Obviously yes its a betrayal unless there are some special circumstances where the friend is a danger to himself or you/others.

What crime did he commit? Did he commit petty theft? Or did he rip someone’s limbs off?

It so depends. I don't think it's a betrayal in all cases. Like if he was some serial rapist or something? He kinda betrayed our friendship first in that circumstance, so screw him.

That's breaking the only true friend code there is.

Yes because you don't need to get involved. As far as he knows you were still friends and regardless if you had a good enough reason to get him locked up, it's still betrayal since you took advantage of the trust he had in you and got him arrested.

@jb681131: "If he hid his criminality from me, that means he hid something from me, it's against friendship"

And how in the shit does that work? So now every time I make a friend they gotta know everything about my life and I can't have any secrets otherwise it's against the friendship?

Unless they're some serial killer, or responsible for any serious crimes on that level, then yes it's betrayal. If that's your friend, then as long as they don't involve you in any of their nonsense, then it'll be best to look the other way.

Yes, cuz snitches get stitches.

Only report your friend if he committed some crime against nature like raping kids or murder

The definition of betrayal isn't reliant on your friend's moral compass. If my friend told me he murdered someone and I turned him into the police, then yes I betrayed my friend. I betrayed my friend for a very good reason. I'm am not going to try to change the dictionary definition of a word, just to convince myself I am a good person.

If we’re true friends, you bet your ass I’d be sitting in the cell next to them

Once my friend commits the crime, he no longer is my friend. Therefore I cannot betray a friend that does not exist.

Obviously it is, unless that "friend" is some kind of psychopath rapist or mass muderer and you're afraid of your own and/or your close ones safety.

Term "criminal" is so wide it's hard to give a proper answer.

Depends what crime he did.

If it's serious like murder, then no, i have done justice.

If it's like stealing, then yes, i have betrayed him
