Is Imprisonment By Robot Jailers Coming Soon?

With jails fuller than ever and government budgets being slashed, is the future of prisoner management the robo-correctional officer? Via CBS News:

The world’s first corrections service robot allows for efficient prisoner management and takes on a number of simple tasks for guards while closing the communication gap between prisoners and their guards. The prisoners are protected from situations such as suicide, arson and assault. Furthermore, it recognizes repeated behaviors of prisoners, and detects anomalies in advance, protecting incidents from happening in the first place.

    I predict absolutely no unforeseen disasters resembling a scene from ROBOCOP resulting from this.

    Obviously, the robot jailers will be controlled by aliens who live in the dreamworld.

    Obviously.

    Nice synchronicity here between corporate-run prisons, the Corporate-Congressional-Financial-Military Complex, the pharmaceutical industry and the War on Drugs, the Occupy movement, to name just a few …

       i love how sneaked ‘occupy’ in that list, as if economic justice is not inherently opposed to the military industrial complex (hint it IS).

    “detects anomalies in advance” when prisoners do reflect on the behaviour that landed them there and start to have this spiritual that’s a sign of being too happy and may lead to descend XD

    I love how they publish this shit and expect us all to bow down and worship the methods of our enslavement.

    Prithee tell: what’s the fucking difference?

    • Jin The Ninja

      the only difference i can see, is  ‘protecting’ prisoners from suicide, which really means, drugging distressed people beyond recognition, and a type of pre-crime analysis that would deny prisoners their already limited rights.
