Armed Machines? Really...?

This story really caught my attention. I mean, when machines start taking guns away from the law, what is going on?

This sure does bring on thoughts of Terminator type MRI machines, ya know?

Cop's Gun Stuck In MRI Machine In Carol Stream
Officer was investigating an overnight burglary
Friday, Feb 8, 2013

Police on Friday were investigating what they called a bizarre incident following an overnight burglary at a Carol Stream doctor's office.

An officer responding to the burglary walked into an MRI room at the office on the 600 block of East St. Charles Road Friday morning, the building's owner said. The MRI machine's magnetism pulled away the officer's gun, which became stuck in the machine. Because there is no way to turn off the magnetism, the gun remained in place and no one was allowed inside the building.

Carol Stream police said no injuries were reported, and the MRI manufacturer has been called to assist, the building owner said.

Police said the burglary also is under investigation.


Sorry, but the idea of having the machines of the world suddenly arming themselves just strikes me as funny! I wonder if the arms confiscation plans include MRI machines?

Coffee out on the patio today! OK with you?

Hey Gorges...
Guess they need to start teaching "machine control" at the police academy!

Thanks for coming over today!

Couldn't they just pull the plug on the machine??? Duh...
Can't make it for coffee today - gotta shovel!

If they had tried to unplug the machine maybe the magnetism would have stopped. Some people just don't think. Funny story Mr. Hermit!

That is funny. Hope they get the gun out of there. haha

Coffee on your patio sounds better than coffee on my porch. Its a cold wet 38 degrees here. About 4 miles south of here its snowing.
