This is a bit disturbing, since, in my CIA days I was involved in counternarcotics. They already have the “plata o plomo” (silver or lead) method to recruit or corrupt anyone in their way.

But the cartels using robots and drones would bring this to a new level. They will be able slaughter anyone, efficiently and brutally, without being anywhere close, and with almost no probably if being caught.

But I’m not in favor of banning this. Banning weapons just means that the bad guys have it and I don’t.

Slaughterbots’ are a step away from your neighborhood — and we need a ban
