San Fran PD Deactivates Skynet, Won't Deploy Terminators To Unalive Citizens... For Now

San Francisco officials have voted against allowing the police to k*ll suspects with remote-controlled robots. The city’s board of supervisors reversed the policy it approved last week, following outcry and protests from citizens and civil rights groups. However, as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, the new ban is not necessarily permanent, and the issue has been sent “back to a committee for further discussion.”

The board originally approved the policy to let the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) use remote-controlled robots “as a deadly force option when risk of loss of life to members of the public or officers is imminent and outweighs any other force option available.”

A spokesperson for the SFPD said that the department’s robots — most of which are large units originally developed to disarm potential bombs in war zones — could be equipped with explosives “to contact, incapacitate, or disorient [a] violent, armed, or dangerous suspect” in “extreme circumstances to save or prevent further loss of innocent lives.” Robots have already been used in this way in the US before. In Dallas in 2016, police used a bomb disposal robot to k*ll an individual who had shot and k*lled five police officers at a rally.

Opponents of the policy said allowing police to k*ll with robots could make k*lling more likely

The policy was strongly criticized by civil rights groups who said it demonstrated the increasing and worrying militarization of US law enforcement. In one protest letter signed by 44 community groups, critics said the policy would “endanger lives needlessly” and that the public is “naturally uncomfortable with the use of armed robots in any situation.”

“There is no basis to believe that robots toting explosives might be an exception to police overuse of deadly force,” said the letter. “Using robots that are designed to disarm bombs to instead deliver them is a perfect example of this pattern of escalation, and of the militarization of the police force that concerns so many across the city.”

Arguments such as these seem to have persuaded San Francisco’s board of supervisors. One of the supervisors who originally voted in favor of the policy, Gordon Mar, said in a thread on Twitter that he’d since grown “increasingly uncomfortable with our vote & the precedent it sets for other cities.”

“I do not think making state violence more remote, distanced, & less human is a step forward,” said Mar. “I do not think removing the immediacy and humanity of taking a life and putting it behind a remote control is a reasonable step for a municipal police force. I do not think robots with lethal force will make us safer, or prevent or solve crimes.”

Another supervisor, Hillary Ronen, who had previously voted against the policy, also celebrated the u-turn on Twitter. “We just stopped the use of k*ller robots robots in SF,” tweeted Ronen. “Complete reversal from last week. Common sense prevailed."

It's crazy how we nonstop hear about the sh*t going on in every other country and start whole movements to condemn them. Every website had a Ukrainian flag on they sh*t for months.

But Americans read about police getting Terminators to k*ll people and it pop up in a news article once every couple months. If they had some sh*t like this in one of the countries America doesn't like, there would've been a hashtag for it by now and they would be talking about it on ESPN.

I wonder if people in other countries be ignoring their own problems to talk about sh*t going on here.
