"cherry picked" lolk
You couldn't even cherry pick one that disagreed, it's a very well known fact that our memories are not very reliable sources for the truth. You have tons of things you remember that didn't happen the way you think they did, or details that have changed.
Seriously, find one study that disagrees. I guarantee there's not a single one from any halfway decent source.

That's nice, but even if that were true, you are not representative of all people, and people can be very susceptible to falsely remembering events.

The quote was from the first guy's post. And it makes perfect sense. People who viewed the crime probably don't know that person, they just got a glimpse at him. If the suspect that gets posted everywhere winds up not being the same person, the witnesses might still identify him after seeing the image plastered everywhere and associating the two.

Sorry I just can't get behind that logic. If I see somebody stabbing another person in an alley, I'm going to remember their face and no amount of "likely suspects" in the paper are going to change what I remember.

"as pictures of the main suspects reached Swedish media, and it became impossible to guarantee that the witnesses hadn't been influenced by seeing the main suspects face on the cover of every newspaper, rendering the eyewitness accounts unreliable in a court of law. "
I'm guessing they don't rely on that to find people. I'm sure that's one of the downsides, but there's no magic solution.
#43 - randomzdude (11/30/2016) [-]
I'm not sure where that quote came from, but unless I'm missing something that is simply incomprehensible. "The people who witnessed the suspects doing the crime, saw the suspects again in the media. Because they saw the suspects multiple times their eye witness accounts are now null and void." ...huh?

But how is making the boats invulnerable a bad thing? the boats have a respawn time around 10 seconds. spending any amount of your own time to drive over there and blow them up is wasting more time of your own than the enemy teams.

Yes. Blowing up enemy vehicles IS a viable strategy in war.
but if that vehicle can be replaced for free in ten seconds, then you are wasting time, because the time it took for you to drive over to the boat spawn and destroy a single boat, you could spawn as an assault class and help your team take down a heavy tank. you know, the enemy asset thats an actual threat.

word things however you like, but the thing here is that the boats are not a threat. the boats respawn extremely quickly. the boats are only ever used for transport and to take down the behemoth(which, if youre winning, you shouldnt even have. you should be using your time to destroy the behemoth instead of the enemy boats)

the problem being faced was that people were spawncamping boats for infinite points. the only way to remove this problem is to stop them getting points. but if they stopped people getting points for destroying unmanned vehicles, people would be getting shafted if the enemy driver bailed before the vehicle blew.

the only real argument against making the boats invulnerable is "muh immersion". but lets face it, if you were spawncamping the boats, you werent really interested in immersion in the first place.

Because the boats are a miniscule asset and spending any time destroying the boats is spending less time doing literally anything else.

Then give a minuscule bonus for destroying a minuscule asset, not make the asset invulnerable until somebody decides they want to use it.
