Mechanismo

I'm a little bit confused about it.  I really loved the Harvey storyline and I'm enjoying the new robots on the beat but I don't really know what their status is. Are they judges proper or just auxiliaries?  Has Dredd changed his mind about them completely?  Can they still outrank human judges?

I think they are proper Judges but only limited to certain areas. I do not believe that Dredd is fully behind the idea of them being on the street.

Yes. Hemade a comment a couple of weeks back that made it seem like he supported them, and hence changed his mind. Taken in context though, his comment was made to a perp, and I believe maintaining the appearance of a united Justice system is more important to him. And he wasn’t going to let a criminal know that he agrees.

Wouldn't be entirely out of character if he did - his final words in Full Mental Jacket are probably my favourite Dredd quote ever - but it makes sense all the same.
