Friends, let's talk about slippery slopes.

In the midst of the anger and the grief over the police murders of black men and the subsequent assassinations of police officers, we may overlook the neat trick that the control state played to their advantage: the use of a robot to kill a person.

I know there's a lot of work to do in the U.S. and elsewhere in terms of racial disparity and police behavior, so I am not trying to shift focus away from that. I just didn't want this extraordinary event to pass without reflection on its larger implications.

The alleged sniper from the Dallas attack, purportedly cornered in a parking ramp, was blown up with C-4 explosives delivered by Rosie the Robot.

Now the police can bomb suspects. Now robots can kill civilians.

I know, you'll say "that guy had it coming" or "there was no other way"...But the truth is:

1). We don't know the real story in these situations because the "authorities" provide the information to the controlled media;

2). When the story goes that this man may have been part of an organized unit still active, it seems a little creative thinking would have been applied to take him alive for questioning;

3). A robot killed a person, and isn't it interesting that in the wake of the ongoing deaths of black men by police, here is another - the first person to die by robot: an African-American man. Ironic?

A day will come when we won't be dismayed seeing drones and robots policing, surveilling, and controlling us. It will be "normal".

Will it matter if everyone is treated equally by remote-controlled technology?

In spite of our outrage at the deaths of black people and the deaths of police officers, there is one clear winner in this situation: the control state.

And that makes all of us losers, black and white.

Great comment on a tragic incident. I too consider killing suspects as suspect. How many bodies under blankets are actually dead we don't know. We will never know of mitigating circumstances which lead to act of violence. I agree with all lose in this game apart from them controlling it.
