Title: Ironicpower Player Report CKEY: Lacran Your Discord: Kiwi Offender’s CKEY: Unknown LRP or MRP server: MRP Offender’s In-Game Name: Man Date (MM-DD-YYYY): 16/9/2020 Round Number: 21356 Rules Broken: 13/14 Incident Description: A PAI was opening the cell doors to perma to release a prisoner so any time I saw it on the brig I attacked with my my police baton to either chase it off your attempt to wipe it, the HoS ordered I stop, so I stopped to explain the situation to him, I also told him to check with the A.I. I then continued attempting to remove the PAI from the brig as we had discovered the prisoner it had tried to release was a ling. The HoS kept telling me to leave it, I kept reminding him what had occurred and he kept ignoring it in favor or protecting the PAI. Eventually he did check with the A.I which had reported the PAI, and it confirmed my story, the HoS finally ordered it wiped, I called him an idiot for stopping me and shoved him. He then demoted me, citing insubordination.
The issue I take with this is a head knowingly punishing an officer for attempting to stop a PAI from releasing perma prisoners from the brig, which is a task a sec officer is expected to do. Demoting an officer on the grounds of not following an order which both breaks space law and could potentially result in more antags getting out of perma is fundamentally bad Head Play.
Regarding the shoving yes that is assault and could be punishable but in the context of the HoS stopping an officer from removing a direct threat to the station, and making little effort to investigate the situation promptly, a shove is a pretty reasonable response. Demoting an officer for not following orders you now KNOW to be both unlawful and dangerous is not a reasonable response for a Head of Security to have.
