Washington, DC (TFC) – Eliminating the need for cops sounds like something out of a fairy tale, but it is exactly what Peacekeeper 2.0 seeks to do. The idea is pretty simple, instead of calling a cop who will show up and kill the wrong person, you send out your signal and other people with the app respond. It’s a blow to the omnipresent police state.
Peacekeeper has been in existence for some time. The original app had some limitations that will be rectified in the new version. Peackeeper is conducting a crowdfunding campaign right now on indiegogo. What’s the pitch?
Emergency protection is a vital service that we all need. But let’s face it – most of us know that the government is not able to protect us.
When seconds count, police are just minutes away. That’s why we are determined to create a system that actually puts the odds in your favor.
Some individual police are heroes. But the institution as a whole is broken. It’s bureaucratic, has the wrong incentives, and is too slow to be there when you need help.
We deserve better. We need better.
That’s why we’re building Peacekeeper. If the idea of a decentralized, fast, agile protection system that does an end-run around the State is something that appeals to you, contribute now and help us turn this vision into a reality.
Here’s the video pitch:

Would it be better to have your friend that is a psychologist show up to help you with a disoriented parent, or a cop who may just decide to kill them?
The very fact that this app is entering its second generation shows exactly how much faith has been lost in law enforcement, and how ready the United States is for a change. When asked what he hoped to accomplish with the new app, Cory Drummond said one word:
