Allright, as a EX Crim, I would say stuff wasent hard for me, i got away whit most of the stuff, just by talking. talking gets you way further away than guns. and that leads to more problems, criminals have fast af cars, most of em are like tanks, they got the bois, and if something happens some random might join the criminals team too, as of from cops point of view its scary, and to be honest criminals have it more easier, especially the ones that dont care that much. i agree whit crunches "unless your pablo escabar you will always be at somewhat of a disadvantage to police." But to be honest, i think the cops are in a disadvantage most of the time, especially when they pulling up to something and they got no idea what is gonna happen and when it comes to worst cases, people start shooting cops. cops get ready for this, and this gets criminals angry for it. But if the criminals now what they doing, most criminals forget that they are innocent until proven guilty.
When i used to be a crim, i was basically riding a bmx, no gun. and robbed stores. 3/5 stores i wasent guilty for it. just by talking, thinking of excuses or just planning in advanse.
If you got your back up story ready. you can get away whit almost everything, if you gotta kill a guy, and cops come. dont be like that Bitch ass started shooting at me and i defended my self. especially if you had a illegal gun, if you have a better story to talk about. they might not even realise you had a illegal gun, and you got multiple ways to distract or move cops going to that direction, all im saying if your prepared, in any other way than leading to a gun. your set. most of the time
Cops got it really hard, let say you do something for the first time, and talk shit to a cop. and you defend yourself whit i never done it before, let say you got 50 crims in the city,
It might be the first for you in a long time, but trust me not the first for the cop. they see the same thing happening everyday. might be special for you.
So atleast try to make it special for the cop too. if your too scared to get in to prison. then dont do the crime, allways think that youll end up in prison for it. and then you realise you got more ways to get out of it. dont meant that throw your keys out of the windows and put your hands up. if its a stolen car you can talk your way out of it, just dont say i borrowed it etc.
Crims got a big advantage. and some crims are ruining it for others, whit shooting for no reason, code 0ing that makes cops think that oh another stop. he gonna pull out and shoot.
Lemme take my gun out. not every criminal is a dickhead. but most of em are. and for that reason, most of the cops are ready for it.
Information on criminal side is being ruined everytime, just because most of crims cant think before saying or getting money for something. this is a pretty one sided text, just because i didnt see any criminal talk in here.
But cops have it hard, criminals have it easy.
Most of the stuff from OP was nerfing cop stuff, but no one has talked about nerfing crims.
