We’ve got a volunteer. The body is on the way.

Mayor: All of Detroit has a cancer. That cancer is crime.

CEO: “Ask you know we’ve entered into a contract with the city to run law enforcement.”

We’ve got the best of both worlds: on board computer assisted memory, and a lifetime of on the street law enforcement programming.

Policewoman: Hey Louis, it’s Super Cop.
Policeman: This guy is really good.
Policewoman: He’s not a guy; he’s a machine.
Policeman: What are they going to do, replace us?

Louis: Murphy, it’s you.
Engineer: Go get um, boy.

Robocop: “You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to an attorney. Anything you say may be used against you. Your move creep.

The future of law enforcement: Robocop.
