2. In case you are not familiar, here's the story in a nutshell - The FBI wants to get info from the San Bernandino terrorists' Iphone. They are asking Apple to create a "backdoor" and unlock this private phone for them. Apple is refusing to do so, as it would basically create a slippery slope for privacy violations. Based on what you know, who's side are you on?
