A federal judge in Colorado has ruled that individuals can be ordered to decrypt their computers, allowing law enforcement officials to find and copy incriminating files. This means that if a person has incriminating files – say, stolen Classified material – they can be forced to unlock their hard drives, giving police the necessary evidence to push a conviction through. This may sound like it is in violation of the Fifth Amendment, but apparently, it is not. Sometimes, I feel that judges should have term limits.
