Can you get arrested 4 planning or talking about doing a crime that hasn't been committed yet?

legally..

Report as

If they find evidence, like burglary tools all together in a bag, they can get you for conspiracy to commit.

I don't think so. However , if you are planning on doing an explosion in an area and you drew the plan and the date and everything , the police can arrest you. Talking is normal but serious talks can get you in trouble.

If it's a crime, and you actually do it you can get arrested. Even if it hasn't happened yet.

Yep, I forget the legal term but it's something like "plotting to commit illegal acts". You can definitely get in trouble with the law. If you get caught.

Depends on the crime or the case. If a witness or law enforcer has a proof then you will be arrested.

The first part if your answer is correct. The second part is not. Merely knowing about a crime and not reporting it is not a crime.

Talking about doing a crime, may be not. Planning a crime, Yes, of course! What's the police for anyway? It is to PROTECT a crime from happening. They won't let you do it first then get on the court thing then. It would be stupid!

Just talking about it is not a crime. However, planning by more than one person that is accompanied by any concrete steps to carry it out, such as obtaining disguises, casing a target, obtaining weapons, etc. is "conspiracy." And any physical attempt to carry it out, even if you change your mind and walk away, can be "attempt."
