Apple fights the government

The Apple CEO has said that he will not comply with a judge's ruling that Apple should help open a locked phone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters.  Sides are being chosen.  Apple claims that this will open a backdoor and can be used widespread.  This will take away our safety and security with our I-phones.  
Others claim that the information on that phone is crucial to know who the shooter may have contacted prior to the shootings or a possible reason for the tragedy.  It seems though that the county had access to software that would've eliminated the need for Apple to be involved at all.  If they had just installed it, this discussion wouldn't be happening now.  It will be interesting to see how this turns out.  Should Apple comply?
