Apple Refuses To Unlock Terrorist's iPhone For The Government — See Why They Won't Comply With The 'Dangerous' Court Order!

no title

Apple isn't on the best terms with Uncle Sam right now!

The tech company said it would oppose and challenge a federal court order to help the FBI unlock an iPhone used by one of the terrorists behind the San Bernardino mass shooting last December.

On Tuesday, Federal District Court Judge Sheri Pym ordered Apple to bypass the security on an iPhone 5 operated by Syed Rizwan Farook — who was killed by the police with his wife after murdering 14 of his co-workers at a holiday party.

In hopes of obtaining more evidence in the investigation, the Judge ordered the company to create special software that would basically act as a skeleton key to unlock the phone — but Apple refused!

Hours later, Apple exec Tim Cook released a statement saying that the company would not comply with the order because the technology would be "too dangerous to create."

The FBI says its experts have failed to access the data on Farook's iPhone, and are at risk of losing the data forever after repeated unsuccessful attempts to enter the password — which means that only Apple is able to get around its security features.

But according to Cook, what the government is asking the company to do "has implications far beyond the legal case at hand." He wrote:

"The F.B.I. may use different words to describe this tool, but make no mistake: Building a version of iOS that bypasses security in this way would undeniably create a back door. And while the government may argue that its use would be limited to this case, there is no way to guarantee such control."

Back in 2014, Apple and Google announced they tightened up their software with "full disk" encryption — which means their security was so beefed up, they could no longer unlock their own products!

But this re-engineering created a problem for law enforcement authorities, who say the new encryption hinders them from preventing and solving crime.

While police and prosecutors believe that creating a master key will be extremely useful when investigating crimes, Cook says that creating a "back door" to bypass their security is:

"Something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create."

The tech company's next step will likely be to file an appeal — and since the legal issues here are complicated, this case could go all the way up to the Supreme Court.

We can't say we're surprised!

As we previously reported, Kris Jenner had a scary encounter with a superfan when the unknown intruder wandered into the Momager's mansion earlier this week. How scary!

However, it's since been reported that the KUWTK matriarch has fired her entire security detail following the incident. Apparently, the uninvited guest pretended he had an appointment with the 60-year-old and security let him waltz right through.

Yikes! Donald Trump & Ben Carson Granted Secret Service Details After 'An Extraordinary Number Of Threats' Against The Candidates!

no title

Well, this is kind of scary!

Republican presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Ben Carson have apparently attracted the attention of the wrong kind of people, because both candidates have already been granted security details from the United States Secret Service!

The Secret Service, which of course typically protects the President, the First Lady, and other major politicians and their families, feels that threats lobbed at Trump and Carson have beenboth serious and frequent enough that it's already time to protect them around-the-clock, even if neither one ends up with the Republican nomination for president.

The new security details for Trump and Carson aren't related to their popularity or place in the polls, but rather the amount of threats against them, according to one federal source who spoke to reporters:

"We can infer from the USSS's decision to move forward with protection that Trump and Carson have both received an extraordinary number of threats."

Yikes!!

Say what you will about Trump and Carson — and believe us, we do — but nobody deserves any physical harm to come their way simply for entering politics.

ICYMI: Lammy was found unresponsive last Tuesday after partaking in a particularly troubling binge which resulted in him going into a coma and being hospitalized at the Sunrise Hospital in Sin City.

Apparently, the call girl and her co-worker Ryder Cherry fled the famous brothel after news broke of the NBA great's medical condition. The pair previously refused to elaborate about their romp with L.O. — who supposedly requested their presence at least six times a day.

But now, Monica seems rather chatty.

WTF!? 8-Year-Old Boy Was Almost Smuggled Out Of Africa — In A SUITCASE!

no title

On Thursday, a Moroccan woman was caught trying to smuggle an eight-year-old child in a suitcase over the border into a Spanish territory on the northern tip of Africa!

According to reports, customs officials couldn't believe their eyes when they saw the silhouette of a child stuffed in a suitcase as it went through the security scanner in Ceuta.

The suitcase was carried by a 19-year-old woman from Morocco, who tried to sneak him into Spanish territory, but she wasn't even related to the boy, who is reportedly from Ivory Coast in West Africa.

The woman was suspected to be paid by the child's father, A.O., who tried to cross into Spain an hour and a half later, assuming his son Abou would be awaiting his arrival.

But after the 43-year-old said he was from Ivory Coast, customs officials became suspicious. Once they showed him a picture of the boy in the suitcase, the man broke down and admitted to being the boy's father, saying:
