    "Murder is the unlawful killing of another human person with malice aforethought, as defined in Common Law countries. Murder is generally distinguished from other forms of homicide by the elements of malice aforethought and the lack of lawful justification."

    I ain't supporting that. Even if my only interest was self-preservation, it becomes too likely my friend would kill me.

    I'd say chances are pretty good that I'd go for A but bitch about it a lot (afterwards) and feel guilty as hell until my dying day. If I were to crack under the guilt, I'd more likely crack in the direction of trying to convince the person to turn themself in rather than in the direction of reporting them myself. It's possible that if the context were sufficiently unjustifiable (eg racist killing) I'd consider the friendship null and void by reason of it being based on a fundamental misunderstanding of who the person was (ie never a true friendship in the first place). I'm not sure what I'd do then. Probably turn them in.

    If the friend is regretful/repentant, E. If not, F.

    I've had a joke with a friend of mine about us ending up in prison together one day for screwing up something. If I thought I could get away unpunished and she was regretful or it was accidental, I'd go for A with lots of bitching; otherwise E.
    If it were it anyone else I'd report 'em.

    I feel like a horrible person for not feeling guilty of possibly helping her. Accepting a murder. Sigh.

    O hush, you know they won't charge you or anything. Kids.. They're pure evil. Common knowledge. Just go with the nice men carrying a white coat.

    Naw, the rest are nice. I'm just a bit.. evil.

    I would help them bury the body. Then I would accompany them while making a confession.
