For years I’ve been seeing people post about not sharing shooters names, I decided to create software that will automatically hide the name/face of the shooter and prevent them from becoming famous, I'm Izzy with DeFamer AMA
Edit: thank you to everyone who is helping support our kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/defamer/defamer-preventing-criminals-from-becoming-celebrities?ref=discovery&term=defamer its been a long one guys! I've been answering questions for 4 hours now! I appreciate all the positive (and some negative) feedback! I hope you guys had wonderful Holidays, I'm off to get some rest.
When I was younger I saw a man on TV that had committed a horrible violent crime at a movie theater. I still to this day remember his face very vividly. I thought about it when I got older and I realized I could still remember that mans face, his eye shape, his name, his hair color. Everything. It bothered me a lot.
It bothered me so much I started looking into ways this can be prevented. How could I avoid seeing people like that and giving them space in my brain rent free forever? There are a few options, but all of them virtually beg the media outlets to not show the face (and they still do) or other slow non functioning methods to remove the assailants face and name. I realized that NOBODY had come up with a way to resolve this.
I was laying down one night and I realized that if there was a way to remove all the millions of photos of criminals from the internet, new and old, it would require an army. That's when the idea for DeFamer hit me, we would need an actual mass group of people to help with this project.
The idea is actually really simple, people right click on an image of an alleged criminal and select "Tag as alleged criminal" then it blurs the persons face. You can highlight text and select "Name of assailant" so on and so fourth. It will then begin to blur the image for people across the extension/app.
I'm truly passionate about this project and I'm more than excited to answer any questions you may have, please feel free to ask me anything about the project.
I have been working on DeFamer for approximately 4 years, the initial idea was a reverse image search but that proved to be way more complicated than it appears.

This is my sincere attempt to remove the fame and notoriety people think they obtain from doing heinous violent acts.
