When FBI looks at surveillance video, are they also required to rely on another sort of proof?

To surmise the persons in video are not dressed up like another person?

There was one picture where a nose and chin were different colors, yet that could also be due to temperature.

Don't want innocent people in prison.

    I'm not aware of any criminal cases where video alone was enough to convict. The burden of proof for arrest is "probable cause" and the burden for conviction "beyond a reasonable doubt". That is determined by the judge and/or jury, not the FBI.

    No one wants innocent people in prison, and, no.

    That's going to depend on how the jury sees things.

    "Don't want innocent people in prison."   Neither do I, but you seem to be very confused about how this works.

    The FBI doesn't decide who goes to prison.   The members of the court do.    Each defendant has a right to a legal defense.

    I swear to Bob, people are dumber every day.
