6:03 am
why his company will fight the order to unlock the iphone of sayed farook. he is one of two terrorists to shoot 14 people. they are trying to access data on his phone for the month and a half leading up to the attacks but can't because farook might have disabled the i cloud feature. they want his engineers to set up a back door for the iphone what apple says would be a new iphone system and would be a master key tobey pass enkrimgs found on millions of other iphones and says there's no guarantee the government could keep the master key confined to just that terrorist iphone. here' an expert of that letter i'm quoting from tim cook. while we believe the fbi's intentions are good, it would be wrong for the government to force us to build a back door
6:04 am
into our products and this would underman the very freedoms our government is to protect. he points out he has cooperated with the fbi in then san bernardino investigation when it comments comes to data already in the fbi's investigation and providing expert advice. bob redell, today in the bay. >> this fight just getting started. thank you. >> it has you saying tim cook is doing exactly what he said he was going to do. >> exactly. i want to take you back a couple months ago, not a surprise. stanford university, tim cook invited to a cybersecurity summit by president obama himself. he stands up there in front of the crowd and makes his first major statement the secrets on our iphone are our secrets and not the government. apple does not know what's on our phones and cannot figure out what's on our phones and will
6:05 am
not build something to break into those phones. you have to think about how d e daring this was. he says, no, right in front of the president at the president's own event. it was such an important moment in silicon valley, we said it was the most important moment in tech in 2015. now, it's going from principle to practice. cook's stand will help protect the phone used by what every american thinks is an incredibly bad person did undeniably awful things. a lot of people won't understand why an all american company like apple is defending those people. so often when you stand on principle, you're standing behind a person rather kind of dre dreadful, even if the principle itself is honorable. >> saying "those people," it's overall. >> in this case, those people were so terrible, in this one case, changed the rules. >> once you let that one case go through, then it opens the door.
6:06 am
>> which is pandora's box. it starts with the u.s. magistrate, kind of the low end of the to temp pole you were describe k and could go all the way up. >> i think it has to go all the way to the supreme court. this is not a nuance stand. apple stayed, no. we have to see where it goes. i can't imagine it going anywhere but the supreme court. >> a long haul. thank you. developing story, three teenagers shot while sitting in a car near berkeley. stephanie is there near parker street and san pablo avenue. one of those shot just 16 years old. >> reporter: he is the youngest. we just learned from berkeley police all three survived this shooting but still no arrests made. >> we do know this triple sho
