San Francisco: No to killer robots

by Marco van der Hoeven

The San Francisco Police Department does not get permission to use robots equipped with lethal weapon. In a surprising U-turn the San Francisco Board of Supervisors have reversed their earlier first round vote that allowed police to kill suspects with robots. This result of the second round of voting came after massive public outcry against deploying killer robots.

The Board of Supervisors now voted 8-3 to prohibit police from using remote-controlled robots with lethal force. This reversed the initial 8-3 approval of deadly robots that has led to protests in San Francisco This means police officers are not allowed to use robots to kill dangerous suspects like mass shooters and suicide bombers.
