    downcoldkiller got a reaction from iGoDPrince in My stance on OPENIV   
    To the LSPDFR community, those who like/use my mods, and everyone else.
     
    By now I'm sure most if not all of you have heard of the closing of the beloved OpenIV. For those of you who haven't I'll post a link after this. I've spent some of my day reading through the stories relating to the issue, read through may of the responses, signed petitions, etc. It's a sad site for many of us to see OpenIV close, and while we ALL have many questions, comments, and absolute concerns, I thought I would express my stance on the issue and what you can expect from me from this moment forward.
     
    First off, like many of you I am sadden to see the tool and the DEV team close their doors. I remember back in the day when I started out with IV, SparkIV was my go to tool because I finally switched over to the much better OpenIV. That's when I really started getting into modeling and stuff like that, I remember my first download on here was a Dallas emergency services skin set I did for some models. After that I finally managed to finish my first model and get it working for IV. The rest as they say is history. OpenIV for many of us has been a tool that brought us into the spot light within this community, it allowed for many great mods to come from many great dev's. For that we will always be grateful of the time/effort put into the tool.
     
    So with that, I'll explain where I stand. I know that there has been talk of legal action against those who continue to "mod" for V, however I believe this community is far too big for them to issue any kind of legal action against everyone. I understand that many dev's are closing operations within V, I for one will now. This community is amazing and so are the people who visit here. For many of us it has been the birth place of our craft. So I do not intend on quitting the community. I understand that there has been word about a update that will change all of V's modding capabilities, until that is done and it is quite literally impossible for me to continue, I will still bring forth the models I am now. I will also continue to update those that I've released. A lot about this new's is still up in the air, there hasn't been any comment from T2 or R* explaining the situation or what exactly they want. Until then I'll treat it as just another bump in the road that I won't slow down for.
     
    To the modders and dev's who are closing shop. I urge you not to give up on your hobby, yourself, this community, and the people who enjoy your stuff. There is still so much more that can be done and still so much that has not been discovered. 
     
    I wish everyone the best of luck on their future endeavors and I hope for the best of this situation!

    I understand your point of view. I was once there my self before I started modeling and making different things. So I do understand what your saying and the purpose behind it, but I must speak from the perspective of a modeler. The thing with this community is this, it has become very selfish. People (those who don't contribute) way out number those who do. When I see comments DEMANDING the release of a model that has been shown off in the gallery, it makes me angry. Those people don't understand the hard work and time it takes to make the models that have since been released on here. Not every model that is shown off has to or is going to be released. There has become this idea that "if you showcase it, why not release it?" Or "your just showing it off to look cool." I can honestly say that kind of thing makes me not want to release models. Unfortunately thats only one of the problems. The other is the SEVERE lack of respect for peoples; models, parts, dev items, ideas, etc. people go out and abuse the things they are given, either releasing them without permission, claiming them as their own, or ripping models. It has become such a huge problem that no modelers want to release anything. Just because someone post a pic of a model that isn't released or won't be released, doesn't mean their trying to be rude or get publicity. Their doing it because they like to show off their work of art.
    Unfortunately their are growing issues within the community. Not with the community it's self but the people who want to do this kind of thing.

    Good points yet again, we can't see his hands. In either video, nor do we know what led to the different events. I think we could all say that in a normal situation the cameras wouldn't have come out. Something must of sparked the interest of these people to record. Waiting till the end for your final opinion definitely will be the best option.

    I'll wait for the DOJ to finish their investigation before I have a full opinion of the shooting, but I believe these cops are gonna get fucked in one way or another. Even if they're cleared in the investigation, they can't work in that city anymore. Their names are already released, and the media started this narrative of racism & corruption, because the cops were white and the suspect was black, and their bodycams fell off (Making people think the cops were covering it up). And in a city with a big black demographic, there's a good chance of riots. The average person and media outlet will see only see the image of 2 white cops, pinning down and "executing" a black man. So this is not gonna end well for those officers, and the city.
    From what I can see from the video, I think it's justified(we can't see his right hand, and they retrieved a pistol from his right pocket). Sadly the point of views we have, give us a limited view of the things that prompted the shooting.

    I completely agree with that you said 100%. If there is wrong doing than hopefully it will be found and the right actions what ever they may be are taken. I also agree with your statement that yes it is still very early in this investigation to tell really what happened. Videos are good and bad in ways that they offer better support to what someone might be claiming, but they also can distort what really happened 5, 10, even 15 minutes before they started rolling. I hope for a clear and transparent investigation like the mayor has said we will be getting. We need to rebuild the trust with officers and the community because those who are unaware and uneducated on different things tend to be scared of what they don't know. We'll all have to sit back and see what happens.

