This technology is a disaster for personal freedom. there have been surveys done in london about how all the citizens feel like they are being watched all the time (with all the recognition cameras on the streets). the become depressed, withdrawn and generally live their lives in a perpetual state of fear. This is not the America our founding fathers envisioned. This technology is another stone in the road to tyranny as it will inevitably become invaluable to law enforcement and ordinary citizens will be under constant passive surveillence. If you have a conscience at all you will kill this idea immediately.
