    ‘authorities used the technology to help identify the suspect in the mass shooting at an Annapolis, Md., newspaper last June. But civil liberty groups have expressed unease about the technology’s potential abuse by government amid fears that it may shove the United States in the direction of an overly oppressive surveillance state’. Seriously?

      Sure then a professor wants white genocide, I guess that what everyone on the left wants white people dead. Your logic

      Also if he really believed in it he wouldn’t try to do a sad attempt to back pedal

      In what universe this professor represent liberals?? He is not a leader, does not run any organization. Does not have money behind him. Does not have influence on liberals.
      Following your logic you can blame all scientific community. At least some portion of scientists accepted him as professor.
      The link does not provide link to the video. It refers to tweets with no links. Tweets are much easier to take out of context.
      More interestingly, the professor was immediately fired. The people, who want to give guns to toddlers are still the thought leaders of the pro-gun community. They still have influence and money.
      So your whataboutism goes back to where it came from. USSR.

      “In what universe this professor represent liberals?? He is not a leader, does not run any organization. Does not have money behind him. Does not have influence on liberals.”

      But a nutter gun rights activist, represents all pro gun people.

      “Following your logic you can blame all scientific community. At least some portion of scientists accepted him as professor.”

      Lol he is no scientist. He was a useless professor of politics and global studies. Maybe read the article first

      “The link does not provide link to the video. It refers to tweets with no links. Tweets are much easier to take out of context.”

      Dude please don’t defend white genocide. He tweeted “All I want for Christmas is white genocide”. Lol you want context?

      “More interestingly, the professor was immediately fired. The people, who want to give guns to toddlers are still the thought leaders of the pro-gun community. They still have influence and money.”

      All of them claim they were in on the joke or it was taken out of context. So no one is vehemently endorsing it as you think

      Also no comedian has ever been dishonest in presenting or editing right?

      You completely ignore the facts that these people are leaders of pro gun movement. Pro gun people accept them using their money to bribe politicians. So yeah, I can judge.

      If you believe that the videos were doctored, where is the slander lawsuit? These people were presented in a very bad light. They are well off and can afford the lawsuit. Why did not they?

      I'm not defending genocide. But I think genocide in a tweet is less problematic than 30000 people dying every year because gun lobbyists obstruct public safety with the support of supposedly sane pro-gun advocates.

      You completely ignored the fact that they all back pedaled. And no one is endorsing it but yet you are still at it

      Actually this is the problem. Pro gun community has complete evil nut cases representing them. I mean using their money to bribe politicians.

      The majority of pro gun people don't support the policies pushed by these idiots, but they keep paying them because Obama comes after their guns. 🤦🏻‍♂️

      “The majority of pro gun people don't support the policies pushed by these idiots,”

      There that’s what I was looking for. And this is bad on my part because you specifically mentioned lobbyists.

      Well, they don't, but they let them use their money and speak on behalf of gun owners.

    • At least from news reports the accuracy on these things is borderline non-existent. I mean it's on par with a coin toss.

    Name one case where a surveillance state was a success and didn’t lead to abuse?

    First point is they’re banning old rules written 10 years ago for very limited tech at the time. The PD wasn’t even using this tech so it doesn’t matter. Facial recognition software has vastly improved since then so we need more rules to be written in how to beat use this technology before is used completely unregulated with old grandfathered in laws. That’s what this effort is. The old laws need to be rewritten is all.

    Convince me I’m wrong.
