Default Driver's License Pictures Being Uploaded To Facial Recognition Used By FBI & ICE

Driver's License Pictures Being Uploaded To Facial Recognition Used By FBI & ICE

Excerpt: Over the weekend, the U.S. took another step in the slow crawl toward normalizing databases and hidden searches as a fact of urban life. A new report from Georgetown Law’s Center on Privacy and Technology revealed that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials requested access to DMV databases in Utah, Washington State, and Vermont, with the intention of using facial-recognition technology to scan drivers’ photos and match them against criminal and residency databases without their knowledge.

Three years ago, the center revealed that nearly half of all U.S. adults are already in the FBI’s facial-recognition database, which is largely sourced from DMV photos.

Surprised? You shouldn't be. There are already cameras everywhere, from highways, streets, public buildings, outside stores and inside stores.

People are watched all the time. If everyone is watched then why not take it to the next step... identify everyone? That is the new step. Facial recognition to see where you are at any given moment.

don't be surprised if in the future all cameras from inside stores to highways are somehow linked into one super-surveillance server where people will be identified anywhere at anytime.

That's your tax dollars at work.

So do you prefer perfect surveillance and safety over freedom and sometimes not being perfectly safe?
