You know what's coming next: FBI is upset it can't get into Texas church gunman's smartphone


Re: FBI can't unlock smartphone

Not at all, because the FBI is barking up the wrong tree. They need to be figuring out why this fucktard was able to skirt around all of the red flags that, by all accounts, should have prevented this sick fuck from getting firearms (legally) with the rap sheet that he already had. Unfortunately, even if he had been legally unable to get firearms, he would have still gotten them on the black market anyway. That's the problem. It's always these hot-headed rage-a-holics that end up with firearms. Inevitably, innocent people pay the price with their lives. What the fuck difference will it make if the FBI can look at his phone? It certainly won't solve anything, because the American government doesn't want to admit that it has a gun-related violence problem, not an encryption problem.
