James Cameron on why T-1000 was a cop
From a 2010 book “The Futurist: The Life and Films of James Cameron” by Rebecca Keegan:
'"The Terminator films are not really about the human race getting killed of by future machines. They’re about us losing touch with our own humanity and becoming machines, which allows us to kill and brutalize each other,” he says. “Cops think all non-cops as less than they are, stupid, weak, and evil. They dehumanize the people they are sworn to protect and desensitize themselves in order to do that job.”'
