A California-based group has distributed and trained some Ferguson residents on how to use body cameras to record police.

Copwatch raised more than $6,000 to purchase 110 of the small devices to give to residents over the weekend, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported (http://bit.ly/1uswQXx).

this is smart. The police won’t wear them? okay, then the residents will wear them and still catch you doing dirt

"14-year-old Parkview High School Freshman, Caleb Christian was concerned about the number of incidents of police abuse in the news.  Still, he knew there were many good police officers in various communities, but had no way of figuring out which communities were highly rated and which were not.  

So, together with his two older sisters: Parkview High School senior Ima Christian, and Gwinnett School of Math, Science, and Technology sophomore, Asha Christian, they founded a mobile app development company– Pinetart Inc., under which they created a mobile app called Five-O.

Five-O, allows citizens to enter the details of every interaction with a police officer.  It also allows them to rate that officer in terms of courtesy and professionalism and provides the ability to enter a short description of what transpired.  These details are captured for every county in the United States. Citizen race and age information data is also captured.

Additionally, Five-O allows citizens to store the details of each encounter with law enforcement; this provides convenient access to critical information needed for legal action or commendation.”

I designed and printed these to distribute when I was in NYC yesterday

Anyone, feel free to download this and distribute your own copies (especially at protests or demonstrations where many people will be walking by!) I added in the feeding America link because regardless of what people think about what’s going on in Ferguson, they should take the initiative to get involved in their own communities.

these can be distributed as full pages or cut out into individuals

you can click and drag it from tumblr or download it from my deviantart

This vine got taken down.

I think that’s fucking important to note, that this vine got taken down. I saw it and it languished in my drafts for a while because it fell through the cracks.

Remember this. Remember that they’re taking down protest videos. Remember that they’re trying to control the narrative. Remember, keep posting, keep sharing, keep talking about Ferguson. Don’t let the story die.

remember

I’ve said it before I’ll say it again, remember to back up these videos on multiple places, not just cellphones/harddrives but also dropbox, external harddrives, and if possible upload to multiple platforms (vine, g+, facebook, instagram as well as tumblr). If they get taken down reupload and if you don’t have access to external harddrives and you need help backing up your videos add that to description when uploading. As a community we need to take responsibility for keeping these records when others are being censored.

Not just another phone case. This is the new generation of polaroid camera. This simple design sends a photo to the case over Bluetooth. The current version takes about 50 seconds from photo to printed paper and can only hold one piece of paper at a time. But the planned consumer version will hold 10-30 sheets of paper and take fewer than 30 seconds to print.
