An Occupy Wall Street sympathizer created a free app called "I'm Getting Arrested" that lets protesters send out text messages to friends and family when cops swoop in.Haven't been seeing anyone arrested lately for actual protesting. But this nationwide wave of sexual assaults needs to stop. Where's Joe Biden when you need him?
Jason Van Anden, a Brooklyn software developer, said he came up with the idea when a colleague told him his girlfriend was about to get busted at a demonstration.
"He said it would be great if you had an app so that she could quickly broadcast her situation," said Van Anden, 43, a Flatbush dad.
He spent two long nights creating the app, which is available at Android Market. He's working on making it available for the iPhone, too.
Users craft a text message in advance and program a list of recipients. Then, as cops get the bracelets out, they can hit one button and tell everyone on their list that they're in danger of being pinched.

Are You an OWS Moron? There's an App for That
May as well make a few bucks off these imbeciles while the opportunity is there.
But remember, it's a peaceful protest. Where 14-year-olds are being raped.
