Someone comes to you and inquire about your neighbour's life style,what time they leave and come back for work, where they hang out.And this is the neighbour that you hate for some reasonss known to you and them This someone is planning a robbery on that neighbour, your neighbour is smart to other people rather than you, meaning you and your neighbour hate each other big time Now this someone is offering you an amount of cash if you can tell him all about your neighbour's type of life so that he will know how to trace and get around him/her. Will you tell your neighbour that someone is planning something bad on them or will you take the money fron that someone and tell him all about your neighbour?

In my case... even if i do not like my neighbor... i would surely warn them about the intention of bad guys to rob them... but if i do not like talking to them... i would go staight to the police and report those bad guys... I myself do not want to be robbed and i also do not want to see a neighbor of mine suffer such a fate... even if they are quite a nuisance...

Oh my... in my country you would be considered as a hero for exposing the robbers... and that might even lead to the start of a good relationship between you and your neighbor...

Well, as long as i did my civic duty... then that is okay... it is not really too much of a hassle to describe the person in order to help the police in the investigation...

Of course I will protect my neighbor from those robbers no matter how I hate them. I mean it is my duty as a Christian to do good to my fellowmen whoever they are. I would be so guilty if I would keep quiet in the midst of the fact that I know my neighbor would be robbed. And I will never ever accept any cash or bribe for cooperating in a robbery or any crime. That is so horrible. I never would allow myself to be an instrument of any crime.

What if you inform your neighbor and still the robber find a way of getting to your neighbor and do all the bad things there and get away with and never get caught, do you think your neighbor will never suspect anything from you? He/she might think that you are the one who set them up because maybe there is a hatred between the two of you And if the criminal totally get away with it you might be a suspect because your neighbor might testify the hate to the police and tell how there is hatred between the two of you and how you will do anything to hurt them

It is always easy to suspect anyone but proving the veracity of a suspicion is another thing. For as long as my conscience is clear I have nothing to worry about. The truth will always set me free! Cheers!

No you could not rob someone. Not even your worst enemy. I would tell my horrible neighbour about it and let him sort it out. If he gets the Police that is up to him. What comes around goes around. Karma and all that, but you would never have any luck in your life if you done something like that. I could not stand by and let this happen to anyone. Well interesting discussion. It got my mind in gear.

Don't you think your neighbor might think that those are your people or maybe you are trying to threaten him/her considering that you guys are somehow having a fight or something?

Yes, your, right. You would only end up prime suspect if something happens. Tricky discussion this one.

I would not take the money and I would tell that bad neighbor and the police as well. I might hate my neighbor for some reasons or another but I am not going to let any criminal activities get the better of me. I just hate them but not to a point where it can hurt them. Furthermore, conspiring with criminals is an offense punishable by law. What life has taught me so far is not to do bad things to others if you do not want bad things to happen to yourself. In this example, if I were to allow the criminal to rob my neighbor, one day, the criminal would then conspire with some other people to rob me and I would not want that to happen. Who knows, may be by telling my neighbor about those bad people wanting to rob him or her, things could get better and we might even be friends. Sounds to ideal, right? Anyway, in conclusion, doing bad things to others are cannot be justified unless we are bad as well and we do not want to be the bad guys... Cheers!

What if you tell you neighbor and that someone still manage to brake into their house and take everything, and now you are the suspect because you told them about something which will happen and it did happen and now the police are suspecting you? remeber your neighbor hate you. He/she may think that because of the hatred between you and him/her you might have hired some people to attack them And what will happen if the people who did this never get caught, you will be arrested for that becasue they will say you know who did it and come and tell us who is that..only to find that you were only trying to help. For me i would rather keep quite about everything, not take the money and not tip my neighbor about it, i mean if the criminals aren't caught then all eyes will be on you, you will be the main suspect as how did you know that something like was gonna happen and you will have to do lot of answering which might lead you into jail for nothing

That is a good point. We can never know what would they be thinking. If that is the case then I would agree with you that we should just keep quite but at the same time do not cooperate with the bad guys. Thanks!
