Police use of facial recognition is legal, rules UK court

In a ruling Wednesday, judges decided that facial recognition can be legally used by police forces in the UK. Two leading judges dismissed the case brought by human rights campaign group Liberty on behalf of Ed Bridges, a Cardiff resident whose face was scanned by South Wales Police during a trial of facial recognition. Police say the technology is needed to combat serious crimes.

Just try and film a cop in a public place and see how fast they make an excuse to arrest you

If they actually showed a decrease in crime from all these cameras then I might be on board. But all they seem to do is arrest people for posting rap lyrics on Facebook while knife crime sky rockets.
