“its possible - we don’t know” and on that, FBI wants Apple to build in a way to break the encryption on all iPhones - risking the privicy of all iPhone users. #SanBernardinoMassacre 

FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. He cited the San Bernardino case as an example of how encryption is affecting counterterrorism efforts - but fully admits that they don't know whats on the phone and that 'its 'possible' there is crucial pieces of evidence.

I have been saying it for over two decades, 'privacy and tech is a slippery slope'. We allow our privacy and liberty to be eroded, it makes it that much easier for the next time to slide deeper and deeper into a world where we have no privacy with tech. 

On top of that, its a horrible idea for Apple to build in back doors that break encryption. This will give hackers the ability to break though that backdoor. More harm will be done than good. 

Personally, i don't want fear to be the reason my government ever removes liberty. The FBI request is more than taking away protections to our electronic privacy, its that slippery slope I talked about decades ago coming true and it will end with no our lives having no electronic privacy. We need to think about this the same way our founding fathers did when they defined what 'liberty' should be for the people of this country.
