Would Repatriate have been a good cop?

Postby Winston » Thu Jul 12, 2012 3:21 pm

From a PM:

"I do agree that Repatriate has been making too much fun of you. It's just like middle and high school bullying (That's not surprising - he almost became a cop)."

Yeah I think I got a letter from Repatriate once long ago where he said that he quit the police academy to go overseas. Here it is:

You probably don't remember me at all but I had a really long series of e-mail conversations with you a few years back. I don't think I used the same e-mail address though or I used an anonymous nickname at the time. I don't remember the exact year but it was probably around 2002 or 2003 when your website was a chronicle about all the problems you were encountering in Russia . I believe my initial responses to you were kind of critical in regards to your adventures in Russia and your motivations. Well, like you I am an Asian-American and I made the decision to live abroad in 2005. I haven't regretted it one bit and it has been a life changing (and saving) experience. It’s interesting and sort of funny to me that it seems you decided to live abroad roughly around the same time as I did. I always considered this option and deep down inside it’s what I was planning for in my life. I was far from being a “loser� in the U.S. , I was hired by a police dept and was going to work in law enforcement as a career. I fit the “type A� personality attributes pretty well because I’m fit, decent looking if not handsome, confident, outspoken, and I have managed my personal life well. However, I spent a couple weeks in the academy and realized that I could never become a cop. It wasn’t because I lacked the ability or the interest in police work it’s just that the motivation wasn’t there to “protect and serve� communities in the U.S. I had absolutely no interest in building a life in America and the people I was surrounded with just put all that into perspective.

After I quit the academy I felt fairly depressed because it was the first time I quit something major in my life. I felt like a failure for a couple years because I didn’t buckle down and go through with it despite my reservations. I even tried a couple more times to enter into law enforcement. This was done more to convince myself to fit into American society professionally rather than doing what I really wanted to do in my heart. It was only after I decided to put everything on hold for awhile and do some soul searching that I figured out what was really bothering me. It wasn’t me at all it WAS the society I was living in. I am just not materialistic or infatuated with conforming to the American ideal of what an American male should be or what constitutes the fabled “American ethic.� The whole idea repulses me and I feel a deep seeded disgust and aversion towards what many Americans stand for. It’s too bad I didn’t figure this out for myself until much later.. all told I wasted a good 4-5 years from 2001 until 2005 with indecisions about my life. Those should have been the prime years of my life spent partying, socializing, laying down a career path, and just enjoying my youth but I am still young (29) and have been happily living abroad the past couple years.

Let's face it America is good for some things like making money, developing stable businesses, and enjoying the natural landscape however the standard of living is highly overrated and downright poor in many respects. People in America are stressed, sexless, annoyed, and angry most of the time. You can see it in mainstream American culture, the macho bullshit posturing, the elitism, and the feminist nonsense. I know some people will deny this and call us "pathetic" for our choices but I know too many American expats from all walks of life who are happily living abroad to discount this as mere coincidence. The english speaking western world has really pigeonholed itself as a moralistic, productive, and order based society but I feel the more you order and categorize people's lives the less happy they are. I’m not even going to get into all the racial discrimination, social politics, and other nonsense that pervades every aspect of American life either. Let’s just say that I’m sure you know about as much as I do how bad it can be as an asian minority in the U.S. Actually, it’s not even a race thing these days. I find a lot of my friends from ALL racial backgrounds to express how sick and tired they are of the bullshit they face in daily American life. However, the vast majority of these guys will never leave. They just don’t have the options on the table because they set down responsibilities and roots that will not allow them that mobility. I feel for them, if only they knew..

Once you go abroad it’s difficult to go back. My first extended experience living overseas opened my eyes in a variety of ways. People will always be people but I believe that culture is the single biggest influence on people. There is definitely something wrong with America in this respect. America may be a lot of good things..productive, prosperous, and relatively free but the socialization of its citizens is much less advanced than other (much more economically poorer) countries I’ve been in. The way I look at it quality of life isn’t just all about money. It’s about what you can do with yourself in that society and how comfortable you feel around others. In America I was never truly “comfortable� but always felt tense or slightly agitated at the people around me. There’s definitely a hostility and tenseness to social interaction there that I don’t feel anywhere else. That’s a lot of negativity to deal with daily so it’s not surprising that out of all industrialized first world countries Americans generally have the least healthy lifestyles and shortest overall life spans.

Anyways, this e-mail ended up being a lot longer and more personal than I anticipated. Feel free to quote from this if you would like to. There are a lot of other observations I’d like to make including various countries I’ve traveled to in the past couple years but I’ll save that for another e-mail.

Also, Winston keep up the good work. I really feel you are one of the more intelligent and insightful individuals out there on the internet. I’m sure there are lots of American men of all backgrounds who agree with your articles. Ignore the naysayers and bitter Americans out there who want to bring you down to their level. Be yourself and be happy with life. Life is short and sometimes that’s all we can do is just be.

