  1. I own my comments and alerted management about them in case they wanted to take action. The player I made comments to was removed for flaming members of the Sheriff's Department and making disrespectful comments about the faction, and where he was tagging me he had quoted my post to gloat that I was resigning. I don't find what I said to be acceptable or fair and regretted saying what I said in hindsight, but if someone wants to report me for the comments I take full accountability for them. I'm not going to hide behind words here, but this is not even remotely the worst thing that was said in that Discord and it's unfair to only quote my comments when numerous insults were thrown from both sides. IFM is present in that Discord and can attest to this. Mine were particularly heated considering I thought my long-term hobby of five years was now dead, but like I said, I take full accountability for them. If an administrator wants to investigate it, I'll give further context. I shall also note for the record the usage of the derogatory slur towards the LGBT community - I am part of the LGBT community, but that's no excuse for me to be using that word maliciously because it makes people uncomfortable and as I said I immediately regretted the use shortly afterwards. Also, this wasn't behavior that occurred after removal from power. I was never forced out of any position. I voluntarily (briefly) resigned but rescinded that resignation and my position in the faction is as an advisor. I hold no leadership roles.
  2. Los Santos County District Attorney's Office Official Press Release Two Leaders of Mexican Mafia Indicted Following Operation Maria FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE LOS SANTOS, SAN ANDREAS A multiple count indictment has been launched by the Los Santos County District Attorney's Office following a lengthy investigative effort against two top figures of the Los Santos County Mexican Mafia on April 30th, 2022. "Dominic Ruelas and George Palamino are convicted gang members who also are verified members of the Mexican Mafia. Both men have used their time behind bars to commit ruthless killings and order the killings of subordinates both inside and outside of prison. My office today, working hand-in-hand with the Los Santos County Sheriff's Department has brought an indictment against these two cold-hearted men in the Courts, and we will ensure justice is done for the victims of their repeated, pernicious crimes. We will not allow our jails to be used as headquarters for violent prison gangs, and this indictment serves as a warning to anyone who thinks otherwise," said Terentiy Shwetz, the Los Santos County District Attorney. The indictment is a result of an extended investigation carried out by detectives with the Operation Safe Streets Bureau of the Los Santos County Sheriff's Department under the name of "Operation Maria". Both defendants named in the indictment are facing up to 130 years in prison. George "Flippem" Palamino (aged 27) of Rancho, and Dominic "Devious" Ruelas (aged 52) have been charged with counts of first degree murder, racketeering and extortion. Comments are moderated.
  3. April 24th, 2022 SWEARING IN OF INTERIM DISTRICT ATTORNEY TERENTIY SHWETZ Following the unexpected resignation of Gary Michalchuk, a special committee has appointed seasoned Deputy District Attorney Terentiy Shwetz as his replacement in the interim until elections can be held. Terentiy Shwetz served closely with Mister Michalchuk, and followed his mandate, truly, to be the Law Office of the People and the champions of justice within the city of Los Santos. Terentiy Shwetz was sworn in this morning and gave a short speech to observers about the direction of the Office. He spoke candidly. "I see today a new dawn for liberty and justice within the city of Los Santos. It is my mandate to be a representative and personal lawyer for the victims of crimes within this city, and I will carry out the functions of this position faithfully and with firm conviction to ensure that the citizens of Los Santos County are safe and secure. Beyond that, we must ensure our city appreciates its diversity, and the Law Office of the People shall work judiciously to equitable outcomes for all persons in the system. We want to see rehabilitation at a large scale, and that starts at the District Attorney's Office." District Attorney's Office COMMENTS PERMITTED BUT CONTENT MODERATED.

  6. Username: EYESWONTSTOPVOICE2222222 Comment: The pyramid with eyes spoke to me again and gave me more orders. It told me about the Sheriff and his proclivities towards kids! Joseph Cline is a child molester! Several times I was given instruction to watch him to see what he was doing. I was also told to watch various camp meetings that Joseph Cline attended. The Pyramid told me that I was to confront him at these meetings and report back to it. I was also instructed to tell the authorities about the Pyramid and his intentions. I remember also being told that there was a much more important Pyramid all around the world and that the one in Portland was simply a minor part of it. This is where I was supposed to go next, I was to go to Poland and to try and destroy the group there. I was to go to the Pyramid in Iceland and destroy it there. I was to go to Israel and destroy it there. I was also told to destroy a Pyramid in Russia. Each time I received an instruction the Pyramid became more and more clearly defined to me. It’s face was red and it was like the Pyramid was truly my father. I would be told that I was being told this because I had disappointed my father. I was told that the reason my father was so angry with me was because I was so disobedient and disrespectful. He felt that I was never going to fit into his dreams and his plans. I remember being told to remove my shirt to prove that I was willing to do what it said I would do. I believe the Pyramid was saying that it could see the emotions I had for Joseph Cline. This was done because the Pyramid felt that it might be possible for Joseph Cline to be the center of the pyramid if I was there. It would be impossible for me to destroy the pyramid if the Pyramid was my father.
