If someone is planning a crime, the FBI could figure more out about the crime to stop it. The FBI should be allowed to hack into Apple iPhones.
The FBI want to hack into Apple phones. According to Randall G. Holcombe author of Apple CEO was right to defend basics, “Last December, Farook and his wife killed 14 people in a mass shooting in San Bernardino. Because of the privacy features of the iPhone, the FBI could not search Farook’s phone for information about the attack without Apple’s help. When Apple refused, the FBI sought to force the company to help by taking it to court.” If Apple allowed the FBI to hack into iPhones, the FBI could figure out if someone is planning a crime. The FBI only wants to hack into iPhones for safety reasons. Apple should let the FBI hack into iPhones to keep everyone safe from mass shootings, or something else. Many people can be killed if the Apple doesn’t let the FBI hack into iPhones because the FBI can’t see when someone is planning a crime or mass shootings. Without Apple’s help, the FBI can’t track whether or not someone is planning something. If Apple let the FBI hack into the iPhones, they could’ve figured out more about the attack on Farook. With Apple’s help, the FBI can stop a lot more crimes.
Apple believes people with iPhones have a right to their privacy. “Apple phones have features that protect the privacy of the information on them, and the Fourth Amendment guarantees people this right to privacy. Americans have the right to possess information without having to share it with the government. And Apple has the right to provide products that help Americans protect this right. Yes, the Fourth Amendment also says the government has a right to search personal property if it has a warrant and probable cause. But it does not say that third parties, like a technology company, can be forced to aid the government in its searches.” (Flora, 2016) Apple doesn’t want to let the FBI hack into iPhones for people’s privacy. If Apple lets the FBI hack into iPhones, the people don’t have their Fourth Amendment. Everyone has the right to the Fourth Amendment. People should be allowed to choose whether or not they want the FBI to hack into their iPhone. The rights of the people are important in a situation like this because if the people don’t want someone to hack into their phones, they should get the right to say they don’t want someone to hack into them. The people’s Fourth Amendment is their right, and nobody can take it from them. Everyone has the right to their own privacy.
If someone is planning a crime, the FBI can see details about the crime. “However, the issues raised by this controversy have not been resolved and 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. Basic American rights were at stake, and the purpose of law is to protect people’s rights. Consider what the FBI asked Apple to do. The FBI did not ask Apple to turn over information it already had. This was nothing like a search warrant.”(Holcombe, 2016) The FBI is only trying to keep the people safe. Without Apple’s help, many people could get hurt or even die. The FBI isn’t trying to get the information it already has, but more to it. If Apple would just let the FBI hack into their iPhones, more people wouldn’t be at the risk of getting hurt. The FBI wanting to hack into Apple’s iPhones is nothing like a search warrant. The FBI is just trying to keep the people with iPhones safe. The FBI doesn’t want information it already has, but different information to hack into their phones.
Apple should let the FBI hack into their iPhones. To keep people safe, the FBI wants to hack into Apple iPhones. Everyone has a right to their own privacy. The FBI can find more about a crime to stop it.
