This is entirely hypothetical. I don't have any friends who are criminals.

    It depends on if they are done with their sentence. Befriend a Former criminal if you want. Remorseful ones could use support. Do not befriend Escaping Convicts, however, because he left me handcuffed to a pole.

    No, we have freedom of association
    The only thing that should be a crime is the initiation of force against another. Befriending someone is an act of love and should never be criminalized for any reason.

    It should not be illegal to knowingly befriend a criminal as it is not the governments business who people befriend. If someone goes out and commits a crime with a criminal that should be illegal but befriending a criminal should not. I would consider befriending a criminal bad taste but it should not be illegal.

    Well I am not for aiding & abetting nor being an accessory after the fact, but I think trying to help a criminal rehabilitate or having friends who are ex cons is fine.

    People should be allowed to spend time with whomever they want even third world dictatorships don't make laws like the one your suggesting.

    I guess it would depend on what they did. But people should be free to choose who they spend their time with.

    One of the options was "No, unless they're a sex offender or pedophile."

    I saw that option, but some people are more forgiving than others.

    I almost think it should be illegal to befriend someone like a pedophile, rapist or murderer, but, apart from that, we definitely should be allowed to befriend whoever we want.

    No, but it does not seem real smart

    That isn't your job. Your job is to preach Christ and him crucified, not try to correct their behavior. Leave that up to the work of the Holy Spirit.
