If your child committed murder and you knew would you turn them in?

I myself don't know. I would rely try to convince her to turn herself in. If she didn't I would probably have to. I couldn't have something like that on my conscience. This doesn't mean I don't love her before anyone goes there and says that.

  • I would take her to the best lawyer i could find and make arrangements to have her picked up by law enforcement.Murder is a horrible thing and your child will have to live with it for the rest of his/her life regardless of how much jail time is actually served.

  • I would. I turned my dad in when I found out he raped a girl. My family hates me for it but I could not live with myself knowing this poor girl was living in fear of my dad. He actually is the only one not made at me. I have visited him in prison and still love him. I think my love for him is why I turned him in. I didn't want him to hurt anyone else but I didn't want him to hurt himself. It would break my heart but if my child could kill someone they could kill me or other family and they deserve to pay for the crimes they commit.

  • Most people don't just go out and commit murder out of the blue. There would have been a history of troubling actions. The kid would have long ago been involved with the police.

  • I mean, no one knows what they'd do in that situation. Maybe some of yall that are saying you would, might end up not turning your child in. I wouldn't try to hide her or lie for her but I would not have any part in convicting her
