Domestic violence happens more often that it should, and Justifeyed wants to add a layer of protection from this that is currently missing. Once the altercation began the victim could have started recording what was happening, and immediately gotten it to authorities. The officers, having seen what was happening, would have been prepared for what they were going into. The instant video feed Justifeyed provides is a life line for the victim and significant information for emergency personnel. Life saving information is so much more valuable when it can be shared instantly. Support and donate to Justifeyed now to give every domestic violence victim a chance to take back control, and help change lives.
