...that this drug dealer had lots of cash on hand. They contacted the local officials.
Obviously the Amtrak the officials are not very competent, hence the job with Amtrak, at duties with regards to parallel construction. Parallel construction is a legitimate law enforcement tool used for over 3 decades.
Translation from Libertarian Uberspeak to English:
Man previously arrested for smuggling cigarettes, found in another state with lots of cash from sale of other illegal cigarettes. Money was confiscated. Outraged Msulim Drug Dealer demands his money back.
"Thanks for the info – short, simple and relevant, just the way I love it"
wtf nina, are you delusional? how is that short and to the point?
as usual the writer took this as another opportunity to shove his libertarian BS down everyone's throat and then the readers as usual engage in a circle jerk about non-existent rights to cheating and fraud.
First of all, can you please stop writing in your absurd opinions and just stick to the facts? Is that too much to ask?
"The question is why it's a criminal matter rather than a civil one."
Yes and No.
The gaming companies have discovered that a policy of obfuscation and appeasement work better than direct confrontation. This has led to a community of delusional, easily fooled children, who do not understand higher moral principles at work here. Basically, instead of spending money trying to fix the problem, we are going to engage in a campaign of disinformation and viral marketing, in order to instead convince enough people that there is no problem. (i.e. sure the footballs were illegally deflated, but the game wasn't affected mentality)
League of Legends one of the most popular games is full of this type of intrinsic fraud, maintained by an army of delusion mentally malformed children, who don't know any better and don't have fully developed moral centers in their brains. Very similar to the Nazi Youth or Stalin's 'Pioneers'
One response by John Fenderson to a criminal cheater si: "So you don't care that you're ruining the game for everyone else? This is borderline sociopathic behavior."
Why borderline? If not clinically insane then this is straight up sociopathic behavior, well over the border, and into the suburbs of Mexico City itself. This individual should be rotting in prison.However, because Riot Games and similar low life profit maximizing companies have failed to build their wall but have lied and told their users that a wall exists.
An Anonymous Coward made pseudo-edgy comment: "If I am a player and others are cheating, my gaming experienced can be diminished."
Can be? Can? If I pay money and/or invest my time, i.e. labor into a game that has made the claim of assessing personal skill, then a cheater is not a philosophical slap in the
face, it is a PURE THEFT and SLAVERY! My time has been STOLEN from me, first by the gaming company through fraud, and more importantly by some sniveling little nerd
with slow reflexes. That person is no different than a thief walking into your home and stealing your coffee maker.
I would go one step further, if a company like Riot Games does not do everything in its power to maintain the integrity of it's own gameplay, then they should held criminally liable as well. Sorry folks you shouldn't be able to go around squawking about "e-sports" while at the same not doing shit about rampant cheating and exploitation.
"BANNING WON'T END CHEATING"
It doesn't fucking matter! The company making the game MUST put forth a sincere effort to exterminate cheaters, and if they don't, like Rioting Games League of Legends or Blizzard's WarCrafting, then the companies executive should be held criminally liable for fraud. Lyte should have to face trial in criminal and civil court. The cheat makers should also be held criminally accountable. It's a principle here at work, the effort itself is what is important with regards to the maker of the game.
But the sub-optimal grey matter of the readership here, still doesn't get it, over and over again we get comments like this:
"Why is it the government's job to protect the business model of game makers?"
Because many of these games are now claiming to be "e-sports" and trying to expand their business through universities and schools as some sort of competition similar to a sporting event. If that's the case then they have crossed the Rubicon from simple entertainment.
TL;DR Creating 'cheats' and 'hacks' is tantamount to THEFT and SLAVERY and won't stop until they are physically stopped from accessing the internet through the force of state. I have a right as a cheat-free gamer to play a game free of cheats and hacks. Cheating at a game is no different than fraud, physical violence, and forced slavery.
If I told you, here's is League of Legends, the ranked ladder is full of cheaters using hacks and exploits, would you still play? No. However, if I lie to you, then you play, I have now stolen your labor through fraud.
Gaming companies don't have morals, and found it easier and more profitable to lie about ranked integrity rather than fight cheaters. Therefore, companies which do this must also be held criminally liable for fraud.
Cheaters are just like child molesters, THEY WILL NOT STOP THERE IS REHABILITATION, therefore they must be removed from society in order to stop them. I also would not opposed to having a registry and map of those who cheat in games.
The only known life in this Galaxy and Universe exists here on Earth.
Coulda, Woulda, Crap Speculative Nonsense.
There is no life on Europe, there is no life on Titan, there is no life on Mars.
You people need to get this through your thick heads already.
There is barely any life here on earth at the poles, so there isn't gonna be any life out in our Solar System.
Life doesn't always find a way, if it did, then mountains would be covered in Trees, but they aren't, there is a tree line, and above that, there isn't any life, so there isn't life in radiation soaked outer space.
The 'native' americans owned lots of slaves and also made blood sacrifices to their gods. Enemies who lost were captured and later had their hearts ripped out of their chests while they were still alive.
