Bing's office is still not convinced, but a spokeswoman said the city is studying how it could accept and display a gift RoboCop statue.
"We know there are a lot of people that care deeply about the issue, and we respect that," said Karen Dumas of Bing's office. "But I'm still not sure that RoboCop is the best message for the city of Detroit."
Paffendorf said the RoboCop statue could go somewhere downtown if the city approves, perhaps near the landmark fist statue honoring legendary boxer Joe Louis.
Jeff Paffendorf is one of the leaders of the statue project. Link
