    I wonder if hitting/damaging one of these mechano-puppies would be considered “assault on a police officer” like it is with protein-puppies.

    I’m thinking trenches for the low-tech, directed EMP for the high tech. In between Molotov cocktails, thermite – maybe mixed with playdough and shot with a marshmallow gun. Just off the top of my head. Oh yeah, I wonder how they’d like battery acid?
