Due to the unknown, it’s essential to separate the people from the problem and simply be prepared in case of possible escalation.
Samscloud helps ensure that citizens have their encounters securely captured in the cloud and retrievable in case evidence is ever needed. If escalation is required, the encounter can be routed and observed live by advocacy groups and your personal contacts to monitor the situation in an effort to resolve conflict without violence.
Samscloud is introducing innovative tools to help citizens address the issues surrounding police accountability. Under the First Amendment, taking photographs and recording a video of your encounter is your right. No officer may confiscate, delete, or demand to view your pictures or videos without a warrant under any circumstances. The truth is good cops don’t mind.

Police brutality and the publicizing of unwarranted, excessive, and often illegal use of force against civilians by U.S. police officers are rising.
