Facial Recognition
is already happening.

And we already know that it's inaccurate, racially biased,
and probably unconstitutional.

Yes, we know: Facial Recognition technology sounds like a bad episode of Black Mirror. 


But police departments around the country are already using it. 


And since legal scholars have already -- extensively --  proven that police use of facial recognition is inaccurate and discriminatory (and plenty of lawyers and judges are worried that facial recognition violates privacy and free speech rights)

it's no surprise that advocates from the left and the right (and major figures like IBM and the Pope)

have called for its regulation (or banning it outright).

So why is the public still asleep on the fight against facial recognition?And why haven't programmers and policy makers fixed it?
