Remember OKC bombing?

The folks McVeigh stayed with got years in jail for not telling the Feds he was going to do a bombing. Their defense was, basically, "we didn't think he was serious". They went to jail.

I believe if you have direct personal knowledge of a crime, (and yes, planning a crime is also a crime - conspiracy) then you have a moral obligation to report it. You may have a legal obligation, then again, you may not. That is much more fact dependant, and if you have any doubts, you ought to be talking to a good lawyer.

If your friend has done some questionable things, but not clearly illegal, then I think it would depend on how you felt about them being a disqualifier for what ever position he is being cleared for. If they ask, don't lie. If they don't ask, .....your call.

Guess that doesn't help all that much...sorry!
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
