Second Life's Virtual Meth Lab Will Help Train Police

June 10, 2009 -

While Second Life has many uses, law enforcement training has not historically been among them. But that may be changing.

New World Notes reports that consultant Fred Fuchs, who goes by Gus Plisskin in Second Life, designed a virtual meth lab to help cops recognize when they've stumbled upon the real thing. Such labs are not only illegal, they're extremegly dangerous as well.

Said Fuchs/Plisskin of his virtual meth lab project:

We hope to encourage use of SL for training law enforcement and social workers. We found that a walk-thru helped other types of clients think about ways they could use SL... Accuracy in simulations is 'my thing'.

I'm slightly concerned about the article that was provided that talked about the dangers of meth labs. One of the "signs that you might have a meth lab near you" is "Inhabitants smoking outside due to fumes." At my house we have a no smoking rule, anyone that wants to smoke has to go outside. All I mean is that, if knee-jerk reactions happen, innocent people can have their houses raided by police.

Then again, maybe this SL meth lab will help to prevent that =)

Of course! Those aren't to make you aware of meth lebs, just to install a general 'meth lab paranoia' in you.

Oh good. THIS won't be controversial at ALL. There's no WAY people will see the purpose of this area incorrectly.

This reminds me of a bonehead comment I read on Facebook- one guy posted on another guy's wall telling him that cops have busted down a local meth lab and took a lot of stuff. His reaction: "Let's go in and use the drugs that are left!" Let everyone in Facebook know that you're breaking in a used lab to take some meth.

lomdrPretty much, Andrew. And hell, it helps that it is a bit reasonably priced too. $8 for 1, $12 for both at once08/28/2014 - 3:43am

MaskedPixelanteSo, there's been massive positive reception to the Mario Kart 8 DLC bundle. Somehow, I doubt it would have gotten as much positive buzz if they called it a "Season Pass".08/27/2014 - 9:34pm

Andrew EisenAlso, I know it's nitpicking but only ONE of the 21 movies on offer goes for $15. Four more are $10 and the rest are $6. But right now, all of them are $6 (except for two that are free).08/27/2014 - 3:22pm

Andrew EisenNot if they've hired more people.08/27/2014 - 3:13pm
MaskedPixelantePlus, now that they're negotiating movies, that's LESS manpower to negotiate true, pre-2000, non-console-port classics.08/27/2014 - 3:08pm
MaskedPixelanteNo rewatch value, once you've seen it there's no reason to rewatch it, and it's 15 bucks down the drain.08/27/2014 - 3:06pm
E. Zachary KnightIndie movies are a great start. They need a great distribution system too.08/27/2014 - 3:04pm
Andrew EisenEven if that were true, so what?08/27/2014 - 3:01pm
