INAUGURATED AS GOVERNOR OF SAN ANDREAS

 

Dear citizens,

 

As of today I will serve as your governor. I have been inaugurated during the afternoon ceremony at the Conference Center, Los Santos. Despite the brutal attacks, I have managed to deliver my inaugural speech - and more importantly, I have managed to survive. I would like to thank all law enforcement personnell for securing the ceremony.

 

My first promise as a candidate is already being realised at this exact moment: a  Los Santos Police Department that should meet the requirements of a modern department. 

 

The next three months, I will use this platform to keep all citizens informed about my activities as a governor. I will try to be as much transparant as possible.

 

For those interested. My inaugural speech can be read below.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

Brendan Finney

Governor of San Andreas

 


 

"People of San Andreas! What a great feeling!

 

Thank you all for voting and a special thanks for the people whom entrusted me their vote. I would also like to thank the men who secured me during campaign events and the people who supported me through expensive advertisements!

 

What a blood curdling election race! All preliminary results went through the roof. I doubt anyone has ever won with 50 percent of the votes. The victory feels even greater after all negativity and rude accusations to our address. Certain groups of people - including candidates, have started these campaigns for self-glorification and to fight me based on personal hatred. Other than a personal agenda, they have no purpose as governor. But today gives us a chance to make this right and I am ready for this opportunity. Given by my voters.

 

There is a list of things to be done in the next three months. Let me highlight three!

 

As a result of the latest FBI report, we will start an investigation regarding the corruption within the police department and poor functioning of the Internal Affairs Division.

We will focus on a restructure of the Fire Department.

We will review the weapon license system and the execution of SA-PSC Vl.13.

We will review the vehicle taxation system.

 

And there is many more to accomplish!"

SHORT PRESS RELEASE

 

1. Funding cuts San Andreas Fire Department

 

Unfortunately, the intended restructure of the San Andreas Fire Department has taken a sad turn. The department is badly broken despite the eight-men Command, with generous salaries and the highest of the State. 

 

After various requests, the department has failed to disclose important information. The fundings of the department have been cut until the Governor's Office receives proper commitment and cooperation. 

 

2. Negotiations resumed

 

With the resignation of Mr Reznov, negotations for a peace treaty have resumed to finally end the bloodshed in Bone County. We hope that the new leader of Bone County is able to make concessions to the State of San Andreas. Mr Wilson seems to have potential and is prioritizing the biggest issues in Bone County.

 

A new meeting is to be scheduled.

AMENDMENT TO SA-PSC § V.1

 

1. Legalisation of stimulant and opioid drugs

 

A first attempt in the war on drugs and the regulation of the profitable drug market is legalisation of the possession of injectable heroin in the form of syringes and joints, both known to be stimulant and opioid drugs. In order to control possible illegal trade, as a result of this amendment, a person can possess a maximum of two prescribed drugs.

 

This amendment is not to encourage drugs use, it is facing reality of San Andreas inordinate drug market and the thousands of kilos being distributed on a monthly basis.1 Drugs is not going going to fade away, doing nothing is no option.

 

Current applicable article SA-PSC § V.1

SA-PSC § V.1. Possession of an illegal substance

It is strictly forbidden in the great state of San Andreas, the acts of introducing, manufacturing, holding or distributing by any means any type of mind-altering substances not necessarily limited to weed, heroin and meth, that might impair others. If ingredients are find alongside with the illegal substance, and they are used to produce these substances, they are to be seized with the drugs.

 

Amended article SA-PSC § V.1

SA-PSC § V.1. Possession of an illegal substance

It is strictly forbidden in the great state of San Andreas, the acts of introducing, manufacturing, possessing or distributing by any means weed, heroin or meth. If ingredients are found alongside with the illegal substance, and they are used to produce these substances, they are to be seized with the drugs. The exception to prohibited possession is sole possession of two or less drugs in the form of joints or syringes.

 

The Governor's Office requests Chief Justice Lockeheed to implement the amendment. @Weston @US Congress

 

This amendment was passed by the San Andreas Government on January 8, 2020.

