Something wrong with this picture. Despite the mayor of San Fransisco just passing away, I don't expect much will change here and what does it say of a populace and society that one of our major cities has come to using high tech robots to go around patrolling for homeless citizens living on the streets, the most needy among us, spending money that could have been used to help these people, to drive them away to some unseen and forgotten place where they can be ignored and left to die, while spending yet more money and vast resources and efforts to make EVERY EFFORT to invite, attract, bring in, provide for and protect ILLEGAL ALIENS breaking the law who don't even belong here??? The kicker is, they don't even have the resources to help and provide for the people they already have, most of which are likely actual citizens who probably at one time even paid taxes, while they go out trying to bring yet more people in. Robots are being used to deter homeless people from setting up camp in San Francisco Robot security guard freaks out homeless people ... and neighbors Animal shelter faces backlash after using robot to scare off homeless people Why don't these people invest their efforts in trying to improve the human condition? They have more concern for the cats and dogs than they do for the people among them. Am I wrong then to have little sympathy for the people of Bel Air and elsewhere in California for losing their home(s) to fire in areas prone to burn? One couple has lost TWO homes in two months to two fires in California! Couple loses two homes in two months to California wildfires - CNN I feel for their plight that while some cannot afford food, a roof or shelter and are being chased away by autonomous machines, these people have the luxury to have TWO homes (in California at least), that they had to lose, and will probably recover just fine anyway. Their biggest worry? Food? Cold? Barking dogs? Nope. Whether their insurance will cover both loses. Weep. Weep.
