Have you ever turned a close relative, to the cops, for something they were doing wrong, possibly illegal?????

I am in this situation now. I love my Dad, but I may have to turn him in to authorities. I don't want to but what he is doing is wrong. I would be doing this anonymously, and possibly destroy or put a wedge in the family. I am still going to stand my ground. Pray for me. Has anyone else gone through anything similar? How did you come to the decision to turn that person in???

 If what he is doing causes harm to others or has the potential to hurt or harm someone else, yes....you should make that call.  Best of luck to you.

It definitely poses harm to another relative. It's hard to send my dad to jail even though he deserves it. I even thought about an intervention. Getting all the family members together and force him to either go to anger management or jail.

I completely agree! It's not child molestation but just as embarrassing. I really want to stop it without cops. An intervention might help.


Quoting Girlzmachine:

I have not been in this situation but I would if they were a child molester or if they murdered someone or put a child in any danger.

Girl, I just might have too. All because he can't get his anger together.

o i know anger can be a serious issue...I'd call before he does something and someone else calls. @ least you'd be trying to stop it before it get too serious.

I never had to turn a family member in. It would depend on what crime they committed and if a reward was being offered.

Girl, this truly made me laugh out loud. If there is a reward offered.... Too funny.
