FBI thinks it can solve everything if only they have a little bit more power. Of course, it won't go well once FBI abuse its power, or EVIL PEOPLE use it.

FBI general counsel Valerie Caproni told Congress that new ways of communicating online could cause problems for law enforcement officials, but categorically stated that the bureau is no longer pushing to force companies like RIM, which offers encrypted e-mail for business and government customers, to engineer holes in their systems so the FBI can see the plaintext of a communication upon court order.

Translation: RIM is already cooperating with us.

Quote
the FBI is still pushing for more online-communications companies to build real-time spying capabilities into their software

Which is why each one of us should ensure the end-to-end privacy of our communications using open-source cryptography software.

The FBI’s further push for expanded powers to wiretap online communications in real time comes against the backdrop of revolutions in the Middle East that relied heavily on social media communication tools and as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for worldwide internet freedom.

Yes, give everyone in the world unfettered access to the internet so we can listen in on their communications and nip any future revolutions in the bud.

Quote
“As the gap between authority and capability widens, the government is increasingly unable to collect valuable evidence in cases ranging from child exploitation and pornography to organized crime and drug trafficking to terrorism and espionage –- evidence that a court has authorized the government to collect,” Caproni said. “This gap poses a growing threat to public safety.”

I am so scared.  Embarrassed  Who is going to save the children?
