-RoboCop (1987): In the near future, Detroit, Michigan is on the verge of collapse due to financial ruin and unchecked crime.
The mega-corporation Omni Consumer Products (OCP) enters into a contract with the city to run the police force utilizing Project "RoboCop."
-The city of Detroit filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy on July 18, 2013 estimated to be $18–20 billion in debt.
Given the social-economic conditions that have plagued Detroit (school closings, demoralizing unemployment, suspending emergency services due to lack of funds),
I'm sure the citizens would patiently wait for their corrupt officials to graciously smooth everything… without inciting revolt… without collateral damages…
-RoboCop (2014 film): A reboot has been confirmed depicting the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp who specializes in drone warfare and crime fighting technology.
Please note, the reboot will has been rated PG-13, more than likely to make the film more accessible for the masses to become spell-bound & entertained, to obtain a glimpse into the very "near future" for art tends to intimidate real life.
Starring Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and (you guessed it...) Samuel L. Jackson .
-E.M. Kadarr Prediction:
Google will secure a contract with Detroit, outfit Cops with Google Glasses and other drone toys.
Thus domesticating the "War on Terror" franchise by stimulating the American economy and job-creation, capitalizing on purposeful/strategic disparity between citizens.
...A stark contrast of presented opportunity, turning an economic frown upside-down.
Of course, militarized force is justified against the rising threat of inland terrorists/poor people, one way for trigger-happy "patriots" to reconstruct the Crusades...
I wonder if this was God's plan to smite those pesky heathens and thieves (the unemployed & homeless) bound by the purposeful constructions of Conflict Theory.
