Robocop (1987) begins with the officer Alex Murphy being gunned down and taken to the ER. The doctors fail to revive him. The answer to another question quotes this portion of the script:
Surgeon #1 - Ok, let's shock him to flatline, then quit.
[They shock him]
Surgeon #2 - No pulse!
Surgeon #1 - I'm calling it [medical slang for declaring the time of death].
The line “shock him to flatline, then quit” sounds awful like the first doctor wants Murphy to flatline so that he can be declared cardiovascularly dead (so that they can harvest his brain).
Does Murph have a medical malpractice or first degree murder case against Surgeon #1?
