In February 2019, Nijeer Parks walked into the Woodbridge Police Department to clear up a misunderstanding after he received a call from his grandmother telling him police were looking for him. Parks had trouble with the law in his past, but that was behind him. The charges were serious: aggravated assault, unlawful possession of weapons, using a fake ID, possession of marijuana, shoplifting, leaving the scene of a crime, and resisting arrest. On top of that, Parks was accused of nearly hitting a police officer with a car. Detained by the Woodbridge police, Parks said he spent 11 days in jail. According to a police report obtained by CNN, the evidence presented by the police officers that led to Parks’ arrest was a “high profile comparison” from a facial recognition scan of a photo from what was determined to be a fake ID left at the crime scene. The facial recognition match was enough for prosecutors and a judge to sign off on his arrest. Tap the link in our bio to learn more about Parks’ story. ⁠

  2. When it comes to black people, it’s far from accurate and that has been known for a long time.

  3. Facial recognition didn’t send anyone to jail. Irresponsible authorities did.

    Blaming the software is just a way to wash their hands of responsibility.

    Innocent man.

  4. And this is our fear with modern day technology. How will we be able to dispute cases like this? Smh glad he has been freed now

  5. Something has to change in this so call justice system. Too many black men go to jail that shouldn’t. 😢😢

  6. There should be Federal laws against this tech be used. Not that authorizes need it to send innocent black men to prison but it’s another tool to try justify it.
