A San Francisco police proposal could give cops in the city the ability to kill suspects using remote-controlled robots

A San Francisco police proposal could give cops in the city the ability to kill suspects using remote-controlled robots.

A draft policy that details the controversial proposal states lethal force by robots would be allowed if there was a deadly threat to cops of the public, local outlets reported this week.

“Robots will only be used as a deadly force option when risk of loss of life to members of the public or officers are imminent and outweigh any other force option available to SFPD,” part of the policy states, according to the news outlet Mission Local.

Assigned operators who would have to undergo training can operate the robots that are unmanned and controlled remotely, according to the draft policy.

If the draft policy is passed, the robots could be used during arrests, critical incidents, the execution of a warrant and during “suspicious device assessments,” the draft policy also states.

The rules committee that reviewed the proposal voted to send it to the Board of Supervisors to consider at a Tuesday meeting… stay turned for the results.
