    Cocochanel972's This is the Police (PC)

    [February 16, 2018 01:52:05 AM]
    My officers are dropping like flies. Some are quitting to "spend more time with family" (boooo) and so many want the day off because they drink too much. They fail academy training, get killed in petty theft crimes, and generally fail their assignments and it's barely been two weeks in game. I briefly abandoned my mission to remain moral to settle a personal vendetta I had as a player. Officer Burch was a sad, drunk failure on the force and I was tired of him. I did not have an immediate way to fire him, however, so I sent him on a mafia request where they asked no officers be sent. When he called for backup, I sent none and he was promptly killed. At this point I'm not sure if I want to continue my descent into darkness and go full Walter White but it seems like a fun way to experience the worst of the moral spectrum.

    Starting this game, I was attempting to take a Kantian approach to the decisions, choosing not to fire my black officers illegally and to avoid force at a feminist protest, but I soon succumbed to the pressure by the mafia. I saw the heads on the fan and I wasn't looking to join them.

    Slowly, my officers were being stretched thin and many were dying (RIP officers Purdy and Jay J Boogie) and the mayor was no longer happy with me and began taking away department funding, leading me to fall further into the monetary support of the mafia. As the plot thickens I decided to choose the Sand family over the Vargas family in a crime war and am currently in the thick of it. I am now finding myself dealing in very low-hanging utilitarianism where most choices seem to come down to "what is the lesser evil" while trying to maintain my personal safety and that of my officers.

    This is the Police is a gritty game about managing a precinct as a retiring police chief. In your last 180 days in the position, you must make decisions to appease the mayor, as well as manage mafia connections (that are not necessarily wanted) while maintaining the safety and success of your officers.

    Early on in the game I was confronted with a task from the mayor: fire all black police officers. Wow. The order was given out of concern for their safety due to the rising influence of a supremacist group in the city, but to accomplish the task you must either illegally fire some, or put them in positions to be killed. Immediately extremely complex moral decisions arise; for example, I was confronted by my former deputy who asked me to take over his mafia responsibilities. I decided to take the Kantian route and did not help him because that would be morally wrong and while I felt bad for his family being in danger, it really was his choice to put them in danger in the first place so to me he was garbage. Unfortunately, this resulted in a photo of his and his family's heads swinging from a ceiling fan being delivered to me. Oops.
