Summary (IA Generated)

A man who was falsely accused of shoplifting has sued the Detroit Police Department for arresting him based on an incorrect facial recognition match.

The Detroit Police Department arrested Williams in 2019 after examining security footage from a shoplifting incident.

The department then produced a photo lineup that included Williamspicture, showed it to a security guard who hadn’t actually witnessed the shoplifting incident, and obtained a warrant when that guard picked him from the lineup.

The ACLU claims Detroit police used facial recognition under circumstances that they should have known would produce unreliable results, then dishonestly failed to mention the system’s shortcomings — including a “woefully substandard” image and the known racial bias of recognition systems.

But the complaint calls this incident part of a pattern, pointing to a second wrongful arrest involving a Black man misidentified by facial recognition tech.

Outside Detroit, at least one other Black man has sued for a wrongful arrest based on facial recognition.
