    But yet it's acceptable at all the major airports retina scan facial recognition was developed in 1959 it is a federal offense to wear a mask like black lives matter or antifa or any of the other Marxist communist organizations finance by open society George Soros as well as Lord malloch-brown friends of masonic Mason's of Prince Hall since the Queen's privy council is England and England owns Prince Masonic order. You know they are the blue bloods. I'm going to leave it at that. Now here is a chief of police under a lot of stress and here he makes the time to communicate to the people in Detroit. so who are the terrorists who are the criminals coming off the planes and landing in Detroit Michigan and they're not using facial recognition they sure are. Could federal dollars be cut from Detroit government could Lords of London insurance company cut down on a response and larger corporations would not be insured because they didn't have access to facial recognition remember facial recognition retina scans is so advanced it can see through sunglasses it can see through a mask.

    of course you should use facial recognition in real-time if you have a chance of catching a person in Detroit who hit a woman rip a kid but killing innocent grandma or Grandpa. at that point a lot of Detroit Receiving the criminals will turn you in because not everybody likes people like that even if there's actually doing crimes in Detroit they're doing small crimes. even a lot of gang members don't like people doing that to their families. if you don't do it you know how I'm famous Detroit Justice is we take care of our own problems in Detroit because caps used to be criminals chief of police now. never forget Detroit dresses the whole block will come out on your ass Traeger her little girl somebody's mama the Caps never used to show up in the 80s and 90s sometimes in mm the cats were the criminals. the caps used to be the drug dealers you can pay cops the projector drug dealers with the whole shipment of cocaine in a pickup truck. the FBI in Detroit is crooked as well that's on meth in 90s that's an actual fact FBI.
