Should the FBI be able to hack iPhones
Would you want someone hacking your phone? This a serious debate right now. Apple Should let the FBI hack iPhones to protect America from terrorist.
The FBI did not ask Apple to turn over information it already had. According to Newsela.com “This was nothing like a search warrant. Apple never had the information the FBI was seeking. Instead, the FBI wanted Apple to write new software to unlock Syed Farook's iPhone. The FBI wasn’t asking apple to give out information. They wanted these things to change so then could so it was easy, fast, and simple. They wanted this so if they heard about a terrorist they could do something to decrease the chances of something happening quickly.
The U.S. government has no right to force anybody to provide it services against their will. According to Newsela.com “Basic American rights were at stake, and the purpose of law is to protect people’s rights.” The 4th amendment states “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” So the FBI were breaking this rule. That’s why this issue is such a big deal.
FBI backed off because it was able to hack into the phone, but the issues raised by this controversy have not been resolved. According to Apple’s CEO “We should expect a replay in the future; that’s why it’s important to understand why Apple was right to take the principled position it did. The FBI could hack the Apple phones, but they didn’t want to take it too far to start more problems for themselves.
Apple Should let the FBI hack iPhones to protect America from terrorist. This is why I stand were I do.
