The San Francisco City Board of Supervisors has approved the use of robots with the power to kill in police operations.

The measure allows the police to use robots equipped with explosives in extreme circumstances.

“The robots could potentially be equipped with explosive charges to breach fortified structures containing violent, armed or dangerous people,” a police spokesman explained to the BBC.

According to him, robots could also be used to “disable or disorient violent, armed or dangerous suspects who pose a risk of death”.
