In class today, we talked about the ways in which the discussions around police violence and brutality are different in this day in age as compared to in the past. One thing we touched on was the newfound ease of recording. Whereas in the past it has been hard to record police brutality, now every person on the street with a cellphone can not only be a witness to the violence but can also disseminate record the incident, share it, and allow thousands of people to be witnesses as well. The ACLU has made this even easier for people with a phone app. The app allows users to record something and then immediately send it to the ACLU. This means that even if a phone is seized by the police, the video will already be sent to the ACLU. Below is the link to the ad for the app as well as the website.
Trigger warning: the video contains a great deal of police violence.
