    There's a difference between "legally required to" and "being okay with".

    Let's not blur law and ethics here.

    That doesn't protect her. It only protects him.
    It sure as hell protects her from perjury.

    The OP says more than that.
    Much of which is speculatory.

    In many cases, it's a crime not to report a crime. It's another law on the books. As it should be.

    I know someone right now committing insurance fraud. I'll wait for the anticipatory sirens outside my place.

    People watch crimes happen and often do nothing. That's not illegal. There is no legal requirement to report a crime being done by someone else nor to attempt to stop or prevent it. Maybe it should be, but it isn't.
    Did you not notice the two guys at Penn State who were charged with exactly that crime, of not reporting it? Yes, it clearly is a legal requirement in PA.

    It's a crime just to not report it if you know about it. Even if you didn't see it happen, let alone participate in it.

    And that's a good thing. Not reporting this crime means someone likely gets away with it, and may do it again.

    She wouldn't be charged as an accessory. She'd be charged with failing to report. Completely different things. Even if the crime never happened, if she believed a crime was happening, she had a duty to report it.

    It sure as hell protects her from perjury.
    Perjury by whom?

    Much of which is speculatory.
    Of course. This isn't a courtroom (thank God!)

    From his post, he sounded like he was saying he was okay with it. So I asked. He can answer.

    So what you are saying is you are OK with punishing inaction. The government can want me to do something all they want but I'm not inclined to do anything. It is a clear violation of my rights and liberty and I will not obey it.

    Re: Should Dorothy Sandusky Be Charged With a Crime?

    So an elderly woman found guilty of failure to report? It'd cost them thousands to find her guilty of a crime that would end up with probation and maybe a few hours of community service. If I'm a Pennsylvania official of any sort, I want this concluded as quickly and unremarkably as possible, then lock it away to never be discussed again.

    Of course. This isn't a courtroom (thank God!)
    I'm saying moreso than others. I believe 100% that McCrearly saw some pretty bad stuff in the locker room. I am unconvinced that any alleged victim in this case making the sorts of claims they were in that situation.
