"The Rozzers?" Huh, obviously a slang term for police. I've heard "Bobby" and "peeler" (both from Sir Robert Peel), but "Rozzers" is a new one on me. I have heard "Bobby" used almost as a term of endearment, but not "peeler." Let's see here. "The nice Rozzer." Nope, doesn't scan. "The Rozzer is your friend." Nope, doesn't scan.

Hmm, a £90 fine for "public swearing." What, they gave him a 10% discount?

Opposition to algorithmic surveillance is not limited to Britain. Russia activists were reportedly arrested last month for holding a similar face paint protest over Moscow's facial recognition cameras. Hong Kong pro-democracy activists routinely use face masks in street protests to hide their identities. Rights groups in Serbia and Uganda have opposed government projects to install Chinese-supplied cameras.

The Guardian has a month old article about The Dazzle Club.

What lengths do we have to go to? Long hair to hide ears or false ears. Painted faces. Faces projected onto your real one. Infra red glasses to dazzle the facial recognizing cameras. Those covid-19 surgical masks must be playing havoc too. But there are more ways to biometrisize the population, such as gait. We are heading toward or have arrived at a dystopia Orwell could not have imagined.

Here is an audio file by The Guardian. Yikes! Yandex sounds like a FSB tool.

Do you really want some paedophile copper scanning your kid?

Trying to hide, eh? Must be guilty of something! Lock 'em up.

Yandex. Russian? Must be fine. I'm sure any of Russia's stooges would be happy to tell us so.

Hmm, I see you can listen to these podcasts with a smart phone app. I'm sure that's fine, too.

"Some paedophile copper?" Hmm. I wonder... <google google>

Sure enough! Ugh. Paedophile who joined police force to abuse children was suspect in rape and grooming cases before being recruited.

The same search turned up a case in Russia in which the offender got exactly what he deserved: 11-YEAR-OLD GIRL FENDS OFF PEDOPHILE POLICEMAN BY BEATING HIM WITH SCOOTER

After returning to her apartment building, she was approached by a man who dropped his pants and tried to pursue her into the elevator. Luckily, she had a scooter on hand and swung it into the assailant's groin, sending him crumpling to the floor, the newspaper said.

Working From Home? Zoom Tells Your Boss If You’re Not Paying Attention }Vice
Quote:
During the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans will be forced to work, play, and learn from home for the foreseeable future. Such a massive shift will lean not only on shaky and expensive U.S. broadband networks, but popular teleconferencing programs that often don’t quite work as advertised. Zoom in particular has seen a flood of new users, and the company’s stock has jumped roughly 20 percent since the COVID-19 outbreak began. But as new users flock to the platform for work, they should be aware of a few things: namely, the company’s data collection, its shaky privacy policy, and the fact your boss knows when you’re not giving them your undivided attention. Zoom offers users a feature called ‘attention tracking.’ According to the Zoom website the feature—which can be disabled if the chat administrator allows it—will track if participants have clicked away from the active Zoom window for more than half a minute.
When it comes to ratcheting up all forms of surveillance, never let a crisis go to waste!
