    Hong Kong has shown you how Surveillance technology will turn into a tool that the police force abuses.
    It is not worth it for a few percents dropped in crime.

      Fitting everybody with an arrest anklet will also increase safety, hey while we're here, let's just hold everyone guilty until proven otherwise, it's interesting how years back when there was the idea of microchipping people huge majority was shocked and refused the idea, but now after years of our brains slowly trained into accepting privacy intrusions and bought off by pretty selfies and promise of a glittering lifestyle , the unprecedented theft of freedom and essential liberty is probably to go smoothly as any slave master's dream

                      That‘s why America is so degenerated! In Europe, Citizens take it easy when the police stops them. Usually it‘s a regular Smalltalk with showing the ID and some Blabla. Totally harmless, you don‘t even care. But hosts like you spread the fear of events like this - making them the worst thing that can happen to you. It‘s sad. Why you promote resistance against police stoppings which leads to people get killed?

                          I'm all for it as a person that doesn't break the law
                          If we knew who did what and where they were, crime would drop dramatically
                          we are already on camera when we shop for food,clothing,furniture,electronics etc
                          if the option to know if a dangerous person was near you, your spouse or your kids we'd take it

                            and when a new law stipulates that anyone who does not bend over and take it up the booty pipe whenever authorities tell them, you are going to be one of the first to fall in line

                          Everything has its advantages and disadvantages. In my opinion, Technology is not bad but how it is used, that is the problem.

                              When you have for-profit prisons, you can no longer work under the presumption that the law enforcement and judicial system is impartial and fair. Cops, judges, everyone in the law enforcement and judicial machine is tasked with feeding the capitalist beast. Cops will have stop/search and arrest quotas, judges will have sentencing quotas, parole boards will have approval/denial targets. All aspects of the system will be gamed to ensure a steady flow of inmates to keep the cellblocks full. For-profit prisons are the reason the US incarcerates more people per head of population than any other nation on earth.

                                        Yes, it is dual use technology. Most of the advances are coming out of Stanford and other top schools, and getting published basically for the public to see. Then you see these systems popping up in China for surveillance on their own people and on ethnic minoritites. Be careful. Very careful.

                                          What’s wrong with stopping a suspect ?
                                          It doesn’t mean your human rights are violated.

                                                      Clearly mistaken on how this actually works. No police department is going to say that "the machine said it was you, therefore it is you". The machine doesn't say who it is, all it does is produce matches of certain peoples who may be a suspect. Once that happens, the officer can detain you for further questioning. All this is doing is helping officers find where a possible suspect lives. So much fear mongering about literally a piece of software that just looks through the list of people who make look like that for you.
