Just the app I was looking for
I have family in law enforcement and get angry at the generalized hatred of cops that high profile incidents can cause. However, the idea that "if you do nothing wrong you have nothing to fear" is patently false. One reviewer said that only "douchbags" have "encounters with the law." This is wrong in so many ways. First, legal is not always morally right. Was it douchbags who broke laws to end salary? Second, verified stories show admitted abuse from mall cops all the way up to drone strikes. Be cool and you'll have better odds, yes, but many citizens who do nothing wrong get killed or maimed in "tragic accidents" that could have been averted if the officers or soldiers hyped up on adrenaline saw they were being recorded and decided to use appropriate instead of excessive force. Less oversight = more abuse!
This app can protect cops too because peer pressure to maul a suspected perp might get short circuited by one cop tapping another on the shoulder, pointing to the camera and muttering, "Great, ACLU has video of this now. Get this douchbag a medic." The fewer tragic accidents we have, the safer all cops are in doing their jobs.
The protesters rights section is interesting and useful. Four stars until this app works in all states and viewable real-time by everyone.
Wow! This app is worthless!
I tried to use this app to report an incident that happened in Sonora CA where the police there profiled a group of motorcycle riders who were minding their own business. You cannot use the app! It asks you to put in information but does not give you any way to enter the information. But you can’t go past the page to the next step until you enter something! You have no way on the page to enter any information!! If this was done by the ACLU then PLEASE fix this app!!!! We need this bad! Especially in today’s political climate of stepping on the freedoms of the marginalized people!!!
Fix the glitch
It crashes when changes are requested. I receive notifications the location map doesn’t show the location. I love the concept. You all need to fix these glitches, please.🤷🏾♀️🙄
