I made the same joke about the facial recognition working when I saw the headline. I didn't read any article though. Now that I know it has a tendency to mistakenly tag non-white people more than white people, I am not sure the joke is quite as funny.

I am not knocking the technology itself but after reading that linked article I'm scared of how it will (not even a question of if) be abused by law enforcement agencies going forward.

Think about it, they could scan the face of everyone at a protest and arrest you or go after you for your political expression. They'll just some BS violation to charge you for to get around the constitutional issues. Law enforcement has a long history of infiltrating and spying on political movements. As we speak they are all up in Black Lives Matter trying to spy on them.

If Trump manages to get elected to a second term, that is exactly what will start happening by the end of the first year.

When I see a reality TV show on, I can't help but wonder which one of these jackasses will be president in the future.

My first take was "good joke", but I'll bet that's being sold on QVC for 12 easy payments of 29.99. On velvet or limited edition print signed by the artist.
