Law Enforcement Takes Police Surveillance to New Heights

Hosted by  • 

It sounds like a Hollywood movie, but surveillance technologies developed for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan may be coming to a city near you. Will "wide-area surveillance" and "facial recognition" make America safer? Do they threaten the right to privacy and the presumption of innocence? Also, Russia and Ukraine reach a deal, but pro-Russia militants are ignoring it. On today's Talking Point: a planet 500 light years away that looks very familiar.