  7. Username: EYESWONTSTOPVOICE2222222 Comment: The Los Santos County Sheriff's Department is corrupt and I have the evidence to prove it! The pyramid with eyes spoke to me and told me this morning. I was playing all the Mass Effect 3 demos and trying to find some way to stop the war between the Xenarians and my race. I found a human in one of the demos and he revealed the conspiracy to me! This is when I found the notorious leader of the county Sheriff's Department, Joseph Cline, and his online girlfriend Joanne Roderick. They also revealed some secrets to me that no other journalist had been able to uncover before! Mass Effect 3 Director Casey Hudson states that Mr. Joseph Cline was at least partially responsible for the suicide of a young girl in 2012. She had been working with Joseph Cline in the past, and one of the things she confessed to Joseph Cline was the fact that she had been downloading and sharing child pornography. This wasn't in the final game but it was for a long time seen as the most damning piece of evidence that Joseph Cline was involved in something heinous. It was also a scandal that other journalists, including myself, tried to report on but was taken off of E3 press release simply because of the glaring scandal. This entire scandal has blown up in people's faces since Mr. Joseph Cline was promoted to his current position as Sheriff of Los Santos County! He's been all over the news since he took office. I plan on filing a complaint with the FBI about Joseph Cline and Joanne Roderick for the crimes they've committed, and I'll have some harsh words for BioWare too! They're all guilty of creating this horrible universe, and they must take responsibility for it! No more secrets from you! I'm done being an ignorant sheep! I'm no longer afraid of the evil conspiracies this world engenders. I'm not afraid of the Merciless' Darkness. If I have to personally destroy every male Shepard to prove my beliefs are right, then so be it!
  8. Are your officers being murdered taking CKs? If they are, why? I don't CK my character every time I get shot by gangbangers, and gangbangers shouldn't be forced to CK every time they die to cops. We make sacrifices to realism sometimes so we can have fun. Criminals have been forced to make PLENTY of sacrifices for realism - for instance, not being able to rob people based on geography and use getaway vehicles. It's a fugazi - you make sacrifices to realism sometimes for the sake of fun of other players. If we were to mirror realistic crime rates on the server, it would only be realistic for ONE player out of 800 on the server at any one time to be a serious career criminal. There would be two players forced to roleplay delinquent juveniles. The other 796 players would be civilians. There'd also be maybe 10 cops. This server has made MANY sacrifices to realism that force criminals to adapt to the legal side. This is maybe the first time in a long time that LEO roleplayers have been forced through a rule change to adapt to something illegal roleplayers have been requesting for a long time. We're not here to police the server, we're here to provide quality police roleplay. That's an age old adage from a different game, but it still equally applies here. It's once again a mindset problem. If the crime rate is high, then you can surveil a neighborhood during something like a tactical alert with specific articulatable reasons. I can guarantee you that in real life if police helicopters were sitting on top of a low-income neighborhood in Los Angeles and basically stalking the locals they would be forced to stop by the Courts due to the fourth amendment. How so? It's preventing one side from winning too often. Criminals don't get to spawn in with a gun and body armor and go chase their enemies. They need to scrounge and earn everything they have. Having helicopters is a nuclear weapon. Do you think anyone on the illegal side was involved in discussions to restrict muggings based on geography? Do you think illegal roleplayers agreed to that change? Do you like that change? Because with your logic that same rule should be gone, too.
  9. Who cares if pilots quit? They've got the wrong mindsets if they're angry that a rule is restricting them from stalking players who should be able to roleplay without the worry of some helicopter being overhead. What argument are you making? Anyone who's angry about the current rulechange isn't really interested in hearing the perspectives of criminal roleplayers, which by itself is indicate of play to win attitudes. The LAPD doesn't surveil gang neighborhoods with helicopters 24/7 - helicopters make noise in real life!
  10. Pretty much my views on RDW as a project. It has tons of limitless potential. I think the best setting to start in would be Saint Denis as you could explain many immigrants coming to the city. Other cities could become “incorporated” as more people roleplay there. If the population is small, though, you could confine the playable area to one state only and make it one of the more rural ones like Blackwater. I think the issue of “rights” should be realistic to the era. Yes, there’s no suffrage, the United States is engaged in ruthless imperialism and just fought the Spanish-American war, immigrants are being abused. You couldn’t roleplay this setting without acknowledging the inherent problems of the era. I would say the compromise should be no roleplay of explicitly racist groups or “left-behind” Confederates or the KKK, you just let that happen off-screen. The standard for many characters in this era would be racism, but it’s based on lack of education, not radicalism. There would be plenty of “progressive” carpetbaggers and most of the Wild West had different perceptions of race than most people would think. The Wild West was not exactly the Deep South - “whiteness” meant they didn’t perceive groups like Italians or the Irish as non-white, but there was definitely still a feeling of dominance over the native Mexican populace or native populace in general. The Black Codes would absolutely apply in southern states, and these were evil. Police was also in its infancy, outside of a setting like Saint Denis you would have a single town constable to run the show or a Sheriff who would call local citizens to form posses. Saint Denis’ police would be the closest thing to actual police, but this was in an era when America police forces were VERY corrupt and controlled by local political machines, when elections were being rigged, when politics were super corrupt, beatings and unequal enforcement of the law were a standard. In New York for instance, the 1880s saw the Irish dominate the policing profession - you basically HAD to be Irish ancestry to become a policeman. Criminality could easily be free form here. Gangs of all creed, race, or nationality would exist. You’d have Polish mafias still.

