If a Jewish person commits a crime, why is it a sin for someone not to turn them in~? If someone is guilty, they should pay for what they did~? A neighbor told me this tonight that another neighbor told her. It does not make sense to me if someone is guilty, they should suffer the consequences.

You are saying if a Jewish person commits a crime you want them to be held accountable, right?

So why are you asking "why is it a sin for someone not to turn them in"

My neighbor told me that her neighbor told her, whose ultra religious. I've never heard of such a thing is why I was asking.

Again, your question as phrased does not make sense.

If it's a sin NOT to turn someone in then a religious person would turn them in!

You want someone who has committed a crime to be held accountable - so therefore you should be happy that not turning people in is considered "sinful", see??

Hypothetically in a closed Orthodox community, the court system to deal with it is taken care of per Talmudic law by the elders of that community. In reality if someone passes information outside of the community to the secular system, they get arrested and judged by the outside community. But it requires someone within the community to break the code of silence.

Yeah, your post is nonsense. If you want to ask a question, re-write it and simplify it.
