    The FBI needs access to phones with proper procedures followed. To lock them out gives terrorist and criminals a free ride.

    No more wire taps...no more being able to track calls...

    Should this be allowed?

    The only "example" I could think of would be if gun manufacturers could manufacture guns with no ballistics.
    One thing about technology, there's always a way around it. They'll be able to trap a line if they want, it just won't be as easy, especially on mass levels.

    How unfortunate. I just want to keep encrypted phones away from bad people. I want everyone else to be able to have one.

    Private conversations away from listening devices and hand delivered written docs are also hard to eavesdrop.

    People have no obligation to facilitate government surveillance. A law requiring such facilitation would violate the fifth amendment.

    Conservatives are ridiculous sometimes. Not listening to peoples conversations doesn't give anyone a free ride.

    Should it be illegal to have a private conversation where no one can hear it?

    Yeah man, you might be planning something. We have to be super paranoid and treat every person in the world as a criminal at all times. It's the conservative way to handle things.

    I really do not think this has anything to do with consumers, but with apple and google getting sick and tired of getting harassed by the government.
