    The 5-foot, 300-pound R5 Autonomous Data Machine was dreamed up by its creators in the wake of the tragedy at Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary

    Yes, but a midget criminal would outwit all of its defenses.

    Makes you wonder. For millions of years, man hunted and needed to kill for food and all he came up with was a stick, spear or bone and eventually the bow and arrow. It took thousands of years of civilization to realize the gun and cannon, but today society is completely consumed with weaponizing absolutely anything that interacts with humans. The next thing will be the robot-nanny to deter Lindburgh child-kidnappers.

    Now they carry guns and UPS packages. But in all fairness so does that bastard who stole the box off my porch last week.

    It's a Liberal Robocop. No weapons, it over powers you with hugs and a EBT card.

    Those things would last five minutes in hood schools. They wouldn't stop any school shootings either.

    Nice publicity though. "Sandy Hook" seems to be the phrase that pays. Remember the guy selling bullet-proof blackboards?
