Robocop? Las Vegas Apartment Complex Deploys Human-Sized Robot To Fight Crime

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

It was inevitable that security robots would one-day patrol low-income neighborhoods around the clock to ensure everyone was abiding by the rules. This dystopic future is becoming a reality for one apartment complex in Las Vegas.

Robotics maker Knightscope deployed a human-sized autonomous robot to a noisy northeast Las Vegas Valley apartment, said the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Westy” has been patrolling Liberty Village Apartments near Craig Road and Lamb Boulevard since October 2020.

“It’s been very useful in several ways,” said complex manager Carmen Batiz.

“It can advise people when they are out past the 10 p.m. curfew, and the four video cameras tend to make people avoid it. When we have vandalism reports, we can go through the video and get a time frame of when it happened. It has a button so people can get human help quick in an emergency.

“People don’t want to get caught on the cameras so they will avoid it,” Batiz said.

Liberty Village Apartments was one of the top three northeast Las Vegas residential living areas for 911 calls. Many of the folks are working-poor Americans, situated in an area known for crime and vandalism.

Westy has had some success over the last several months as 911 calls have dropped and crime is lower. Batiz said, “We have eight other properties, and we’re going to bring on more robots, and even the Wynn had people come check it out.”

“Every resident has the right to live in a crime-free, safe and clean environment, and Westy helps contribute to that,” said Batiz.

More or less, private companies who manage residential multi-family complexes are resorting to automation and artificial intelligence to deter violence, theft, and murders as the post-pandemic world become a more dangerous place.

Changes are coming to metro areas as well. The working-poor will feel more oppressed as big brother will continue to monitor their every move through innovative ways such as human-sized autonomous robots.

It’s only a matter of time before local governments and municipalities, and even state governments employ fleets of human-sized autonomous robots to maintain law and order.

We should remind readers NYPD’s Boston Dynamics robot dog for ground surveillance of low-income neighborhoods is already underway…

What’s next is the unveiling of predictive policing via artificial intelligence that will monitor low-income neighborhoods if there’s a potential flare-up in a crime or social disobedience. Maybe by that time, the Federal Reserve could instantly reload people’s bank accounts in those troubled areas with Fedcoin (digital US dollars) to keep the impoverished at bay.

One Sarmat missile and Robocop is gone. Together with the apartments complex and NYPD.

That thing doesn’t look like a Robocop….that is friggin R2-D2…….Can I mount it with a Nuclear Warhead?

Now this is a ROBOCOP:


It works.
Hi missed all the others though…

This one is a Failure too…too friendly…



Can it vibrate?
It looks like giant dildo, suitable for local dogs to take pee.
In Africa they’d dismantle it in 10 minutes and sell it as spare parts..

These low income kids are going to have a blast stripping them down for parts to sell on ebay. When these robots start to disappear from the streets, the next model will probably be armed with tazers.

People put too much faith in this kind of technology to give them the illusion of safety. If the robots become established they will be snitching on every little misdemeanor caught by its cameras and microphones, with all the evidence sent to headquaters via 5G. If there is face recognition fitted, It could be a nice little earner.

“NEUTRALIZING” Their MULTIMILLION-DOLLAR SHIT can easily be Done for a couple of BUCKS…

There isn’t a need to set these things on fire. They rely on cooling apparatus to operate properly. No cooling, no problem.

The every little misdemeanor you speak of represents the quality of life that civilization is supposed to provide. In the USA, litter is building up in stream beds and along roadways in volumes that makes it look apocalyptic. Some of the volumes are so dense it has to now be pushing soil areas into toxicity. Noise from and reckless operation of vehicles is also a strong trendline. I can’t read to my daughter at 9pm at night without listening to some outrageously loud urban deep beat, with lyrics something like “I fuc dat bi$ch!!” It’s a breakdown in civilization and the texting while driving thing is killing bicyclists, including several I’ve ridden with. I myself have had two close calls. There are laws against all these behaviors but police enforcement is so rare to be non-existent. Please, give me robots that deter the activity. Drones fighting littering, streetbots raising barriers for offending vehicles and drivers and summoning Police. Anything to restore law and order and quality of life for anyone else in society just wanting to enjoy life in peace.

You’re making an unusual amount of sense this morning. You bump your head, or something ?


Yup, my first thought was “some teens are gonna kick that thing over and smash it with bats”. As long as you’re wearing a mask and glasses it’s unlikely they could identify you.

It’s the same corrupt logic that made the MIC great, squandering taxpayers’ money to buy useless bullshit, wait for someone to figure out how to shut it down and spread the word.

Well, they thought about using a robot to reduce the level of crime. Wow! They should have thought of providing conditions for reducing/eliminating crime but hey, this is not what the “masters” want!


Robocrap. Walking trash bin.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
