    …sounds like “fatherland” security to me.

    Seems to me all the conserva clowns in my region were happy as all get out about facial scanning using public cameras, until they “stepped over the line” and started issuing speeding tickets and tracking things like meth and oxycodone transactions.

    Incidentally Ted, I don’t know what you use to get technical news, but this has been on the shelf tech since 2007 at least.

    Wow, the most obscure and untrue comment ever. Here’s your sign.

    What do you mean untrue? The British have already been using this technology. I saw it in action on a television documentary (I believe on Discovery Channel) several years back, so it’s not exactly obscure or a secret.

    This technology has been around for a while, but how much of it has gone beyond the science project stage and actually been fielded? Also, the widespread routine use of it by govt in public is problematic.

    Oink, oink! This hoary canard has been around right-wing extremist/hate group websites for a long time. For those who still care, here’s the cartoon: http://rall.com/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=3046

    “…the government today restricted the sales of such things as ski masks, face paint, and paper bags, saying that all of these items could be used by terrorists to evade the watchful eye of justice….”

    That’s okay, there are several companies already selling products that will circumvent these systems if you are concerned.

    Never hurts to remind people of it. It is amazing how much the corporate news leaves out.

    So what bee flew up your ass? Can’t comment on today’s so you dredge up your own inadequacies and peccadilloes and put it on Ted. Pathetic.
