Joe Cox (portrayed by Jesse Goins) is a loud-mouthed, arrogant and overall despicable excuse for a human being. As a member of Clarence Boddicker's gang in Robocop, he takes a sadistic pleasure from the wanton death and destruction he and his fellow criminals inflict upon Detroit and its citizens. He also partakes in the murder of Officer Alex Murphy, laughing out loud as he and the rest of the gang empty their shotguns into the cornered cop. He recieves his well-earned comeuppance near the end of the film as he is the first of Clarence's cronies to die during the final showdown at the steel mill. Robocop unloads a three-round burst into Joe and leaves him to die as he takes on the rest of the gang.
