RoboCop prepares to throw first pitch to Detroit Tigers’ Rajai Davis to celebrate the Blu-ray & DVD release of RoboCop from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment at the Detroit Tigers vs. Toronto Blue Jays baseball game on June 3, 2014 at Comerica Park in Detroit.

DETROIT -- The half-human, half-cyborg heroic RoboCop is still caught in the middle of two acronyms.

Killed in the line of duty, police officer Alex Murphy was reborn -- and rebooted -- by OCP (Omni Consumer Products) to fight CCP (Crime, Corruption and Politics) in Detroit, the Motor City that has now been dubbed the 'Carjack City' due to the growing number of motorists having their cars taken, as they fear getting out of their vehicles to stop for gas.

Dead or alive, these carjackers are coming with RoboCop, whose only program is justice.

Still, Detroit finally gives him the long-overdue recognition with 'RoboCop Day', which not only includes Robo throwing the first pitch at Comerica Park before the start of the 7:05 pm game between the Tigers and the Toronto Blue Jays, but also the statue that has been 27 years in the making.

This event coincides with the DVD and Blu-Ray release of the 2014 upgrade of the 1987 blockbuster with Joel Kinnaman succeeding Peter Weller in the role that lasted two sequels, a television series, a miniseries, and comic books.

RoboCop was there to help our struggling Detroit Police Department clean up the streets of our economically and financially-challenged, and morally depraved city by following three basic principles: serve the public trust, protect the innocent, and uphold the law.

In other words, RoboCop is the metallic combination of the Lone Ranger and the Terminator.

A permanent location for the RoboCop statue will be announced sometime in the future. Stay tuned!
