BRIEF: RoboCop as Detroit's emergency financial manager? 'Detroit (Blank) City' strikes again
Feb 25, 2013 (Detroit Free Press - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
"Detroit (Blank) City" has struck again, this time with a video about RoboCop becoming Detroit's emergency financial manager.
In the latest offering from the online comedy project, a spokesman for the governor's office announces that Alex James Murphy, better known as RoboCop, has been appointed as the city's new EMF.
The robot/human police officer from the 1987 cult movie classic is described as being "very jazzed" about the assignment and having powers that include perfect aim and veto power over the Detroit City Council and Mayor Bing.
