(Not The Bee) We covered this story the other day, but the San Francisco police department at some point decided it would be a brilliant idea to employ robots with deadly force in their department, causing quite a stir.
Of course, the image that comes to most people’s minds is RoboCop.
However, since the news broke, the SFPD has clarified that the robots would not carry guns.
They aren’t going to shoot people with robots. They’re just going to use the robots as suicide bombers to take out bad guys.
That’s what the police are saying, but there are, of course, opponents to this plan.