    It's really too early to draw any conclusion. I am, in all honesty, worried for my friends who currently live in Baton Rouge. Why? It's because violent riots and the decimation of parts of the city is imminent, much like Baltimore, Ferguson, and Chicago. If the officers were in any wrong doing, they should be prosecuted. Hopefully it's before anything violent sparks. I have never supported BLM, and I never will, but I don't want that to sound like a bias when I say that the group has a certain tendency to exaggerate. I won't be taking anything they say into consideration . I'll wait for the police department to say something.

    downcoldkiller got a reaction from xBoii in Girl commits apparent suicide in jail   
    I saw some good comments, and some not so much. I actually live in TX and the first thing that struck me was this Trooper was going to give her a warning for something so minor. There's an old joke that goes around that DPS Troopers (as they are called here) never give warnings.
    First Id like to address that this entire thing could've been avoided had she just remained calm and accepted her warning or citation. Obviously this officer felt she was sorry or corporative and decided she would give her a warning, so had she remained the same cool demeanor she had at first she would've been on her way. Second is the cigarette, I see two issues with this. A) The officer does have the right to ask her to put it out (anyone can ask for something like that), however she was within the confines of her vehicle with no children present and she was on a public road, therefore she is allowed. B) The officers reaction and her reaction were both wrong in my opinion. The officer does hold the right to ask her to set out of the vehicle to issue a citation or warning if it provides a safer area for both parties. She could've A put out the cigarette and continued on or left the vehicle and move to the site to continue. I do feel though that the officer should've continued with his stop despite her refusing to put out the cigarette. Had she had children in the vehicle or been in a area or business that bans smoking then she would've had to comply with the officers order.
    The last thing that Id like to address is that when these situations come up the conversation switches from what happened in the case to the "corruption" of the police force. I feel the best way to get things fixed with the police force (if you feel there are any wrong cause not every city does) is to join or be active in city council meetings. Address your concerns and I'm sure they will be heard, they may not happen immediately but I'm sure they will look into ways of fixing things. Just don't take things into your own hands I.E killing cops, resisting arrest, or failing to comply with simple orders cause that makes things more difficult and stressful for everyone involved. You pay taxes for a reason, so let those people who you pay taxes to handle the situations. They are trained and will handle them professionally. If not then move a little higher up the chain.

    After watching the video, i don't know why she was asked to step out of the vehicle in the first place, it could've been over and done with a simple citation, although she was arrested (failure to comply, resisting arrest?) idk the American law/State law there.
    Judging by the news report (which doesn't share much information) It seems like a suicide at first hand, not a murder. However the officer stopping for 7 seconds and saying "she's fine" is a bit off. Plus you can't really kill someone/make it look like a suicide in 7 seconds. 
    Regardless of what her friends or parents say, not everyone can tell if someone is suicidal or not. most people mask their feelings and pretend to be happy. I can't really have a definite opinion or say if it was actually murder until an autopsy is preformed, it's very hard to cover up a murder as a suicide so it'll be on the autopsy what her cause of death is. 
    just by looking at the news reports i say it's a suicide, by it's also the media.. they're not always reliable so a murder is still in play. Also, just to point out.. why do people instantly assume that a death in police custody is instantly a homicide/the police did it? not every cop in the world is corrupt and wants to kill people. Right now the evidence is pointing towards a suicide, there is little evidence to suggest a murder took place.
    Always follow the evidence, NEVER jump to conclusions! Why? Because conclusions aren't valid and have no fact, Evidence can never lie.

    There is one situation in which law enforcement officers have a license to kill: when carrying out a death sentence. Any other time, it must be justified by the officer: self-defense, defense of others, preventing the escape of a dangerous criminal, and preventing the escape of a prisoner (in some circumstances). The first two are options for everyone; I'm not sure about the latter two.
    @NYPDDetectiveODonnell: I'm really not sure what you're trying to say about cops, but any cop who prioritizes state laws over federal is violating his oath. The oath taken by every police officer binds them to uphold the United States Constitution, and the US Constitution and laws made pursuant to it are supreme over all state laws and everything in any state constitution. There is little difference between a "public official" and a "government official;" one definition of "public" given by Merriam-Webster is "of or relating to a government," and the OED says "public" in the sense of "public servant" means "Serving the public in a professional capacity; (in later use) spec. employed by local or central government." The term "police" itself literally derives from a Latin and ultimately ancient Greek root relating to government ("police," "policy," "politics," "polity," are all related terms).
    I don't find it odd in the least that someone who was a close friend in high school would not remain close once your lives took very different turns. Neither of you is the same person you were in high school, and you are likely not his only friend. I have people I was friends with for 7-ish years in middle and high school who I don't talk to anymore, for the sole reason that we went away to college in different places and are making new sets of friends.

    I'm not a police officer, and I believe in holding public officials and police to a higher standard. I don't, however, believe in the notion that we should label people under a huge umbrella and say that "since x happened everyone who has the same job is also capable of x, therefore we should preemptively assume they will do x given the opportunity". It's an illogical (and frankly un-american) point of view. That's all I'm going to say on this.
    I don't want to make assumptions as to the circumstances of your friendships, but I can tell you that I would genuinely rethink who I consider a friend if any one of them was convicted of a felony regardless of how long I knew them.
