FBI Director Admits Apple Encryption Case Could Set Legal Precedent

Putting the whole issue of legal precedent aside for a moment, why doesn't the FBI just have someone else crack the phone? John McAfee (speaking of crack) said he could do it, so why not use him or another 3rd party?

The director of the FBI has conceded that future judges will look to his battle with Apple as a precedent for law enforcement access to locked or encrypted mobile devices, the first time the government has conceded that the implications of the case stretch beyond an investigation into the San Bernardino terrorist attacks.
