  1. Yeah, I'm fairly certain that the loan was paid off. I'm not sure if the loan company system has since been updated since, but I was either unaware or unable to remove the active loan from the list.
  2. Thank you for the reply. Yes indeed my intent wasn't to hurt the player, the sniper scope is a pin point accuracy weapon, like you said if I wanted to harm the player the shot would have been taken when he was stationary on the vehicle not when he disembarked. Referencing the helicopter situation to this report is I think completely irreverent to this report considering it revolved around different circumstances and had many different factors contributing to the situation. The rule bullet points that you have referenced directly refer to "kill" as appose to damaging property. It's also rather hypocritical bringing past actions into this appeal. I have clearly acknowledged my actions and have assured the senior staff team that more precaution will be taken into account when acting on the words of others. I do also question why the player didn't receive a non-RP warning from the report. It's rather blatant that the actions of the player were promoting rp of a poor quality as we can see him clearly attempt to drive a motorbike while holding a large crate with no additional RP.
  3. Player(s) being reported: Brian Walky Date of interaction reported: 12/08/2019 Unix time stamp from HUD: 1565821497 Your characters name: Paulo Witherfork Other player(s) involved: N/A Specific rule(s) broken: 9. Non-Roleplay (NRP) Actions that are unrealistic or promote poor quality roleplay are considered as non-roleplay. Examples of actions that are considered as non-roleplay: • Cop Baiting - Provoking a reaction from emergency services without a realistic reason. • Mercy Killing - Asking to be killed by a friend (Killing a friend falls under deathmatching). • Unrealistic stunt jumping or the use of an expensive vehicle to ram into other vehicles. • Spawning a scripted work vehicle and using it for crimes or submerging any vehicle in water. • Swimming in water for an unrealistic amount of time or without a destination during a chase. Players who disconnect during roleplay must reconnect and inform other parties in order to resume roleplay. If you are unable to reconnect it may be excused after providing proof. In a situation where a player gets away from an incident where they're being chased/pursued, they must wait 15 minutes before they can logout. Players should not instigate roleplay situations if they do not have time to play it through. Players who ignore answering roleplay commands directed at them, e.g. /do. In a situation where a player’s game crashes or the player is kicked from the server, they should be allowed to have the same advantages as they have had before their leave. How did the player break the rule(s)? Player went to ride a motorbike while holding a crate with both hands which would fall udner "Actions that are unreaslistic or promote poor quality Roleplay" Evidence of rule breach: https://streamable.com/xxqm7
  4. https://streamable.com/xxqm7 @ChuckM The other account was several months back i'm afraid. I also just noticed on how the video shows non- RP from Brian as he attempts to drive a motorbike while holding a crate, which is concerning on how he didn't receive a non-rp warning for actions that promote "poor quality RP".
  5. Account Name: Paulo Character Name: Paulo Witherfork Admin who issued punishment: Chrisy Date Of Punishment: 12/08/2019 Punishment Received: Permanent Ban Your Explanation of what happend: Situation 1 - A pursuit was initiated on a vehicle affiliated with a large gang. During the pursuit officers had reported 2 vehicle actively ramming the police vehicle in the pursuit line which would warrant lethal force. After catching up to the pursuit line the suspect evaded on foot and several officers engaged the suspect. Myself and anther officer were warned for DM due to the suspect video showing no intentional ramming of the officer and it was said to be the PD cruiser driving in front of the vehicle. Situation 2 - PD were notified of an illegal drop and the SWAT team was assembled. I was tasked to take out the Heavy Sniper to stall the vehicle to prevent the suspect evading while being in the possession of illegal weaponry/Ammunition. The suspect left the bike and went to pick up the crate, while off the bike I shot the Bike 3 times to stall the engine and the SWAT team moved in. The suspect mounted his bike and apprehended by the LSPD. The bullet point in the DM guidelines which I was punished for was "Attacking another player with no engagement in roleplay is not allowed" I didn't realize that stalling someones vehicle while it was unoccupied counted as directly attacking someone which is what the rule lead for me to believe, however I've since been informed that property also falls under "attacking another player." Why should your ban be appealed?:Situation 1 comes down to poor communication for me and faults from other players which influenced my actions, I do realize however that I do need to take more caution when authorizing lethal force making sure that I personally witness the intentional vehicular assault. For the second situation I do not view this as such a serious account of DM. For the situation that took place I had RP reasoning to engage the vehicle, there was no intention to hurt the suspect only to stall the vehicle to prevent his escape with either heavy weaponry, or illegal ammunition which would pose as a threat to both the department and the public. Furthermore I have been a active member of the community for 2 and a 1/4 year now with the 2 DM offences being my only punishments beside a non-rp warning. I have dedicated lots of time to the server being a past donator and a reputable member of the eclipse community, and I do not wish for this to be the end of my time with eclipse. I'm now more educated and will take more precaution with my future actions. Post any evidence for further detail: N/A Thank you for taking the time to read the appeal

