Detroit Mayor: I Won't Erect RoboCop

2/8/2011 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

He's the greatest icon ever to hail from Detroit -- but RoboCop will never occupy an immortal place in Motor City ... so long as Motown's party-pooper Mayor Dave Bing has anything to say about it.

Meanwhile, Philly gets a "Rocky" statue. No fair.

They never answered the question if Robo had his original junk or a telescoping super unit.

Philly didn't want that Rocky statue.Satllone donated it to them and the city spent years trying figure out what to do with it.

They don't need a statue. They need the real thing as rough as Detroit is. Better idea just fire bomb Detroit and let's just start all over.

Why not erect statues of detroit natives Insane Clown Posse? This would encourage public urination in only one location.

When people say ignorant comments about Detroit I always wonder if any of those people have ever visited the area? If you haven't don't make a comment. If you have, you should be ashamed. Bomb Detroit and start over? Ignorant and disgraceful. Come here and say that to a native, see what happens.

If any Robot/Cyborg should get their own statue, it should be R2-D2!

General Motors already created an actual Robonaut, coincidentally named, R2. I'm surprised George Lucas hasn't filed a lawsuit for copyright infringement!

So, Robocop will have to take a number and line up behind R2-D2, C-3PO, and that crazy bitch, Dot Matrix, from Spaceballs!
