"RoboCop" Statue to be Raised in Detroit

Fans of the "RoboCop" films have come through and pulled together $50,000.00 to erect a statue of the famed police officer somewhere in Detroit.

The funds were raised through Kickstarter.com, and while the mayor of Detroit declined on the idea, fans went ahead and raised the funds anyway. The statue was a response to a tweet made by the Mayor, Dave Bing, to get ideas going on how to revitalize the city.

The money collected is enough to raise an eight foot tall iron statue. There's no word yet on where or when the statue will be placed.
