Civil rights groups are demanding that Amazon stop selling the software tool, called Rekognition, to police and other government entities because they think it will unfairly target people.

LANSING — If you’ve never been arrested, it’s highly unlikely your fingerprints are on file with the Michigan State Police.

But if you’ve ever gotten a Michigan driver’s license or a state ID card, it’s almost certain the State Police has your mug shot.

The MSP photo database may even contain your Facebook profile photo or another social media image, if police obtained that photo in connection with a criminal investigation, even if you were never charged.

There are only about 8 million adults in Michigan, but there are nearly 50 million facial images in the MSP’s Statewide Network of Agency Photos (SNAP), with 2.7 million photos added to the database last year alone.

3. When I was a kid the police fingerprinted my school

In case we got "kidnapped" you know. I wonder if all those are still in the system. They probably take DNA now. Police state gonna police I guess.

4. the fingerprint data base is a good thing

and so is a photo recognition data base.

a dna data base is a most desirable thing

if a body is dropped in the woods, why shouldn't the cops use gps from cars and cell phones to identify potential witnesses and suspects?

5. So you think the government should have all rights and power and the citizens no power or privacy.

Spoken like a true communist.

6. no, i don't

but if someone os dropping bodies in the woods the police should have modern tools to identuft them before it is mts oldenough or one of her fayfhters being dropped there.

how about "realid?" should our i d cards be easier to counterfiet than our money?
