A Philly cop is being kept behind bars because the Feds insist there is kiddy porn on his encrypted drives, yet some say the authorities’ confidence would imply that evidence is already on the table.

The government said Monday he should remain jailed indefinitely until he complies. The authorities also said that it's not a violation of the man's Fifth Amendment right against compelled self-incrimination because it's a "foregone conclusion" that illegal porn is on the drives and that he is only being asked to unlock the drives, not divulge their passcodes.
