Bluetooth spam from the thin Blue line

I never thought I’d see the day, but the Police are getting into spamming videos from their mobiles.

West Yorkshire Police has launched 999tv.org showcasing video features and advice from a number of the region’s police officers, as well as the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

The first video shows how Police are using mobile phones to literally spam any Bluetooth device in the vicinity with a “Crime Prevention Advice” video. It’s like something out of Minority Report.

Stop me if I’m wrong but the average person is going to think “Hell, I’m being spammed with a virus onto my mobile!” and immediately delete the thing, thus negating any positive effect of this initiative.
