yep

It says it’ll kill them based on whether an officer “feels threatened”. Yeah, I’m sure that’ll go well and there won’t be a bias towards any minorities at all. I’m also sure the bots will never ever have a false positive or overreact. /s

intense screaming

Can’t even fire (send him to a 6 month vacation) the robocop now and will probably say “the system malfunctioned” when it kills an unarmed black teen

Robocop was a moral man who was forced to be a boot, and ultimately turned on his fascist masters. The whole movie was an anti-capitalist anti-fascist satire on a corporate police state. This is just Terminator.

Yay it’s starting :/

Soon the riots begin, the Mycus grows, New England gets quarantined, animals become larger and more aggressive, otherworldly horrors begin to walk the Earth.
