I wonder how much firepower each had. Oh yeah, and where'd they get them?

It was not a robot that killed him btw, despite the dipshit reports. It was a remote controlled device.

Just like a drone...

Yup. Neither one acts autonomously but is controlled by a human. We do not have suicide bombing robots [yet] fortunately.

He makes a case for Second amendment being essential mechanism to allow citizens armed means of resistance against government brutality. I wish there were thousands like him.

Being RC doesn't mean it wasn't a robot, and it was still an execution by police of a citizen using a tactic (and tool) of war.

Looks like BLM didn't bother to slow their roll following a night of cop assassinations. A couple of highways closed down, fireworks and rocks lobbed a police in a few more cities. Solid citizens, class acts.

Remote-controlled "robots" are used to destroy bombs (or suspected bombs) in law enforcement use all the time and have been as long as they've been around. I'm surprised it's taken this long for one to be used to blow up a person.

IEDs would be next logical step in this confrontation.

A website claims to have a photograph of the robber the cop thought Castile was:



Driving while black, indeed.

The site also claims that Castile's girlfriend is seen smoking cigarettes of the same type which were stolen, but, you know, that seems like a bit of a stretch.

There is also a photograph showing Castile's gun clearly resting under his thigh, as opposed to any kind of holster..

If this movement can't start exercising some basic hygiene, they are going to get Trump elected.

Yes, it exactly means that, just look up the definition of a robot. I have no issues with the rest of your statement, just don't want idiots jumping on this as a reason for why we should ban robots/AI. There were no robots involved in this incident..

It might be a misuse of the term, but everyone and their mother calls the thing a bomb disposal robot. There's no point in arguing semantics.

I haven't seen anyone mention anything like this. Are people making this argument?
