Potentially, yes. It also has the potential of being internally inconsistent. If there are robot cops, does that mean the military has been roboticized? What about the National Guard and forest rangers and Secret Service? What about civilian applications, like construction and ice road truckers and wicked tuna fishermen? How many people have they put out of work? What is the public opinion? Are there restrictive laws? Is "robot marriage" a political issue? Common availability of humaniform robots would change the world drastically-- I wonder if a day-after-tomorrow "buddy cop" show would deal with all that. If so, then, yeah, could be really good.
