How SNEAKY these people are:

 

https://www.engadget.com/san-francisco-police-seek-permission-for-its-robots-to-use-deadly-force-183514906.html

 

At first glance you think "Well, there are situations where this would be useful."

 

But when AI comes into the picture the situation changes of course.

 

BANG you are dead on the ground.

 

Its nobody's fault - you made body movements which the robot classed as a threat.

 

ALSOOOOO...

 

Why DEADLY FORCE rather than THE BULLETPROOF ROBOT SIMPLY GRABBING THE SUSPECT???

 

This ABSOLUTELY REEKS OF AI POLICE STATE.

 

David and others were RIGHT about this one:

 

 

 

The San Francisco Police Department is currently petitioning the city's Board of Supervisors for permission to deploy robots to kill suspects that law enforcement deems a sufficient threat that the "risk of loss of life to members of the public or officers is imminent and outweighs any other force option available to SFPD." The draft policy, which was written by the SFPD itself, also seeks to exclude "hundreds of assault rifles from its inventory of military-style weapons and for not include personnel costs in the price of its weapons," according to a report from Mission Local.

 

As Mission Local notes, this proposal has already seen significant opposition from both within and without the Board. Supervisor Aaron Peskin, initially pushed back against the use of force requirements, inserting “Robots shall not be used as a Use of Force against any person," into the policy language. The SFPD removed that wording in a subsequent draft, which I as a lifelong San Francisco resident did not know was something that they could just do. The three-member Rules Committee, which Peskin chairs, then unanimously approved that draft and advanced it to the full Board of Supervisors for a vote on November 29th. Peskin excused his decision by claiming that “there could be scenarios where deployment of lethal force was the only option.

 

The police force currently maintains a dozen fully-functional remote-controlled robots, which are typically used for area inspections and bomb disposal. However, as the Dallas PD showed in 2016, they make excellent bomb delivery platforms as well. Bomb disposal units are often equipped with blank shotgun shells used to forcibly disrupt an explosive device's internal workings, though there is nothing stopping police from using live rounds if they needed, as Oakland police recently acknowledged to that city's civilian oversight board.

THE KILLER ROBOTS HAVE BEEN APPROVED:

 

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted 8-3 Tuesday night to approve a controversial policy that would allow police to deploy robots capable of using lethal force in extraordinary circumstances, according to multiple reports. From a report: The Washington Post reports the vote came after a heated debate on a policy that would allow officers to use ground-based robots to kill "when risk of loss of life to members of the public or officers is imminent and officers cannot subdue the threat after using alternative force options or de-escalation tactics." The Post says the measure still requires a second vote next week and the mayor's approval.

"There could be an extraordinary circumstance where, in a virtually unimaginable emergency, they might want to deploy lethal force to render, in some horrific situation, somebody from being able to cause further harm," Supervisor Aaron Peskin said at the board meeting, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. But Supervisors Dean Preston, Hillary Ronen and Shamann Walton voted against the policy, the Chronicle reported. "There is serious potential for misuse and abuse of this military-grade technology, and zero showing of necessity," Preston said at the meeting. Ultimately, the board adopted an amendment requiring one of two high-ranking San Francisco Police Department leaders to authorize any use of a robot for lethal force, according to the Chronicle.

They already use it in another state to detonate a bomb to blow peeps up in 2016 🧕🏿😂

Today - only to be used in exceptional circumstances.

 

Tomorrow - we are in lockdown. These are exceptional circumstances and we must protect the majority of law abiding people who are staying in their homes.

 

Plenty of us ignored the rules during previous lockdowns but if there were robots patrolling every area with orders to kill ANY human in the interest of national security, then we might not be so keen to be seen out and about.

 

You can argue with a policeman but no robot is going to understand you. They have dehumanised us all to a degree, so to have a killing machine with no conscience is a psychopath's wet dream.

 

It wouldn't surprise me if they have millions of killing machines already mass produced and ready to go.
