damaged.

    If it was pre-meditated then clearly I don't know them and Iíd want to get as far away from them as possible. F
