Police now using facial recognition to spot jaywalkers in Shenzhen • That’s Shenzhen
Bailey Hu:
<p>Collective jaywalking is so common in Chinese cities that netizens have dubbed it 'the Chinese style of crossing the road.' In an attempt to fight the phenomenon, Shenzhen police recently installed new facial recognition technology at an intersection in Futian District.

The setup, which includes a electronic display board as well as cameras, began operation at the intersection of Xinzhou Lu and Lianhua Lu on April 15. The location has long been popular among pedestrians, in large part because it's close to Shenzhen's Peking University Hospital.

The 'intelligent pedestrian jaywalking evidence collecting system' operates 24 hours a day. It captures images of jaywalkers' faces, which then go on the display board for all to see. The system also saves the pictures, which theoretically allows it to recognize repeat offenders over time and even search for their identities through linkups to other government databases.</p>

I'd suspect there's less real facial recognition and more shaming by putting pictures up going on here.

Why Theresa May should scare you
Looked at objectively, Theresa May is very clearly a political leader who, given free rein, would be a dictator.
If we saw another country do that, especially in the developing world, we would be aghast. It is the most obvious case of a bent democracy.

According to Theresa May, this election will be about Brexit. But it’s also about something else.

It’s about ensuring that Theresa May and the Tories’ corrupt, disastrous, and potentially illegal regime is shored up.

We are faced with the prospect of a dictatorial Prime Minister whose power was acquired on the back of a fascist media.

If you aren’t scared, you should be.

An open letter to the public – Andrea Quinton
Why am I choosing to write to you now? Well I am a police officer. I have served you for 26 years, 2 of those as a volunteer. I love my job, I enjoy going to work, and I am at my absolute happiest when I know I have helped one of you.

I have been with you when your baby has died. Nothing affected me more that carrying your baby into the white coffin in the ambulance. I wasn’t even a mum myself then.

I have sat with you and revisited you when a burglar came and pretended to be one of us, and made you feel safe again...

There are thousands of us doing more than this every single day to protect you. Yes we make mistakes. Sometimes we get angry. We get tired and grumpy, and act unprofessionally. I pick up those pieces too, making sure we deal with that, and get those officers back on track.

I have no time for cops who are criminals...

But I am also a person. I am one of you. I am a wife and a mum of 2 young children. I do the school run. I do the shopping, the cooking and the cleaning. I hurt! I am affected by what you say. Last week it was a “whore”. That is the least of it. I am very affected by what I see.

Law Enforcement Uses Border Search Exception as Fourth Amendment Loophole
In recent months, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents have sought access to private data on the cell phones of two journalists. Such incidents are offensive because they threaten the independence of the press and pose specific risks to confidential sources.
