    Recently, in an interview on CNN, the mayor of Detroit was asked if he would erect a statue of Robocop in Detroit? He responded by saying no. The city had more important needs. Well, it seems that someone started a fund raising effort as a joke on the internet. The local media picked it up as a running joke. The site went viral. And the rest, as they say, is history.


    DETROIT ? It looks like a RoboCop statue may be erected in Detroit after all.
    Just six days after an online fundraising campaign began, a loosely organized group of Detroiters has raised more than $50,000 to build a statue to pay homage to the 1987 film.
    The group met its goal following a $25,000 matching gift Tuesday evening from a company called Omni Consumer Products.
    The group is using Kickstarter.com, a "crowd-raising" website that challenges visitors to help meet a short-term goal.


    Thus proving that the economy may not be that bad. Because some people have money they dont know what to do with.

    lmao
