    I gotta agree with that.

    Until they actually do any of that, its called the 1st amendment. Oh, and it all can be done on a smart phone held in your hand. What is the difference?

    Yet you are fine with police officers being recorded and videoed during the commission of their duties.

    This difference is the owner doesn't like it.

    Besides being completely over the top and uncalled for, how do facial recgonition algorithms help you rape anyone?

    Wait until O'Keefe gets a Google glass to make his next video. Suddenly the outrage will switch sides.

    No doubt filming someone without their knowledge etc is creepy, but at some point we have to acknowledge and face reality, which is that the technology is getting do small, inconspicuous , and integrated in to our lives that at some point you will no longer be able to stop it.

    And to be frank, it's not just other people you need to be worried about, it's your government as well. Look at the NSA thing . That's not an aberration, that's the brave new world. You think you're anonymous online? Think again.

    So the question is, do we bitch and complain about it, or do we adapt and thrive. I vote adapt and thrive.

    Technology is normally a good thing but it does have a tendency to change the world. Violently, even brutally sometimes, but if history has taught us one thing it's never be on the wrong side on the fence when it comes to embracing a sweeping new technology.

    It's not breaking the law to enter with, say, no shoes or a gun or Google glasses, but to refuse to leave when asked is trespassing...which is a crime.
    I really thought that they might not be able to just ban whatever they want. I thought that if sued, they would have to prove in court that they actually have a legitimate reason for doing so.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It's a private business, they can have such policies.

    Don't understand why stories like this have to turn into massive outrages.

    If it were me I'd just me like "Ooooooookay, I'll take my money elsewhere then".

    Now this does not apply to innate traits such as being gay or black so don't be misunderstandin.
