  1. The Vehicle rule I agree with, Same as changing that if someone is stood in front of your car pointing a gun, You should be allowed to run them over, Let's face it, Regardless of my car, In RL If someones stood in front of my car aiming a gun at me, depending how close they are, I'm hitting the accelerator and ducking below the dashboard - I'm running that person over, It's unrealistic to think you would just get out and go "Hey, feel free to rob me, and potentially kill me" - Whats mroe realistic here? From what I understand, If someone robs you, you have upto 3 IRL hours to be able to retaliate, I may be wrong, but that seems to be how it works - So the DM rule change I dont feel would be valid. And, yes if someone is in compliance, You should still be able to kill them, depending on the situation, a normal street robbery, would be pointless to kill someone, but if they are identifiably in a gang, sure you should be able to shoot em up after, because you can bet yourself they are going to find you later otherwise. For what it's worth, I robbed someone once, and killed them, they did everything I asked, but I still killed them, why? Because he told me I was making a mistake, he was in a big gang, and he would get me later... The guy threatened me while I had him at gunpoint... So I killed him
  2. I got 8 hours for interfering with a chase... Here you are saying 8 hours is only possible for murdering a couple of officers... 1, Granted it's against the law, end of, but being tailed for 20 minutes and pulled over every time, that is just short of harrassment, you ticketed me once, go solve some real crimes? 2,4, 5 I was pulled over, not told why, all I got was license? - Heres your ticket... 3, So your not required to tell me what I am going jail for? Untill I am in jail? Like no officer ever has took me to jail then gave me a chance to rp the charges... So that contradicts you there 6, Was used loosely as a metaphor, I'll dumb it down... PD rarely ever ever want to give anyone a chance to RP there crimes or charges, Just outright cuffs/jail with a couple /me's /do's thrown in there aka (Shoot first not ask questions later) In regards to IA reports, there's enough ex PD around that tells people IA is just basically ignored and at most you get a slap on the wrist... It's a complete waste of time, regardless if an officer loses his job or not, and some of it is criminal, but not followed up on, I havent yet seen an officer sent to prison for corruptness while on-duty...
  3. Definately need a Justice system here, With such long jail times, Stacking charges etc... Other servers have it, and it works really well, If anything it brings RP and bridges the gap between PD and Criminals, you would see a lot less hate posts, considering the PG rule states others should be able to RP a response, Criminals are robbed of that the moment they are in cuffs... I'm aware your not speaking for IA, and nor is this an IA report, but why should I waste my time filling in an IA, when in-game, asking to speak with a higher up over stuff, they are generally antagonising and rude (Only spoke with 2)... From those two interactions alone, and the fact all the officer will get is a "Warning"... I'm not going to get back 8 hours of my life (4 -6 Once charges are dropped), That time is gone, I could have been earning 5k every 15 minutes from the mine, that's an easy 100k over that time period (Possible not saying I would though)... Or been rp'ing... I may or may not get those charges dropped, and honestly I mean no offense, Your own take on that is biased, your looking at what I did wrong, not what the officer did wrong, then swinging it around to effectively say "Shit happens, you were involved"... Seeing someone leave a scene of a crime doesn't mean they were involved. And considering the guy they chased from the situation was arrested, from the same crime, he literally got evading that was it... 45 minutes in jail, My passenger got 15 minutes... Me, I got 8 hours.... That's why i'm pissed, that's why I know they stacked charges, and all PD will do, Is just blow it off... Charge stacking needs to be a rule, or they need to incorporate a justice system - One bad day for an officer, could ruin 10 peoples experience here. Same for other factions, except they can't "Jail" someone for multiple hours, They can't trace phones, they have to work and RP situations, PD just roll up, expect to put you in cuffs, and cart you to jail for a long ass time.... That is the fine line as to why people have not got much respect for PD these days, and why they expect RP to be 10x better than everyone else, every server, the police are the front of the server and should act / behave like so
  4. By stacking charges.... I was charged with attempted murder on a government official, A part that was deemed invalidRP by an admin, So I shouldn't have been charged for it... Knife charge - Was added on just because they wanted to keep me in for longer, It had nothing to do with the crime, Wasn't used in any threatening circumstances, Just had it on me. Assault with a deadly weapon - Apparantly I was consistently ramming officers with my vehicle, which I didn't, But I was charged for it Armed Robbery - There was no proof I even did this, and there was others wearing the exact same outfits (Until I showed my video on the report) I can understand the Interfering with justice, felony invasion etc... And let me get this straight, If I do a crime, or anyone does a crime, It's fair game to go to jail, and no ones asking for "Leniency" - But when BS charges are added on, and no allowance to RP charges, and pure denial to even be told your charges, because they know they added some BS charges on, That isn't on! - Again, I do a crime, do the time... But I just listed 4 charges up there, that shouldn't be there - The officer offered to "Compensate" the day after but that was only the fines, what about the 4 hours + I lost due to him abusing this fact? As said in the report, I'd rather deal with people breaking NRP constantly and Low-key metagaming than deal with officers who stack charges, putting you in a position that you can't rp any of it, and can't even play with your friends, all because he had a bad day? And your response, No offense, Is exactly why people don't trust the IA report process - It is a two way street, and believe me, When I'm in jail I try and RP with the guards (Strip dances when changing etc) just to make it fun - But it's hard to RP with an officer who won't listen to reason, or give you chance to explain why some stuff has been done? A RL Scenario - Your walking down the street, See an old lady get mugged and a kid knocked over, you intervene and beat the shit out of the guy who done it, He clearly needs to learn some respect, Police turn up and arrest you for assault - You broke the law, But the officers in RL would give you a lesser sentence due to the circumstances, Or let you off - Here, You get charges stacked without being told...
