CNET Editor Review: “I’m Getting Arrested” apps for Android phones
http://download.cnet.com/I-m-Getting-Arrested/3000-10440_4-75593164.html

The apps lets you quickly notify your family, friends, and crack legal team (if you have one) of your situation with a single tap of your finger. Just initially enter a custom message and some SMS-ready numbers to contact in the event of your arrest.

Only question is, why no Twitter or Facebook support? Considering it was inspired by a grassroots movement, it just makes sense, no? Built-in social media would not only expand the app’s reach to potentially large numbers of friends and loved ones, but it would also serve as a bullhorn for rallying support after each arrest.
