  1. Past hour
  2. So it seems to me that you have an issue with cars being reported stolen. I sill say that when plates are ran, only a fraction of the time they are actually coming up as reported stolen. But we get reports also when people pull locals from the car sometimes too. Not always, but sometimes. That cat that sasha was in was reported stolen to pd by the local that owned it. What sasha issue was that I saw, was that he was never id. No driver license was given. Nothing. Even then, we do not charge people with grand theft auto unless we witness the act. I understand you have an input... but your input has been extremely confusing due to I do not get where it is coming from. If you have any ideas to give to the developers on what you think should be done. Put in a suggestion, I know for a fact when I pull over someone for anything and run the plate and it comes back to someone else but the person driving. Especially a known player. I always ask the person to step out of the car, do what I need to to be safe and for them not to take off. Before trying to establish contact with the original owner. If its reported stolen, well then I must do what I must do.

  4. As somebody not involved in these situations, I hope it will not be seen as an unnecessary interference, but for me there are serious issues with the mechanism of the local's reporting the crimes and how this is interpreted by the police officers involved. This is somewhere what the player knows is enhanced beyond what somebody in that situation IRL would be able to count upon. That is not to say either that much care has not been put into roleplaying by the players or into the server mechanisms - the quality of both is generally very high - but rather that it is an easy trap to fall into. Because it is an in-game mechanism, the player knows that the car is stolen. She has no reason to doubt that the report lacks substance. The game has told her that it is the case and there is no mechanism in place that means she should doubt that mechanism. The player, in full confidence, that the vehicle has been stolen immediately starts the process of arresting the individual. However, the corresponding police character would only know that there is a report that the car is stolen (this is a best case scenario, many cases will involve a report of 'somebody in this area was pulling handles' and not come with such useful information as the plates or may even be misidentified completely, e.g. wrong model or colour). The report that the car is stolen may be malicious (e.g. a nasty prank) or may be mistaken. For example, the car may have been sold and the local reporting it does not know that, the registered owner's friend Michael may be borrowing it for the day or the registered owner may simply be misidentified. New hair cut. Different clothing. Dark night. The person reporting it has misplaced her glasses. It could even just be simply the lawful owner's spouse or child and the person reporting it, while trying to be a good citizen, has made a grave mistake. Because the character may only know that a report has been made, she would need to establish whether in fact the car has been stolen. To establish whether the individual in the vehicle she will have to .do some police work. This would prompt an investigation of the facts, undertaken in such a way that takes into account that the investigating officer may be dealing with somebody who is lawfully in posession of the vehicle This would give the suspect player's character, even if guilty of the offence, to convince the officer that this is not the case (giving a roleplaying opportunity). In the absence of knowledge of whether the car has been stolen, the police officer will need to be cautious. Arresting the lawful owner of a car for her use of her own vehicle, based on a sole report, could be embarrasing. This would end up being ten-times worse if something goes wrong and force needs to be used. An individual, who turns out to be the rightful owner of a vehicle , dying at the hands of an officer who has not done the necessary police work, is likely to leave a serious mark on the officer's career and would likely cause a media frenzy. "POLICE BRUTALLY KILLS TEENAGER DRIVING HIS DAD'S CAR AFTER BEING REPORTED BY MEDLING NEIGHBOUR" Due to the variety of reasons above, even if the police officer has approached the vehicle and immediately ordered the individual to "show me your ID" this may have been overly heavy handed. At the very least, the officer would need to explain "This vehicle has been reported stolen, can we please see your ID?", which presuming innocence would almost certainly be done with the individual still in the car and being dealt with as if she has been acting lawfully. As stated, even after getting the ID, this alone would not establish that the person in the car is not lawfully able to drive the car and so normally further police work is required. In many cases of a grand-theft auto some other reason is available to pull over and identify the individual, such as dangerous, or reckless driving (e.g. the thief has gone joy riding with the car!) But in this case, there was no immediate reason to believe that Sasha was acting unlawfully, other than the report, which as I have hopefully just established is not enough to make it obvious whether or not the car has been stolen. An officer may then try and establish the facts in some other way. For example, contacting the registered owner by phone (this is an NPC of course, but that does not stop you from roleplaying this out). If the officer is willing to bend the rules, she may try and trick the individual into admitting guilt. For example, she could say that two days ago the vehicle was involved in a hit and run and that person will be going to prison for manslaughter. In such case, the suspect might be quite keen to admit stealing the vehicle some ten minutes ago and risk a much lesser charge. This gives the opportunity to be creative, to investigate, to challenge and roleplay with the suspect, not just "Report. Steam roll in. Arrest. Charge. Send to prison." all without even asking the person's name.
