Shouldn't We Be Talking About The Robot That Took The Suspect Out, In Dallas?

News  Dallas Police Ambush  Jul 11 2016, 1:36 pm ET
Dallas Police Chief David Brown on Bombing Attack Suspect:
'I'd Do It Again'
by Elisha Fieldstadt

The Dallas police chief on Monday defended his decision to use a bomb-strapped robot to kill the gunman suspected of fatally shooting five officers, insisting he would "use any tool necessary to save our officers' lives."
"I'd do it again," David Brown said, adding that the move "wasn't an ethical dilemma for me."
He said he only advised those operating the robot after a two-hour standoff with the the gunman, Micah Xavier Johnson, "not to bring the building down. That was the extent of my guidance," Brown said. The plan was devised in about 15 minutes, he said.
"We knew this was the suspect. He was asking us how many did he get," Brown said. "And he was telling us how many more he wanted to get."
At that point, it was unknown how many officers Johnson had injured. Later, Brown learned that five were killed and others were wounded. He said Monday that nine officers were injured in the ambush.

Shouldn't we give this some serious discussion or does this 'robotic blowing up a human being' ...just become the judge-jury-execution and not even a 2nd glance or a concerned WTF about how this all went down so dam fast?

In this case i think he could have provided some valuable insight
Particularly in the specific demographic of black ex-solider.

This is probably part of the reason they used the robot with bombs is he seems to have been quite good at combat.
and following the middle east wars how many thousands of other black ex-soldiers are there in the USA  Neutral
2 things rather telling here:
a.) When the police are allowed to write their own script there seem to be many that turn a blind eye to the legal method of our LAWS
b.) blowing up a piece of $100,000. Equipment along with a wounded perp seems justified when a gas canisters/ flash bomb would have been just as effective and saved both the human and that highly expensive piece of equipment

REVENGE ...just another dead black man in a highly volatile / adreninlin saturated situation that had other options available but now Pandora's  Box has been lifted; what will be the justification for the next time?

These robots will be patrolling our streets in about 20 years. Suspect

Hardly "just another dead black man" - more like a dead murdering bastard who killed several police officers because they were white.

Try saying what you mean instead of using "figures of speech". It sounded like you think the man is a victim.

Stop being so nice Rags, killers are killers. You cant rehabilitate murderers however kind you may be silent

I didn't know I was being nice, and I wasn't talking about rehabilitation. I was talking about insight into what makes people turn into cold-blooded killers.

Yes, it is very troubling. There are several new technologies that are troubling. Lasers--you don't have to bring aboard a bomb on an airplane, just stand in your back yard and shine a laser into the cockpit of a plane. Drones--you don't have to be there, just have the drone drop a stick of dynamite on your mother-in-law's house.

And these tidy little robots that sidle up and kill with impunity.

Are you telling me, that men are not from Mars? Neutral
