What is it going to take for Americans to realize that law enforcement has become an extension of Big Brother?

All across the country, police officers are secretly using facial recognition to identify neighbors and people of interest.

Police already have a history of abusing criminal record searches like CORI.

Ex-State Trooper Michael Szymanski said, “I can’t tell you how many times I saw troopers run their next-door neighbor through CORI, run their old girlfriends’ names, or run someone who they’re having a dispute with,” he said. “I’ve seen a million different guys using CORI inappropriately.”

Keep in mind that police abuse of criminal record searches is not limited to just Massachusetts, a Google search for "police abuse criminal records searches" returned more than 114 million hits.

What do you think will happen when police use facial recognition smartphones to identify anyone they want?

A recent NBC News article titled "How Facial Recognition Became A Routine Policing Tool In America" revealed how difficult it is to find out if police are using facial recognition.

The article revealed that "few local law enforcement agencies talk openly about how they use facial recognition." It also revealed that their is "no mention of facial recognition in arrest reports and court documents" and that is a huge problem.

Last week a press release revealed that LexisNexis Risk Solutions acquired Lumen from Numerica Corporation.

“The acquisition of the Lumen product line of Numerica continues our 20-year investment and commitment to the public safety sector,” said Haywood Talcove, CEO, Government, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “We will continue to foster the innovations that have made both LexisNexis Risk Solutions and Numerica leaders in the marketplace. We look forward to working with our joint customers and welcoming the new police agencies, including the Colorado Information Sharing Consortium.”

Police use facial recognition to identify your family and friends

The article also revealed that police across the country are using Lexis Nexis's, "Lumen" facial recognition app. to identify a person's "personal links, vehicle associations, tattoos and much more."

According to Lumen, police officers can use Lumen to pull up pictures of your friends and relatives in seconds!
LexisNexis, is one of the country's largest collectors of personal information on individuals. They profit from collecting everyone's Social Security Number, birth-date and much much more.

Lexis Nexis's "Why Lumen Mobile" page allows police officers to use their smartphone or tablet to identify "a subject and get a clear view of his or her known associates, vehicles, and involvements."

Lumen encourages police officers to spy on people...

"Wherever you are, you have instant access to information about people, vehicles, events, and locations at the click of a button."

If you combine all the information that Lexis Nexis collects with Lumen's facial recognition software, the amount of personal information that law enforcement has access to is terrifying.

East Germany's Stasi would be frothing at their mouths to have had this kind of information to spy on everyone.

Corporate surveillance and law enforcement working together to track a person's known associates, relatives,vehicles, SSN etc., is a recipe for disaster.
