THE BRONX - New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton says Apple is wrong about preventing federal authorities from accessing information on one of the San Bernardino, California terrorist’s iPhones. 

Bratton says the company should put people's safety first. 

However, Apple CEO Tim Cook argues that such a move would undermine encryption by creating a backdoor that could potentially be used on other future devices.

Mayor Bill de Blasio also commented by saying Apple should put the safety of its customers before its capital gains.
