"...after facial recognition software identifies his tattoos."

"Objection, your honor, the software is not qualified in that field, and I move for immediate dismissal of the case."

Reminds me of the origin of one of our favorite concepts:  https://medium.com/@little​brown/i-wore​-the-juice-the-dunning-kruger-effect-f​8ac3299eb1

At five foot six and 270 pounds, the bank robber was impossible to miss. On April 19, 1995, he hit two Pittsburgh banks in broad daylight. Security cameras picked up good images of his face - he wore no mask - and showed him holding a gun to the teller. Police made sure the footage was broadcast on the local eleven o'clock news. A tip came in within minutes, and just after midnight, the police were knocking on the suspect's door in McKeesport. Identified as McArthur Wheeler, he was incredulous. "But I wore the juice," he said.

Wheeler told police he rubbed lemon juice on his face to make it invisible to security cameras. Detectives concluded he was not delusional, not on drugs - just incredibly mistaken.

Wheeler knew that lemon juice is used as an invisible ink. Logically, then, lemon juice would make his face invisible to cameras. He tested this out before the heists, putting juice on his face and snapping a selfie with a Polaroid camera. There was no face in the photo! (Police never figured that out. Most likely Wheeler was no more competent as a photographer than he was as a bank robber.) Wheeler reported one problem with his scheme. The lemon juice stung his eyes so badly that he could barely see.

Wow look at that crystal clear video footage.

It's almost as if police are creating negative staged events to gain more sympathy. Because 'defund the police' is destroying them.

Thats not even close to being almost true. In any way.

"Newport Beach police power-washed the two vehicles and estimated the cost for repairs around $400."

I'm actually impressed that they didn't do cop math and didn't get into the triple digits, or even declare the vehicles totaled.

We need to stop letting the cops dress like theyre about to invade Poland.
They need to wear a blue uniform with a name tag. If they want to carry a machine gun theres a place called the US Marines where theyll give you all the bullets and green clothes you want.

Influencers? Got arrested for tagging?!!
How do you tag a vehicle any way, unless it also had an account?!

Yeah but they did do typical cop overreaction

on suspicion of vandalism, participating in a criminal street gang and committing a felony for the benefit of a street gang

3 felony charges for havinng to bust out the chamois cloth and ArmorAll. Seems legit.

No thanks, I don't want to get them confused with Wolverine. How about blue, but with red underwear worn on top of their pants?

...In decreasing circles around thiere badge; and specify that the badge is worn on the chest, not on the belt or underclothes. What ARE they trying to hide? and why?

/ International orange, so it not much of a change when they go to jail

Tag?  Oh, graffiti.  Taggers deserve the death penalty.  Although this guy tagged cop cars, so maybe should be an exception?

You can't just say "unlawful assembly" and expect anything to happen.
