San Francisco leaders voted to allow the city’s police department to use lethal force with robots in emergency situations.

“Under this policy, SFPD is authorized to use these robots to carry out deadly force in extremely limited situations when risk to loss of life to members of the public or officers is imminent and outweighs any other force option available,” City Supervisor Rafael Mandelman wrote on Twitter.

On Tuesday, San Francisco leaders voted 8-3 in support of the new policy.

According to a police department spokesperson, the San Francisco Police Department has 17 robots, but none are armed with guns, and the department has no plans to do so. The department could deploy robots equipped with explosive charges “to contact, incapacitate, or disorient violent, armed, or dangerous suspect.”

“Robots equipped in this manner would only be used in extreme circumstances to save or prevent further loss of innocent lives,” SFPD spokesperson Allison Maxie said in a statement.

Civil liberty groups and others claimed using robots would militarize the police force.

“We are living a dystopian future, where we debate whether the police may use robots to execute citizens without a trial, jury, or judge,” Tifanei Moyer, a senior staff attorney of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of San Francisco Bay Area previously told Mission Local.

“No legal professional or ordinary resident should carry on as if it is normal,” Moyer added.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed’s office said using robots to enforce the law “strikes a good balance between protecting lives and establishing guardrails to prevent misuse.”

“The Mayor supports policies that allow police officers to quickly and safely respond to situations that involve a risk of violence to the public, and this includes tools such as live video or robotics technology. These tools should be available to peace officers to employ to save lives,” the mayor’s office told Fox News Digital on Wednesday morning.

“If the police are called to serve in a situation where someone intends to do harm or is already doing harm to innocent people, and there is technology that can help to end the violence and save lives, we need to allow police to use these tools to save lives,” the statement continued. ]

Supervisors amended the proposal to specify that officers could use robots only after using alternative force or de-escalation tactics.

Only a few high-ranking officers could authorize using robots to use deadly force.

SF has spent decades endorsing evil and calling it good and redefining morality into its own twisted view. Even with 10,000 robot cops, the decay of civilization will continue there until it returns to a Judeo-Christian ethic. Gonna be a while.

Actually, SF will never return to Judeo-Christian ethics. That city is doomed to go the way of Sodom and Gomorrah; utter destruction. God’s Word is clear.

And what happens if someone hacks one of these robots, or if there is a bug in the robots’ programming? Also, who programs the robots? Woke fired twitter employees? Will the woke agenda included in the robots coding?

Dem Representative Conyers died in 2019. Which makes many of us happy.

His mother Lucy passed in 2000. By all accounts a very nice lady.

John Conyers died in 2019. John Conner may either be here now or somewhere in the future but he’s probably busy fighting for our future.

So they won’t arrest shoplifters in SF or anyone stealing less than $950, and release dangerous criminals onto the street by prohibiting cash bail, but then turn around want to K**l people with robots?

Not “robots”. Remote devices. Robot implies that the machine makes decisions, judgements.

The reality that use of this “drone” will indeed save the lives of police.

However, I will offer a single condition before allowing use. There must be a hardwire cable between the unit and the human operator. Absolutely CANNOT be wireless. ZERO capability to accept wireless commands.

There are 12 year olds who will learn to hack the controls, just for fun. There are adult criminals who will hack it and sell the code.

These civil liberties lawyers are comical in a sad way. They are more concerned about criminal’s liberties and much less concerned with good people civil liberties. I believe the police when they say they are only for use in extreme situations. What can’t these lawyer goofballs understand? One of these robot in TX could have saved 19 people!
