Violent crime is up in cities across the country.
And Democrat politicians are avoiding obvious solutions to the problem.
Yet cities are considering one law enforcement measure that will send a chill down your spine.
Democrats have been embracing pro-crime policies that have led to spikes in violent crime and urban decay.
Instead of focusing on unwinding these harmful problems, cities like San Francisco are instead flirting with killer robots.
The city halted plans to use robots that allow police officers to use lethal force, but the proposal alone should be concerning.
“San Francisco supervisors have walked back their approval of a controversial policy that would have allowed police to kill some suspects with robots in extreme cases. Instead of granting final authorization to the policy Tuesday in its second of two required votes, the Board of Supervisors reversed course and voted 8-3 to explicitly prohibit police from using remote-controlled robots with lethal force. It was a rare step: The board’s second votes on local laws are typically formalities that don’t change anything,” The San Francisco Chronicle reported.
But the board’s initial approval of the deadly robot policy last week sparked a wave of public outcry from community members and progressive supervisors who threatened to go to the ballot if their colleagues did not change their minds on Tuesday.
San Francisco has authorized open-air drug dens and decriminalized theft under $950.
Meanwhile, law-abiding citizens are hit with gargantuan parking tickets and other fines.
San Francisco is a perfect example of anarcho-tyranny in action; anarchy for the criminals, and tyranny for the people who follow the law.
Under that system, it’s concerning to ponder who the killer robots are for.
The Chronicle added that “[a]fter approving a new version of the police policy that bans officers from using robots to kill dangerous suspects such as mass shooters and suicide bombers, supervisors separately sent the original deadly-robot provision of the policy back for further review…The fight is part of a larger Bay Area conflict about how to balance public safety with modern technology while safeguarding civil liberties. In September, San Francisco supervisors approved a controversial policy to let police temporarily monitor live surveillance feeds in some cases, despite critics who thought it trampled on privacy rights.”
Before San Francisco officials approve killer robots, perhaps they should allow police officers to arrest thieves and shut down heroin markets operating in shantytowns on public property.
