    Thi is a real catch-22.

    If an 81-year-old dude can download plans to build a suicide robot and build it successfully so that it actually kills him, he probably didn't need to be hounded by his family to move into a rest home.

    Did the robot look like this? Might just be a prototype...

    They should charge the robot with murder ...

    I bet the family feels awful right now - or relieved that he didn't turn the machine on them.

    I bet the robot had a really difficult upbringing. He really shouldn't be blamed here. Society is at fault for not giving this robot a chance to go to school and have a family of his own.

    You send suicide robot to prison and he just comes out a bigger, stronger suicide robot with tats.

    At least the man spent a lot of time researching it. Other people just jump off bridges or buildings.

    With a little encouragement, he could get out on good behavior and maybe get a job as a washing machine.
