Detroit’s Mayor Says No To RoboCop Statue

Detroit’s Mayor Says No To <i>RoboCop</i> Statue

Sad days for RoboCop fans. Even after Eminem’s heartfelt appeal for the love of Detroit during Sunday’s Super Bowl XLV, the order-restoring super-cop is getting no love from the real-world city’s government.

Mayor Dave Bing turned to the Internet for suggestions on repairing the fallen-on-hard-times city’s image, which apparently elicited the rather genius suggestion of erecting a statue to honor RoboCop, because Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi classic was set there. The mayor tweeted back with a disheartening reply: “There are not any plans to erect a statue to Robocop. Thank you for the suggestion.”

Come on, your honor! RoboCop is a symbol of peace and order! The very sight of him strikes fear into the hearts of criminals! I say you shouldn’t just erect a statue, you should go full-bore and put up a monument that qualifies as the largest free-standing structure in the city! Who is going to loot some poor sap’s house when RoboCop is just standing there, off in the distance, surrounded by a ring of lights and watching your every move.
