Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

What a true act of a patriot looks like

Tim Cook PatriotFrom the New York Times:

Why Apple Is Right to Challenge an Order to Help the F.B.I.

It is understandable that federal investigators want to unlock an iPhone used by one of the attackers who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif., in December. And it’s understandable that the government would turn to Apple for help. But Apple is doing the right thing in challenging the federal court ruling requiring that it comply.

Tim Cook deserves all our support.

  1. I disagree. The attacker has been confirmed a terrorist. If there is anything in his phone that could save lives, it’s worth it. The only way to know is to look at it. In my book, terrorists don’t have rights once they kill people. If Apple wanted to prevent a backdoor free-for-all they could charge a fee, say $20k per case. Hmmm, a new Apple service, “iCrack”. Available at the genius bar near you. :-).

  2. Fear will decide what will be forced upon us. Bigger government means more intrusions into our lives and less freedoms. You just have to ask yourself is it a good tradeoff to give your rights to gov’t employees/politicians who have proven to be power hungry self centered individuals.
