There’s been so much controversy on both sides regarding whether Apple should hack into the San Bernardino terrorist’s phone. We’d like to know what you think. Should they open the phone or not?
NYPD’s Terror Chief Weighs In:
The city’s top anti-terror cop is taking the feds’ fight with Apple personally.
The government wants the tech giant to open the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino terrorist killers — and, “The giant parade of terribles, which is if we get into this terrorist phone and we find out that there’s a message in it that tips us off to other terrorists and a plot here in New York City, that’s on me, George, so that’s important,” NYPD terror chief John Miller said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday.
“To suggest the government will seize everybody’s health records, go through all of their private information and give it away to the world, is absurd,” Miller added.
“This phone, a [now-]government-owned phone, that belonged to two dead people who have no privacy rights who are at the middle of a terrorist investigation where the information in that phone could save lives, I don’t know why we’re still talking about this.”
“This case is entirely overstated.”
