Vance held quite the grandstanding press conference over this, in which he repeated the same misleading claims as in the past about how horrible encryption is, and then trotted out some sob stories of cases where law enforcement failed to do their job, and then blamed it on encryption.” https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20160418/23480834204/ignorant-anti-encryption-law-enforcement-groups-made-logo-hashtag-it-all-backfired.shtml Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
