Hostage situations inside CD have happened for literally ever. After some serious thought, I’ve come to realize that they should very well be FRP.
The Car Dealership is the focal point for everything. Spawn points are even conveniently placed around CD on Redwood BLVD. Every civilian who’s ever existed knows that CD is the access to exploration and freedom in the state… your car. To do, really anything, you need a car unless you’re a civilian with jobs.
When a hostage situation is underway, cops must dodge civilians in the parking lot, scattered cars all over the place, and manage to keep civs behind the barriers. These situations can drag on for a long time, and when they’re underway, no one can enter to get a car, in fact it’s FRP to do so. It puts EVERYTHING on hold from the second the cones are placed to the second everyone is in custody.
Scenes like this are very common and well… don’t look great.
Support. Hostage situations are already difficult as is and having it at CD, one of the most populated areas on the map, it doesn’t help at all. It also is annoying when people have to wait so long to get a car.
100% support. We LEOs have had to deal with this forever now and it always ends the exact way. A crowd of people rushing in and interfering with the scene which is basically FRP. It would be so much better with hostage sits at CD being FRP. Not only LEOs but people can’t even spawn their cars which is just ridiculous.
