    New app not yet released but causing controversy. It is designed to access crime stats and help you plan your route to avoid areas that have a history of increased crime activity.

    Well guess what? The NAACP is pitching a fit. There is absolutely nothing racially motivated about the system. It simply analyzes actual occurrences of crime and organizes it in a useable format. It does not have an official name yet but it is being nicknamed the "Avoid the Ghetto" app.

    If it has not been done already, there will soon be an app that alerts you to addresses based on the sexual predator registry.

    What do think? Is it racial profiling or is a useful tool?

    Does it have an "Avoid Occupy" feature too?

    Why in the hell don't the justice system just go in and clean up the high crime areas. Thast what the hell we pay our taxes for. Not to hid and dodge the crap and expect to live with it. These kind of excuses sickens me. Bill

    Listened to the Neal Boortz show today and he was all over this like white on rice.He was giving the NAACP gal out in Texas who is pitching a fit and calling it racist down the road about it. I've come to the conclusion that EVERYTHING white people do or say is now a target for the race card. Doesn't matter what it is. Well guess what.....we just need to play the race card right back. Minorities/liberals/NAACP/ACLU/Muslims/Illegals/environmentalists are now running the country and shaping our domestic policy. It's time the working people take back our country. If you're on any kind of government assistance you shouldn't be able to vote. The only exception being social security. As for the "avoid the hood" app...go for it. Let'em complain.


    The time has come for the fit to hit the shan. Enough.
