Protected by Viper, stand back!



This story was first brought to my attention via The Jim Rome Show.

Since then it has gained massive viral popularity and become a legitimately funded private project that the city of Detroit is giving consideration.

Following a Twitter response from Mayor Dave Bing that Detroit had no plans to follow through with an idea to honor RoboCop with a statue, A groundswell of donations were made that have currently exceeded the pledge goal of $50,000 by more than ten grand.

The intention, to erect a seven foot tall RoboCop statue on private land somewhere within the city that played home to the Sci-Fi giant during the self titled movie in 1987.

With more than 30 days remaining in the projects funding stages it appears that the statue is a very real possibility - www.detroitneedsrobocop.com offers a platform for those interested in assisting.

As long as this idea stays private and does not affect tax-payer dollars I think it's fantastic!
