Teen Siblings Create 'Five-O' App To Track And Combat Police Brutality
With all the madness still raging on the streets of #Ferguson in the wake of Michael Brown's (now confirmed) murder, a trio of Georgia siblings have taken matters into their own hands and put their programming prowess to the test. Ima, Caleb and Asha Christian (of Decatur) have developed a Waze-styled phone app (appropriately titled) Five-O that allows users to track and combat cases of police brutality in realtime by providing a platform for victims to gauge the militancy of police in the area, create police reports on the fly, look up and be sure of their rights in any given altercation, not to mention find a local station if need be.
How 'bout a round of applause for these barely adolescent civil engineers, who are what they can to prevent any further slayings by a uniformed hand. They even provide folks with the ability to compliment a police department in the rare occasion that they've actually garnered that sentiment. After all, there's a pretty clear need for some reinstalled faith in the Jimmies and Jakes these days. But only if they're actually providing the safe haven we pay them to preserve. Until then, please stay safe out in these streets folks and keep those on the ground in Ferguson in your thoughts and prayers. You can download the Christian's Five-O app on Google today and head over to Buzzfeed for the full scoop.
