If Rep. Rashida Tlaib is opposed to it then it must be a very good tool for apprehending criminals and terrorists.
The Detroit Police Department called out Rep. Rashida Tlaib for making prejudgments about their real-time crime center software and challenged her to view it before making outlandish statements.
Tlaib is right out of the liberal playbook. She wants security and law and order, but she doesn’t want the police to do their jobs. Sort of like Obama’s Terms of Engagement policy in Afghanistan and Iraq. The liberal mindset is this: I want to lose weight, but I’m not going to give up junk food. So I will sue the junk food companies because I’m obese.
The Detroit Police Department tweeted, “Before you criticize the software, come to our Real Time Crime Center to see how we @detroitpolice responsibly use it in efforts to identify criminals involved in violent crimes. Let’s set a date.”

Tlaib responded with this tweet:
.@detroitpolice I'm in.
I would ask that you please review the 2 @OversightDems hearings (Part I & II: https://t.co/VhCYvPajXe ) on facial recognition & see the indisputable data that it's flawed. Residents are very concerned. I can share what I've found during the visit. https://t.co/M2ax88LGyF

This tense minor exchange occurs as lawmakers around the nation voice have voiced concerns about law enforcement’s use of facial recognition technology and whether it infringes on individuals’ privacy.
In May, San Francisco became the first U.S. city to prohibit facial recognition used by its local law enforcement and other city agencies.
As the Detroit Police Department utilizes the facial recognition technology, the city charter specifies that the Detroit Board of Police Commissioners has to approve a policy on how it should be operated.
It seems that Tlaib does not like a tool that will help capture criminals. The only people who were against this technology would be a criminal.
Police: “Tlaib, did you know your phone has an app for facial recognition?” Tlaib: “yeah, I downloaded it and tried it on me, it just made the sound flatulence, then shuts off. I can’t turn it back on…”
Bernie Sanders and Tlaib are just afraid that the technology will identify half of their voting base as criminals. She should just be happy someone actually invited her somewhere instead of banning her from being there. Still banned from ever stepping foot on any of my property.
The same people who are crying “foul” about a Fourth Amendment issue and protecting criminals are the same ones who have no issue destroying the Second Amendment as it pertains to non-criminal citizens.
We REALLY need to get back to teaching American history and civics in school again.
