Next time you get pulled over, you may want to open up the ACLU's new app.
Called "Police Tape," this app allows you to record audio and video secretly when you're interacting with the police. Meant to safeguard average folks from police abuse, the app discreetly and securely records interactions the second you hit the record button. The app then disappears and continues recording until you open it again. Once you do, you can choose to upload the audio file directly to the ACLU's servers where it can be stored safely. If you end up getting your phone taken away, your entire interaction will remain on the ACLU's servers, where it can be "further analyzed for civil liberty violations at the user's discretion," according to Phandroid.
Call me paranoid but I can imagine this app proving helpful. There are a few bad apples in many cop squads and I sure as hell would never WANT to come across any of them, but if I did, it'd be nice to be know I have options if my rights have been abused. What do you think about this app?
