Would you put your family at risk by providing information on a murder you saw being committed .What if the person committing the murder was someone you knew and he knows that you saw him ?.What if in addition to all of these factors ,you live in a community which views such things as bad or even worse than the murderer himself calling persons such as yourself "informers" or "snitch".In addition you run the risk of being killed for such actions . Could you be selfless and act on your principle.

Thank goodness we live in a little village, I know we are not immune,but this is terrible situation to be in.I can honestly say I don't know how to react to this as not living with this dreadful situation, I think self presevation would come into it and the safety of my family if no one saw me watching I am ashamed to say noting,thats what I would react or try to drop something through the police station of an anonymouse nature and hope for the bestor move away and keep quite.Principles don't stop you getting done over or worse does it.Then you would have to think if you were living in fear anyway without this happening would it make any difference.I don;t really know and thats the truth.
