US Could Soon Have Police Robots With Ability To Kill

US Police Robots Kill

 

A new policy proposed by the US police force is set to allow robots to use deadly force against people.

 

 

Although this was first prohibited, San Francisco police are now proposing they should be able to give robots the power to attack people, and even take a human life.

 

Dallas police believed to be first in U.S. to kill a suspect with a robot -  The Daily Dot

 

The policy states: “Robots will only be used as a deadly force option when risk of loss of life to members of the public or officers are imminent and outweigh any other force option available to SFPD [San Francisco Police Department].”

 

Do you agree with this?
