Judge wants Apple to help hack into San Bernardino shooters’ phone. Tim Cook not a fan of the idea « Hot Air

From the article: 
Break out the Privacy vs Security bumper stickers, folks. The battle is on yet again and this time it's dragging some big players into the steel cage. Having failed to gain the needed information from the cell phone of the San Bernardino terrorists, a judge has ordered Apple to open up the phone for Uncle Sam and see what connections to other Islamic terrorists on American soil might be found inside.

Pretty interesting stuff here.  Where is the line between protection of privacy and protection of the nation?  Difficult questions and no easy answers.  Always slippery slope considerations.