  5. Sure, against my better judgement - Apparantly this report is purely IC Issues Failed to tell me my charges until AFTER I had served 8 hours, Stacked charges, Even put it down to "Poor" Police work, Regardless of the outcome people can see for themselves. And as most of the others have said here, No one has faith in the IA Reports - That sheriff should be let go of PD, and anyone else who "Stacks" charges or fails to give another a chance to RP Charges
  6. How about consistently tailing someone and pulling them over every 20 seconds to give them a ticket for going 5km/h over the limit? The lack of RP'ing charges given The lack of telling people their charges The consistency of stacking charges for the sake of it The lack of RP at a traffic stop The current attitude of shoot first, dont ask later... There is a lot wrong, as the main faction representing the server, the quality of RP is literally zero
  7. So be better criminals... Pinging our phone numbers which you didn't get IC... Sure, Switch off the phone I guess... Stacking charges to keep people in jail longer - Corrupt, Not dealt with in an OOC level Truth is, there is hate with the cops atm, They should be setting the standard for the servers RP, and not just chasing/ramming/shooting shit, get someone in cuffs, don't RP their charges, and just slam them in prison. I've had two or three Interactions with officers which were good, the rest has all been one-sided with no chance to RP charges etc, I'm lucky if they even tell me what they are... And they are the ones arresting people
  8. Pit manouver... Acceptable Side ram 1, No Att Side ram 2, No The DM rule states you can only use a vehicle to attack a player once, The pit manouver would have been that attempt - So what was the reason for the second ram, and the third attempt, by yourself on the beach at high speed? I get it, you just made moderator congratulations, You should set a standard for responsibility and RP, Not just do what you want and then put it all down to "IC Issues"... You know yourself this report would have been accepted against joe blogs for NRP, VDM, Metagaming and Powergaming, your just arguing because your in the report, when you know yourself that NRP "Leave" when in a vehicle in a vehicle chase would have been actioned, The Metagaming would have been actioned, The VDM's would have been actioned, and the powergaming, because I was given no chance to RP any of my charges... - But yes, this is just an IC issue isn't it? Your not the only one reported here, but you are consistently back and forth, trying to pass it off as just IC issues, It isn't... If you all had just admitted and apologized at the start I would have dropped the report, Instead of boycotting and trying to pass it off as IC issues, because you are staff. The stacking charges, should be dealt with OOC, It causes more long term harm than half of the rules of the server, That is fact, and seeming as this report is being dealt with by a senior admin, I am within my right to broach that topic here, considering some of this, Is relevant to the charges being stacked... Would you like to spend 8 hours in-game, somewhere where there is nothing to do, for something that you didn't do and/or shouldn't be added on? I'd rather see people driving with boxes, after forgetting to rp where they placed, than be on a server that thinks its totally fine to warn/ban someone for that, but do nothing on an OOC level of cops stacking charges, just because they take a dis-like to them or are having a bad day and want to vent that onto others, It does nothing for the server, What I am asking would only make the server a better place, not worse, I am not being malicous or having a vendetta about it, but it makes no sense to me or half of the people on the server, why cops can get away with MG'ing, PG'ing and stacking charges on an OOC level, when they ruin the interactions for so many people.
  9. Thanks, You saw me leaving the scene, but not involved in the robbery... The farmer also left the scene for what it's worth. And the multiple times I was rammed, Isn't an IC issue - Neither is the shouting from vehicles in a vehicle chase, nor is the chance to RP any of my charges (Stacked or not)...
  10. So let me get this straight - I was sent an /Ido but it doesn't show on my end, but that's not my problem and is your escape goat to get out of this... Okay... Not going to win this one am I? Well, you were the one leading the chase - Out of the 12 or so police cars present, Not one decided they would try and pursue me untill I rolled right up at the end when you caught my friend? - But as the one who witnessed everything, did it not cross your mind to tell your fellow officers I was also involved, like maybe when you caused me to stall after the pitbox manouver? It doesn't make any sense... I never said you were the one to tell me to leave - That was JK So you had every intent of chasing and pursuing me after the intial pursuit? So I wasn't involved in the initial pursuit right? So I couldn't have been at the robbery right?... Not to mention, i could have just slipped away and hidden away at any point, so clearly I wasn't of any concern in the robbery right, like not even there? maybe? My faith in IA isn't your concern no, But the fact you think I am asking you to sort this, says it all on where this report is going.... The proper way of handling this, would be to have something that is more serious than any metagame or NRP concern dealt with appropiately within the rules, by staff. And for what it's worth my opinion and view is shared with 100% of people that I have met within this server, apart from cops... So what does that tell you?
