Refuse to testify against yourself, comply with orders to place "finger" (you didn't say which one) on the reader. Place finger on reader and
Nope. Refuse to tell which finger unlocks the phone. They cannot COMPEL testimony, and that is what that would be. They have one in ten shot of getting it right.
Too much emotion, not enough reason.
Reason has been educated out of our system, and replaced with Emotion. Much easier to manipulate the masses is all you have to do is cry "Hate" and have a bunch of kneejerk reactionaries goosestep the same way.
These things are related.
You're assuming that it's equally easy to get damaging materials from both countries. That's an incorrect assumption.
It may not be equally easy with Russia, but it is quite easy nonetheless. It is just very few people care. Ukrainians, for example, have been collecting undeniable proofs of Russia's official involvement in the alleged "civil" war in Ukraine's East. They don't have governmental backing, but they have patience enough to sift through social media looking for selfies, that Russian conscripts post online (with geotagging enabled). And yet, you can still encounter people even on Slashdot, who would deny Russian involvement...
Similarly, there is solid evidence — put together by volunteers and governmental investigators, that a Russian SAM shot down the Malaysian Boeing in 2014... And yet, a Google search for it today still brings up a theory, that it was a Ukrainian jet (top altitude 5000m), that shot down the airliner (flying at 10000m)...
Ahh...$9 a MONTH.
Well, I had to use the can and wanted to get that posted.
The original problem — one with actual passwords — came from the painfully perverted reading of the Fifth Amendment (I wish, ACLU et al were as liberal reading the Second!). If you have to tell police your password that could be used against you, then the password became testimony (written or verbal) and so the police could not compel you to do that under the Fifth Amendment.
Well, fingerprints are neither said nor written, so the Fifth Amendment does not apply. End of story — whether police can look at your smart phone's contents is now controlled by the Fourth... If the judge issues a warrant, you have to open up...
We "fat dumb Americans" are about to elect one of the two biggest mistakes we have ever made, because we have devolved into arguing over emotional labels and not actual character and qualifications. That, the our court system is rigged against the electorate, since we can vote on laws and have them overturned by one (or more) person(s) in a black robe.
What if only one out of your nine fingers actually unlocked the phone, and the other nine deleted everything as a kill switch?
If you're not doing illegal stuff on your phone, you don't have to worry.
That works, until the government decides that your particular activity is a threat to government and makes it illegal. So no, you're incorrect, you should worry about what your government can do to you.
My particular solution would be to have a deadman's switch that erases the phone when using any finger but the one correct one. Or better yet, disable the Finger Prints from your phone, and use a proper PIN, which they cannot force you to divulge.
Bernie can't win the election. Too many people in the middle of the road wouldn't vote for him
Can sterilized packaging only be made from non-recyclable plastics?
A quick google showed me that polypropylene is autoclaveable, so the short answer is no
In space, no one can hear you fart.
