And the organisers are blameless (according to them).

The boy didn't use it properly. (blame the victim)

We only hired the bot, so not our fault. (blame the bot maker)

I wonder if they claim the same if they run over a pedestrian in a hired car? Pedestrian shouldn't be on the footpath, and not my car, so it's not on me.

I have some bots in my lair. There is no way I let the minions near them when they are in operation. The blood, flesh and bones make a mess and can break the machines. So keep well away.

I highly recommend the science fiction novelette With Folded Hands by Jack Williamson (first published in the July 1947 issue of Astounding Science Fiction).

Instead of the "laws of robotics," the Prime Directive for the Humanoids was "To Serve and Obey, and Guard Men from Harm."
