Lawmakers Criticize FBI's Request For Encryption Back Doors

Criticize? What good does that do? You'd think a "lawmaker" would actually be able to do something about this like, I don't know, make a law or something. I guess not. roll eyes (sarcastic)

But most lawmakers questioned the need for encryption workarounds. Building in back doors for encryption on smartphones would be "technologically stupid," said U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu, who has a background in computer science. Apple and Google have responded to public demand for encryption because of an "out-of-control surveillance state," he added.
