Official Statement on behalf of the Tribal Arms Corporation
As a proud member of the Republic we are posting this bounty on all Slavers operating across the New Eden cluster. In an effort to curb this detestable practice across all space. From today and for the following two weeks we will be offering a bounty of 500,000ISK on all Slavers delivered into the Custody of Tribal arms at the following locations.
Eystur VI Republic Justice Department Tribunal
Kronsur III Republic Justice Department Tribunal
Brundakur VI Republic Justice Department Tribunal
Maturat IX Republic Justice Department Tribunal
All slavers turned over will be treated with the highest dignity and handed over to Republic prosecutors for crimes committed against all free peoples of New Eden. No harm will come to them unless determined by the Justice Department.
To collect your bounty contract the Slavers to Tribal Arms at the prior listed locations. At this time we will also be accepting any freed Slaves at the same locations to act as potential witnesses before they are returned to their homelands.
If you wish to be credited for your work to liberate all of those enslaved across New-Eden leave the note ‘Credit’ in the contract description and you will be added to our list of credited individuals.
We would like to thank everyone who takes part in this endevour for making New-Eden a safer and Freer place for all.
And what evidence are you requiring be presented along with the slavers? I mean, if you just turn a whole bunch of people over to RSS and say ‘they’re slavers’… what Justice are you expecting from any prosecution? No evidence gathered, nothing but the word of someone who was paid to produce warm bodies… if there’s a prosecution under those conditions, how could it ever allow a defense? What, exactly, is the crime? When and where did it happen?
I mean, if it’s just ‘you have to prove you’re not a slaver’… can you prove you’re not a slaver? Can you account for every moment of your life, complete with corroboration?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not at all opposed to just rounding up slavers and running them down with a steamroller… but if you’re going to talk about ‘Justice’ and ‘prosecutions’… you kind of need more than just the guy you say committed a crime, don’t you? Like… evidence of the crime having ever happened, and maybe a little evidence that this was the guy?
I’m guessing the RSS would investigate each case themselves as that’s what they are paid to do.
CONCORD can, they track all capsuleer activity. If the RSS can get access to that info they can discover the exact circumstances in which the accused slaver came under the custody of the capsuleer who handed them over.
The SCC uses this sort of meta-data to classify human cargo. How else would federal navy, for example, know the people in your cargo hold are slaves and fine you for having them in your possession?
Yeah, it’s a common mistake. Think more… black bag spooks than law enforcement. There’s people who think I am willing to do anything and cross any line to achieve a goal. These guys make that impression of me look rather wimpy in that regard.
Firstly i never mentioned that RSS would be handling this but the Republic Justice Department, secondly i am not the one trying these individuals for any crimes, charges will be brought on the behalf of the Minmatar republic by prosecutors if there is any evidence of wrongdoing found.
Which doesn’t mean that’s when and where the ‘slaver’ committed the crime. Or that a crime was even committed. Exactly what would the RJD investigate when the TRLBA is just handing them ‘these are slavers’ and not ‘here, this is all of the information about this individual including flight logs from his wreck’ for each and every one of them?
Should they ask the slavers ‘ok, when and where were you slaving?’ Cuz that’ll get full disclosure, I’m sure.
considering that name calling them something will somewhat make the RJD work faster, this seems like a reasonable, swift approach on the topic of stopping slave raids. now where did i leave this ironybear marker makes the letter sparkling.
