The Citizen app is available in NYC and the SF Bay Area. The app is designed to alert you when crime happens nearby with location-based push notifications. But, because the platform is crowdsourced, it exposes all the idiosyncratic definitions of “crime” that you would expect from its voyeuristic users.
Here are some of my favorites. If you have a good one, send it my way and I’ll add it.
We used to have Florida Man stories. Now we have Citizen.
