Nebraska one of 16 states that lets FBI's sloppy facial recognition system 'match' you to criminals

You can thank the Unicameral and Gov. Heineman for this, although the Nebraska DMV didn't tell anyone at the time that it would be sharing Nebraska driver's license photos by the millions to federal agents. It only told the public that its photos would be scanned to stop fraud and identity theft.

The Nebraska DMV said, at the time, that it had 1.5 million faces. The Government Accounting Office says the State of Nebraska now shares 8 million faces.

How sloppy is the FBI's facial recognition matching?

How sloppy is Nebraska's own facial recognition system?  Who uses it? What is it used for? Those would be good questions for the Nebraska ACLU, wouldn't they?
