Now You Can Report Terrorists Using Your iPhone

The Pennsylvania police has released an smartphone app that allows you to report terrorists using a picture or written message. “See Something, Send Something” appears to be based on Philly’s existing “IWatch Philadelphia” app for crime. While I’m all for public vigilance, this app seems like a recipe for racial profiling. Just imagine the surreptitious iPhone pictures people will begin taking of suspicious-looking foreigners, not to mention the useless deluge the state’s Criminal Intelligence Center will have to pore through. I can’t tell you how it works yet–it’s hasn’t yet appeared in the old app store. [ABC 6]
