Amazon is equipping law enforcement with powerful facial recognition software:

You know all those cameras going up around seemingly every intersection in your city? Yeah, the Rokognition software can presumably tap into those to recognize you in real time.

As much as it scares normies that Alexa texted their private conversation about hardwood floors to a friend, this is worse due to its chilling of free speech and targeting of certain groups. Amazon also powers a huge portion of government infrastructure (storage) on Amazon Web Services.

Don't go gently into a surveillance state.
