Arizona Citizens Tracked In Facial Recognition Database In First Step For 'REAL ID' Implemen

• zerohedge.com by Aaron Kesel

This allows federal and local law enforcement to use the "perpetual lineup" of suspects not accused of a crime to see if someone is wanted for a crime, Arizona Capitol Times reported.

The state says that the program is to prevent identity theft and fraud. Here's how it works according to Arizona Capitol Times.

After someone at the Motor Vehicle Division takes your photo, your face is scanned by a system based on a proprietary algorithm that analyzes facial features.

The system compares your face against the 19 million photos in the state's driver's license database to look for similarities. If an image is similar enough, the system will flag it for further review.
