Okay, last night there was a camping trip, a few of us, and we were all pretty drunk. There was a fishing hut nearby, and it was open. We eventually trashed it, like broke the seats and table inside, and destroyed half the front wall, its pretty wrecked. I never instigated it, and i was not the worst, i dont know why i done it, but i did. I left early because afterwards, it got pretty lame, so i was gone at about half 11. This morning, three of the other boys who did start the vandalism were caught by the police, there were reports of vandalism, and the police seen them at the bus station early in the morning and questioned them. My mate said we were at the other side of the river, in another direction, but the police took their names and numbers, plus mine and the other boys who were there, their numbers were given to the police. Now they all want to lie, and tell the police we were away from it, and i dont think this is too wise tbh. Ive been told f i dont go along with it, they will grass me up and deny it. Or if i grass them up, ill get my head kicked in [some of the guys there weren't from round where we live, and wouldn't have a problem doing this] so my dilemma is this, should i go along with the lie or should i tell the police everything or should i tell the police my part in it and not say anything about who else done it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You kinda deserve it for being such a dickhead in the first place.

Every action has a consequence.

Own up to it. Who do you want to deal with? Cops, or strangers? Cops will get you in way more trouble.

The other guys will be sent to jail if they harm you, you know that right?

Aggravated assault...How old are you all?

I know I've ****ed up and i deserve it, and yes some of my friends aren't the most reliable, but is there anyone who can offer up some advice that would help because Im getting enough of the 'your an asshole' and 'you deserve it' and 'im close to kicking you out of ths ****ing house' at home.

I think you should grass all the other guys in and lie about yourself. I hope you get fucked by both the law and these other twats, you stupid little prick.

The power to feel with others give.

i would probably tell the truth. the consequences of lying are far greater than if you tell the truth.

Yeah. Own up to it. Tell the cops you were involved at least. You'll get off the with the least if you own up to it.

You'll get tried as a minor, they'll probably get tried as adults. So, they've got vandalism against them.

Just don't tell the cops anything about them, unless the cops ask. If they ask, there's no point in lying because if they catch you lying, it's BIG trouble.


Good luck

just lie about it..what proof do the cops have you did anything..ull get off

Call in to the police, tell them what happened, without giving your name. Do you live in the UK by any chance?

Either you do what is right (tell the cops everything) or you do what is easy (go along with the crowd). Yeah you may get roughed up if you do what is right but that is part of paying the price for doing what was wrong in the first place.

Own up to it and tell the cops that they say they're gonna f*ck you up. If they try to hurt you they'll just get in more trouble

Seeing as you are from UK, check with your local police for anonymous hotlines or websites, there a loads nowadays.

Dude if i **** up again im out the house and im pretty sure finding somewhere to sleep will be the least of my problems. Im pretty sure what im going to do. Tell everyone else i intend to keep to the lie. Then if i get called up, i will say that yes i did have a hand in the vandalism, i never started it and i wasnt the worst, nor was i alone but i dont want to say any of the names of anyone else who joined in or started it. I have been threatened if i give any names out i will get battered. I want a chance to apologise to the owner, im really sorry and understand what i did was completely wrong, and i want to pay for the damages.

Will the police give me a hard time for not giving up any other names?

Just make sure not to anger the popo. When they ask you a question, answer the question, and that's it. Don't give any more details then needed unless you feel your ass is in hot water.

Yes, you can say that.

But, if they ask you who was in it, DO NOT LIE.

Frankly, since you're an adult now, you can be tried as an adult, and may take some time in a correctional facility. But, they may just let you off with a warning, being the honest person you are, they probably won't be dealing too much your way.

It will be the strangers that will get the most, tell the cops that there is a conspiracy to commit an offence. Which is aggravated assault or battery or, if worst comes to worse, attempted murder.

Sometimes, it's better to tell the truth. If they want to miserable jackasses, don't let them bring you down with them.

Ive accepted im going to get in major trouble, even if i did go along with the lie, we would get caught out anyway, so theres no getting away from it tbh. But my only worry is the giving of other people's names. And i can see that, if they find out i owned up, they would just say it was me and deny it. One of my closest 'mates' told me this. Some friends eh?

I dont intend on lying, but how not giving names, like if they ask was there anyone else, ill say yes. If they ask who, Ill tell them ive been threatened to not say, and i dont want to grass anyone up, im here to answer to what ive done wrong.

I edited my post up there. Sorry about that...

...Anyways, that's a good plan. The other guys are in for some tough times for threatening you. Also, they will probably let you off quite a bit for telling the truth AND you are going to pay for what you've done.
#33
If you don't want to give names you could say that you were too drunk to remember who was with you
