It only took a quick glance at this horrible legislation to find some massive problems. The bill says that “No officer or employee of a state agency shall use facial recognition technology to engage in ongoing surveillance…”
According to a 2012 study by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, cops (government agents) support the double plate requirement because it helps them give tickets to more drivers, as reported by Cars.com:
In a time of civil unrest over abuse of police powers, the New Hampshire House judiciary committee voted against a bill banning facial recognition systems by government employees and agencies. The committee essentially indicated that they support the use of facial recognition technology by police in New Hampshire.
It appears as though the Manchester Police Department is constantly looking for new ways to spy on, control, and abuse peaceful citizens.
If you asked every conservative and pro-liberty individual in the US what their most important political issues were, you might find that their top concerns involved endless foreign entanglements, domestic surveillance, socialism, gun control, and immigration.
