Boy Uses Camera Phone To ID Attempted Kidnapper
from the some-good-uses-too dept
Munich writes in with a link to a story about a teenager who pulled out his camera phone and snapped a picture of someone trying to lure him into a car, and then snapped another picture of the car’s license plate, which helped the police track down and arrest the guy. Munich asks: “Is this another reason to put a cellphone in your child’s hands?” With all the overhyped scare-tactic stories about people using camera phones for bad purposes, it’s nice to see such stories of it being used for good as well. Once again, it’s just a neutral technology. It can be used for both good and bad purposes.
