In an op-ed in the Boston Globe, Boston Celtics basketball players urge Gov. Charlie Baker, R-Mass., to reconsider his opposition to a bill that would place a moratorium on facial recognition use by police. The players called Baker’s stance “deeply troubling,” writing, “Massachusetts lawmakers’ proposed regulations make sense for racial justice and public safety. By prohibiting government agencies from using face recognition technology to surveil people, it will prevent racially biased, discriminatory surveillance technology from being used to track us everywhere we go.”
