Was Crocodile stronger at Marineford? Or was he holding back in Alabasta?

 During the Alabasta arc, Crocodile displayed a level of power that was initially considered overwhelming by the Straw Hat Pirates. He possessed the Logia-type Devil Fruit called the Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-Sand Fruit), which granted him the ability to control and transform into sand. He had a reputation as a Shichibukai and controlled the desert kingdom of Alabasta from the shadows. His strength was showcased through his battles with Luffy and others. At Marineford, Crocodile was present as part of the war that took place at Marine Headquarters. While he did participate in the battle, he didn't display the same level of dominance as some other powerful characters present. This has led fans to speculate that he might not have been as strong as initially portrayed in Alabasta. It's important to note that power scaling and character abilities can be subject to interpretation and development by the author. Oda often keeps details deliberately open-ended to keep the story intriguing.

YouTuber ‘IShowSpeed’ Handcuffed by Ohio Cops

 

The Cincinnati Police Department released exclusive footage of YouTube streamer Darren "IShowSpeed" being handcuffed and arrested on September 21. The incident happened on August 8, 2022, after the streamer was swatted. The events were partially live streamed on his YouTube channel.


Swatting is a type of prank in which a fake call to the police is made to intervene at a streamer's residence, usually while they are live streaming. Many content creators have faced similar issues over the years, with one resulting in the death of an innocent man (2017 Wichita swatting).

Many users, including social media reporter Jake Lucky, shared Darren's incarceration. The entire drama unfolded in the video as the police officers made an inexplicable arrest.

IShowSpeed is arrested in disturbing video footage.
Fans were only aware of the video that was initially uploaded to the streamer's channel, which documented only about one and a half minutes of footage, for many weeks. Earlier this week, the Law & Crime Network YouTube channel released body cam footage of Cincinnati Police Officers handcuffing the streamer.

IShowSpeed was approached by several officers before being restrained in the video. The streamer from Ohio was overheard saying:

"However, I didn't do nothing."
The officer in charge responded by indicating that a bogus call had been placed in his name. He stated:

"No, no, we'll explain later. Take a moment to listen. Someone with your name dialled..."

IShowSpeed directed his cameraman to pick up his phone and begin recording in the midst of the chaos. The livestream lasted less than two minutes before another officer demanded he stop. 
In separate footage, the cameraman explains the situation to one of the cops.
Later in the video, the officer told Darren that his detention was the result of a call to the help line claiming to "kill" himself and his family.

Camera footage was also taken from inside the police vehicle, where a visibly distressed IShowSpeed can be seen pleading his case while the officers continued their investigation.
IShowSpeed has amassed a large fan base in the last year, making the entire swatting drama highly debated. Many fans stated that the manner of conduct

IShowSpeed has amassed a sizable fan base in the last year, fueling heated debate about the entire swatting drama. Many fans complained about the police's harsh behaviour.

Darren is not the only streamer who has recently been swatted. Twitch streamer Adin Ross and professional Apex Legends player Phillip "ImperialHal" met similar ends.
