Facial recognition implemented by Danish police

Danish police has started using facial recognition, without any political discussion or protective laws in place.

Hundreds of cameras on Strøget already send live to the police. The cameras are facial recognition and gait analysis ready.

The use might be against human rights, as face and gait are sensitive personal information and therefore protected according to Danish law. No laws protect against related wrongful identification or discrimination.

Denmark is one of the countries with the highest number of cameras per capita.

Minister of Justice Søren Pape will appear in a meeting on August 23 to answer questions about the situation.

Is it okay to force you to open your iPhone?

Case: SB didn’t want to open his iPhone, wanting to consult with his lawyer first. Suddenly 5-10 cops sat on him, twisted his arms to handcuff him and forced his thumb against his phone. Then they left.

The cops have been charged with violence (?).

2 levels of courts have agreed with the police, that the procedure was legal. Now the 3rd and highest level will look at the case.

The question is: Can you compare a phone to a locked cabinet, and therefore it’s okay to open it by force? Or should the same rules apply to a phone password/pin and to a thumb print, where the police accept, that you can withhold your cooperation?

Is the supreme court the right place for this decision? Or should it be decided by law?

Is a procedure like the one described against the human rights, where you can’t be forced to incriminate yourself?

How Denmark treats refugee children

Child refugee arrives at the Danish border alone. If a lot of refugees are arriving at the same time (it happened in 2015), it should be possible to refuse them entry. (I can’t figure out whether this rule is in effect. But it has certainly been debated.)

Child refugee from Afghanistan is not granted asylum. There are plans to create centers for these children in Afghanistan. This applies when no family can be found.

Family is not granted asylum. They have to be sent home, but home won’t accept them, so they can’t be forced. So they live in a center in Denmark. 90 children live here. The recommendation is they should live here at most 2 weeks. They live here a lot longer. Parents and children have no idea when that situation will change. The parents feel insecure. Of course the children can sense that. Meals are eaten in large, noisy rooms. There is no access to a world free of fear, like regular school.

Hvordan flytter man nogen politisk?

Ja, jeg indrømmer det straks. Jeg er interesseret i at flytte folk på højrefløjen.

How To Use Moral Reframing To Persuade Conservatives To Support Immigration

Når nu du prøver. Så start med at finde ud af, hvilke værdier den anden har. I mit tilfælde: Jeg vil godt have, at staten er meget mildere overfor muslimer. Hvis min modpart går meget op i, at små virksomheder skal have mange rettigheder – kan jeg så lave en kæde fra den værdi til det slutresultat?

Muslims following Ramadan is a danger

Inger Støjberg is the Danish Minister for Immigration, Integration and Housing. (Wikipedia) 4 days ago she stated this on BT and  Facebook (shortened and translated by me):

“Ramadan means Muslims don’t eat for 18 hours. This doesn’t go well with long work days, sometimes running dangerous machines, coaches being driven, hospitals having to work as usual etc. Therefore Muslims should take their vacation during the month of Ramadan,”

Dyr bruger ikke kattebakke!

Kæle- og brugsdyrminister Mand Lunteby Hønsen fokuserer i denne uge på kæledyrshygiejnen. Der er potentiale til at få nogle af vores 2,1 millioner kæledyr til i højere grad at bruge deres kattebakke, udtaler han. Dette medie har stillet uddybende spørgsmål og kan forhåbentlig snarest fortælle mere om situationen.

Udrejsefuckingcenter

Jeg har lige set tv om et udrejsecenter.

For et par dage siden skrev jeg om, at mennesker som minimum bør have ret til mad, husly og sundhed. Udrejsecentret glipper på et par punkter.

  • Der er ikke noget fornuftigt at lave. Du har ikke engang dit eget tv. Du kan ikke arbejde. De fleste muligheder er desuden begrænset af, at du i princippet skal rejse i morgen. Det lyder enormt kedeligt. Og mange bliver psykisk påvirket af situationen.
  • Usikkerheden i sig selv. Skal jeg rejse i morgen? Den kan også være hård for psyken.

Det er med andre ord folks sundhed, der er i klemme.

Ingen fortjener den behandling. Ingen.