    ID 12 - DM

    Hello Brian and Chrisy, I'm ID 12 from this RP situation. I will keep my response brief, DM is attacking someone or someones property without any valid RP reason. The shots were directed at the bike to stall the engine, never with the intention to cause you harm. My RP reason was that you would have been in possession of either heavy weapons, heavy weapon ammunition or weapon modifications which pose as a great threat to the department and public safety, the best course of action for that situation was to disable the bike and apprehend the suspect which was a unanimous decision made by the team during the operation. I personally believe that it is more then a good enough reason to damage someone's property if it potentially prevents loss of life. My soul intention was never to kill or cause harm to the player, only to prevent escape. I welcome any further questions from either the Brian or the staff handling the report. Paulo Witherfork
  7. Hello, just to supply some context for the first vid, I was stationed just down the road when around 6 Panic alarms originated from a detective whom was in a foot pursuit of a suspect, I don't have clear recollecting of the events that took place, but I believe that I heard the shots being fired. After turning the corner I saw multiple gang members around the detectives body and a man standing directly over. In order to preserve the life of the officer the suspect was knocked over to prevent further harm to the detective whom had already been killed by the male. I don't see multiple attempts to hit the same person from the videos provided. DM rule "Someone is attempting to take the life of your close friend or ally, or if you have witnessed it happen." With regards to clip number 2, I admit that I should not have hit the vehicle, however that was not my soul intention. It was probably due to dysnc or me misreading the path I though the vehicle was going take. I would also like to request a full unedited version of the situation from before the detective was killed as I believe no demands were given to the detective before she was killed without warning. Sorry for the vague response to the report, the situation took place a couple of weeks back. Please ask any further questions.

    Thank you for your reply Although there were no direct demands, our intentions for him to remain still and present were clear as we were detaining him. His camera angle clearly shows that I had switched to my remington at the moment he was running. I cant make more expicite commands, make a radio call and press my panic alarm at the same time. He knew full well that I was in possession of a shotgun and was easily capable of landing shots when I was running, which for me shows no fear for his life. For a man with multiple serious felony charges including illegal firearm possession I wasn't prepared to let a serious threat to just evade with no resistance. Paulo Witherfork
  10. + 1 Great Suggestion Don't like to recall the amount of times I've been adding charges to criminals and they just say "I've already got maximum sentence". However I do feel some in-prison games like chess should be scripted in to help make prison seem like less of a drag.
  11. Account name:Paulo Character name(s): Paulo Witherfork Admin who issued punishment:Punched Date of punishment:05/06/2019 Punishment received:DM Reason given for punishment:"he did not have a valid reason to shoot at Liam Gunarr. Fear RP clause did not apply as both himself and the other officer were holding tazers and neither of them were aiming weapons, and Liam ran away while Paulo was even less able to react as he was switching weapons. We have decided that shooting the vehicle is justified as it clearly inserted itself into the situation with the sole goal of aiding the escape of Liam, however shooting Liam was excessive and unwarranted, to the point where a DM punishment is necessary." Your explanation of what happened:After attempting to detain Liam myself and a fellow officer pointed a taser towards him, as we went into detain him. During our attempted detainment, a gang related vehicle rolled up with its engine turned on and door wide open allowing an escape route for the suspect. I switched to my remington, and by the time I had the weapon in my hand he ran towards the vehicle and I open fired allowing myself to land 2 shot he entered the car. Why should you appeal be accepted?: As stated by the report statement "Paulo was even less able to react by switching his weapons", in the video you can clearly see that I was able to switch to my Remington and land two shots before he entered the vehicle, due to me being able to land 2 shots on his and the vehicle that clearly shows that my weapon was aimed at the individual which would make him have to comply with the fear. The video which was taken from his perspective shows that he could clearly see my weapon be drawn, which was the reason he started to evade. Because he is now under the fear rp rules, it would justify me to use my lethal force on his as he is "attempting to escape under the fear rp rules". In the original archived report, he admits to attempting to escape. I'm not too sure what he was expecting to happen, I clearly have drawn a weapon, he was being detained and was now evading. This would allow me full rights to shoot at him and the vehicle. If this appeal does get accepted then it shall be followed up by a fear rp report. 13. Fear Roleplay (FRP) Fear roleplay is the concept of roleplaying fear for your character’s safety and life. Examples, where your character’s life is considered to be in direct danger: • When you are on foot or bike and a weapon is aimed at you at close range. • When you’re in a vehicle that is stalled or turned off and a weapon is aimed at you close range. • When the attacker lowers their weapon to type or roleplay, your life remains in direct danger. • Driving a vehicle in an active shootout more than once without the intent of protecting a friend, fleeing with it, or using it as cover. Examples, where your character’s life is NOT considered to be in direct danger: • When you are in a vehicle which engine is not stalled. • When you have a firearm drawn and are facing the other person before they attacked. • When the attacker’s view is obstructed by an object or when they turn their back on you. As a victim, whose life is in direct danger: • You must display reasonable value for your life and comply with the demands of your attacker. • You cannot call 911 or call your friends or allies to aid you. 14. Deathmatch (DM) Deathmatching is the act of attacking a player or their property without a proper roleplay reason. Examples of valid reasons to attack another player: • If they attempt to arrest or hurt you, an ally, or damage your property. • If they report you to the police for a serious crime. • If they are not in compliance with demands, attempt to escape, or call other players for help in a situation where they are required to display fear under fear roleplay rules. A player cannot kill their victim if the victim is in compliance with the demands. A player must allow their victim enough time to comply with the demands. You must give demands via text if used as a reason to attack as VOIP isn’t always heard. Vehicles cannot be used to attack another player more than once including a failed attempt. The act of killing a player with no engagement in roleplay is not allowed. Killing a player that has obeyed all orders and demands during a roleplay situation is allowed, with roleplay, only within 3 hours of: Severe hostile or criminal action is taken against you, e.g. someone is robbing you at gunpoint. (Excluding police aiming a gun at you.) Someone is attempting to take your life. Someone is attempting to take the life of your close friend or ally, or if you have witnessed it happen. You must explain your reason to kill to the player IC and have OOC evidence proving your reason.
  12. Hello All I don't have too much to comment on this matter seeing as most has already been stated in the reply, given by smallboy. However for the sake of the report I shall provide my POV, After losing the Comet due to pursuit interference we decided to engage the Jester which was driving extremely erratically, endangering the lives of the officers and the public. I was unfortunately a little late to catch up to the pursuit line, but received multiple reports from officers about the Jester Ramming cruisers. As stated this would result in lethal force retaliation against the vehicle who now is wanted for multiple felonies, the main one being assault with a deadly weapon against a government employee. After catching up to the pursuit line, I witnessed first hand the reckless driving from the Jester as it sped through the city, failing to maintain lane. At Mirror park, there was indeed contact between his vehicle and other cruisers. This paired alongside the fact that he was clearly "attempting to escape" and failing to comply allowed us full permission to use lethal force in order to apprehend the suspect. Paulo Witherfork

