The ongoing protests and escalating police activity in Ferguson, Missouri have inspired three Georgia teenagers to try effect change. They’ve created the app “Five-O,” which allows people to document interactions with law enforcement and rate police in communities across the country. 

"We’ve been hearing about the negative instances in the news, for instance most recently the Michael Brown case, and we always talk about these issues with our parents," Ima Christian told Business Insider. “They always try to reinforce that we should focus on solutions. It’s important to talk about the issues, but they try to make us focus on finding solutions. That made us think why don’t we create an app to help us solve this problem.”
