Protect Your Bubble has identified two recent incidents where the Smartphone’s camera has been used by law enforcement.
ATLANTA, Ga (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
According to a September 2012 from Pew Research Center, forty-four percent of American adults now own smartphones. These mobile gadgets are typically kept on one’s person at all times. They’re entertaining, they keep users in communication with work and loved ones, and they provide navigation, and so on. But, they can often serve as evidence through the phone’s video feature. With almost half of all adults in the U.S. now carrying smartphones, chances are that at any given moment someone can easily capture footage. Protect Your Bubble has identified two recent incidents where the smartphone’s camera has been used by law enforcement.
Dangerous Drivers – An unsafe driver was caught by authorities in Cleveland this September, thanks to the quick reaction of a school bus driver. According to witnesses, the 32 year old woman drove on the sidewalk every day to avoid waiting for the bus stop. In an effort to avoid a potentially harmful situation, the bus driver was able to capture a video of the incident on the cell phone. Then, the bus driver contacted the police department to share the video and alert them of the recurring incident. The tip paid off, because the officer was waiting for the dangerous driver the next time it happened and caught her red handed.
Defacing Picasso – In June 2012, an eyewitness caught an act of vandalism on camera at the Menil Collection in Houston. While taking a video of Picasso’s Woman in a Red Chair, the stunned museum patron watched in horror as a man in a suit walked up to the painting and began to draw on the original painting. Museum officials and police are analyzing the video as part of the investigation.
