Facial recognition use banned in some places but used widely elsewhere

Some US cities have constrained facial recognition use while in others it is used widely for minor crimes. Only Portland, OR banned facial recognition from government and commercial use. Others have banned police use while New York has no limits and uses the technology for minor crimes. A NY judge allowed such information to be used in a shoplifting trial, but said that lawmakers should set limits

You cannot ban someone from harvesting your likeness while you are in public. I can photograph whoever and whatever I want for the most part, so I don't buy into the idea that your face and silhouette are somehow private objects when you are the sidewalk. I'm ok with facial recognition, it will soon be like that scene in minority report when Ton Cruise walks into the store after getting new eyeballs and the virtual display says "ah yes welcome Mr. Whatever!" Also if you are upset at facial recognition, did you know in America they harvest your fingerprints as well? And the FBI also purchases your DNA from third party places such as ancestry.com or 21andme, are you upset about those two things, also?
