@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

some traditional cel painted backgrounds would be lovely.

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

Is their any plans on what might be added if the budget reaches a certain quota?

Just saw the preview for Sea3son animated. It looks awesome! Voices are great. I only wish I had money to support.

Glad to see this place is still bustling. I went through my old comics last night, made me think of you all. I miss this place sometimes.

I've been busy with work. A lot of OT recently

@  Shadow : (09 August 2019 - 01:06 AM)

I just don't have much to say.

@  RedAuthar : (07 August 2019 - 11:12 AM)

I must be a very loud person.

@  RedAuthar : (07 August 2019 - 11:12 AM)

On a different note. I've been using my phone to visit FUS for so long that I haven't used the Shoutbox in about a year. Still top Shouter somehow.

@  RedAuthar : (07 August 2019 - 11:11 AM)

Fixed it. If you use the full editor on a shout you can link the Video using text.

It's me again with another hot-button topic: your local law enforcement (sometimes called "peace officers"). My question: do you feel they are out of control? I just got done reading this article about an elderly gentleman who was shot and killed in his own driveway as he was walking out of his house (with his firearm) to check on his neighbor's burglar alarm. The police opened fire on him and snuffed him out. You can also read (and watch) stories about LEO (law enforcement officers) harassing people that have concealed carry permits and legalized open cary permits (where applicable), as well as people who video and photograph police. Hell, there's even an entire site dedicated to chronicling stories about harassment, goof ups, what-to-do, legal options, etc. The most negativity I've ever seen is the abundance of apathy where I hail from (backwoods NC), but now that I live in the suburbs in SC, the environment and attitudes are different, but since I've never dealt with any of them in this state, I don't know.

my town's "police officers" dont do shit. About 6 oz. of pot went "missing" from the evidence truck 12 years ago and they refuse to look for it... though we all know what happened tp it

No I don't believe the Police are out of control. Like regular people I believe they make mistakes and can break under pressure or stress. Sure it is sad that they killed the old man, but that doesn't make the police out of control. They were just jumpy. Also while it is a good neighborly thing to check on your neighbors when they're in trouble, it can be dangerous. I can see why the Police seeing him out on his property might think he was the burglar.

I'd say that they have been out of control for a long time.
