Orion Martin is one of the founders of a new technology in development called SideKik. What is Sidekik? Sidekik is a mobile application which will perform two key actions simultaneously.
First, Sidekik will activate your smartphone’s audio and video recording devices and begin streaming the data to a secure facility in fact to multiple secure servers. Next, Sidekik will initiate a video call and connect you with an attorney who will represent you in whatever situation you find yourself.
Why is Sidekik Important? When you are in a critical situation, such as being pulled over by law enforcement, the balance of power is often against you. The fact is that most people don’t know their rights or how to enforce them. In addition, without a record of your encounter with law enforcement, the question of what happened during the encounter devolves into your word against that of the officer, which normally results with courts and public opinion in favor of the officer, regardless of what actually occurred.
Though many people have begun recording their interactions with law enforcement, the recording is stored on the recording device, which is sometimes confiscated. Sidekik solves both of these problems. With the activation of the Sidekik app, your smartphone’s audio and video recorders will begin streaming to a secure server.
If the officer has behaved outside of their bounds and doesn’t want evidence of that misconduct available to you, there is simply nothing the officer can do. The audio and video has been stored and timestamped securely, and can be retrieved by you at your convenience.
