Instead of demanding that smartphone makers put a kill switch on their devices, legislators and law enforcement officials should demand that smart phone users put a kill switch on their own stupidity. They ignore police warnings not to display hand-held electronic gadgets in public. That’s like wearing a sign saying: “Please rob me.”
Phone theft victims are as much to blame as the thieves. Keep your high-tech toys out of sight. If not, your intelligence is more limited than your phones’ minutes.
