    So your boyfriend/girlfriend has a scumbag son in his 20s and has had frequent drug abuse issues. The parent constantly enables the kid and time after time he’s bailed out of trouble with no consequences from the parent. The topic of how they handle him is off limits and causes problems in your relationship. You try to just tune out everything regarding the son because other than him things are well.

    So one night you’re sitting there watching local TV and they show a video of a guy roughing up an 87 year old great grandmother to steal her purse.

    What do you do? If you call the police to identify the son and your boyfriend/girlfriend finds out your relationship is over.
    You can’t lie to the boyfriend/girlfriend about telling them you told the cops if they ask. Your conscience won’t allow you to do that.


    If you tell the boyfriend/girlfriend they won’t do anything and will also now know you know.

    If you don’t do anything the kid could hurt another person.

    What do you do? Risk being single?

    If that was your mother, aunt, grandmother, or great grandmother getting roughed up, you'd want the bastard who did it locked up.

    You can call the police anonymously and give them the tip.

    Fuck that guy, he's a blight on society and if your SO can't see that and dumps you as a result, then it's her loss.

    call the cops, turn the wretch in, pack a suitcase, change your phone number and get as far away from that train wreck as possible before it pulls you down with it.

    First of all it's better to be single that date someone with a piece of shit son who ignores it.

    Yes you call the cops and call her and say fuck you it's your fault.

    The kid is in his 20s, unless she had him when she was 12 tell her to fuck off.

    The correct thing to do in this situation is make a message board thread about it.

    First of all, this is NOT an ethical dilemma because the moral decision is clear. Not doing anything about him is unethical.

    Secondly, this situation has too many problems and too much baggage to take on. The risk is not worth the reward. That scumbag might kill you one day. Drop the bitch.
