The app acts as a social network, offering all users to map police stations. When messages about a particular post cannot be delivered, the corresponding image will gradually fade, and disappear.
«Why should we tolerate bullying due to the fact that he decided to dress as we like? The Internet is full of videos where the police beats up and humiliates women. The police must protect citizens, not harass them,» say the authors.
