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!”
