Ring removes Request for Assistance from Neighbors app in a further shift away from law enforcement assistance

Ring is just about done playing Robin to law enforcement’s Batman.

For every amusing Ring Video Doorbell video showing a bear dancing in the snow or a mailman pirouetting to the Broadway show tune in his head, there are videos of people stealing packages, vandalizing homes, or committing other petty crimes. The video collected by these popular front door cameras has been a potential crime-fighting bonanza for local law enforcement.
