Rand Paul, Justin Amash and Judge Napolitano on Apple

While the top Presidential candidates are for the power grab by the government over Apple or totally wishy washy not wanting to offend their supporters; however, their are those who truly support the fourth amendment and have vocally against the move.

What is extraordinary about the request is that they’re asking for something that doesn’t exist,” Paul said. “They’re asking them to create something. It is almost as if they’re conscripting Apple to be a police agency.”

Michigan Congressman Justin Amash posted the following on Facebook: The government’s demand that Apple undermine the safety and privacy of all its customers is unconscionable and unconstitutional. Thank you, Tim Cook, for defending our rights. I will do everything I can to support your efforts to protect the public. Stand strong.

Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst,  Judge Andrew Napolitano said he applauds Apple CEO Tim Cook for “defending the Constitution” by resisting a United States magistrate judge’s order that Apple aid the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in breaching Apple encryption that protects the customers.

Napolitano explains:

But, there are serious problems with forcing a private person to work against their will. That’s called slavery. If the FBI wants to go out and hire people, even hire them away from Apple, it has every ability to do that. But, to force Apple to do something against its will, at its own expense, is prohibited by the Constitution.
