I’ll admit it. Watching this little autonomous arsehole just toddle on through this crime scene giving no fucks about anything other than delivering food is kind of funny to a point.

They cordon off crime scenes so that precisely this sort of thing doesn’t happen. My god, the potential for contamination and destroyed evidence. As these things become more common, how many acquittals, overturned or unjust convictions and civil suits are we going to be in for? The justice system is bogged down and screwy enough as it is. Technology complicating cases because it can’t do its job properly is the last thing it needs.