SHORT PRESS RELEASE

 

1. Bone County

 

As a result of Bone County losing its independent, Governor B. Finney has aborted the negotiations for a peace treaty. Bone County is now under authority of the San Andreas Government and is expected to uphold and respect the Federal and State Law. The Governor's Office had hoped that Mr Wilson would have been able to serve the public's interest of Bone County and end the violence and bloodshed. A peace treaty would have prevented Bone County losing its independence. 

 

The Governor's Office is still open to negotiate with Bone County Resistance.

2. San Andreas Fire Department

 

A constructive meeting with Fire Commissioner Amarante led to an increase of the department's fundings. The Governor's Office expects results in the short term. Due to the confidential nature of the meeting, the Governor's Office is unable to disclose the specifics.

Metropolitan and South-Central Precinct under review

 

1. Station inspection

 

Governor Finney visited the newly introduced South-Central Precinct in East Los Santos. Quite supringly and remarkable Chief Lockeheed refused to answer questions and work along with the Governor. Chief Lockeheed confirmed he was too occupied guiding a Volunteer Trooper and left immediately after arriving with the sightseeing SAPD Command Rancher. A special thanks to Lt. Santos for taking the time and answering most of the questions. 

 

The San Andreas Police Department introduced two new districts, the Metropolitan Precinct and South-Central Precinct, while essential divisions such as Internal Affairs and Special Weapons and Tactics remain broken and absent. As well as the seperation and restructure of San Andreas Impound and a new system encouraging patrol activity seem to remain big obstacles. The new districts, including two new Commanders, and a memberlists of both districts, have officially been published by the San Andreas Police Department. Commanders are yet to be appointed, according to Lt. Santos. According to the San Andreas Police Department, the purpose of implementing districts is "holding competitions..- catching the most suspects, seizing the most narcotics, writing the most traffic citations." This is the sort of policy that breeds polarization rather than a united and equal department.

 

With the introduction of two precincts - for official Troopers only - Volunteer Troopers get left out at Pershing Square. San Andreas is supposed to be a state for all Troopers, including dependant and new Volunteer Troopers. The Command Staff of San Andreas Police Department considers it more important to form two teams and turn Troopers against each other, rather than involve, guide and instruct new Recruits and Volunteers.

 

The Office of the Governor is reviewing this inequal and inefficient system.

Congressional hearing

 

1. Congressional hearing

 

The Office of the Governor could not be present at a Congressional hearing of which the Governor was notified several hours prior to it. The latest statement H. RES 015 of the Congress, claiming that the Governor had agreed to the scheduled hearing, is false - please see the transcript. 

 

Spoiler

ŁocMax Last Friday at 8:17 PM

@Brendan / @Octavius

either of you free tomorrow and if so at which CET time for a hearing?

Brendan Last Friday at 8:18 PM

What hearing?

I'm free after 17:00

ŁocMax Last Friday at 8:23 PM

sent the details on main forum PM

Brendan Last Friday at 9:06 PM

Not sure for how long I'll stay, but I'll give it a try

 

The Office of the Governor has not been given access to the complaint of the San Andreas Police Department nor information or evidence regarding the alleged abuse of power. The Congress has failed to disclose the required documents in preparation to the hearing and has failed to respect the right to a due process. The Office of the Governor executed its rights given by the Congress and has never abused its power. While breaching Article II of the Constitution, Congressman and Chief Lockeheed of the San Andreas Police Department is misusing his rights and abusing this supreme body to serve personal interests. A Congressional hearing is not the constitutional method to address concerns regarding salaries.

 

Neither one of the Chiefs was present at the Congressional hearing and security personnel, Mr D. Shelby, was randomly summoned to testify during the hearing. Mr Shelby is a freelance employee and is in no way employed by the Office of the Governor. 

 

Due to this outrageous process, the executive privilege of the Governor is breached by the Congress. The Office of the Governor will soon disclose multiple documents proving that the salaries were not reduced to obtain access to certain unknown confidential documents. In fact, the salaries were never reduced during the recent station inspection.

 

This process is once again a dark page in the history of San Andreas.

United States Congress

 

1. In addition to PUB 001.

 

In addition to the latest publication of the Congress, the Office of the Governor would like to clarify that Mr Shelby did not voluntarily testify during the hearing nor was told or informed that he had the right to decline testifying. Senator and Congressmen Carter misused their influential positions as Congress to force Mr Shelby to the stand by publicly announcing and directing him to the chair.

