Yeah, I want to see a person behind the badge, not some dumb robot who can feel for the victims or people in general! I want to be a police officer when I grow up NO robot will take my job. I will not let that happen!

A computer has the capacity to think thousands of times faster than a human. When AI and robotics reach the level of performing the job... People can't compete. Almost perfect job performance...or a human... You choose. Computers aren't stressed out, they have no bias... They are, in every way capable of being better at the job...

When on a traffic stop or responding to a domestic dispute or whatever, people want to see a real human being, not some dumb robot that has no emotion. Us humans want the ability to communicate with each other not some robot.
