Amazon Teams Up With Law Enforcement to Deploy Dangerous New Facial Recognition Technology

Matt Cagle, Nicole Ozer
Amazon, which got its start selling books and still bills itself as “Earth’s most customer-centric company,” has officially entered the surveillance business.

The company has developed a powerful and dangerous new facial recognition system and is actively helping governments deploy it. Amazon calls the service “Rekognition.”

All thieves should wear “Jeff Bezos” masks while committing crimes.
Then cops would be swarming the Amazon offices to arrest the real criminal.

In future protests they will be able to name everybody who participates. Does that scare the living piss out of you? If it doesn’t then you are an absolute idiot.

When America finally can’t take anymore and decides to rise up they are in for a world of pain. The jackboots will be ready.

We should start seeing Amazon as one of the most evil companies in the world. We should also see the flip side of his personal wealth for what it is: a generator of massive inequality. Inequality means illnesses gone untreated, infrastructure not maintained, education not funded, lives truncated and potential gone unrealized. Inequality means violence at a societal scale. Amazon, more than any other single company, has turned Seattle from one of “the most live-able cities” into a city fewer and fewer can afford to live in.
