Legitimate Knightscope Robot Use Case? “Significant Decrease” In Graffiti, Car Break-Ins And The Number Of Encampments Around Their Parking Lot

Knightscope robots have started to be used at a San Francisco animal shelter, and the shelter's spokesperson is claiming clear benefits:

“significant decrease” in graffiti, car break-ins and the number of encampments around their parking lot.

While most locations lack the crime and general craziness of San Francisco, for facilities with those types of issues, it could be useful, more so than just fixed cameras.

On the other hand, I am curious how long one until one of the locals attacks the robot, given its effective intrusion into their neighborhood.

Finally, a video from a person passing by that was not too happy about the robot:

What do you think? Upside for Knightscope?
