In law, an abettor (the general legal spelling) is always present, either actively or constructively, at the commission of the crime; an accessory never. An accomplice is usually a principal; an accessory never. If present, though only to stand outside and keep watch against surprise, one is an abettor, and not an accessory. At common law, an accessory implies a principal, and can not be convicted until after the conviction of the principal; the accomplice or abettor can be convicted as a principal. Accomplice and abettor have nearly the same meaning, but the former is the popular, the latter more distinctively the legal term. Compare APPENDAGE; AUXILIARY.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Whenever an injustice is done, any non-action and neutrality is not appropriate - it's an indirect bullying, I.e. joining the hands of your aggressors, and being an accomplice. Such passive bullies are far worst than those active ones who take an enjoyment in kicking you when you're down. Whether neutral or active, bullies are mean deceitful heartless cowards, who always work in groups to pick on nice and innocent people like you. If you confront these bullies individually, they will shiver and shrink. Be brave, and don't ever give in to bullying.
