Ethics and morality can be as complex or simple as an individual. So depends.

No, helping a fugitive escape only exacerbates his offense, that might eventually lead to lethal consquences.

You turn him in, help him pay for his crime against society, and help him get reform and be a better person without the baggage of being consistently hunted down by the law.

Yes, you betrayed your friend.

For a good reason.

Nope. It's not betrayal. It's justice and caring for a friend.

Friend - A person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations.

As this person seems very important to you. You'd want him to stop doing bad things. To help and protect himself along with the public. However it should also be considered... What was the crime? @ccthor

It depends on the circumstances. There are too many situations that can alter the answer.

You have to be more specific.

Yes it was betrayal but it was still the right and necessary thing to do assuming the crime was serious enough.

@ccthor: Robber = Must be due to trying to make money off others. Or personal satisfaction.

Murder = Taking away another human’s life. Yep for whatever reason that was the cause... Killing is not acceptable unless the person cannot be helped.

Steal- Just like robbing... Still not okay.

All the above are against Humanity and must be processed the court of law. The Justice Branch. Otherwise it goes against the rules and starts Anarchy. And in extreme cases... becomes a threat to National Security. However once you stop the friend from continuously going rogue and hurting others. You have done something good. Also if they enjoy what they have done, and all the other pain they have caused for others... They have betrayed you by loosing their humanity and not caring about anyone in all aspects.

Yes. Doesn't determine whether you made the right move or not, but it is betrayal.

Before I made a decision, I would minister to him/her (and have it done) to such a degree that they'd be willing to confess and turn themselves in; I'd then be there for support, as they go through the legal process; and, then, God will provide; just watch God work and see either a very unusual sentence take place, as the person will be contrite; this is assuming that the person told me about whatever it was for my support and input. If I found out about it incidentally, it depends how serious, but, likely, I let God handle it; but, when I was a teen, around 14, I did experience something similar, but it was involving my stepfather; and it ended up changing fates and lives profoundly; I didn't let it get done lightly and this individual, understanding my plight, actually came through for me in a big way, around 9 years later; he understood that I was just kind of drawn into things and he forgave me for my small input, whereas he could have held a grudge. When I was even younger, around 9 years old, something similar help, where I felt I'd portrayed my friend who took up for me but where I didn't jump into the fight when he was expecting me; he was doing ok, but, he was expecting me to jump in; it it got bad enough, I would have jumped in; I wasn't going to let him get beaten into a pulp; actually, I was going right for it, but, for some reason, because he was doping ok, I froze; but, I was lunging right behind him and right for it. But, since then, I've also made up for it in cases involving others.

Besides, with a community as toxic as most MOBA games, I'd rather not join them.

Depends. If he claims he's innocent, then yes, it's betrayal, if he doesn't do anything to assure you in his innocence, then nope.

If my friend becomes a criminal, it means he betrayed our friendship, because I don't befriend ever with criminals, therefore he is no longer my friend, therefore I help as much as I can the cops, therefore.

@jb681131:

If you were not know he's a criminal when you make friend with him.

And he shows amount of loyalty during your friendship.help you many times.

Would you still report him when you found out he's a criminal?

Off course, if he hid his criminality to me, it means he hid something from me, it's against friendship. And anyhow, I don't excuse any criminal, so yes I would tell on him. A crime is a crime, no one should be treated with more favors than the others.

Yes but it really depends of what kind of criminal my friends are.

If they're using drugs, then I won't tell the cops.

But if they're killing people, then I would.

I would tell the cops and make up even more stuff they did. For instance if they were a robber I would follow them to their job and kill a few people just after they left. Then I would call the cops and tell them that I witnessed them murdering people. I figure that will help my friend realise that crime doesn't pay.

After 20 years when he gets out of prison I will tell him what I had done and he will be so greatful that I helped him out of a life of crime
