Comment When killer robots are outlawed (Score 1) 296 296

When killer robots are outlawed, only outlaws will have killer robots.

But seriously,
a) There is no way to really stop this, it's just a combination of standard hardware and some programming
b) While drones might allow for lower collateral damage (because the drone won't be afraid of death), a drone also will not object to illegal or immoral orders.

Here's how it works:
Court decrees Facebook doesn't have standing to challenge the warrant, because even though they're going through Facebook's stuff the warrant is for a specific person.
Court decrees the person who was targeted by the search warrant doesn't have standing to challenge the warrant, because they can't prove that they were even served the warrant because Facebook was also given a gag order.

I think $10000 is probably a good price. A lot of drug dealers have that much money, and they are able to kill you if you are lying to them. You can agree to stay captive in their underground lair until they get their winnings.

They're also able to kill you if you weren't lying to them.

The wages of sin are unreported.
