A Roomba for wrongdoing

When Portland got all into defunding its police – a lot of good that's done – the City Council hilariously resolved to hire two dozen park rangers instead. Alas, the new rangers didn't do anything to stop the latest fatal shooting from going down the other night in a city park.

Here's something they're trying out in L.A.: Parks there are being patrolled by robots with 360-degree cameras. The cops get to see what's happening without leaving their comfy chairs. They love that.

Should Portland spend some of its millions in newly found money on some of these babies? Heck, at this point anything would be worth a try in our lawless city. We now have all the big city problems but none of the big city benefits.

The best part: no robocop union.
