Los Angeles police ban facial recognition software and launch review after officers accused of unauthorized use

They're missing a trick here...

Just point a "machine learning" algorithm at your database of criminal mugshots and, Hey Presto!, you've got a black box that can tell whether any face is likely to belong to someone who will commit a crime at some point in their lives, Minority Report style.

Link that up to CCTV & Facial Recognition systems, and the cops can wander over to your location & dispense some on-the-spot justice for the crime of having the right (wrong?) face.
