California lawmakers move to block facial recogntion in police body cameras

California State Assembly on Thursday passed AB 1215. The bill imposes a three-year moratorium on the use of facial recognition technology in law enforcement body cameras. Privacy and civil liberties advocates praised the move. The legislation now heads to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk.

I kinda agree but at the same time I don't. For one part the criminals will be less incentivised to commit crime, but at he same time the people will become more scared of the government.

Not sure if it isn't happening already, but the show 'Person of Interest" pretty much called all this so called privacy stuff into question.

🤡🌎 Shoul'n't the cops know right away who they are dealing with?

The police already think everybody they see is a criminal. Some obviously are translating that into an opportunity to shoot someone. Facial recognition is not even close to being ready for live use.

Will California make it a crime to wear a mask in public? Hint: No. Antifa depends on it.

I guess it's good to wait for the technology to be better before using it, but other than that, I don't mind face recognition
