US cop body cam maker says it won't ship face-recog tech in its kit? Due to ethics? Did we slip into a parallel universe?

"Ethical" technology

I often wonder if eventually, technological advances make detection of any criminal activity possible, and therefore zero tolerance to crime becomes a potential reality, whether at that point, the concept of "free society" becomes moot and we effectively end up in a dictatorship run by those with the power of enforcement. No different to non-free societies today.

Is that really what we want?

Is it that resistance really is futile and the future is actually Borg?
