China now using armed robot police...may be the future for gun confiscation in the USA.

https://www.ozy.com/fast-forward/chi...ca7aa936bb92b9

At Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, stun gun-wielding robots patrol crowds of tourists. While the robots negotiate their own path along designated routes, the stun guns are activated by an officer controlling the bot remotely. In Zhengzhou, the capital of China’s central Henan Province, similar police robots that look like armless Daleks roam the high-speed train station. They use facial-recognition software to help officers identify suspects, interact with customers and answer their questions. Police officers at the station wear facial-recognition sunglasses, developed by Beijing-based tech company LLVision, which pick out fake IDs and identify wanted criminals. And in the central metropolis of Wuhan, the Ministry of Public Security has teamed up with tech giant Tencent to develop a fully automated police station driven by the latter’s AI technology.

Robocop blended with 1984, Brave New World, Kafka and Fahrenheit-451.

NICE job of not putting in the thread title the arms we're talking about are stun-guns.

When people hear 'robot police' most probably think of a terminator-like robot, bipedal, humanoid, not controlled by anyone else...what they are using in China sounds more like remote control drones instead of robots.
