Just as the EU is looking to ban facial recognition, some British police forces are starting to use it.

It's like a newly independent Britain is trolling the EU.

I truly don't see the problem. If you are not a criminal there is no one looking for you and they have all kinds of benefits when looking for instigators of riots and road blocks. If the civil liberties groups are against them then they are probably a good thing. Not good for defence liars though.

What difference between that and the traffic cameras that will take a picture of your license plate if you go through a red light?

It's the professional protestors that are outraged, probably leading the protest against facial recognition

That one sends the ticket to the registered owner, not the driver. Kinda fink on a friend thing and should be illegal.
