Authorities in the state of Louisiana are appearing to take a page out of the CCP’s playbook.
Randall Reid, 28, was wrongfully arrested after Louisiana authorities used facial recognition technology to pin a purse theft on Reid.
Reid was arrested in Dekalb County, Georgia after Louisiana authorities issued a fugitive warrant for Reid.
Attorney Tommy Calogero who is representing Reid, stated his client was arrested on November 25th for purse thefts in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana and was released on December 1st after facial recognition errors were found.
Randal Reid was driving to his mom’s for Thanksgiving when he was arrested for a Louisiana theft.
Using a facial recognition tool, cops had identified him as one of the men who stole $10K worth of designer purses.
But Reid had never been to Louisiana…https://t.co/j3idPGjdbV

Reid told the Associated Press:
“They told me I had a warrant out of Jefferson Parish. I said, ‘What is Jefferson Parish?’” Reid said. “I have never been to Louisiana a day in my life. Then they told me it was for theft. So not only have I not been to Louisiana, I also don’t steal.”
The United States is well behind China when it comes to facial recognition technology being used in the public square and many Americans want it to stay that way.
A database leak in 2019 revealed almost every citizen is tracked in China’s facial recognition system.
Children are also being tracked in schools.
WEF – facial recognition in schools is “almost like an extra teaching assistant”
Our children’s free will, thought and speech all monitored, judged, and controlled. Surveillance won’t make them safer, it will suffocate them.
Do you see it yet?
