Complicity - I'm confused[edit]

This article is confusing and potentially misleading, in particular the first two or three paragraphs.

"An individual is complicit in a crime if he is aware of its occurrence and has the ability to report the crime, but fails to do so." Any such statement should be contextualized. In whose eyes? In which nation? This statement isn't referenced, and it doesn't match the definitions of complicity in the referenced articles.

" Usually complicity is not a crime although this sometimes conflicts with popular perception. At a certain point a person that is complicit in a crime may become a conspirator depending on the degree of involvement by the individual and whether a crime was completed or not." This suggests that conspiracy is the only criminal form of complicity, which is not consistent with the rest of the article or the referenced articles, which treat being an accomplice as likely criminal.

(The article also ought to be clearer about whether being an accomplice and being complicit are considered as synonymous.)

Anyway, it all needs tidying up.
