  1. ACLU;
    ”Law enforcement may not commandeer innocent third parties into becoming its undercover agents, its spies, or its hackers. If the government prevails, then this case will be the first of many requiring companies to degrade the security and to undermine the trust in their products so essential to privacy in the digital age.”

  2. I sent this to Mr Trumps campaign and a version of it to Mrs Clinton’s.

    “Please read this letter to Federal Magistrate Pym from Salihin Kondoker. His wife was shot three times by the San Bernadino murderers. She survived and now she and Salihin are opposed to the Executive branch DOJ/FBI power grab over American citizens privacy afforded but the Bill of Rights. They are Muslim!

    Mr. Trump needs to support the Constitution and a American company in Apple, and not a Korean company run by a convicted criminal.
