NYPD besiege protester based on false facial recognition match


Based on a facial recognition match, the New York City Police Department sent more than 50 officers to besiege the home of a racial justice organiser, claiming he had shouted in an officer's ear at a protest in the summer of 2020. The officers were unable to produce a warrant when asked, but deployed snipers, drones, helicopters, and police dogs. The organiser, Derrick Ingram, has filed a lawsuit.
