San Francisco Cancels Robot-Killing Machines

San Francisco Cancels Robot-Killing Machines

San Francisco Board of Supervisors reversed course after they approved the ordinance in an 8-3 vote on Nov. 29.

In late November, we shared a report that the San Francisco Police Department proposed a new policy to give robots the license to kill.

Thankfully, we can now share that the San Francisco supervisors voted to cancel the plans for the “killer police robots.” Maybe they watched the movie(s) about this very thing.

Groups protested outside San Francisco’s City Hall, and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors listened.

“The news comes a day after community groups protested outside San Francisco’s City Hall condemning the ordinance, which the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved in an 8-3 vote on Nov. 29.”

Gotta love those who always react before they read.

Plan to use killer robots to kill has been killed before they had a chance to kill anybody.

Perhaps they can use the funds to fund robots to dispense new needles to drug addicts.

They need to prove themselves first by demonstrating robots that can clean shit and needles off the sidewalks competently. Then we’ll talk.

If any place in the world is in desperate need of robot killing machines, its San Francisco.

I think they should try again, but with better messaging.

Maybe the problem is just that everyone has gotten the idea that these robot killing machines are “robot killing machines”. They should have called them, “gender fluid diversity social workers”. Then, no one on the Left would have dared oppose them.

Its “robot killing machine”, not “robot-killing machine”.

Its not a machine whose purpose is to kill robots.

Misplaced hyphens can be as bad as misplaced apostrophes.

    I was confused.. why would anyone make a machine to kill robots?? Were they out of control, and threatening San Franciscans?

    Usually Leslie writes stuff about CA… hmmmmm

I’ll buy THAT for a dollar!!!

The robots are love. #NoJudgment #NoLabels

The robots are merely an extension of State’s Choice, democratic/dicatorial “heroes” of planned parenthood, planned parent/hood, planned peoplehood to remove “burdens” perchance to sequester excess carbon to mitigate climate change. Net Zero! NOW!

That said, election to abortion. All’s fair in lust and abortion, in peace and war.

    Dang, your posts can be hard to read with all the punctuations thrown in, but this time I can agree.
    .

Ignorance all the way down. This is not to say I support remote controlled death machines, but these “robots” are not in any way autonomous. They are remotely controlled drones. This issue will not go away. In fact these machines have already be used to legally kill a suspect in the US. Some of you may recall an incident in Dallas over 6 years ago involving one of these “robots”, an active shooter, and a bomb strapped to said robot.

This isn’t Robocop. This is someone sitting behind a computer screen with a joystick.

We’re safe as long as they don’t use VISTA.
