PHOENIX, May 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — RAADR, Inc. (OTC PINK: RDAR), a technology and software development company that monitors cyber-bullying and social media platforms with artificial intelligence, has said that it believes that its BullyRAADR app could have played a crucial role in PREVENTING the school shooting at Santa Fe High School in that occurred on Friday, May 18th in Santa Fe, Texas.
As more and more details have come out about the horrific school shooting that happened, it has become very apparent that this could have been prevented. Like many of the other shootings in the past, the shooter was bullied, picked on and rejected from social circles. He wore a “trench coat” almost every day to school and several students that were interviewed said he had ongoing issues and was “DIFFERENT,” which is likely why he wasn’t as included with his peers. His social media activity was very alarming and eye-opening as well, and indicated that there were issues with his social life at school.
Through our BullyRAADR platform students are able to anonymously report activity on social media and parents could also be alerted of certain keywords.
“First off my thoughts and prayers go out to all affected from this horrible tragedy. I hate saying it, but these types of school shootings are only going to continue. The shooter was bullied, picked on and rejected. This happens in schools all across the country. And the result of it has too often, sadly, ended in tragedy. Our platforms can be used in a way to intervene before a situation escalates to violence, but we all have to work together to make it happen! We are helping build the bridge between teachers and students to join forces against the negative issues on campus,” said CEO Jacob DiMartino. “We help students become the eyes and ears for administrators to identify the potential dangers that would normally go unnoticed.”
“From the first time I learned that a student had posted online hours before shooting students at the University of California Santa Barbra in May of 2014, I knew there needed to be a way to detect those types of posts and better assess what the threat might actually be so it could be stopped before ever happening. This is what RAADR aims to do,” says CTO Scott Ferreira.
