Do you want another terrorist attack to happen anywhere just because the FBI cannot hack into phones? The FBI should be able to hack iphones to stop terrorists.
The FBI should be able to hack iphones so they can stop terrorist attacks. According to Whitt Flora author of Apple's refusal to cooperate harms FBI's counterterrorism efforts “Our political leaders have been slow to heed those warnings, but now, hopefully, they are starting to realize that what could be World War III has already started.” “The bombings in Brussels, the European Union’s headquarters city, put all of Europe on a red alert.” “And U.S. intelligence experts have warned for years that there may be several thousand Islamic terrorists embedded in America awaiting similar orders.”(2016) Everybody complains to the government when a terrorist attack happens, but whenever the government (aka the FBI) tries to do anything, they get shut down. There are already terrorists in America waiting for the right time to kill someone, so if the FBI has access to their phones, then they could stop them before they do it. If Apple gave the FBI permission, or a new software to see into their phones, then the FBI should be able to stop terrorists before anything can happen.
The FBI should not be able to have Apple void their product rights, unless it is a time of need. According to Randall G. Holcombe author of Apple CEO was right to defend basics “Regardless of whether the software the FBI wanted Apple to create would create problems for phone owners, forcing Apple to create such software would have violated the rights of the company and its stakeholders.” “War powers in effect during the two World Wars gave the president substantial power to force corporations to redirect their resources toward producing output to aid the war effort. Those war powers were repealed after the wars ended. The FBI wanted to claim similar powers during normal times, without an act of Congress.” (2016) The FBI should be able to hack iphones because nobody wants someone, especially in America, to die from a terrorist attack. These people that think the FBI shouldn’t be able to hack iphones will be mad at the government for not doing anything about a terrorist that blew up their family. I bet you that they will start to protest against the government for doing nothing about the terrorists in America. The whole entire world may be going into WW III with the Middle East, so the FBI should be able to stop the terrorists before they do anything. Now, my question is: Would you want another terrorist attack like 911 or the Boston Marathon bombing to happen again because the FBI can’t see what the terrorists are doing? Over 3,000 people died in the 911 and Boston Marathon attacks. So would you rather have that many people die, just so you could have privacy on your iphone?
When the government needed help from companies, alot of them jumped in to help, so Apple should help the FBI. According to Whitt Flora author of Apple's refusal to cooperate harms FBI's counterterrorism efforts “Their mission: to make America “the arsenal of democracy.” They accomplished that goal in short order by ending the manufacturing of civilian goods at the nation’s largest industrial plants and quickly converting those facilities to wartime production.”(2016) According to Whitt Flora author of Apple's refusal to cooperate harms FBI's counterterrorism efforts “Ford, for instance, converted its sprawling vehicle factory at Willow Run to producing bombers, including some 24,000 B-24 Liberators.” (2016) Companies that produced civilian goods switched over to help America in a time of need. I think Apple should help the FBI out with their phones. Ford stopped producing profit to build airplanes for the Military. Did that affect them? No it didn’t. After WW II, Ford went back to producing civilian products. Chrysler built tanks for the army. Both of these companies are still in business today doing just fine. Apple makes over $18 billion a year, so they should not crumble from a few of their customers not buying their products.
The FBI should be able to hack into phones to keep a terrorist from bombing some place in the world. When the government needed help from companies, alot of them jumped in to help, so Apple should help the FBI. Civilian companies, like Ford and Chrysler, helped out the government, but they stopped producing goods for their customers. Did this affect them? No it didn’t. Ford for instance didn’t loose any customers to affect them at all after they switched to military products for WW II. Ford is still going strong to this day. The FBI should not be able to have Apple void their product rights, unless it is a time of need. This is a time of need. We don’t know if we will be in WW III any time soon, so it is best to stop the terrorists in America before they get the order to bomb anything.
