Power Corrupts, but it can save lives, too

Sprint Refuses To Reveal Location Of Cell Phone In Carjacked SUV
http://www.nbc4.tv/news/6001336/detail.html

I've been hearing about this case a lot, so I apologize if it's already been discussed. I am conflicted on the issue, as my immediate feeling is to support the police in initiating force on the phone company to save a child's life from a criminal. In the specific situation, force may have been appropriate, but if they did have the authority to use force, such authority would be abused in the future. I know you're pissed at Sprint for not complying (I hope you are, anyways) but should the law have stepped in for the greater good here?
