The South: "Good Morning Mr. Cody, it is good to see you today."
Me: "But that isn't my last name."
Literally everyone: "Anyway Corey this is what we have for today."
Me to myself: "Who even am I; what is me?"
My crisis of identity is becoming very real.
Returning to my normal posting schedule tomorrow.
Atm I owe posts to:
Scrolling Parchment Library
Additionally, I'll probably be looking to pick up one new thread. This is pending what happens with Ultraviolence.
I probably won't be making any posts today.
However, I intend to post to all threads I am in tomorrow.
Current count is 4.
Stupid tropical storm will probably knockout my power. There may be substantial delays in posts and responses.
"Addicted to the knife.

She needs a little help with the agony.
And a little help comes in a little glass vial
In a gun pressed against her anatomy.
And when the gun goes off,
Ms. sweet is ready for surgery."
It's been stuck in my head for like two days straight now. I wake up and I hear it, I eat and I hear it, I sleep and I dream it. What curse has been placed upon me?
So I've cleaned up about 90% of my house and then found another massive dead mound of termites. Finally called property management because at this point it's been more than a few hundred.
Their response was, "All of our property is termite protected. It is currently swarming season. They will come in and eventually die."
And I responded with, "Yes, and beyond the fact I have been cleaning up their corpses from everywhere on everything, including my bed, and I found them tangled up in my leg hairs, I have been cleaning for over four hours now."
Their response, "we will talk to our pest control people, but everyone is having this problem."
Fuck this state.

I basically just lived through the plot of starship troopers.

I won't be posting until I've finished cleaning up the mess caused by my overzealous use of insecticides.

There are dead bodies everywhere, on everything, this might take awhile.

It's 3 am, my power has been out since 7:30 pm, and I have about $200 worth of perishables with no way to cook them.
However, the thing that is keeping me awake at the moment is that in 3 hours I should be waking up and having a cup of coffee.
Did you know that pressing x and y at the same time will short hop? I didn't learn that until today. I spent the last 3 days trying to do 100 short hops in a row by releasing the button fast enough. All it takes is hitting both jump buttons at the same time..... so many hours wasted. I'm going to go throw my game away now.
Just remember that a vote for OBELUS is:
a vote for freedom
a vote for equality
a vote for unity
a vote for the future.

Anyway, the reason that FBI and local got brought up is because it is the closest approximation we have to IPP.
States have their own sovereignty and in many ways originally functioned as their own countries.
Obviously federal powers have increased in recent years but it is still the best and most appropriate approximation.
I think your understanding of jurisdiction is a little off though.
A state doesn't lose jurisdiction just because the fed gets involved. Their jurisdiction is within their state.
Additionally, if an intrastate crime occurs each state can investigate the crime within the confines of their state, or create an intrastate agency to oversee it (reference Port Authority of NY/NJ) which would not be federal but still be able to investigate in both states.

Well, if you keep in mind how the initial discussion started, it was about how the IPP and local entities would handle the investigations.
There isn't a jurisdictional issue because they both have jurisdiction and authority to execute, and one would not be subservient to the other.
Comparison between state and fed agencies were used to explain this because it is the closest real life approximation we have.
Assuming that there isn't an international court system, it would be up to local authorities to arrest and prosecute (see my Coast Guard reference in initial posting).
Well, the initial question mainly arose because I had a misunderstanding of what Carlos intended the IPP to be. I was comparing it more to Interpol which is also international so I thought that would be the best comparison but, again, I apparently misunderstood the way Interpol operated. I blame that on Leverage lol
I think that the relation between FIST and local police is more on par with the Fed v. State, but I digress.
Still, since IPP is a fictional organization I simply wanted to know how Carlos envisioned it operating lol If he's basing it on an understanding of RL paradigms, then cool. If not, I wanted to be sure.
Additionally, parallel investigations happen all the time. The ATF and FBI might be investigating an intrastate arms trade, while locals may be investigating the same person independently for a similar reason (based on state laws).
ATF and FBI might have an agreement that one of then will act as lead, and the locals may or may not get brought into the fold.
Lead agency is usually provided to who whoever has the largest jurisdiction, because that jurisdiction can then be extended to partner agencies, when those agencies are working under the lead agency.
But this is purely for a practical reason, and isn't a requirement.
The Coast Guard will do something called a Multi-agency strike force operation and use this to conduct shoreside operations where we normally wouldn't have jurisdiction.
Regular posting will resume Monday.
Just as a heads up, I most likely won't be posting until this weekend. Additionally, my posting will probably be limited to just weekends for the next few weeks. I appreciate everyone's patience.
Posting will be reduced, until my fingers no longer feel death.
Hi friend, I just wanted to take a moment and let you know that I have not forgotten about our thread. I also wanted to take a moment to apologize for how long it has taken me to post. I will have a post up within the next few days. But super saiyajin super seriously, I'm super sorry.
For 10,000 years I have slumbered!
I'll be driving to Yorktown Virginia (17 hour drive) later today (I'll be there for 5 weeks) expect few to not posts over the next two to three days.