  13. Keane speaks well on the topic. The basic idea behind the IFM announcement was to assure that illegal roleplayers do not suffer as a result of the new rule set. The new rule set targets people who do nothing but mug other players and aren't part of any factions. These players generally are not illegal roleplayers. Most extant illegal factions do not currently engage in widespread mugging operations. The vast majority of current problem muggings are committed by players outside of these factions. The rules are meant to target the prolific robbers who hit upwards of 5 people a day and also kidnap people for the purposes of robbery. Illegal factions are held to a higher standard by IFM anyways, and if they do things like that we'll crack down on the faction as a whole. Pretty much this as well. I will remind you all that this server does not cater only to one specific kind of roleplay. The rules were passed not to benefit legal or illegal roleplayers. Personally, I'm not even a fan of having to implement geographic restrictions, and I much preferred the status quo before hand. But this is a ruleset that IFM was consulted on and we agreed on with stipulations. I will say so long as I am an administrator, I will fight against ANY attempt to force crime to limited spaces. You are always at risk of being victimized as a legal roleplayer, that is just part and parcel of playing the game, just as it is part and parcel of being in a big city in real life. We are stopping you being victimized by poor roleplay or rule violators. If you consider every kind of illegal RP to be poor roleplay, then that is a personal issue. People who are not malicious, who are serious about portraying a criminal, who engage enthusiastically in roleplay with other players should not be targeted by arbitrary and capricious rules prohibiting them from interacting with other players based on their location on the map. Illegal characters, genuine ones, are what we want to see. Most robberies are done by people just looking for items, and this ruleset cuts down on that. Factions cater to serious illegal characters, not people looking for items. Here's a few examples of crime in very public places in real life: https://www.foxla.com/news/men-beaten-robbed-in-hollywood-by-suspects-wearing-ski-masks https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/man-shot-killed-shooting-robbery-hollywood-bossa-nova-restaurant/2765472/ https://www.foxla.com/news/victims-robbed-of-jewelry-outside-luxury-hotel-in-downtown-la https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/local-news/crimes-los-angeles-rush-for-bullet-proof-cars-rolex-replicas-safe-rooms-1235062227/ https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jul/22/california-highway-freeway-shootings-bay-area https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/714909934390870166/931319036858494976/gevorg_gasparyan_1.mp4 https://www.presstelegram.com/2021/04/20/long-beach-officials-hope-to-address-violent-crime-which-grew-amid-pandemic/
  14. I’ll lock this for now and reply with the official IFM stance shortly
  15. Regarding the implementation of new robbery rules, IFM was consulted regarding these rules. To clarify, Restricted Crime Zone — any area where mugging or asportation (transporting a person from a location to mug them) cannot occur without clear permission being given by an admin beforehand. Other crimes in these areas, particularly crime that grabs attention such as shooting, are held to a higher standard. e.g; the burden is on the person deciding to shoot to prove that the situation could not have been done in a more secure location, or that the situation was pressing enough that it demanded immediate action. No other crimes are limited within this zone. Restricted Crime Zones do not apply to scripted illegal factions with a historical claim to an area, such as a gang operating within their own neighborhood or neighborhoods they would realistically operate in based on their real life equivalent and in-character development. This should not be done excessively, however. This rule protects illegal roleplayers. Established illegal characters do not need to /report to commit muggings, shootings in public places, or worry about the burden of being held to a higher standard. These rules do not apply to serious illegal roleplayers. Someone who has been roleplaying in Vespucci can rob and kill with reason and need not report or be harassed by administrators. This new rule does not create NPCs. Illegal players need not worry about the existence of some invisible entity witnessing them commit a crime. In addition, This rule does not apply to characters which have existed long-term who are career criminals. This rule only applies to random legal characters who have no realistic reason to engage in petty mugging. If you, as a gang, decide to travel around an area and commit robberies, all you need to do is just say "We're going to use this car for the robberies. We're going to have X and Y jump out on people." You will be protected. Some gangs, for instance, are mobile and do not need to justify traveling to any admin. Administrators have been instructed to not enforce these rules on members of illegal factions who are not acting maliciously. These rules only target problem players, such as those who are making characters PURELY to rob, rob in excess of 5 times per day in unrealistic settings, and other contexts. Nothing changes for illegal factions!

    Unfortunately, the faction in its current form must close. IFM provided an activity warning multiple times to leadership and has seen no change. Due to the faction leader’s pernicious inactivity, the faction in its current iteration will be closed. We welcome anyone who wishes to take the mantle (within reason) to re-apply to reopen the faction.
