SOUNDBITE (English) New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman:

"Something on the order of 30 to 40% of all robberies nationwide are robberies of smart phones. It is totally unacceptable that we have an epidemic of crime that we believe can be eliminated if the technological fixes that we believe are available are put into place and smart phones are equipped to be disabled, equipped to be bricked. Our message is very simple to the folks in the industry: work with us to solve this problem, work with us to make it a pointless endeavor to assault someone and steal their smart phone. We can do that by making them useless for resale."

SOUNDBITE (English) - San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon:

"In my first meeting with Apple in January of this year I was told that the technological solution to deal with this problem was not forthcoming. It's really interesting that six months later now we have Apple talking about it. Let there be no doubt the industry has a moral and social obligation to fix this problem. This industry has a tremendous capacity to innovate, to create tremendous user experience and they have an obligation to do this now."
