What needs to happen is Apple release an update with a feature requiring a passcode in order to shut an iOS device down. This way, the device could be located until either the battery dies, or the device is destroyed. Why won't Apple do this? Surely it has come to their attention previously.

Actually you're displaying a signpost of a clear lack of understand as to what the founding fathers meant and fought for to provide the freedoms we have. Congratulations on being so ill informed. Enjoy the read.

Here's a snip for you:

The rights of the people come from God. The powers of government come from the people. The American people delegated the specific powers they wanted the federal government to have through the Constitution. And any additional powers they wanted to grant were supposed to be added by amendment.It’s largely because we’ve forgotten these simple principles that the country is in so much trouble.

The powers of the federal government have multiplied madly, with only the vaguest justifications and on the most slippery pretexts.

Let him read up on the link posted. It's one of the more clearly written posts I've seen in recent times that will perhaps clarify a few things to people who don't even realize the out of control state our Gov't has come to.

Is that not a personal freedom?

What else would I refer to it as?

It is quite directly a limitation to personal freedom.

If you want to be taken seriously, actually say something of value. If you want to add to the discussion, do so. But attacking other people is not adding to the discussion. If you really do care about your fellow citizens, say something substantial.
No, it doesn't, it was proposed, but it hasn't been implemented... first learn what is going on then you can go on a babbling rant.
