Deadly Robot Cop in San Francisco Police Department Very Soon.
Robocop could soon become a reality as police have proposed using robot cops to kill suspects in America.
The machines would be equipped with lasers or explosives (which was a technique used in Dallas in 2016) and would be used in rare circumstances where human life is at risk.
The new policy would define how the SFPD is allowed to use its military-style weapons and would see the machines used in “rare” circumstances.
The proposal has been met with criticism from some who believe that giving machines the power to kill people is a slippery slope that could lead to a dystopian future.
The proposal will be debated next week by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors Rules Committee.
If approved, the use of “less lethal” robots by police will still be restricted and will only be used as a “last resort” when human life is at risk.
