Separated at birth?

Paul Conrad/The Aspen Times

Is it life imitating art, or vice versa? We couldn’t help notice the startling resemblance between RoboCop and real cop Rick Magnuson, the Aspen community safety officer who recently made an unsuccessful run for the sheriff’s job.

It’s true, Magnuson is well-known locally as a performance artist, but actor Peter Weller gets the credit for the role of Murphy (aka RoboCop) in the 1987 movie. Both officers take a hard line against drugs/crime.

Separated at birth? You decide.
