A cyberpunk dystopia where there is no such thing as privacy and no way to hide from big brother is coming at us a lot sooner than I expected. I thought license plate scanners were bad but this is far more spooky.

What other kind of augments will police soon use to help them efficiently detain the undesirables?

People are already way ahead of you on that

But if you're willing to walk around in public with that kinda shit on your face, maybe you are an undesirable

You know the cops will respond to this the same way they do anything else that undermines their authoritah: abusing you until people give up.

Wearing face paint is just literally painting a target on yourself. If it were a social movement, sure, but it won't be because everyone is just waiting for death at this point.

Cops have helmet cams. Those aren't all bad as long as they can't turn them off. If you're always on camera then you have to behave and that cuts both ways. Of course that assumes there's actually any consequences for police brutality but they have definitely resulted in better behavior from everyone outside the US. Cops should either not be able to turn them off, or turning them off outside specific authorised circumstances should be treated as extremely incriminating behavior. I wouldn't have a problem with helmet cams given those and a few other provisos. However I'm sure they can be made to "go blind" to looking into people's windows and stuff when in residential areas soon for example. I'm sure that won't be implemented though. Ever.

I don't like the ideas of recognition glasses as they don't protect people at all. They do however expose them to further risks. If these devices are online or whatever though, they'll need to be heavily encrypted or you're giving a lot of people access to delicate data. If they can recognise faces they're connected to a database and they're doing it wirelessly. Hell, rather than intereception of transmissions people could completely take them over and use them to access criminal records for their own uses. I suspect this will have been given consideration but neglected due to cost/lowest bidder bullshit. More worryingly than cops pulling your data, criminals will be able to recognise you too.
