Open Source Policing

Is this perhaps one answer to open source war/criminality?

Waleli's idea is to harness the power of picture messaging (MMS) to catch the crooks. A witness sends a photo or video from the cameraphone using MMS-witness which then goes straight into a crime database.


Given that Garner has estimated that there are 295 million cameraphones already out there, that's an awful lot of potential crime scene photographers.
