Cyrus Vance Jr.: Apple Must Be Good Corporate Citizen in Terror Case


By    |   Sunday, 21 Feb 2016 04:27 PM

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. slammed Apple Sunday, saying that it should be a good corporate citizen and comply with the government's request to help it hack into the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino terrorists.

But Vance, appearing on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York, said he doesn't see that "happening at warp speed."

Apple has created the first warrant-proof devise in history, he said, adding that Apple has concocted "a right to privacy that has never been recognized before.

"Nobody wants to have government snooping in their phone, everybody wants privacy," Vance told host John Catsimatidis. "But when there is proof that someone committed a crime, and evidence of that crime is on the phone, I don't think people using common sense would say that judges shouldn't be able to get that information."

Apple CEO Tim Cook maintains that doing so would allow for the government to snoop on anyone's phone and even could eventually get into the hands of hacker, defeating the purpose of the security feature in the first place.

Vance disagreed.

"When you're that big, when you control that many devices, when you know that criminals use the device, they have a responsibility to act as corporate citizens and help the government do its job," he said.
