RoboCop Was Not an Instruction Manual 

This is a very, very bad idea.

Citizen is a smartphone app which enables people to receive real-time updates about crimes and other incidents. Now, it seems the company is considering a plan to “deploy private security workers to the scene of disturbances at the request of app users”. I see absolutely no way creating a private police force can go wrong.

A still from the movie Robocop, a satirical look at a dystopian world with private police forces.
