Police want back door to web users' private data. This is a horrible idea, and the fact that 89% of police support this only underscores my opposition. In addition, the hacking of Google by China was possible because of back doors put in at the request of the U.S. government. When everyones' security is damaged to pursue a few criminals, it is time to scratch the idea. But it is doubtful that anyone in this country is even aware of the danger being perpetuated by our own security forces and politicians. However, you can bet China and Russia are heavily in favor of these workarounds, because it makes hacking so much easier. The U.S. continues to lag in cyber-security because of policies like this that do more harm than good.
