San Francisco Bans Facial Recognition Technology

May 18, 2019   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: ,

San Francisco, long at the heart of the technology revolution, took a stand against potential abuse on Tuesday by banning the use of facial recognition software by the police and other agencies.

The action, which came in an 8-to-1 vote by the Board of Supervisors, makes San Francisco the first major American city to block a tool that many police forces are turning to in the search for both small-time criminal suspects and perpetrators of mass carnage.

The authorities used the technology to help identify the suspect in the mass shooting at an Annapolis, Md., newspaper last June. But civil liberty groups have expressed unease about the technology’s potential abuse by government amid fears that it may shove the United States in the direction of an overly oppressive surveillance state.

    The mark of the beast is already being seen. It is not a gov micro chip, face scanner. It is already being worn on the black headscarf with white writings on the Islamic headbands and on the rings they wear. I wish I could share photo with you to show what I see. In there community you already cannot buy sell or trade without wearing that mark on hand or forehead. It will never come to America as long as we stay armed. I will try to e-mail you the understanding of the mark. Pay attention to mandkprager@gmail.com for photos of mark of the beast
