I agree. If kiddie porn turned up in routine computer repair, it’s one thing. But to get paid by the state for digging around in search of it is despicable.
I worked for major photofinishing companies for years and occasionally came across kiddie porn. The police were notified and that was the end of our involvement.
Innocent pictures of your own young kids in the bath etc have been deemed kiddie porn.
Keep your backups up to date and NEVER give your storage hard drive to anyone. If the unit goes in for repair then pull the hard drive. They are cheaper than being deemed a pornographer - which will ruin you life. If you cannot pull the hard drive/storage device scrap the unit with gunfire. If you are tech savvy enough to wipe the device do it, in spades. Oh and the above goes for units passing out of your control.
And what is to prevent these Geek Squad scum from planting such porn on a conservative’s computer!? Grrrrrr
Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.
