San Francisco To Allow Police ‘Killer Robots’

San Francisco’s ruling Board of Supervisors has voted to let the city’s police use robots that can kill.

The measure permits police to deploy robots equipped with explosives in extreme circumstances.

Dr Catherine Connolly, from the group Stop Killer Robots, said the move was a slippery slope that could distance humans from killing.

The city’s police, the SFPD, said they do not currently operate any robots equipped with lethal force.
