At a giant Best Buy repair shop in Brooks, Ky., Geek Squad technicians work on computers owned by people across the country, delving into them to retrieve lost data. Over several years, a handful of those workers have notified the FBI when they see signs of child pornography, earning payments from the agency.
"If a Best Buy Technician Is a Paid FBI Informant, Are His Computer Searches Legal?" is from the January 09, 2017 Tech section of The Washington Post. It was written by Tom Jackman and narrated by Jill Melancon.
