It's all wrestling, and nowadays you'd be quite gullable to believe half the stuff printed online...
Don't need to look up the reference. I would've said chase the rabbit but, to each their own.
They do not have full control of that cell phone - It's been proven repeatedly as have their "methods" of entry.
I'm really good friends with a forensics guy at the FBI and guess what? They literally have to brute-force the Iphones for entry...Even the NSA doesn't have direct access...And on a black phone? They actually just give up and drop them in evidence bags.
Apple also isn't being pushed for snitching - They're being pushed because of the legitimate backlog of cold cases that exist purely because the governing authority couldn't access the phones.
I'm not gullable, actually - Far from considering I have to be...That being said, this isn't NCIS, this isn't CSI or whatever it's called - There are no tinfoil hats in the real world (unless you make them yourselves) - The truth is that since IOS7, the FBI hasn't had backdoor access and Apple even admits that in their initial blog.
