Can I fill out a police report online for a stolen vehicle so I don't have to go up to the police department here in Tulsa, Oklahoma?
No.Says who? The website for Tulsa PD that I found in a couple of seconds using Google.It says stolen vehicle reports will not be accepted online. It says to call the stated phone number to have an officer sent to your location. It does appear to be a pretty clear answer. See the link.Report a Crime OnlineI was a Police Officer in Oklahoma. We always required someone to come in, show ID and ownership documents if there was any question then sign the report. Why? If someone decided to lodge a report of a stolen vehicle as revenge or for any reason that was not legitimate, it could place someone in serious danger. If any law enforcement saw a vehicle entered into NCIC as stolen they must take precautions as if a dangerous person is in possession of it. The FBI maintains the NCIC system and their criteria must be met before a vehicle gets entered.National Crime Information Center (NCIC)This is not a boyfriend or roommate who borrowed it and is late coming back or a teen breaking a family rule situation, but reporting a stolen vehicle that could be with a real criminal who may have it to escape after a robbery, murder or anything else. A high risk stop will be done in most cases and multiple guns would be pointed at people. This is serious, life and death stuff. Mess around and make a false report and it won't simply be the local police on your case.Do you think taking an online report from someone who doesn't feel like making the effort to do a stolen vehicle report in person is a good idea? How can they ensure that the reporting party is the owner and not some trollish jerk who doesn't mind placing lives in danger to get his kicks? If it was you and your family at gunpoint in the dark being made to get prone in the street, would you be okay with that being done on the basis of an online report? I surely would not be okay with it.
If guns ever were made illegal in the US, how would they collect all of them from gun owners?
If guns ever were made illegal in the US, how would they collect all of them from gun owners?Let me run with this hypothetical.*Poof* tomorrow the Constitution is amended and the Second Amendment prohibiting the government from restricting this right is repealed. The day after tomorrow a law is passed making gun ownership illegal. (Or perhaps another Constitutional amendment)Everyone has three weeks to turn their guns into the police to be destroyed. As a nod to keep it from being a theft, you will be given an Amazon gift card for $20 and a coupon for a free Big Mac as payment for your stash of guns.There will be some gun owners who turn in their guns and wash their hands of it. I don't think it will be many, but some will. A quick google search told me that there are 393 million small arms in the hands (arms in hands?) of American civilians. I will assure you with absolute certainty that that many will not be turned in, not even close.So…How does the government go about getting the rest of the guns?Look up the registry to see who owns them?Well, we don't have a registry. You don't have to tell the government you are buying a gun. A gun shop has to check to see if you are legally able to buy one, but they don't then report that you did buy one, or which one you bought.Go door to door checking to see if you have a gun?This is a massive undertaking and it runs afoul of the Fourth Amendment protections against searches without probable cause.Make it a felony to own one with long prison time?Yeah, this could be done, but it wouldn't do anything. Guess what else is a felony with long prison time? (murder, armed robbery, rape, burglary, and many other violent crimes) If you're already ignoring the law, why will this law be any different. Worse yet, anyone who keeps their gun and then defends himself from one of the above listed violent crimes now suddenly becomes a felon himself and gets to spend time behind bars. (Well, perhaps prison is better than death, or sexual assault, or…)At the end of the day, there would still be millions and millions of guns in circulation by the new class of "felons” in America.
How can I obtain Japanese citizenship?
Great answers by Dick Karp and David LaSpina.I can only add my two cents of knowledge to their insights.The first thing: citizenship and naturalization are two different matters.You can only get citizenship if you were born from Japanese parents, AND being registered within 3 months with your local Japanese consulate.AND when you reach 20 years old, it's mandatory you choose whether lose your local citizenship or your Japanese citizenship.Should you not make a move, you lose your Japanese one by default.On the other hand, you might be naturalised Japanese (i.e.: become a non-born Japanese with a permanent visa) if all these criteria are met:- you're living for at least 5 years in Japan- you're at least 20 years old- you can read, write and speak Japanese fluently- you are willing to go through writing exams and interview processes- you have professional skills and $ to support yourselfEvery case is examined and weighed individually. Say, if one of your parents is Japanese (Japanese-born), the Ministry of Justice may wave the age and residence requirements. But again: it is a case-by-case process.Sources:Japanese nationality lawI want to become a Japanese nationalMany angles to acquiring Japanese citizenship | The Japan TimesAlso, I went myself to my local Japan consulate and talked with them.
How do I teach a lesson to an online scammer who took my money and didn’t give me what I wanted (I don't want to approach the police)?
Question: How do I teach a lesson to an online scammer who took my money and didn’t give me what I wanted (I don't want to approach the police)?You don’t.Seriously.You have stated that you “don’t want to approach the police” which would be the most effective means of “teaching the scammer”, as the authorities would then file a report that may be used later during any criminal prosecution. If the scammer is sent to jail or prison for their actions, then there’s little that you could do to them that would meet or exceed that unpleasant scenario.The fact that you are even asking indicates that you cannot think of how to do anything on your own, which puts you several steps (at least) behind the scammer. He or she already tricked you and now you are looking for methods from other people so you can attempt to somehow punish or trick them. How or why wouldn’t they be able to trick you again if you cannot foment your own plan for revenge?This isn’t a television series or some low budget film, questioner: It’s real life. Your scammer has moved onto other victims and likely has no idea who you are and why you are still concerned about him or her. Even if you were given a plan or series of ideas of how to get back at your scammer, they either wouldn’t work, wouldn’t work well, or would allow your scammer to potentially find another method to scam you yet again. Which one of those things sounds promising to you?Fill out a police report and move on with your life.
How do I report a man I met online to the police?
I have to assume that you don't live in the United States.Simply go the police station and ask to fill out a complaint. Don't be surprised when little happens as the police are ill-equipped to handle.most Internet-based criminal activity and to be very blunt, your allegations don't sound that serious.Fill out a complaint, stop communicating with the person and move forward with your life. If the police are going to handle the matter, they'll contact you later. If not, then the matter will simply fade from view.
How you can spot a scammer using US Army profiles?
The US Government pays all associated costs with “you” and anything that involves “your” service in the US Armed forces. Deployment costs (including travel, medical, and Anything else associated with deployment including travel), all medical expenses (as long as they occur while you are in the military, no they will not pay for a sex change it would cause complications to your military commitment), you get free dental (all necessary surgery and exams, fillings, etc. are free) free ophthalmology (including free glasses and exams), you pretty much pay for nothing when in military service (except for things you want to do, i.e. travel to exotic places, drinking and partying, etc.). The government will give you all necessary paperwork that you need, if you loose it you can usually get a copy within hours or maybe only a few days pretty much no matter where you are in the world. They take care of everything necessary to military service anywhere you are in the world. You do not have to pay to retire, travel to or from a deployment, have a procedure done or any other stupid thing some scammer can come up with!
How do I fill out a 1120 tax report?
If you are not sophisticated with taxes, DON'T try this form. You can get yourself in a lot of trouble. Get a good CPA or EA. The time and effort it will take you to figure this thing out is not worth it. If you value your time at more than the minimum wage, you will save time and money by hiring a professional.
