Unlike you, I actually read Mr. Bah's complaint.
1. The piece of paper Apple gave the police - a driving learner's permit - is NOT an identification card. It is printed in bold letters on it: NOT VALID FOR IDENTIFICATION PURPOSES. I know it is so because I live in New York City, and I have seen driving learner's permits. Driver's learner permits are issued by New York State. The NYPD did NOT accept the learner's permit as valid ID, as they are prohibited by law from doing so.
2. Apple stated - through their security company, a.k.a. their designated agent acting with apparent authority on their behalf - that there is no surveillance video available to identify the perpetrator. It turns out that there was surveillance video available all along.
3. While Mr. Bah was in NYPD custody, after his arrest, Apple's surveillance video enabled the NYPD detectives to determine on the spot that Mr. Bah was not the perpetrator. This was the surveillance video that Apple had previously claimed did not exist. It follows that Apple, and/or their designated agent acting with apparent authority, lied to the NYPD, gave false evidence in one or more criminal proceedings, and withheld evidence in one or more criminal proceedings.
Stop trying to defend Apple's idiocy.
Even the dumbest of morons knows that lying while giving evidence or testimony in a criminal proceeding is a big no-no. Apple's problem is that they believe that they own the criminal judicial system and they can do and lie as they please. They're about to learn it doesn't work that way.
