Alleged terrorist who is really just a scapegoat because of his heritage. Who also didn't have much of anything on the phone, and had very little if anything to do with the shooting. Take it from someone who was around when it happened, what the media changed the story to is not what happened at all.
Also location data is already stored on Apple servers and easy to get too and Apple has access to it. Requiring Apple to break into a locked phone owned by someone else is quite different.

Google indexes everything, including torrents, hosts illegal content, ... but hey it's a US company so why would they bother going after those, lets just hunt down index servers that don't host anything lol, so much easier. US lobbying and crap laws.

In one situation apple received a sizeable bump in perceived consumer favorability, while the other one, not so much. They only side with consumer privacy rights when it coincidently fits their corporate image. Rotten to the core baby.

The copyright infringement I'm guessing it's just the fact that he was the "owner" of the site and that's why they hit him with it, realistically it's not like they can charge server operators, end users like us etc, he's the only one they can get to so there gonna hit him with everything they can to show how much of a serious crime piracy is.

They better have, otherwise this is going to be yet another Dotcom-scale incident, and we know the DoJ likely will be regretting that for a while.

As a warning, while I have taken a specialty class in digital copyright, IANAL, but regarding the actual reason why they aren't prosecuted, that is actually tied to the verdict in Sony v Universal. In order for the creators of a technology to be held accused of secondary contributory liability, the technology must not have substantial use of the technology for non-infringing purposes.

Welp, back to TPB it is. :/

Although on the upside, this proves how futile it is for torrent sites to honor DMCA takedown requests as KAT did.

Also on the plus side, glad another site full of censorship has died. Way too many rules there.
