It can also, as evidenced by events that unfolded Friday on the shoulder of westbound I-94 near 19th St., approach two potentially dangerous suspects holed up in an SUV, transmit instructions from a hostage negotiator sitting safely in a nearby truck, and punch out the rear window of the suspects' stolen car.
