WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU ARE EXPECTING ARRESTED


So you've been arrested. Now what?

First let's take a look at how you got arrested in the first place. When a crime is committed, or there is sufficient evidence that a crime is going to be committed, law enforcement officers are required to make an arrest. It is not up to them to make judgments on the situation, and once someone has been identified as having broken a law, the police cannot just let them go, even if they have a really great excuse, like mind control, or blackmail committed by evil robots.

So you go directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200, right? Nope! Lucky you, being arrested is just the beginning of the long, boring, and extremely expensive journey to JUSTICE.

When a serious enough crime is committed (like, say, muuuuuuuurther), the suspect is incarcerated at a police station or jail until bail is set and paid, or until the suspect is arraigned. (For less srs bznz, suspects can be issued a notice to appear.)

You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you. Isn't that nice of America? Unfortunately, we don't actually have enough attorneys in game, but that just means you get to make one up.

Where are we so far? You get arrested by another player's character. And then the rest is more or less up to you. You get to decide what plea your character's NPC lawyer entered, and if your character was released on a bail they could afford, and when the date of your trial will be.

That's right: you haven't even gone to trial yet! What the hell is taking so long? I hope you brought snacks. Where's your arresting officer? Who knows. Unless they are called as a witness at your trial, their job here is done. Unless you're a complete psycho, you can probably go home now.

Until your court date. And I'm not even touching that.

C&C 2020

Sleeping Beauty runs like a dream. Even in the height of summer, with every air conditioner in the city running full blast, it never goes out. Rolling brown and black-outs are a thing of the past. The mayor receives praise for solving the city's energy crisis. In tumultuous times such as these, it's the little things the public really appreciates. Like being able to blow dry your hair with the lights on.

Other cities have taken notice. Other countries are showing interest.

Sleeping Beauty is experimental, everyone understands. Not patented, "but we're working on it".

These things take time. Something like this doesn't just fall into your lap twice.

And even the system itself is...imperfect. There are definitely unnecessary parts that should be eliminated in the future. The casing, for example: highly superfluous. Unattractive. There may, some day, be a way to remove it without jeopardizing the system's integrity, but at the moment they are still working on that as well.

So far, attempts to replicate Sleeping Beauty have been failures. The consciousness seems to matter. The emotions. Matter in a glass jar cannot be said to be 'happy'. These systems sputter and short out. They're much too unreliable.

Sleeping Beauty has no back-up.

What happens someone asks, when he wakes up?

Someone else laughs.

He doesn't wake up.
