American Dallas Police Used Man killing Bomb Disposal Robots

In the first time of history American Dallas police used robots to fight their enemies.  Early Friday morning, Dallas police used a bomb-disposal robot with an explosive device on its manipulator arm to kill a suspect after five police officers were murdered and seven others wounded.

The Remotec Andros F5 robot was sent into the garage containing 25-year-old Johnson on Thursday 7 July 2016, after he opened fire on police during a peaceful protest.

Several hours of negotiations had failed when the Dallas Police Department (DPD) deployed the robot, which was fitted with an explosive device on its arm.

The use of a robot, Coulson said, indicates police had determined the shooter was determined not to surrender, and could not be affected by gas, or hit by a police sniper, given his position.

While the creative use of the department’s Remotec model F-5 robot has been widely praised, it has also raised ethical weapons about what is essentially a civilian tool being used to take, rather than save lives.

Officers and the 25-year-old man ended up exchanging fire. After hours of attempted negotiations, a police surveillance robot armed with a bomb on its extending arm rolled onto the scene. The explosive was detonated in the man’s makeshift bunker, and he died in the blast.
