Authorities Have Gathered 120 Million Facial Photos, Using Them More and More Broadly
#1
http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/t...story.html

The faces of more than 120 million people are in searchable photo databases that state officials assembled to prevent driver’s-license fraud but that increasingly are used by police to identify suspects, accomplices and even innocent bystanders in a wide range of criminal investigations.

The facial databases have grown rapidly in recent years and generally operate with few legal safeguards beyond the requirement that searches are conducted for “law enforcement purposes.” Amid rising concern about the National Security Agency’s high-tech surveillance aimed at foreigners, it is these state-level facial-recognition programs that more typically involve American citizens.

I'm good with it. No point being on the "list" if no one recognizes me.

As long as they don't use them to find undocumented immigrants, infringe on the religious liberty of those who follow Islam, single out homosexuals, profile blacks and Hispanics, disturb the rights of women, and ignore public officials and the hollywood elite...what harm can come from it?

10 years ago they were telling us not to smile in these photos. I wonder if that is now going to be used against us in some sort of profiling system.

Your people are too plain to be recognised anyway.

Asians are essentially white in today's culture. Even minorities such as blacks and Hispanics don't really consider them minorities--they're the "model minority".

I meant to quote the "different disguises " post..... must be a bug in this new Tap talk beta I have been using. What a way to ruin what would have been a GOOD joke!
