Chances are that eventually someone, somewhere is going to recognize you and you're gonna get busted, now they have super computer assistance.  It's kind of like trying to get away with anything while growing up in a small town or tight neighborhood...

"Few local law enforcement agencies talk openly about how they use facial recognition."

"In arrest reports and court documents detailing the case, there is no mention of facial recognition."

I see those two statements as huge problems.

Ever been to merry old England? All those cameras don't seem to curb the bad behavior in the streets much if at all.   

On the other hand I was just in a midsized Spanish city with almost no cameras, a real surprise to me,  and the patterns of crime are just as visible to the residents as the cops who actually work from the sidewalks. And they manage to keep a lid on it.

Amazon's facial-recognition technology is supercharging local police

This is your future now. Better not be out there having "complicated" emotions.

Amazon's software is rapidly becoming more advanced. The company last month announced a Rekognition update that would, among other things, improve the accuracy of the system's "emotion detection" feature, which automatically speculates on how someone is feeling based on how they look on camera. It includes "7 supported emotions: 'Happy,' 'Sad,' 'Angry,' 'Surprised,' 'Disgusted,' 'Calm' and 'Confused.'

As for the right to confront you accusers, good luck with that.

Marc Brown, a chief deputy defender working with Oregon's Office of Public Defense Services, said he worried the system's hidden decision-making could improperly tilt the balance of power: Human eyewitnesses can be questioned in court, but not this "magic black box," and "we as defense attorneys cannot question, you know, how did this process work."

The system's results, Brown added, could pose a huge confirmation-bias problem by steering how deputies react. "You've already been told that this is the one, so when you investigate, that's going to be in your mind," he said. "The question is no longer who committed the crime, but where's the evidence to support the computer's analysis?"

But I don't look good in a hoodie.
