Using robots to stop violent acts in theory but in actuality I don't think it will have good results. It stopping violent acts people need to have very critical thinking which I think would be lacking in a robot. Robots would need to be programmed for certain things and there would be many glitches for the robots.

Robots should not be used to stop violent acts

The man who was suspected of perpetrating the shooting in Dallas was killed after a tense showdown with police, which finally ended in the use of a robot armed with a bomb. This is an example of how advanced technology can put a stop to violent confrontations, with the possibility of deterring them altogether.

The use of technology to stop violent acts is wonderful if you ask me. But we have to pay attention to the costs that are appended to technology. How much is it going to cost, money-wise to stop these acts? Is it going to be cost effective? Will it be usable after? How long will it last? there are many questions pertaining to this topic we still don't have answers to.

Police agencies should use any means at their disposal to safely end hostage and active shooter situations. There are too many people with access to weapons that can kill and injure many, quickly. The goal of law enforcement should be to protect as many people, as quickly as possible, every time, using robots if that helps.

Police agencies should not have access to military style weapons either. This will lead to the discussion should civilians have these also? There was a reason why they tried to cover this up at first by calling it a suicide. This will lead to many questions.

You are absolutely right. I think our military has already showed us how ineffective killing with machines can be.

With law enforcement’s rapidly expanding access to robots that can roll into and fly over hostage situations, gunfights, chases and standoffs, experts say it’s just a matter of time before they’ll be used again to kill.

I think that is totally wrong. This kind of technology is not needed in a civilian setting. There is nothing someone can possibly do that they should need to use this on regular people. This is the beginning of the end. This thing malfunctions and kills hundreds. I can already see the news stories now.

They should use anything possible to keep people safe. As long as they can make sure they are doing the right thing and not harming innocent people.