  11. What RP did you attempt to have? "Radios through to sieze the dashcam" - 24: 30 - 24:50 Was as much RP about the dashcam, Please show me where I was talking about the gopro in that situation? So if this is the case, why was my two friends that were arrested aswel, not done for the robbery? Which the chase started from? Yet I was the only one? So, You applied charges twice, as can be seen in the video - You were also the arresting officer - There was no RP of my knife being taken, As soon as I was pulled back and redhot said I broke NRP, I was placed in cuffs and everything took off me before I had even sorted my video out to show my version of events. So twice now, This "Poor police work" cost me IRL time, to getting back and enjoying the game, I was punished for my rule break and it appears you guys are going to get let off and passed off as an "IC Issue"... So I got an OOC Punishment and an IC Punishment, for the same thing... You guys rammed me multiple times, You also failed to stop and arrest me as @Archaeah says: "1:04 - telling or attempting to tell you to leave doesn't also mean you weren't a suspect. This doesn't prove anything to me." (They were telling me to leave when they were in Vehicles in a vehicle chase?) - And if that doesn't prove anything to you, I'd suggest you watch the whole video It's clear throughout they were not chasing me or attempting to stop / arrest me. Again, Any other report The NRP would have been accepted for shouting from their vehicle in a vehicle chase. The VDM where they rammed me multiple times, would have been accepted. The Metagaming would have been accepted, as they couldn't "Positively" ID me, and out of the three of us from the actual robbery, which were arrested, I was the only one charged. The "Stacking charges" - I bought here, as it is a recurring problem, and people do not have faith in the IA reports, they do not work - and should be dealt with OOC to reflect the responsibility given to said players, Ruining peoples game time etc, just because they can is worse than any metagaming, or "Shouting from a vehicle within a car chase", That's just common sense, and why I am asking you to deal with it as it should be.
  12. I did not show this to any officer that day, as far as I am aware, I had thrown my ID in a bush a day prior, which I was attempting to find the Image, Not powergaming something I did when I was in Russian Maffia - The image got lost in the chat though. Seeming as I had RP'd throwing it in a bush, I did not RP finding it again, So fail to see how this is powergaming Im getting that slowly - GTAV RP is new to me They never used /Ido - So fail to see how that is relevant here if not used, Also they did not say to search the car for my ID - They ran the registration on my car, which for what it's worth could have been anyones car, that is clear in the video No Internal affairs - I'll come back to this point This, I did this IC as it is the only way to prove what he did was wrong and malicous. Truth is they Metagamed my ID for the robbery, abused the situation and left me for 8 hours in jail (Which was probably a little bit longer due to the server constantly going down) - Now, IC had extra hours added for stuff not relevant, no chance to RP any of my charges, Didn't regain the legal items when leaving, and had an absolute rubbish ending to what could have been a good situation, all because as you can tell by cbullets tone of voice, he was pissed about something when dealing with me... So you can state it's IC all you like, They VDM'd multiple times, stacked charges, Metagamed and powergamed situations - If this report was on anyone else other than staff, It would have been accepted (with debate over what you call IC stuff). Now as to why I am pressing the "IC issue" here - Police, Have a responsibility of putting people out of the game for huge lengths of time, by placing them in jail, where there is nothing to do, They should be held to a higher accountability for RP, and if they abuse situations, they should be held accountable out of character, as all an IA report is going to do, is either give them a warning and/or remove them from the police (If that) - For ruining someones experience on the server, placing them in a situation where they cannot do anything for real life hours - I mean ultimately it is up to you guys whether you are going to acknowledge that some police abuse this, and actually start punishing OOC, as ultimately pretty much everyone knows nothing comes from IA reports anyway - I've been on this server roughly a month, and everyone says it's useless, By choosing to sort this OOC, People will RP crimes more, Police will RP more... As soon as your in cuffs now, theres nothing a criminal can do to defend himself even against the extra charges, and this is why I am pushing this here, It's just common sense, Stacking charges is worse than the metagaming of my ID for the robbery, why? Because I had to do nothing for 8 hours straight just to get back into the game, while in the game, at least with the metagaming side, I wouldn't have lost anything I wasn't going to lose anyway
  13. Theres a good program on Steam called Driver Booster, It's actually really good for updating drivers
  14. Just to clarify, He wasn't talking about resetting, but re-installing Windows, It would probably work, but not very helpful here... And yes, uninstall and re-install your GPU driver - Restart your laptop after uninstalling, and do a clean install
  15. How would this help other than losing potential files etc that you may not wish to lose? and waste time re-installing? I mean, It would solve it short term, but then it could be a faulty driver, which a re-install wouldn't help, as the problem would persist even after
