      Kavala is best. 

  2. What do you believe made you entitled to a chace? As I said previously, if you expected anything that is powergaming. I think this is more an observation about the state of what people think is 'good' roleplay than anything. I have recieved a number of messages from members of the police stating that they think I did the right thing, it means nothing. We may always outnumber you but that's where you actually have to be smart? Dumb criminals obviously do not stand a chance against a well resourced, well trained and organised police force. I'd argue that allowing you anymore room for manuver than we already had in this scenario would've been a case of fail RP because of how badly you had planned the whole situation, how poor your negociations were, and how well the police in this scenario outmanuvered you. It's okay to roleplay a 'dumb' criminal, but don't get angry when that means you're dealt with in the way the police would deal with a 'dumb' criminal. You are absoloutely correct.
  3. An issue of excessive force is one for the courts not for a player report. There was still a chance of you winning, you just needed to pick a better escape vehicle. I will repeat once more, I did not know that or expect your vehicle would explode. I am fully aware of Police rules and procedure and followed them at this incident. Once again though, a breach of police rules isn't a rule break anyways - so it's not relevant. I do not have any "mentality" I take each situation as it comes and decide on actions based on the risk . In this case, you turned up to a shop robbery on little moped and expected us to allow you to drive off just because the rules dictate that we should, which I may add - is powergaming in itself. In future feel free to copy the whole rules page out when reporting somebody, it would be easier than simply stacking things that have some vague relevance to the point you're making. I hold the police and myself to a very high standard of roleplay. Your roleplay in this incident was far from excellent itself and in fact - made me consider how poor the quality of roleplay on the server has become - particularly in Police on Gang interactions over the past months, as there has been a rise in crime which is on reflection - nothing like the UK. Your story of being a "dumb" criminal, does not hold up to any test of common sense and it is in no way realistic or provide any form of quality roleplay to anybody. Allowing you to get on your bike and drive 30 seconds around the corner contributes nothing to your RP story and would have, if anything made this whole situation even less realistic or even semi-realistic. It is astounding to me that in this case - I am the one being reported when really - the roleplay leading up to this situation was completely below par and provided me, and others with absoloutely no resemblance of the UK, policing or just life in general. We are a serious roleplay server - there is nothing serious about "dumb" "unorganised" criminals robbing a shop and expecting a police force to allow them to leave when they are clearly outnumbered and outmanned. Many think I have the wrong mentality in this situation, I would suggest that actually - you have completely the wrong mentality here. Anyone who thinks I am here for anything but high quality roleplay is quite frankly just wrong. I have been a member of this community for eight years and have not once been reported for fail RP / low quality RP - if that doesn't prove that I provide a high quality standard of roleplay accross the board I do not know what does.
  4. Good evening, thank-you for your report. I will answer your points in order as to ensure I encapsulate everything you have said into one response here. When arriving on scene, I was informed of largely the same information by others on the ground with me, which played very significantly into my decision-making process in this incident. I will come back to this statement later. I do not know how you have calculated the exact speed of my vehicle at the point of impact, and would appriciate if you could provide evidence of this fact (at least as you describe). If not I would suggest that this point isn't really relevant. You are correct this did result in the vehicle exploding, however, the collision did not in fact result in any "killing", you were both revived and arrested by Charlie Cubbs - and dealt with for the offences you committed. I will provide some evidence that this is not "fail driving" contrary to G1.8, I also explain why in my opinion this was also not RVDM. In the real world - "Lord Morris in Palmer v R stated the following about someone confronted by an intruder or defending himself against attack: If there has been an attack so that defence is reasonably necessary, **it will be recognised that a person defending himself cannot weigh to a nicety the exact measure of his defensive action. "There was no way for me to know that the bike was going to blow up - unfortunately that is just what happened (and no - for context, I didn't actually know this was possible, IRL this would physcially not happen, as you know - things