Do you remember the 1987 movie “RoboCop”?
Guess what? He’s back! He is here to save you… or imprison you… or just kill you. The jury is still out.
I guess that would imply that a jury was still involved in the justice system in this allegedly fictional future. Get that silly thought out of your head right now.
RoboCop still has facial recognition, wi-fi, and a gun… what else is required to hand out Justice? How about a fleet of drones, autonomous vehicles and DNA guided bullets?
The original Paul Verhoeven directed movie starred Peter Weller as the malfunctioning semi-homicidal human / robot hybrid with enough firepower and quasi-legal justification to lay waste to wrong-doers that it makes even Janet Napolitano jealous.
Set in a future dystopic Detroit where crime runs rampant and corporations control everything. (Wait, did he say “Future”?) A cop gets horribly injured on the job, is saved by technology and then turned into a crime fighting robot with a human head against his soon to be unsuppressed will.
…and you thought YOUR health coverage was lame.
