Ferguson riots: we need riot control robots!

We need riot control robots to help police.  We need the ability to augment police when and where a riot might occur. Also there is the untapped reality that robots are unnerving to rioters.

The facts are people will take the advantage to loot and burn no matter what the outcome.  There was going to be looting and mayhem.  The police can't hold a perimeter and chase down looters. 

So a robot that can be used to keep the perimeter will allow more police to move out and disperse a crowd. No one will want to fight a robot. The police will feel safer and therefore they will be less likely to react with unmeasured violence.  They can always regroup at the robots.
