    UK Cops Fine Pedestrian $115 For Avoiding Facial Recognition Camera

    A UK pedestrian was arrested and fined £90 ($115 US) after attempting to cover his face while passing a controversial facial recognition camera van on a East London street. The notorious London police vans scan the faces of passers-by and compare them to a database of wanted criminals.

    One man wasn't having any of it, and was seen covering his face with his hat and jacket before London police stopped him and took his picture anyway according to the Daily Mail.

    "If I want to cover me face, I'll cover me face. Don't push me over when I'm walking down the street," said the man after his stop.
    "How would you like it if you walked down the street and someone grabbed your shoulder? You wouldn't like it, would you?" the man asked an officer, who replied "Calm yourself down or you're going in handcuffs. It's up to you. Wind your neck in."
    "You wind your neck in," the man replied.

    After being fined, the man told a reporter: 'The chap told me down the road - he said they've got facial recognition. So I walked past like that (covering my face).
    'It's a cold day as well. As soon as I've done that, the police officer's asked me to come to him. So I've got me back up. I said to him 'f*** off', basically.
    'I said 'I don't want me face shown on anything. If I want to cover me face, I'll cover me face, it's not for them to tell me not to cover me face.
    'I've got a now £90 fine, here you go, look at that. Thanks lads, £90. Well done.' -Daily Mail


    The ticketing comes in the wake of another similar incident in February, in which another man refused to be scanned by one of the facial recognition vans and was also fined £90.
    "He simply pulled up the top of his jumper over the bottom of his face, put his head down and walked past," said Silkie Carlo, director of Big Brother Watch, who added that at least one man had seen placards warning the public of the facial recognition cameras being used from a parked police van.
    "There was nothing suspicious about him at all Ö you have the right to avoid [the cameras], you have the right to cover your face. I think he was exercising his rights," said Carlo.
