Many communities have alert systems where you can sign up for "official" announcements. What if these were opened up so that people could upload "unofficial" announcements as well?

People in remote areas go to rivers and streams several times a day to gather water. Could we use these water routes in remote areas to facilitate information?

Interesting thread! I wonder if we could use face recognition software and allow people to upload photos of perpetrators and receive information on who they are. For example, if you could text the face of someone to a service that then returned information about the person whose face you just shot? There might be privacy issues, but I wonder if it would help encourage victims of crime to snap photos and send them to a central location/database?

Another interesting aspect of your inspiration is the suggestion that there might be a way to incentivize people who might overhear conversations about an intention to commit violence to report it before it happens. What would be necessary to create these incentives for people who may be privy to these conversations? How do we create whistleblowers to help prevent violence before it happens?

This is very powerful, and raises an interesting issue: we should not assume that the victims of violence are aware of the level of the world's concern about their situation. As the video points out, "they are slaves in their own minds" and may make them unaware that they even should say anything about the horror and atrocity that is going on.
