Police Brutality? There's an app for that

Download the FREE Mobile Justice CA App, available on Android and iOS and empowered by the ACLU of California:

https://www.mobilejusticeca.org

* Remember that you have the right to peacefully assemble; the right to protest in traditional "public forums" such as streets, sidewalks and parks so long as you aren't blocking traffic; and the right to photograph or videotape law enforcement. 

 

Called Mobile Justice CA, the app uploads all video footage as it’s being captured to servers owned by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Even if the phone is destroyed, the video will survive.

The app was co-released Friday by the ACLU of Southern California and the Oakland-based Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, and it’s available now for iOS and Android devices.

Mobile Justice CA does more than automatically upload video. It includes a “witness” button, which a user can press to notify other app users within a three-mile radius that they are observing a police interaction. It also lets users file written reports with a local ACLU office and includes versions of the ACLU’s “Know Your Rights” guides for photographers, protesters, and citizens.
