Florida sheriff says he would put Tim Cook in jail if Apple were to refuse to open an iPhone for him
Judd, who was asked his opinion about Apple's refusal to comply with a court order to unlock the Apple iPhone 5c belonging to terrorist Syed Farook, said, "The CEO of Apple needs to know he's not above the law, and neither is anybody else in the United States." Judd was holding a press conference related to the arrest of three brothers named Johnson, who along with a friend, were accused of murdering an alleged drug dealer. The Johnson brothers used their phones to take pictures of the dead body and showed it to other people while bragging about the shooting.
The suspects did turn their passcodes over to authorities so that law enforcement could get their hands on the incriminating photos. None of the handsets involved was an iPhone.
