“The fact is that, although the new software may enhance privacy for some users, it severely hampers law enforcement’s ability to aid victims.

I do believe that is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Bottom line is these pricks have become so friggin lazy that they now expect conviction to be served up neatly packaged on a silver package ... Instead of making them have to do any 'Real Police Work'. Shit by that logic, it's a bloody miracle that they ever managed to arrest anyone back in the 70's - pre technology - dark ages.
Fear mongering and security theater, that's all they give us for protection these days ... Idiots.
