Meet the RoboCop of Russia
Russia will now be able to keep up with their bad guys with the aid of R Bot 001 AKA Robokopa. Now on the streets of Perm, which is just outside of Moscow, he will primarily be used to record actions of offenders such as those who have had a little too much to drink. It then quotes the citizen the appropriate law that it is breaking in a monotone that would probably make anyone think she/he had just seen the equivalent of a pink elephant in her/his drunken state.
The giant egg-shaped Robocop weighs 250 kg and costs the department $10,000.00 per bot. By the way, the force reports that not all the bugs have been worked out as yet, for when it was recently surrounded by several small children attempting to look into its cameras, it threatened them. It seems to us that they could just get a real police officer to do the same thing for a lot less rubles.
