    In healthcare, physicians are expected to report domestic abuse, child abuse, communicable diseases to local Government authorities even if patients refuse, in order to protect the individuals and the community. To me, Apple decoding the phone belongs to this category of looking at the broader good. If it is going to provide valuable information to improve the safety of people or track the offneders, that takes precedence over anything.

    Under the circumstances, I think Apple should help in decoding this phone-these people are terrorist. I have an Apple laptop, but at this time I refuses to purchase another Apple product. We need to protect Americans in our country.
