Public shaming has long been controlled by a select few, from the Puritan magistrates who ran town pillories, to the Hollywood execs who force young starlets to hang out with Britney Spears' vajayjay. Bringing disgrace mongering to the everyman: Violation Report.
An open forum to air your gripes with strangers who exhibit "disrespect or general rudeness" (typically while using public transit), VR lets anyone with a camera phone anonymously serve justice by posting a photo of the offender and a brief, oft-humorous description of the transgression, creating a "reference guide of people who deserve to be publicly shamed for their behavior", as if your parents getting divorced wasn't enough. Some highlights:
The Perp: a bearded man with seat-blocking spread legs The Pain: "The bus was full, and I really needed to sit down. And this prince of a guy was "saving" the last available seat for his apparently HUGE testicles."
The Perp: a passed out commuter whose beanie fell into a puddle of his vomit The Pain: "Hey, you dropped your hat...Oh yeah and you dropped your puke also."
The Perp: a horizontal subway rider The Pain: "I don't intend to pass judgement on someone who may be dead, but most people who lay down to die at least choose to do so privately."
The Perp: a hipster The Pain: "Goddamn hipster"
VR's also got manuals outlining the "rules" for ###courteously using roads & walkways####nudebottleeater.jpg### and public transit (with more in the works!!!), plus printable citations you can hand to anyone caught committing an infraction, even if they do think it's their prerogative to be totally Toxic.
