Robocop Patrolling Trains in Japan

Japanese police collaborated with West Japan Railway Company and developed the Robocop — a man posing as a cyborg crime-fighter.

In an unusual move, the Japanese police have recruited a ‘Robocop’ on public trains to protect women commuters from perverts.

The Osaka Police Department has enlisted a robot to stop the perverts threatening women.

“Robocop is a hammer of justice to molesters threatening women,” the police said on its official site.

Interestingly, the Robocop has the right to arrest citizens who are found breaking the laws.

The robot is also assigned the duty of warning travellers not to leave their belongings and luggage in the train carriages, the Mirror reported.

In addition, it will caution drivers not to leave possessions on view in cars.

All Aboard! The morning train along with a customary push and shove.

This video never gets old. It’s amazing that anyone would want to go to work this badly or in this way every morning. I would definitely find another station, ride a bike to another one, or move if this was my everyday commute. Maybe they will make double-decker trains one day.
