Face the facts

“Amazon’s Tool for Facial Recognition Fans Privacy Fears,” The Wall Street Journal, May 23, 2018 B4.  People reach to Amazon’s sale of facial recognition technology to law enforcement authorities, fearing such technology might be misused.

I guess the law enforcement types could misuse the technology, but then they could misuse their guns, too.  How is this different?  Isn’t technology neutral?  Is the issue really, “What controls does the user have in place to prevent misuse?”

Don’t corporations have a duty to their shareholders to make revenues by selling legal products?  Why should Amazon prefer the views of the ACLU over the interests of Amazon shareholders?
