Somewhat interesting eve-o thread on the redevelopment of the crimewatch system and its implications for highsec pvp here: https://forums.eveonline.com/default...posts&t=133044
To put these posts into context, the discussion deals with the planned reworking of the system that governs aggression/GCC timers in Empire space. At Fanfest, a new version was discussed in which there would be three possible states: innocent, suspect, and felon. Innocents have done nothing wrong and cannot be shot in highsec without the shooter getting CONCORDokkened. Suspects have stolen from someone or done something similar that is criminal but doesn't incur a response from CONCORD; they can be shot freely by anyone without CONCORD getting involved. Felon status is equivalent to the current GCC - CONCORD will kill you in highsec, sentries will shoot you in lowsec. The original version of this reworked system drew a lot of criticism because while it allowed suspects to be shot by anyone in highsec, it didn't allow them to shoot back.
