Re: facial recognition
> Surely when you are "read your rights" that includes the reason for the arrest?
There was an eyewitness, who, it turns out, incorrectly identified him. The eyewitness also provided a video. The video was fed into some crap AI software that erroneously confirmed the eyewitness' mistaken identification.
That's the line the DPD will use to justify their actions. They may have even obtained an arrest warrant based on the eyewitness' testimony plus the facial recognition software confirmation.
Is this OK? No.
Should this facial recognition piece of garbage software be banned from police use? Yes.
Should the manufacturer of the facial recognition software be held liable for violating this person's civil rights? Yes.
Should the manufacturer of the facial recognition software be held liable for misrepresenting the capabilities of their software to a law enforcement agency? Yes.
Should there be a national standard for the use of facial recognition software by police? Definitely Yes.
Will any of this happen? Doubtful.
