Welcome back to another episode of CanineEnforcement’s rants, today I’ll be discussing some of my problems with some (mainly one) of Firestone’s departments. Recently, if you haven’t heard, Agent Lidels of the Firestone Department of Homeland Security’s Crisis Response Team was suspended over allegations of causing the deaths of a hostage and other parties at the scene of a hostage situation in Stapleton County, Firestone. Whether or not these allegations stand true, is not up to me to decide and frankly I’m not going to discuss that. However, this incident has drawn a spotlight onto the Firestone Department of Homeland Security.
Let me quickly cover some of my credentials before I begin this forum. I was Governor of the State of Firestone for 8 months between January 2019 and September 2019. From there, I went on to serve on the Special Weapons & Tactics Team of the Stapleton County Sheriff’s Office for some time, and then I departed to serve in the Federal Protective Service and Secret Service within the Firestone Department of Homeland Security. I served in that department for a few months before departing.
I thoroughly enjoyed most of my time in the Firestone Department of Homeland Security, I worked with some great people, and even worked under some great leaders in the Secret Service. Recently, my attention was drawn to the department and mainly it’s command, and I’ve been waiting a year or so to release a forum of this nature, so lets jump into it. The Firestone Department of Homeland Security is probably my least favorite department in the State of Firestone. To start, the departments command holds extreme biases in favor of and against many of the departments employees. In terms of administering punishments, they pick and choose who and how harshly they penalize each person. Usually, the more likable people in the department’s inner circle are treated much better and people who aren’t necessarily friends with some of the top personnel. It’s unfortunate that not everyone is treated fairly there, but it is what it is. Moving deeper into the department, I’d really like to cover the Crisis Response Team. A majority of my experiences with some of the members, were mainly negative altercations that were usually followed by negative outcomes. Beyond that, the team itself is really a clique. Members of the team often overtly harass and attack people via Discord and in-game who disagree with them and those attempt to go after their own. Besides that, I’ve witnessed members of the team break department policies, break laws, even on a felonious scale, exploit to gain an unfair advantage above criminals, commit very unnecessary murders, and much worse. The team is often left unchecked, and given practical free reign in terms of what they do. There have been times where I’ve seen department command disagree with something they do, and they gang up on command members and essentially bully them into getting what they want. It’s to the point where I can’t even view the Crisis Response Team as a reliable source for providing safety and security to the state, I view them more as an organization who aggressively and unfairly aims to outplay and belittle criminals and other law enforcement officers within the state. Realistically speaking, I wouldn’t have an issue with them being a little egotistical, but it’s to the point where they openly harass and shit-on kids in this state, and make them feel like shit human beings just for existing and “not being as good” as the members of the team. To give you perspective on how bad this is, I’ve seen people leave Firestone as a whole as a direct result of the harassment they’ve received from some of these individuals. And anytime these incidents are reported or brought up to the departments command, it’s always “we’ll take care of it” or “we’ll review the incident” and then nothing actually happens, and members of the team are allowed to continue doing whatever they’re doing wrong. In my eight months as Governor, I witnessed this team do ungodly things and act in such a disgusting manner, and I just stood by and let it happen, which was wrong on my part. Honestly, I have quite a few friends on the Crisis Response Team and in the Firestone Department of Homeland Security, and I never actually wanted to release this forum, but I’m left with no choice anymore. I’m tired of the Crisis Response Team and other members of this “sUpERIoR LaW ENfOrCeMeNt DEpArTmEnT” to run around and do whatever they want to whoever they want. My intentions aren’t to demonize the team and department, rather to share my personal experiences with them and explain my quarrel with them. If you’ve been paying attention, you’d know I’ve been practically missing in action for the past month, so it’s not like I’m writing this article in spite of something that happened recently. This is a build up of negative incidents and altercations, finally being released to the public’s eye.
I could continue to go on, but I rather not stir the pot more than I have now. At the end of the day, these are personal experiences and I don’t wish to see any legal ramifications come from the allegations I’ve raised against the department so I won’t be releasing any potential “evidence” I have. I just want to see some reform and change brought to the department. I’m sure many community members and former department employees can attest to the claims I’ve stated. And like I said, I have quite a few friends in the department and I apologize if you interpret this forum as a direct assault against your character and our friendship. I’m tired of seeing them run unchecked and being allowed to do whatever they want. I should’ve taken action as Governor, I neglected to do so, so I now call upon the current Governor to step up and do what I failed to do.
(If I know some of these people as well as I think I do, I know they’re likely going to rebut and attack my character so I’m going to come out and say it: I have done just as bad shit as the people I’ve raised allegations against, I’m no saint myself. (Minus the corruption, bias, and exploiting, I’m too pure to commit those three.))
It’s sad that it’s gotten to this point.
