FBI paid Best Buy’s Geek Squad for child porn info
« on: March 08, 2018, 04:11:00 PM »
Documents show the agency has been in cahoots with the Geek Squad for at least ten years.

Documents obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation via a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show Geek Squad employees make an effort to identify illegal material.

Some were paid by the FBI for turning over alleged child porn to the agency.

I hope that no Geeks are planting it.

I have a problem with substituting cash for legitimate search warrants. 
I will NOT comply.

This reminds me of way back a long time ago in the old days people used to have pictures actually developed at a Walmart or drug store or something like that.

These stores would report whatever they deemed to be child porn or anything suspicious to the police. A mother took a picture of her infants taking a bath and was reported for child porn. CPS got involved and it turned into a gigantic mess for the family. I followed a few articles on this but I never did hear exactly how it ended.

The point is that there is no objective legal definition of what child porn is exactly. So the charge of child porn varies tremendously from State to State and from one case to another. It is one of those, "I can't define it, but I know it when I see it" things. This lack of a solid undisputed definition is scary. You can never know what some authority may call child porn. I'll bet many of us could have what someone somewhere may call child porn on our computers. Who knows? Just going to a wrong website will download pics on your hard drive whether you actually see them or not.

Of course there are blatant obvious forms of child porn which cannot be disputed. The problem is the blurry edge of the definition which is entirely subjective and totally dependent on someone's opinion rather than any real legal objective definition.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.