    Okay, thanks for uploading all the footage besides the part where the staff deemed the situation having 0 rule breaks with regards to the trailer, again cropping the footage to make it from a bias perspective, also the trailer has nothing to do with this report so I shall not comment further on the matter. You literally just admitted to attempting to escape, and in the DM rules it says that lethal force can be used when someone is attempting to escape, I'm personally trying to see where any confusion can come from. Like the alaxalex303 has questioned, what did you expect to happen? For me to just wave you off, a wanted felon. No. The only possible argument that I believe you can make is a possible breach of the departments force continuum, which incase you didn't know is classed as an IC issue which intertwines with the possible false charges which again would need to be contested ICly. Furthermore you expect me to type out demands in the split second you were running which is delusional to think I can do that. When you are being detained, I don't need to spell it out to you that you are not to run away, as soon as you run away during a detainment, it's classed as resisting arrest which is effectively attempting to escape. In response to your question Alexalex, the first shot was stop Liam, and make his fear for his life to prevenet him entering the vehicle and escaping with the second shot aimed at the vehicle windscreen to disable the vehicle, again preventing it driving off. If my pure intention of the situation was to stop a wanted felon escaping from the PD's grasps and by doing so I had to use force. Going back to one of my previous points about rewinding the rp, the most recent video is concrete evidence that they were not on scene for at least 5 minutes following the detainment. If you had the courtesy of uploading the full footage as requested, you would see the same blue rapid GT, enter the gas station and start talking during the paused RP. This whole situation would have been avoided if your friends had the decency of waiting the adequate amount of time, no coming in instantly. That factor alone has caused this whole situation to arise. I hope this response has reinforced my previous points, It is now in your own words that you did indeed "attempt to escape". Thank Paulo Witherfork

    Hello Hootless, there has been 0 external communication between myself and the staff handeling the report, I have explained my side of the story already in my previous reply. What you are suggesting by your most recent reply, is that I used excessive force which is classed as an IC issue for breach of department protocol. I also believe that saying you had no fear for you life because you thought I wouldn't shoot, even though my intention was to detain you, isn't a valid excuse. The server rules are clear guidelines and nowhere does it state that PD are exempt from the rules due to their department protocol.

    I have said I all have to say, I will comment further on the matter if requested by the staff handling the report or if further question are asked when the full footage is posted.
