8-inch Robot Brings Out Bomb Squad In Denver

We often joke that robots will one day take over the word (maybe Terminator-style) but some folks obviously think that it’s happening already. An 8-inch tall robot met its gruesome end on Wednesday night when the Denver Police Department Bomb Squad detonated it. This incident occurred when someone made a report to the police of a plastic toy robot cemented to the base of a pillar supporting a footbridge. The bomb squad was sent to examine the robot and since the squad couldn’t be sure whether the robot was safe, they detonated it to render it safe. The situation caused quite a bit of a traffic stir, and you can bet the folks stuck in traffic weren’t too happy about it. It’s a funny story, though the bad news is that it didn’t end well for the innocent robot, did it?
