Some people do not understand the constituion

Engadget:
If Apple loses, your home could be the next thing that's unlocked

Access to your security cameras would be just a judge order away.
Acourt can already order access to evidence in your home if the prosecution can prove probable cause.  This has always been true.  There is really no good reason why Apple should be an exception to standard lawful orders of a court.
The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides, "[t]he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
...
Courts already routinely order access to security cameras.  An Apple loss will not change that.  If it is believed that the system may contain evidence it can be ordered to be produced.  What Apple is demanding is that terrorist and drug gangs be able to avoid the law by using their devices.