 

Mr Shelby was not informed about the subject of the matter or the reason of why he was forcefully requested to testify.

 

Spoiler

[23:31:06] [PSA] GOV Senator Matthew Carter: The Congress is calling for Derek Shelby to attend as a witness in a hearing for the State Government.

[23:32:08] ** Matthew Carter o<: Mr. Shelby have a seat on the desk to your left **
[23:32:18] ** Derek Carter o<: Left. **
[23:32:19] ** Matthew Carter o<: On the left sir **

 

The complaint is just as vague and subjective as this process and is full of untrue facts. The Lieutenant and Chief of the police department chose this far reaching method and accused our Office of abuse of power and attempting to gain access to confidential information. The allegations are not substantiated with evidence. It is uncertain which internal information the Governor has supposed to get access to. The Lieutenant voluntarily approached us during the station inspection. The police department again shows a hostile and uncooperative attitude towards the Office of the Governor. One reason of why the salaries were reduced by the Office of the Governor.

 

Troopers do not earn $4,000. Troopers earn $3,000.

 

One cannot be accused of blackmailing when he is not after or aware of any specified internal or confidential information.

San Andreas Police Department

 

The Governor's Office wants to ensure equality to all government employees employed at the San Andreas Police Department and its divisions. Employees of the San Andreas Police Department should receive equal pay for equal work. The salaries of SWAT personnel have been set to $1,000.

 

All employees shall be paid equally, as the Bible tells us: "And when those hired about the eleventh hour came, each of them received a denarius. Now when those hired first came, they thought they would receive more, but each of them also received a denarius."  - Matthew 20:9-10.

1. San Andreas News

 

The Government of San Andreas is currently attracting investments to boost San Andreas News in an effort to establish proper news gathering in the state of San Andreas. An investment is essential to restart the activities of the company.

 

The company is in the early stages of engaging with a potential investor. 

 

More info to come.

 

2.  Protest Pershing Square, Los Santos

 

9uSzg8x.png

 

 

On the 2nd of March a significant group of men gathered in Idlewood to organise an unannounced march to Pershing Square, for a protest in front of the Los Santos Police Department. The protestors gathered together to show a strong disapproval about corruption and police brutality. The Command of the police department seemed present but unavailable to enter into dialogue with the protestors. 

 

Dispite a few men repeatedly chanting "Allahu akbar", the crowd seemed peaceful and addressing a serious concern. The protest was ended with police force.

 

The Office of the Governor is open for criticism regarding government corruption and/or police brutality by the San Andreas Police Department.

The Office of the Governor has ceased all operations in response to an unlawful detainment of the Governor of San Andreas by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

 

Governor B. Finney was brutally detained with the use of flash bangs and dragged along. The excessive use of force is inappropriate as the Governor is a known public figure whom has no reason to flee. The Governor is currently being held captive by federal agents for unknown charges and without a reasonable suspicion. Reason this unlawful detainment is kept silence is because of questionable and corrupt offers to participate in shady deals.

To all citizens and business owners in Bone County in response to Bone County Resistance' latest announcement,

 

We urge all law abiding citizens of San Andreas travelling to and residing in Bone County to ensure not to interact with men representing the Bony County Resistance organisation. As of January the 8th, 2020, Bone County Resistance is subjected to the authority of the State of San Andreas. Bone County Resistance has no legal standing to enforce a permit system from business owners operating in Bone County.

 

The latest official announcement published by the said organisation is a threat to San Andreas and the fundamental rights of its citizens. Bone County Resistance appears to be breaching Article II, III and IV of the Federal and State Laws, as well as the Bone County Safety Act 2020 again. Rather than investigating local drug dealers and abusively profiling its suspects, the Government of San Andreas hopes to see a prompt and torough investigation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the wrongdoings of this terrorist organisation.     

 

The Government of San Andreas promises to extend the Bone County Safety Act 2020 with additional self defensive rights if law enforcement agencies fail to guarantee safety to law abiding citizens in Bone County and enforce the San Andreas Federal and State laws. 

