Georgia Man Wrongfully Arrested After Facial Recognition Error

Authorities in the state of Louisiana are appearing to take a page out of the CCP’s playbook.

Randall Reid, 28, was wrongfully arrested after Louisiana authorities used facial recognition technology to pin a purse theft on Reid.

Reid was arrested in Dekalb County, Georgia after Louisiana authorities issued a fugitive warrant for Reid.

Attorney Tommy Calogero who is representing Reid, stated his client was arrested on November 25th  for purse thefts in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana and was released on December 1st after facial recognition errors were found.

Reid told the Associated Press:

“They told me I had a warrant out of Jefferson Parish. I said, ‘What is Jefferson Parish?’” Reid said. “I have never been to Louisiana a day in my life. Then they told me it was for theft. So not only have I not been to Louisiana, I also don’t steal.”

The United States is well behind China when it comes to facial recognition technology being used in the  public square and many Americans want it to stay that way.

A database leak in 2019 revealed almost every citizen is tracked in China’s facial recognition system.

Children are also being tracked in schools.
