Facial Recognition False, this comes from a mistaken news article that has since been corrected. A news outlet that reported that a facial recognition company identified members of Antifa among the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol has now apologised and issued a correction.

Offering an alternative explanation to the one already given. I came across this as part of my own research, so take this with a grain of salt (although I certainly don't buy into the fluffy "rabbi" explanation).
