Legislators Must Not Allow “Warrant-Proof Encryption” To Make America A More Dangerous Place
William Craig Whisman came to a parking lot in Plano with a stuffed toy, intending to have sex with a young girl whose father had offered her up in a website chatroom. Earlier, Whisman had sent two videos to the father in which Whisman simulated the acts he wanted to commit on the young girl. Now, he was there to make his fantasy a reality.
Fortunately, the girl was not real. But after law enforcement discovered that Whisman had sent pictures of other children – this time real children he had secretly photographed while standing in line at a local Home Depot – officers ended their ruse and swept in to arrest him
When Whisman saw agents closing in, he turned off his phone. Security measures on the phone prevented officers from accessing its contents. Search warrants and subpoenaes were powerless to provide access because advanced encryption techniques protected Whisman’s secrets. Had real children been abused? Could abused children be hidden somewhere? Were there other child exploiters communicating with him that law enforcement could pursue and prevent from offending? Time was ticking, and officers needed to know the answers quickly to potentially prevent a tragedy.
