ANGL App, LLC Announces Release of the First Crowdsourced Safety App in The World
New York, NY (PRUnderground) February 22nd, 2021
ANGL App, LLC is announcing the release of its ANGL Safety App, which issues emergency alerts when people feel unsafe during an encounter with the police.
Developer Rodney Stallworth says pressing the ANGL alert button will send a pre-populated text message to the user’s ANGL Safety Circle: ten contacts the user pre-selected, notifying them of the location, situation and a link to a live-stream feed. The app will also send an alert to everyone on the network within a one-mile radius and invite them to also a be a virtual witness via live-stream.
The automated message can say, “I am being stopped by the police and I do not feel safe. Please follow the link to the live-stream. Your virtual presence could help ensure the police are on their best behavior and potentially save my life.” The automated message can also be customized to describe your current encounter.
“What this does is send an alert to an ‘angel’ to assist you by being a video-recording witness, or by being a valuable video witness and presenting the truth from all ‘angles’,” Stallworth says.
Additionally, the app is designed to fight police brutality and racial violence against minorities. “When George Floyd was killed, I felt helpless, hopeless. I wanted to help. I didn’t know how or what I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to do something. I liquidated $23,000 out my 401(k) to help get the app to market because when Trayvon Martin was killed, I instantly thought that could be my 15-year-old son,” Carmichael says. “When Sandra Bland was killed, I cried at the thought of that being my wife. And if all those people had not been right there on the street corner videotaping as George Floyd was detained and killed, America would not have known that story.”
