Holy Crap! A self defense app! I think it would work better if she had a gun in her other hand....because threatening language from an official looking character on a phone is so much more effective than 230 grains at 900 fps....
Here's how I see this: This deters no one, save for (possibly) some amped up punk looking for nothing more than to score a quick buck through a purse snatching. For the rest, the point of their attack is pretty much to catch their victim unawares... which they pretty much do. Most smart device cameras don't record fast action to video all that well, so, even if you manage to frame the suspect, the image will almost certainly be an unrecognizable blur. The problem with the "if it saves just one life/ even just 10% mindset is that, unless I'm one of those lives saved, I won't care much... not to mention that this video portrayed the app as STOPPING the crime altogether, NOT as "making it easier to identify the perp" after the crime has been committed.No thanks. I'm more of a "make the dirtbag work (bleed) for it" kind of guy.