  5. Twas watching streamer Chinny when he picked up on this server for a time, and from him I was exposed to good people like Banana_Duck_, floppy_pancakes, Mistato and Nooby117. Needless to say, the twitch community representing Revolution roped in my interest (along with the many players of it of course!). To be entirely honest, I've not once done this kind of roleplay setting before, but I thought "why wait later when I can try it now?" In actuality I've not played GTA in years, so I'd be lying if I didn't credit this community with rekindling my interest in it. So, I've joined the forum just the other day and set myself up a character concept I felt comfortable with. Haven't yet been on the server, but here's hoping to some great times ahead! 😏
  6. I found it through banana ducks stream and Hi everyone!!

  9. Yesterday
  10. THE TRIAL ... Born in Dundee, Scotland. Paddy McGuinness never truly had a colourful past. After a relativley normal upbringing, educated to degree level with a 2:1 BA(Hons) in Criminal Justice at the age of 22; Paddy moved to Glasgow to begin a career as a Junior Barrister for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) where he specialised in the management of violent and sexual offenders. Paddy's hatred for these people was unfathomable and he had felt such passion about making sure that the people that had caused their victims so much emotional trauma, physical pain or at worst even death never saw the light of day outside of a prison cell again that before every trial he would put a contingency in place for what would happen if they were to walk free. Paddy sat as second chair on 73 cases before he took the lead on his first, every single one of those 73 cases he would meticulously plan his sadistic actions if that person ever walked free; but luckily for him - they always received the justice they were due. On Paddy's first case as lead council he was prosecuting a male, 22 years old. He had stabbed his Fiance thirty-two times in the chest before slashing her throat; but it didn't end there ... after he stabbed his fiance he then took a drive to her parents house and poured petrol through the letterbox before throwing a lit match in the house and lighting the place in flames, but with the flames also went any proof that he was ever there. After a 13-week trial the defendant was found NOT-GUILTY through a lack of evidence to prove that he was even at either of the locations, and he also had allibies for both of the murder sites. This resulted in Paddy acting on the contingency that he set forth for every case he'd ever worked on. JUDGE, JURY & EXECUTIONER ... From working on the case for so long, Paddy knew the defendants every move - from the minute he woke up; to the minute he laid in bed at night grinning about the heanus crimes he had committed and how he managed to walk free. Paddy knew that he went to the gym at 5:30AM every morning and caught the bus to his work getting there at exactly 8:40AM. He knew that at 12:20PM every day the defendant would go for his lunch and park on a secluded road in the middle of nowhere so he could smoke some weed on his break. Paddy also knew that the locks on the defendants car didn't work - as this was used in his defence during the trial. On the 14th Feburary 2016 (Fitting, right?) Paddy made his way to the defendants place of work with only a phone, a knife and a plastic bag. He opened the rear passenger door and pushed the button to bring the rear seats down, but just enough so that he could push them down from inside the trunk. Paddy then crawled into the trunk and laid in wait. At 12:20PM the defendant went out to his car and drove to his normal spot. As soon as Paddy felt the vehicle stop, he quietly and slowly pushed the rear seats down and crawled up behind the defendant in the drivers seat. Paddy lifted his head so that he could see the defendant in the rear view mirror and the defendant made eye contact with Paddy. Before he could take his seat belt off Paddy had placed a bag over his head stopping him from breathing and pushed a 12 inch kitchen knife straight through the drivers seat, perforating the defendants lung. Leaving the knife and the plastic bag in situe, Paddy crawled out of the vehicle and walked to a taxi rank nearby, as he got to the taxi rank he knocked on a window ... "Glasgow Airport Please" he said to the driver in a calm deep voice. THE RELOCATION ... Paddy caught a flight to Los Santos, with nothing other than his phone ... he'd purchased tickets online to the states and fled the UK, still to this day not knowing if the Police found the body, or even linked it to him; however to this day, Paddy had never been caught. 6 Months ago Paddy was appointed as the District Attorney to the state of San Andreas after working in legal since he had arrived in Los Santos. The scariest part? Before every single trial - he still writes ... his "CONTINGENCY" ...
  11. KILLIAN'S EARLY YEARS ... Killian was born in Cardiff on the 6th March 1996 to a middle class family who worked full time and earned enough money to life a comfortable lifestyle. It was never difficult for them and they were extremely happy as a family. Killian's dad was a general manager who worked in many different hotels across the country and his mother was a sales manager who primarily took over the position of Sales Manager in whichever hotel his dad got posted at. Killian also had a twin brother which in his earlier years he would be inseperable from. Killian moved from Wales to Scotland at the age of 4 and then from Scotland to England at the age of 6 where he went to school. LIFE AMBITIONS ... When Killian was coming up to taking his GCSE's at around the age of 14 he had a firm grasp on what he wanted to do in life, what direction he wanted to go in and ultimatley how he was going to get there. The only issues he really faced were the ones at home as him and his brother got older. His brother always hung around with the wrong crowd in school and it was a constant battle between Killian and his brother to win their parents affection, but Killian was always the favorite of the two, this caused an unhealthy rivalry to develop. Once his brother found out that Killians life long ambition was to join the Police - this quickly spread around his brothers friendship group and they did everything in their power to make Killian's life a misery. THE DAWSONS DOWNFALL ... At the age of 18 Killian had finished all of his exams and was well on the way to achieving his life dreams. He had applied to his local Police Force as a Constable and been accepted awaiting a start date. On the 15th October 2014, Killian and his brother were both at home and Killian was getting ready for work at a bar in the town he lived near, it was coming up to 9PM and he should have been leaving shortly, what Killian didn't know was that in 10 minutes his life was going to completely change. Shorlty after 9:10PM a car pulls up outside of Killians house and his brother is upstairs. A loud knock on the door draws Killians attention to the two bright yellow figures that he can make out through the translucent glass on the front door. As he unlocks the door and slowly opens it, he is greeted by two Police Officers, one male and one female both wearing high-visibility jackets wearing flat caps; they come inside and Killians brother walks down the stairs; white as a ghost. Their parents had been out for dinner after work and had been in a fatal collission, neother of which made it out alive. Killians brother just looks directly to the door and then bolts ... Killian screams ... "AJAX!!!" A YEAR ON ... Despite the passing of Killians parents, he knew how much joining the Police meant to them and he wasn't going to let them down, but instead; in their memory - join the police and serve his country and community to make them proud, whereas Killian's brother did quite the opposite and fled to the United States to start a new life. Killian did two years service until he was 21 years old in the Police in the UK before also moving to the United States where he decided to attempt to carry on acheiving his dreams ... PRESENT DAY ... A divorced, father of one adopted child. A Senior Police Officer with the Los Santos Police Department. Meet Killian to see how the story develops ...

  16. Two years ago I could finally say that after three years of it, I was depression free. Although not completely happy with how my life was going, it felt really relieving to understand that I was in a better place than I was before. I just want to say that even when it seems like there is no end to the emotions you're feeling and no end to all the negative thoughts you're having, there will be one day. There are a lot of people out there to help. I found professional help and I am seriously glad I did. I learned to say my thoughts out loud and it relieves a lot. There is no need to find immediate solutions to what problems you may have, talking about it already does half the work.
  17. While the ingame likeness is different, Id like to think that Christoph Waltz would be playing Hans Krieger Elijah Wood as Jacob "Sniffer" Hearth And last but not least, Atlas , as the robot Atlas 😉
  18. New city and new ground is oddly refreshing, I do miss the contrast of city smog to luscious countryside. I have a job to do here and this is my new home, I will make this work in what ever way needed. Still awaiting the business acceptance on the Betting operation bring some good money in and possible out of the pocket. That does not stop us from expanding our horizons. The first meeting between the Vice City Mafia and Mad Hat will be soon, conducting the Mad Hat in the correct position is upmost importance. As seen in public eye the apparent dislike between the VCM & Vagos and no sign of cooperation will work in favor for the Mad Hat. Propositioning business with the VCM is imperative to the start of the Mad Hat's journey in the city. " The gangs of this city seem to be on it like a car bonnet" - Albert Wood Remembering who the FUCK we are is important, saying this we will have NO meaning in this city unlike in London and in the North until it has been earned. Business and cooperation is the goals but things change and adaption is key to survival. Recruitment needs to be pushed, we dont just need soldiers we need, smart calculated members. I need to trust these people like they are my own flesh and blood. I can't help but imagine the posters of the British "We need you!". As always a song that will not leave my head, I assume I will listen to it every time I am on my way into the city to conduct the Mad Hat's Business! Until next time,

  21. Inspiring, a few people around me (many I spend a lot of time in-character with) know that I'm not quite alright for one big reason: I have combat-induced PTSD. While that may be difficult for many people to relate to, it opened my eyes when I finally had to step forward, in my uniform, and admit that I was not ok. I expected my career to be over immediately, but what i was met with was more support than i knew what to do with. However, these things tend to trough and crest, and quite recently I'm being re-haunted by some specific incidents i had to endure. Noodle ( @Nova Taylor ) had to wake me from a flailing nightmare my first night off of my night shift. The same nightmare that kicked off a 1-2 week bout of barely sleeping, barely eating, and being incredibly jumpy that several people in the community i had to let know of because of my rapidly shifting attitude. I used to cope with my issues by playing an unhealthy amount of Arma 3 Milsim, where i believe i felt better by using my skills to win fights, kill the enemy, and contribute to a fireteam/squad/platoon again. Since these nightmares came back, the thought of doing that only makes me uneasy, paranoid, and (once again) jumpy. If you're battling demons now, I'm there with you. They may not look or sound the same, but I'm more than happy to lend an ear for however long is needed for you to make your way through it. Many people have come to me ooc to vent about what's going on "in their head" and i can never judge them for doing so, regardless of what they say because i wouldn't want them to judge me for the things that hang over my own head. If you think you need help, take it. I was terrified too. For my relationship, my career, my future, and my life. Now I'm further ahead in my life than i ever thought I could be. I am inspired to continue moving forward for the sake of those left behind, left unattended, and left without help because to not do so, to me, feels like i am letting them down. (again) "As always, take care, and stay safe." -Zach
  22. Ok ill just wait in the room then, thank-you.
