New “I’m Getting Arrested” App Released for OWS Protesters

Don’t you just love when technology and civil unrest come together? A new app has just been released for Android titled, I’m Getting Arrested. Providing users with a huge target button they can click once officers start after them for occupying whatever corner of the country they may inhabit, the app will send a preloaded text message to whatever contacts you choose beforehand be it lawyers, family members or friends.

While the there’s clearly a long, analytical essay on the geopolitical importance of smart phones somewhere in this story, I’m just glad we won’t have to listen to  people in Youtube videos screaming to some poor protester at the bottom of a police pile, “TELL US YOUR NAME!”