 

Your Vice-Governor,

Octavius Finney

INAUGURATION OF NEW GOVERNOR

 

Dear Citizens,

 

I, Ace Westbrooks, was elected as the new Governor of San Andreas on May 9th and will serve this position for the next three months. None of these would have been possible without the selfless efforts of the best libertarian campaign team ever assembled in the state. From the Vice Governor, to every party supporter who stood with us during our campaigns, conferences and rallies. Thank you for having faith in us to move this state in the right direction. We will make life more affordable. We will strengthen the Police Department. We will take guns off our streets. We will lower the taxes and we will keep investing in the people! We have hired secretaries for Law Enforcement and Emergency services and in the coming days we plan to meet the heads of Police and Fire departments and review the departmental issues.

This election is not the ultimate win for the Libertarians, but is a chance for us to change the state and make it a peaceful place for our future generations. Let us all work hard to restore the prosperity of our land and make it a better place. We won because we listened to you, and what you have been going through. Know that we will always put this state and its people first. And we will Ace the state of San Andreas. Thank you.

 

Ace Westbrooks,

State's Governor.

AMENDMENT TO SA-PSC § V.1.

 

Legalization of weed smoking:

 

The possession of weed has imprisoned millions of non-violent people which is not only unfair to these people but also uses up resources that would be better spent prosecuting and imprisoning real criminals and violent law offenders, since smoking weed is less harmful than any other drug with no side affects and also plays its role in relieving stress and anxiety. The War on Drugs has always been ineffective at limiting access to dangerous drugs and, instead, empowers dangerous gangs that make incredible fortunes on the black market for these illegal drugs. 

 

In view of the recent elevation in the crime activities in the city, the government of San Andreas solely focuses on targeting crimes which are actually "crimes". We therefore decriminalize the smoking of Weed and hence a small possession of this drug, which will help the law enforcement to protect the people from other harmful drugs. I, therefore, legalize the possession of less than or equal to 500 grams of weed. The smuggling and manufacturing of the drug is to remain illegal, however.

 

The article SA-PSC § V.1 has been amended as follows:

 

Spoiler

SA-PSC § V.1. Possession of an illegal substance [M]

 

It is strictly forbidden in the great state of San Andreas, the acts of introducing, manufacturing, possessing or distributing harmful drugs like heroin or meth, with the exception of weed which may be legally possessed by an individual up to a limit of 500 grams. If ingredients are found alongside with the illegal substance, and they are used to produce these substances, they are to be seized with the drugs. The exception to prohibited possessions also include the sole possession of two or less drugs in the form of joints or syringes.

 

  • SA-PSC § V.1.1. Property Search
    If the subject of a search is found to be in possession of more than 500 grams of weed, a warrant request may be sent to the persons of authority to approve warrants, against the subject's properties, which are then to be searched and seized of eventual illegal items that are found. 

 

Signed,

Ace Westbrooks,

State's Governor.

AMENDMENT TO SA-PSC V.2 

Ban on Military Grade Weapons:

 

The easy access to illegal military grade weapons and the spate of gun violence in the recent years strongly suggests that the government should strengthen the gun storage laws, to prevent weapon trafficking and allow law enforcement to remove firearms from dangerous situations and places since an assailant with an assault rifle is able to hurt and kill twice the number of people compared to an assailant with a handgun

 

In order to prevent further mass shooting deaths, the government of San Andreas bans the purchase, sale, transport and use of military grade assault weapons and rifles with high capacity magazines, since these lethal firearms, designed to kill humans quickly more efficiently, are used for no other purpose than mass killing of innocent people in the shortest time, should be kept away from civilians. Hence, any property found containing illegal military grade weaponry, may be seized by law enforcement agencies for a period of 14 days for further investigation along with the illegal weapons.

 

Amendment to the article SA-PSC § V.2:

 

Spoiler

 

 SA-PSC § V.2. Possession of an assault weapon or a sniper rifle [F]

The possession of military grade weapons is strictly prohibited in the state of San Andreas. If a person is found possessing any of the following firearms, they will be immediately seized along with person's weapon license:

  1. Assault Rifles (M4 Carbine and AK-47)
  2. Sniper Rifles
  • SA-PSC § V.2.1. Property Seize  

Any property in the state if found containing illegal military grade weaponry may be seized by law enforcement agencies for a period of 14 days for further investigation along with the illegal weapons.

 

 

 

This amendment was passed by the office of governor on 1st June 2020.

@US Congress

 

Signed,

Ace Westbrooks,

State's Governor.