don't just explode). Further to this, I used a pre-emptive strike in line with: "There is no rule in law to say that a person must wait to be struck first before they may defend themselves, (see R v Deana, 2 Cr App R 75)." Guidance from the IOPC states: The use of force was: Authorised Conducted by a properly trained driver Reduced the risk to the general public, others and myself According to the College of Policing: In this case, I avoided the pursuit by utilising an approved pre-emptive tactic. Which as stated above is preferable to a pursuit. A video released below describes the tactic and how it is employed in real life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIeFlRpaync I would therefore argue that my driving does not go contrary to rule G1.8 - whereby the standard of driving is assessed against a "realistic" standard, which I have outlined below. Returning to my earlier point, where you stated that you are "dumb criminals" who are "unorganised", and you also stated "we had it in the back of our minds that we were going to lose the situation". How can you simultaniously claim that I powergamed in this scenario? "There was no way for us as criminals to escape this situation nor win it. This was made as a police win only situation" does not really compare to your initial "we had it in the back of our minds that we were going to lose the situation". It seems to me that you are unhappy with the way that this ended, not that you lost in the first place. I have not seen any evidence that this breaks the rule of Common Sense - and it feels like you've just put this here as I can't really write anything further to argue it, so I guess ultimately, since you've reported me for 4 seperate rule breaks - if it comes to this one I'd argue that there is no breach in the Common Sense rule as I've answered to all your points. I still do not believe I did anything wrong and stand by this. I can accept wrongdoing, however in this case I cannot as I do not believe I made a mistake.
  5. Report a player Your In-game Name: Joseph Tadworth Name and/or ID of the player(s) you are reporting: Triads Which server did the incident take place on: GTA RP Date of the incident: 04/03/22 Time of the incident (GMT) 24hr Format: 145 What best describes this incident ?: RDM, Baiting, Trolling (throwing yourself in front of vehicle), Poor RP Please (in detail) describe the incident: Baiting - Whilst on patrol with Louis and Riley, we were dealing with a broken down lorry next to Legion Lower. A male wearing all black arrived and immidiately was obsructive. I told him to drive on the correct side of the road, which he refused. I activated my blue lights as we were called to gunshots in the north of the city. (See on my minimap the location of the gunshots). The bike followed us, I made attempts to stop the bike from following us (in RP, if somebody is following a police vehicle on blues - procedure is to stop and deal with them for the traffic offence). To do this I initially tried speaking to the person on the bike, who said he wanted us to "prove we're going to an emergency call" (words to that effect). Obviously, that isn't justification to break traffic laws. I attempted to stop the man on the bike to speak to him, he failed to stop, and in combination with two other riders, drove to the Triads turf. From this point the member of the Triads who we asked to get off the bike immidiately started calling up on his radio, saying "I'VE GOT SOME CUNTS COPS HERE". Trolling - The riders of all three bikes continuously drove in front of me, and repeatedly shouted "whats your badge number, that's a court case, do you want to go to court" (and other words to this effect). RDM - Upon arrival at the Triads turf, I told the male he was under arrest for failure to stop for police. He then pulled a knife and without saying anything stabbed me. The rest of the Triads gang proceeded to shoot Riley and Louis who were in the car with me. After stabbing me, the male immidiately said "shoot cops" on his radio. This situation escelated from us asking somebody to drive on the right side of the road, to me being stabbed and a large firefight. I believe the Triads deliberately baited us into the pursuit and drove us back to their compound as they wanted a fight with Police. They provided minimal RP and made very little attempt to speak to us throughout the entire scenario. In my 7 years playing here I have not once made a report, this is by far the worst roleplaying experience I've had on RPUK (Altis or FiveM). I have not attempted to resolve this situation as I do not know the names of any of the people involved. Video is from Louis' POV & this is the maximum length we can get from his recording. This is my first ever report so if I've missed anything or more detail is needed please let me know. Link to any evidence (Youtube/Screenshot): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gou_y4c-mMs This report is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth!: Yes You tried to resolve the situation with the player(s) before reporting: No This is not a revenge report (Abuse will lead to forum/community bans): Yes
