Apple, cops and grandstanding
Re “Profit drives Apple’s resistance to unlocking phone, U.S. claims” (Page 9A, Feb. 20): Invariably the most politically liberal leaders in government, who have never worn the law enforcement badge, are the ones most energetic in telling their constituents how cops should do their work. At the same time Apple is refusing to help law enforcement gather intelligence about one of the state’s all-time most shocking mass murders, state Sen. Mark Leno is rallying his bill to expose the cops’ personnel (and personal) records insinuating, of course, that law enforcement executives cannot be trusted to do an honest investigation of misconduct charges. And during all this madness, citizens wonder why quality police recruiting programs nationwide are going begging and lowering standards.
