... just kidding... but it's not so farfetched that someone would suggest it to take human error out of the equation.

The new justice system could turn into a self professed prophecy of robot domination of the human race.
But Humans make the robots, so there is bound to be a glitch in the sytem that would be caused by human error. Plus I don't think it's possible to add every possible variance of a situation into the mind of a robot. At least not anytime soon.
