Tell Apple: Don't Allow Police to Remotely Disable iPhone Cameras

Imagine: you're walking down the street when you see police officers slamming a woman to the ground. They're exhibiting a shocking use of force -- one officers pushes her face into the ground. Another sticks his knee into her back. You become worried. You pull out your phone to record the incident -- only to have your camera mysteriously shut off. 

With Apple's newly patented technology, this incident could become a reality.
The technology allows cameras to be disabled through special infrared sensors, allowing a third party to disable your camera remotely. The release of this technology would have huge implications, including the censoring of political dissidents, activists, and citizens who are recording police brutality.

Sign this petition to send a message to Apple: Don't release technology that would allow third parties to remotely disable our iPhone cameras!...
