Let's say you witness a crime.
What type/who does this have to happen to for you to contact the police?
Would you contact the police regardless, if you see any crime?

Now that's snitching. And besides, you can't give us this option without further details like this for it to register a worthy response.

And in answer, no I would not.

Murder, rape, kidnapping, robbery/burglary, car theft,etc. are things I would be willing to call the cops for. Basically, I would report a more major crime, if it's something like seeing someone doing drugs, shoplifting, or two people getting into a typical fist fight, I wouldn't bother. The only crime I've ever witnessed and reported to the police was a hit & run that some drunk driver did, which I also had to appear in court for as a witness.

If it's something on the level of shoplifting, I would likely give a disapproving look but I wouldn't call the police. But if someone were actually getting hurt or threatened such as in the case of a mugging, assault, or obviously rape and murder, then of course I would.

You already have been. With the m&m incident.

What type of crime do you need to see happen before you contact the police?

One that is not committed by a friend. Meaning, I would not report a friend to the police. Because that is snitching.

from jay walking to rape

Oh, some things in between. The police wouldn't think you were being serious if you reported jay walking. And I'm referring to your country because it's not illegal to "jay walk".

It depends on the person. If he, or she, looks like they don't have much money I won't snitch unless its murder. If they drive a nice car, have nice clothes, or look like money I'll gleefully watch them get arrested.

If it means someone will die or get hurt i'll contact the police. Minor stuff like jay walking and and such doesn't bother me

Hell yeah I would. Citizens duty to keeping the neighborhood safe.

This one time my buddy and I were really high and we were driving around. This bigass truck was driving alongside us, we were in the middle lane, he was in the left lane...and he eventually drifted further away from us, popped the curb, and went on the other side of the road. He was swerving all OVER the place. Could not control his vehicle.

In our stoned stupor, we were amazed at how drunk this guy was...so we called the cops. The operator instructed me to turn on my hazard lights, and I eased back and just kinda watched him do all this shit. He pulled over....got out, car still running, and stood in a front yard as I drove past, still on the phone with the operator...as I got a couple of car lengths away from him, he got back into his car, and started to follow me...stoner paranoia kicking in like I thought he was about to chase me down to ram my car or beat us up, I turned right...and FLYING UP ON US from the opposite end of traffic, was a local cop.

His window was rolled down he stopped, I stopped. I roll mine down, still on the phone, and he's like "WHERE IS HE." and I'm trying not to act stoned, I'm like "he should be turning from behind me any moment now." Sure enough, the truck creeps over and him and another cop CONVERGE on his ass.

The operator instructed me to wait at a nearby parking lot, where my buddy and I are laughing our asses off, talking about the superiority of being stoned as opposed to drunk. They call us over to where they pulled him over, we pretty much told the officer everything we saw, and he's like "Cool, this guy will getting a DUI."

Luckily, we're smart enough not to smoke in the car, or carry with us, but it was a really funny moment that I'll never forget. The vigilante stoners snitched out a drunk.

If there was a violent attack or murder, or a large amount of theft such as carjacking, robbery or mugging, as opposed to shoplifting a candy bar. I would report something causing a lot of damage, like arson, that could put a lot of people in danger or destroy someone else's property. Rape or molestation I would report as well.

Drugs aren't a big deal for me, and although I would never get involved with that, I also wouldn't feel the need to report it. Prostitution as well isn't a big deal for me, so I wouldn't report it.

Well, how serious of a crime was it? Small on the level of shoplifting? Medium on the level of car theft? Medium-high on the level of mugging? Higher?

If I saw somebody stealing something, I would look the other way, they would probably get caught anyway. If I witnessed a murder, I would call the police in a heartbeat, regardless of who did it.

i most likely wouldn't

for a minor crime, like shoplifting or speeding or something, i'd just think "whatever"

for a violent crime, like rape, murder, assault, i'd be too scared to do anything, most likely
