Tlaib Goes Toe to Toe with Detroit Police Department over ‘Facial Recognition Bulls**t’
[BREITBART] Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) went toe to toe with the Detroit Police Department on Twitter Tuesday over the use of facial recognition technology, calling it “bulls**t.”

“@detroitpolice You should probably rethink this whole facial recognition bulls**t,” Tlaib tweeted Tuesday, linking to a Vice article detailing Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) exhaustive criminal justice reform plan, with an emphasis on his call to “ban the use of end facial recognition software for policing”:

#1 What's the feminine for punk?

Where the hell did this repulsive specimen come from? How did she get elected?

#2 Why is one of our nation's legislators using potty language and citing a gonzo-punk teenybopper tabloid as a reliable source for a national policy debate?

What a shitshow.

#4 If Detroit PD have any spine left, they should ask for a public apology now. Cite conduct unbecoming of a rep, and undue interference in law enforcement.

#5 There is no expectation of visual privacy when out in public. That's a long established legal principle. In many places it's against the law to wear a mask or bandanna when entering a bank or convenience store. Laws vary widely across the land on who can record whom where and when with or without consent of both parties.

#7 So tired of hearing about this bitch.

The funny thing is - I think she's been the quietest of the AOC / Omar / Tlaib bunch until a few weeks ago and she's been batshit bonkers ever since. She's making up for lost time.

#9 Facial recognition technology (developed by the Big Tech companies) and the widespread filming of everything that happens in public by police departments is not a good thing. That being said, Tlaib is also a horrible person, and is making an issue out of this because she hates the police, not because she believes in personal privacy.

#10 But why, Vernal ? That is not surveillance as I see it. It's just a daily record of what happened where, and makes investigations independent of easily compromised witnesses. Technology makes it feasible and the state uses it.

#11 The interesting issue is no expectation of privacy in public with the expectation that absent cause, every moment of your public life is permanently recorded. Literally every public act can be recalled and examined, demanding a blameless life, not just a legal one. Who can withstand that level of scrutiny and not feel less than free?

#12 Carry a cellphone and you already have lost that privacy... If there are hidden apps that allow a third party to turn on the microphone (an/or camera) you have also "bugged" yourself.

Welcome to the 21st Century.

#13 Collection of personally-identifiable visual data for the purpose of law enforcement is fine.

Sharing of that information for purposes unrelated to law enforcement is not good.

#14 Lex, the problem becomes "How long do they keep that data?". Suppose someday in the future liberals make it illegal to go to a Republican rally. I know, I know. The Constitution forbids ex post facto laws. And guarantees freedom of peaceful assembly. But the Constitution is a "living document". So suddenly, police start combing the old tapes from the security cameras and looking for anyone who went to a Republican rally, and then rounding them up.

#15 What if a Panty-Fa thug crashed that rally and left a backpack with a bomb, killing dozens?

Wouldn't you want video footage and a rich database of facial images so as to accurately identify the perp and connect him to other thugs and break up the next planned mass killing?

#16 Don't hinder bad laws by hindering law enforcement.
Use our well-designed and very effective political mechanisms - judicial review, elections - to solve your political problem.

#17 Ban facial coverings outside weather needs and this shit would stop dead. Mama's basement doesn't stop your ventures out for fast food
