    In context of a teacher, I would not if the children were not aware of it. If the kids had no idea, I would not care, but with teachers being role models, I would not want them doing overtly illegal things.

    I wouldn't ever bother to report victimless crimes. Mainly because in my eyes, if there's no victim, there's no crime. I don't care what the "law" says. Too many laws are completely retarded.

    Simplistic, one-size-fits-all answers to complicated questions are for simpletons and fools.

    I answered Snitching is Good just on principle. I hate the use of the word "snitch" for the implication that there is something wrong and evil about reporting crime. Your poll is bogus and means nothing, with all due respect. All the cute little rhymes about snitches, the T-shirts that demonize it, keep neighborhoods war zones.

    "snitching is a sin" ???
    What kind of nut case would advocate this position??
    It leads to a "us vs them" scenario which is not good.
    A man cheating on his income taxes...at one time few if anyone would report him, today, I think this is changing.

    Criminals and their admirers advocate this kind of position. So your question should be "What kind of scumbag would advocate such a position??"

    I would only tattle-tale on someone if they were doing something I actually thought was wrong and harmful to others. Illegal /= wrong.

    If the activity in question will cause harm to life, limb or property then snitch, if not...mind your own freaking business.

    Re: To snitch or not to snitch?

    Everyone keeps saying..

    "If it would cause harm to others, etc"

    But my question is....

    What if it already has caused harm to others, thus its no longer preventable...... would you still stick around?

    The problem with society is that we as a society are so full of apathy.

    Not only that..... apathy exists in ways it never did 20 years ago...

    A great example of this is a type of call that has come up in 3 different situations, very similar circumstances... all with the same level of apathy...

    Individual calls 911 at 2 AM to report seeing a 6 year old (their description) boy walking on the side of the road with no parents. Person who calls then bothers to not leave their name, a call back number... nor did they bother to stop and see if THEY could help said child.......... If its a lost/missing child, don't you think you would be more helpful stopping and talking with the kid at least until police can arrive and find out where the kid's parents are, what the circumstances are, etc???

    No, instead, they say "Not my kid, I called 911, im going home now"

    And 10 minutes later when we finally get to the general area that the caller told us the kid was, of course, the kid is long gone.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
