Kinney is obliterated as ED-209 malfunctions and shoots him. It's extremely bloody and graphic.

Murphy's death is very graphic. His hand is shot off point blank and he is shot many times by Boddicker and his gang before Boddicker shoots him point blank in the head.

Emil crashes into a vat of toxic liquid. He emerges out of it with his body already corroding. His skin is seen melting off of him. He staggers around in anguish until Boddicker runs into him with a car and his body splatters all over the windshield.

Boddicker is stabbed in the neck by RoboCop and blood gushes from his wound as he dies.

A man's hand, and then his arm are graphically blown off by a shotgun. Said scene is reduced in the theatrical cut a decent amount, but the director's cut shows it in full detail.

A cop is brutalized by having his hand, and then arm blown off, before having his body shot into a mess, while screaming. He is finally finished off with a gory headshot as he moans in agony. The theatrical cut obscures some of the worst parts, but it is still quite graphic. Later in the film a man is shot in the leg four times as a form of torture by the villain, but this is much less graphic than the first example.

A man is repeatedly shot as he screams in agony and is then finished off with a graphic headshot. Another scene involves a man who falls into acid. You see his skin starting to melt, and then a man accidentally liquefies him with his car.

Do robots count? If so, I can count the ED-209 that Robocop blows up with a military grade weapon.

The opening shot of the movie is of the cityscape and there is a lake.

The final confrontation between RoboCop and Boddicker is in a shallow body of water.

On the surface, the film appears to be pro-cop propaganda, and some viewers will likely interpret it this way, but the message of the film is very anti-capitalist and rather ambivalent towards law enforcement. They are portrayed as pawns of a big corporation, which culminates when the corporation literally buys the police force and uses their money to create a robot police officer, stripping the main character of his humanity to serve the needs of a corporation.
