On the plus side, it wasn't stolen and found in a scrapyard on Staten Island.

Let's see...the purchase price plus the operating costs adds up to $320 a day for the time it was in service. I suppose that given how governments usually spend money, this was something of a bargain.

But the real question is...how did this thing go for four months without being stolen?

It got a better deal running an umbrella and sunglasses stand by Penn Station.

@Clankie - good one

Probably can make more money posing as a knockoff Iron Man for Times Square tourists.

NYPD couldn't afford the donuts.

The AI robot was dumber than the subway cops.

That thing really needs googly eyes.
