Robot Sent Into John Hopkins Tragedy First
When an irate gunman struck John Hopkins last week, it was a robot that made sure the coast was clear. Paul Warren Pardus had been tending his mother at home until she was taken to the East Baltimore Campus for treatment. While snipers surrounded the building, part of the campus was put in lock down while other sections were evacuated.
When the bot was finally sent in, (which was probably similar to others owned by police departments like the one shown,) it was determined that the pair had probably been deceased soon after Pardus had shot Dr. David B. Cohen. It is a comfort to know that robots are depended upon for such a depressing chore to avoid extra violence.
