The Washington Post:
FBI Director James B. Comey sharply criticized Apple and Google on
Thursday for developing forms of smartphone encryption so secure
that law enforcement officials cannot easily gain access to
information stored on the devices — even when they have valid
I can’t think of a better endorsement of Apple and iOS.
“Apple will become the phone of choice for the pedophile,” said
John J. Escalante, chief of detectives for Chicago’s police
department. “The average pedophile at this point is probably
thinking, I’ve got to get an Apple phone.”
Well, that didn’t take long. An even stronger endorsement. The pedophile card is pretty much the last resort for these law enforcement types who feel entitled to the content of our digital devices. Fear mongering with bogeymen and an appeal to base emotions.
