So what you're saying is that it's not a bug, it's a massive design flaw, indicative of a complete disregard for security on the part of Apple's engineers? That doesn't exactly present Apple in a favorable light.
Fortunately, it is a bug. If you even bother to spend 5 seconds trying it yourself, and dialing a random number into the emergency dialer, you'll quickly see that as designed, doing this simply results in a message saying "867-5309 is not an emergency number." So the programmers, in fact, were not
stupid enough to deliberately make any arbitrary number dialable from the lock screen. It's just a bug. Which is good, because if they actually were clueless enough about security to make the lock screen worthless on purpose,
they'd all deserve to be fired.