Not anonymous this time ;),
David


I think the name in his email header was "David Liu" but that's a common Asian American name, so I'm sure he won't mind if I post it. lol

So knowing what you guys know now about Repatriate and his negative, overly judgmental, bullying character, do you think he would have made a good cop? Would he have been just, fair, objective, and a protector of the innocent? Or would he have been an asshole and bully cop who would have harassed innocent people?

I don't know about him being a cop but he was a hell of a mod here till someone broke weak... ;) I feel Repatriate was a great mod and a insightful poster here. I'm amazed he stays around with the treatment he has received. I have a feeling many of the best posters here on this forum are drifting away.

By the way Winston, how long did Konrad beg and kiss your ass this time before you let him back here?

Stop lying dogboy. You are acting like a dog. Repatriate banned innocent people when he was a mod. He even admitted it later. Why do you forget that?

So you condone all his bullying? What is wrong with you?

Konrad didn't beg me anything.

So your saying you let Konrad back knowingly...

Ill act as I see fit Winston, dog or not. I think Repatriate was doing a great job as a mod and keeping things under control. He is common sence and isn't worried about feelings, just results. He isn't a bully in the least bit and if you heeded his advice you would be better for it. Not everyone that tickles your ears is your friend, not everyone that hurts your feelings is your enemy. I'm not "lying"it is my true and honest opinion of the matter.

You have not much tolerance for any form of pain Winston. Growth as an individual is painful, criticism is painful, exercise is painful but all of these things lead to a better you. If you can not see past your ego to realize these things you are truely blind...

No I did not let Konrad back knowingly. He never contacted me or revealed himself to me. So I don't even really know if he is back or not.

I give every new member the benefit of the doubt until he proves otherwise.

Repatriate did get rid of a lot of spammers, but he got rid of innocent people too, like GuitarGuy, remember? He has even confessed to that now.

Maybe that letter above isn't Repatriate. It doesn't seem like his writing style. But that letter about Russian morality that I posted in another thread is definitely his writing style.

Repatriate, are you saying you never joined the Police Academy?

But since we're dealing in hypotheticals here hell yes I would make a damn fine cop and Winston would make a damn fine taxi driver as well!

What article on Russian morality? I have made some comments on here before about what I think about eastern europeans in very vague terms but I haven't spent any amount of time in Russia.

You're totally losing the plot, man.

How do? You are too quick to judge, and you often judge falsely and are overly harsh. You also like to bully people. You wouldn't even make a good forum moderator, so how could you make a good cop?

If this were your forum, tons of innocent people would be banned and judged falsely and unfairly.

Anyone knows that compared to you, I'm far more fair, tolerant and objective.

Winston how the hell am I or anyone else "bullying" you when you start calling people fucktard, shithead, asshole, etc.. over a disagreement over a trivial argument? You obviously have a serious mental disorder of some kind where any vague criticism ends up in disproportionate rage.

Dogboy is right. Zboy is right. Chanta76 is right. A lot of people have observed this strange behavior from you. You're totally off-kilter reality wise.

Hahaha! Winston, every now and again a little wheat is lost with the chaff... There were no tears from me with anyone he banned. Your forum would be a much better place if he was still a mod here and you let him do what needed to be done. Playing mother hen to troll posters only prolongs the problem.

You slam me with lies and exaggerations. That constitutes bullying. Someone even told me:

"I do agree that Repatriate has been making too much fun of you. It's just like middle and high school bullying (That's not surprising - he almost became a cop)."

Dogboy, more than one innocent person was banned during the Repatriate inquisition. You call that justice? lol

He is too quick to judge. You call that fair and objective? lol. You are deluded and inaccurate.

Winston do you know how preposterous and out of touch with reality you sound right now? You just created a fictitious biography about me to try and attack me over a joke thread.

Also, most people DO think you look like a taxi driver. The results of the poll don't lie. The people have spoken. So I don't think i'm exaggerating there.

How can anyone even remotely come close to bullying the admin and owner of a site? If you don't like it just ban everyone who is critical of you.

I have also noticed you have this really bad habit of attacking people who have helped you out before. That's why I stopped taking this board seriously right around the time I saw how useless it was trying to mod it with your pussyfooting going on. You already chased Rock away with your badgering him because you were jealous of his accounts of success in Taiwan.

You are really a headcase.

You know what..looking back at your past Winston I notice you seem to get involved in a lot of long standing pissing matches with people who you've interacted with in person.

Perhaps there's something about YOUR personality there that causes this?

I can't and won't get into the back and forth who's worse Repatriate or Winston debate. It's moronic.

What I will say is this: I know of no other forum anywhere where the forum owner starts a poll to attack or discredit a member of that forum.

By definition, a person who owns a forum has far more power than a person who is a member of the forum. After all the forum owner has the ability to suspend or ban members, remove posts, set or change forum rules, etc.

The only power that a member has is to state his opinion (presumably within the rules of the forum).

Winston - you may not like Repatriate or appreciate his comments about you but by definition he can't bully you anymore than an employee of Microsoft can bully Bill Gates. Gates has all the power at Microsoft and you have all the power here.
