    Was going to add this to the England Megathread but this needs it's own thread.

    Police fine pedestrian £90 over facial recognition camera row | Daily Mail Online

    • Camera cross-checked photos of faces of passers-by against wanted database
    • One man covered face before officers stopped him and took his picture anyway
    • He was fined £90 at scene in Romford by police who arrested three other people
    • Police say they know of human rights concerns but want to make London safer
    • Civil liberties groups insists it is a 'breach of privacy and freedom of assembly'
    • New technlogy incorrectly identified people in 96% of matches from 2016 to 18

    Police fined a pedestrian £90 for disorderly behaviour after he tried to cover his face when he saw a controversial facial recognition camera on a street in London.

    Officers set up the camera on a van in Romford, East London, which then cross-checked photos of faces of passers-by against a database of wanted criminals.

    But one man was unimpressed about being filmed and covered his face with his hat and jacket, before being stopped by officers who took his picture anyway.

    After being pulled aside, the man told police: 'If I want to cover me face, I'll cover me face. Don't push me over when I'm walking down the street.'

    London is off my bucket list.

    But then I removed it years ago.

    Crap food, warm beer, bad teeth. Whatever.

    He did it wrong. He should have covered his face with a burka then nothing would have happened.

    'It is less resource intensive which will save police time and money and allow police to concentrate resources on other priorities.'
    Like searching for possibly offensive fb posts reported by their sheep.

    "going about masked" - fine-able offense

    Ah, the early English 1800s are back... soon it'll be met with imprisonment, and finally they'll bring back the death penalty so they can hang you for it if it's done while committing another felony. Spectacular. Some day, they'll have rolled back almost all the rights gained through the early 1900s. We'll see if they reduce the scope of those permitted to vote next.

    Beat me to it!

    The "V" one is a good one too. Hadn't thought of that.

    How about this one?
