Facial Recognition Software Moves From Overseas Wars to Local Police

WEB Notes: This is now mainstream and take a look around you. There are cameras everywhere. A top the stop lights around stores and in stores. We put our-self and our families on facebook and auto tag our faces so they are recognized in ever other photo we appear in. The technology has been around for awhile now and is amazing, but it can also be used for devious purposes as well. Since we do this to ourselves I often wonder why people feel like their privacy is invaded when an article like this comes out.

With respect to this article they point out they will only use this technology for drug dealers and the like, so you ‘crazy Constitutionalists‘ will be just fine.
