Anger over face-scanning cameras

Author: JT Smith

BBC: "The Super Bowl by many has come to be known as the
Snooper Bowl because officials used cameras and face
recognition technology to scan the crowds for known
criminals.

The use of the face-scanning cameras did not come out
until after the game and the public was outraged.

The industry stands by its technology but is now calling
for federal law in the US to govern its use."
