So disturbed am I over the police use of a robot to kill an American civilian on American soil for the first time in American history that I have created a petition on WhiteHouse.gov in order to hopefully get enough signatures for President Barack Obama to address the issue (100,000 signatures in 30 days are necessary).
If you feel as strongly as I do that we should not allow “Robocop” to become a reality, please sign on to the petition by clicking here.
The petition reads:
Title: “We must not allow law enforcement to use robotic devices (including drones) in order to kill civilians on American soil!”
On July 7, 2016, for the first time in American history, police officers in Dallas, Texas, affixed an explosive device to a robotic device in order to kill a suspected perpetrator. (If a bomb can be affixed to a robot, so can a tranquilizer dart or a canister of knock-out gas! We MUST use NON-LETHAL ways of neutralizing suspected perpetrators wherever possible!)
The Dallas police, on July 7, 2016, in violation of the protections guaranteed by the United States Constitution, acted as prosecutors, judges, juries — and executioners.
This serious abuse of police power must be made illegal by executive order or an act of Congress.
No state-sanctioned use of robotic devices (including drones) in order to kill civilians on American soil!
Thank you in advance! We become a totalitarian state goose step by goose step!
