Detroiters Raise $$$ To Erect Robocop Statue

After suggesting the city erect a Robocop statue, Detroit mayor Dave Bing quickly shot the idea down, Tweeting (TWEETING?!) ""There are not any plans to erect a statue to Robocop. Thank you for your suggestion." What the -- and you guys elected this dongle?! But thanks to a grassroots Kickstarter campaign, Detroiters were able to raise the $50,000 necessary for a statue in less than a week with almost 2,000 financial supporters. Now how long before the new statue vandalized is anybody's guess, but I'd put my money on "as soon as I can afford a bus-ticket to Detroit". *spraypainting Joker face over Robocop's helmet* NOT SO TOUGH NOW, ARE YOU ROBO-POPO?! "Freeze, lawbreaker." Oh shit.
