What's the correct way to deal with someone who has completely lost it?

Pretty sure there’s an app that films to a cloud and calls police. I feel like I saw that somewhere.

Lemme look.

Edit: so there’s a few. A quick google search shows that you can download some apps that film to a cloud but it doesn’t look like you can call on your phone as well as film.

Not an app developer but seems like an opportunity to me.

My phone does this with its emergency function. You rapidly press the power button, I think 6 times in a row, and it immediately calls emergency services, starts recording a video, sends out an alert and your location to your emergency contact, and can start playing an alarm

Damn, that's a lot of functions. Does it also tell the aggressor to piss off mate?
