San Francisco Reverses Decision to Allow Police to Use Killer Robots

HeadlineDec 07, 2022

San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to ban police from using “killer robots.” The vote reverses a decision made by the board just last week to allow the explosives-laden robots to be deployed, which was met with outrage from residents and rights advocates. SFPD will still be able to use the robots in some nonlethal situations.
