Humans of Coronado – Apple v. FBI

Humans of Coronado is a photo series where we “bump” into residents and visitors around the “island,” completely unplanned and unfiltered.  It was inspired by Humans of New York. Next time you are out and about around town, you may just find yourself part of the next HOC series!

This segment of Humans of Coronado concerns the heated national debate regarding San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook’s iPhone.  The FBI asserts that the information on Farook’s iPhone could potentially include terrorist contacts he has made within the United States and abroad.  Apple is opposing the directive by a California judge, ordering Apple to assist the FBI in breaking into the locked mobile device of the late San Bernardino shooter.

What is your opinion regarding the Apple versus FBI controversy?  Should Apple be forced to comply with the judge’s directive to assist the FBI, forcing Apple to create a “backdoor” to bypass the security of its own system, or should Apple willingly assist the FBI?  Does the potential importance of information on Farook’s iPhone trump Apple’s assertion that they do not want to willingly create a gateway into Farook’s iPhone, which could then allow access to the information stored on the iPhone of any user?
