Peter Weller’s ‘Robocop’ said those words to a warehouse full of criminals. They laughed. Then got shot full of holes. Lots of ‘em. Kinda how it works when the guy shooting you has a fully automatic handgun and lazer targeting embedded in his skull. He could probably have taken the naughty bits off a gnat at 100 yards just for sport while he was at it.
Imagine being a kid and having skills like that? The school bully that kept taking your lunch money? Shoot at his feet to make him break it down like a college girl in a hip hop dance class.
Parents get out of line? Trouble is comin’ indeed. Brrrraap! Brrrrap! I said CHOCOLATE milk, fools!
Girl you’re crushing on doesn’t like the flowers you offer her? Cool. She’s not getting any. From anyone. For the next six blocks. Start with the sunflowers and work your way through the lilacs and daffodils. Brrrrrap! Brrrrrap!
Old Man Carter makin’ a stink about stepping on his lawn? Let’s give him somethin’ else to worry about. Brrrrap! Brrrrrap! There you go Old Man Carter. Your windows have been bullet-hole Air-conditioned for free. Happy Winter.
Skoots the local Rottweiler using that huge head and big bark to chase you home? Brrrrap! Brrrrrap! Run along Skoots. Grab your stump of a tail while you’re at it and pray the vet can sew it back on.
A couple of enterprising parents made this fantasy a reality (minus the automatic weaponry and violent rage) for a boy who had but one dream: to be Robocop for Halloween. One robot costume, a little ingenuity and a camera later they did just that.
