Since this is your HW, a few leading quesitons for you.
If someone hurt your mother (or loved one), and a second person helped them, or didn’t rat them out, would you want them punished?
What if it was robbing them of $ 100K?
What if it was murder?
Of course, anyone who knows anything should come forward!

    Hey, if you had any part in the crime, you are just as guilty as the primary criminal.

    I don’t think that you should be hiding out a criminal by no means. If it was something major especially (voilence, burgulary, etc.).

    If I knew that someone was actually wanting to hide out at my house that was like that I would have to question my own judge of character. I think this is pretty much how the police officer’s look at it to.
