一男子因面部识别使用不当的逮捕而起诉警方

Man sues police over a facial recognition-related wrongful arrest

新泽西州一名男子因面部识别不正确而被误逮捕,他正在起诉伍德布里奇镇及其警察局。去年1月发生一起商店盗窃事件后,尼杰尔·帕克斯(Nijeer Parks)在狱中度过了10天,其中包括一周的“功能性单独监禁”。

A New Jersey man is suing the town of Woodbridge and its police department after he was falsely arrested following an incorrect facial recognition match. Nijeer Parks spent 10 days in jail last year, including a week in “functional solitary confinement,” following a shoplifting incident that January.

警官们接到电话来到伍德布里奇的汉普顿一家旅馆后,被指控的商店扒手向他们出示了一张田纳西州的驾照,他们认定这张驾照是假的。当他们发现他口袋里似乎有一袋大麻后试图逮捕他时,这名男子开着租来的车逃跑了。一名警官说,他必须跳开,否则他会被击中。

After officers were called to a Hampton Inn in Woodbridge, the alleged shoplifter presented them with a Tennessee driver’s license, which they determined was fake. When they attempted to arrest him after spotting what appeared to be a bag of marijuana in his pocket, the man fled in his rental car. One officer said he had to leap out of the way or he would have been hit.

能够使用面部识别系统的州政府机构分析了牌照上的照片,他们发现帕克斯的州身份证上有明显的匹配。帕克斯作证说,他甚至从未开车或去过伍德布里奇,他能够证明,事发时他正在30英里外的一家药店汇款。去年11月,他花了5000多美元为自己辩护,他的案子被驳回。

State agencies with access to facial recognition systems analyzed the photo from the license and they found an apparent match in Parks’ state ID. Parks, who testified that he had never even driven a car or been to Woodbridge, was able to prove that he was sending money at a pharmacy over 30 miles away at the time of the incident. His case was dismissed in November last year after he spent over $5,000 defending himself.
