    I'm having flashbacks of that poor poor hubber who went through hell at work when someone decided it was their place to 'help' by sending their Bubhub threads to their employer
    Obviously if someone is in danger or risk people should attempt to HELP and support but as it is online it is not proof of anything.
    I disagree and this is not quite true

    Depending upon the situation, the mods and other hubbers can report stuff to the cops and there have been a few instances on here where things have been reported to DHS/DOCS, the police etc.

    There have been a few tragic instances where stuff got missed or not reported and the outcome has been very sad.

    The rules do state that we are not to post about illegal stuff, and people do need to be very careful how much they do divulge.

    Id strongly recommend that people report stuff to the mods if concerned, and also to the relevant authorities if they suspect a life and death matter

I would hate to think someone in the OP's situation would hesitate to call the police in that situation because someone has told her she would be considered complicit.
    I'm not saying it's right, I'm saying that's what could happen. I'm not scaring people - it's just how it is. And it varies from state to state too. A lot of police officers don't like having to give out unfair charges but that's their job and they're usually pretty understanding but there isn't always a lot of room to move when it comes to the law.

    Eg. If I walk into a police station and ask to be breath tested as I want to drive home but I'm not sure if I'm under the limit, they can't test me. If I walk out the front, get in my car, and then they breath test me and I'm over? Boom. Arrested for breath analysis and probably charged with a PCA offence. Fair? Not really - I tried to be responsible. But that's the way the cookie would crumble.

    I don't dispute any of that, of course. I'm only talking about the situation described in the OP, and I think that there is a reasonable argument that calling the police to stop an offence makes the OP not complicit in the offence, and any (hypothetical) charges against the OP would not result in any sort of conviction.

    I agree, in that situation I'd hope not
