Someone here said they got cheats for The Division, because well, cheats.

Head explodes.

Theres also a post by one of the guys working on the game saying that the hacks can't be addressed with nothing less than a total re-write of part of the code.

FAIL

Glad I passed on it. Cheats were bad in BETA, I assumed they wouldn't address it. They don't care. They sell games and wash, rinse, repeat, move on. BF games and COD games are rampant with cheats. Not one developer cares. They feign interest for headlines, but in reality the game is ruined for most of us.

Anyone playing "The Culling"? Seems like it could be fun depending on some of the rules/setups/idle/etc. Was going to watch some streams. Mockingbird brought to video game world.

Images: Imperial Star Destroyer Tyrant. Thanks Donovon

Need a time lapse.....

My hope is for Battlefield: Gettysburg.

*strokes Colt Model 1860 lovingly*

DoD Source is still one of my favorite games of all time. Wish they would do that era PROPERLY. COD....2? 3? Had great multiplayer with those era weapons.

So your assumption is that I am out there killing all the bad guys? hahahahahahahahah Awesome. You truly believe that I would risk everything I have.....everything I have worked for.....my family, my kids, my house, my freedom, to deal out "justice" for some shitbag turd? This is how absurd your world is. This is how absurd all of this anti police stuff is. You morons believe that we actually would do that. Unreal. We don't get these jobs overnight. This isn't fucking McDonalds. The sky is some sort of magical wonderful for people like you isn't it?

Unfortunately, a few apples are spoiling the whole bunch and making the news on a daily basis. See: Freddy Gray, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Dontre Hamilton, Eric Garner, John Crawford, Walter Scott, etc. Right or wrong, there's a perception out there that the police are dispensing justice on the street.

You can cast that net far and wide for anything. It is foolish to even consider. (looks at how this conversation started......shit)

Does me no good to post anything. Ill go back to observing "head in the sand" mentality.

I'm sad I missed the actual response and that the rest of this got so ugly. I hope you don't feel like people won't give your opinion a fair shake, I was just in a meeting otherwise I would've read and responded

eh, typical BN stuff. One word gets focused on, yelling, name calling, hurt feelings, then the wheels fall off. No biggie! I somehow got turned into a hooded executioner. Think I'll go start a new game of Skyrim.

Good lord.....why do you think people don't commit crimes? BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY WILL BE PUNSIHED IF CAUGHT! So why do people commit crimes over and over? BECAUSE IN THE SMALL CHANCE THEY ARE CAUGHT THEY KNOW THERE ARE SMALL TO NO CONSEQUENCES!

This is actually a very controversial opinion, with there being more evidence to the contrary. Using prison, or even death, as a deterrent doesn't seem to be very effective and is a particularly nihilistic view of humanity. It's akin to saying Jesus is the only reason we don't kill each other, and therefore we all need religion.

well, I once did hear "Yall motherf****rs need jesus", but that was when I had cable....

What the hell else do you think that word means? You said you wish you could publicly execute a population of criminals that has a lower occurrence of repeat offense than most other crimes.

I don't deal in justice. I deal in enforcement.
Which is EXACTLY why it's so scary to hear the detachment between what you "wish" you could do compared to what you were actually sent out there to do.

In your years of experience as an officer did you ever see evidence that "punishment" was a significant deterrent to the occurrence of a crime? These people need help, they need to be identified earlier through more effective mental health programs and screening. Killing them all "after the fact" does absolutely nothing to stop the next child from getting molested by the next person.

Wow. You see, the reality is that the states won't ever spend money on that stuff. So good luck with that. Minnesota is currently discussing letting the majority of sex offenders out.....I would love to sign people like you up to go talk to the parents of the next kid molested. With your magic wand to spend money to fix these people.

It's too bad that you didn't even actually READ through that article you just linked Bats, because it completely disproves your entire "they can't be fixed" argument. It literally says that sexual predators have a lower recidivism rate than general crime stats... but you just want to murder them anyway.

Wish we could publicly execute CP users and molesters.
Not sure why it matters what the person does for a job

I'm pretty sure the problem is that he did read the words you said. You seem to be OK with just glossing right over the fact that you just advocated for public execution instead of punishment and rehabilitation and are woefully ignorant of the fact that when someone with a police background says things like that... it worries the rest of us. It makes me glad that you are Retired because you have some horrific ideas about dispensation of justice.

Because I said wish? Dispensation of Justice? ugh. Why do I bother......I am not sure you understand my job. I don't deal in justice. I deal in enforcement. Judges deal with this thing you call "justice". I just have the tedious job of bringing them before a judge that usually lets them out within 36 hours, then pick up the pieces again and again.

Cherry pick the article all you want. There are several quoted items in there that says the opposite.

Sex offenders in Illinois do not appear to commit future offenses, in general, at a higher rate than do other offenders. However they may have higher levels of recidivism for their crimes than other types of offenders exhibit for their particular offenses.

Article is all over the place - but there is plenty of ammo for either side.....notice the longer they do their study, the HIGHER the rate. In fact, if you just read the summary, my point is supported. Don't even know why I bother. Not sure you even read the article.

I sometimes have lapses in memory and for some reason think people here are nice, then remember that because of my job I am hated. I'll just go back to reading and observing the nonsense.

The amount of craziness surrounding your service in that area is mind boggling. I don't know of anyone that has as many connectivity issues across all levels of service as you!

Now you know two. I have Suddenlink out to the house at least twice a week and have had them that way for the last 6 months or so. I'd switch...if the only other option wasn't radio at 1.5Mbps and a 10GB hard cap.

What issues are they finding? Seems crazy.
