Idiotic statist comment of the day

“The wireless industry must take action to end the victimization of its customers.”
This moron is San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, who wants the law to require cell phone producers to incorporate a "kill switch" for lost/stolen phones.

The smartphone industry, you see, has been victimizing its customers by producing and marketing devices that are so desirable that 1 out of 3 robberies nationwide now involves smartphone theft.

And that's the manufacturer's problem, exactly how?

Let's also note that this requirement would make it possible both for hackers and law enforcement to access your phone.

Now it may be a quite salable item, this phone with a kill switch, and I'm certainly not against anybody who wants to pay for such a device in his or her phone.

But I don't happen to want one, so why the hell should I be paying increased prices because the only solutions that DA Gascon can think up are authoritarian?

It's also worth noting that every mobile operating system already has third-party apps that do this available for users who do want it.

Or that a stolen mobile is a very easily traceable item iff turned on. So it is either useless or dangerous to the thief until they can get its id# hacked.
