a robot removes tape from a man's mouth

Soldier tried fake mouth-bomb in heist” [via Zach Beane]:

A robot was used to check the mouth of Jeffry Leon Lewis Jr. after the Army sergeant presented a note at a Tucson bank saying he had a bomb in his mouth. Lewis was handcuffed to to a fence during the procedure. No explosive device was found.

Police used the robot to pull duct tape off the robber's mouth. I bet you thought you'd have to wait until at least the 22nd century to read a sentence like the preceding one.

I know several "selected" politicians ( in Washington, D.C.) who require duct tape permanently over their mouths. These same politicians also require life sentences for embezzling U.S. federal funds. .

That's an odd comment, Mr. Anonymous. Here's a better one:

When are they going to make the robot that applies duct tape to mouths? If you telemetrically do this to someone, then you telemetrically dildo them, are you a rapist?

I remember seeing a video of a pizza delivery guy having his head blown off after the guys that he was making a delivery to lock a bomb around his neck. The plan was that he supposed to rob a bank and they'd take it off, but clearly it didn't work out for either party. Scary stuff.
