The idiot asked Best Buy to recover data lost during a hard drive crash. The fact of the matter is that if Best Buy did not turn that hard drive over to the police, then the geek and the company could have been prosecuted for possession of child pornography.
The hard disk was in the possession and under the control of Best Buy when the images were discovered. The only way to absolve themselves of criminal liability was to IMMEDIATELY turn it over to the police. If they had returned the hard drive to the owner, knowing that it contained child pornography, they could have been prosecuted for disseminating child pornography.
Three cheers for the Geek Squad. But somehow I doubt this guy is going to pay the bill for recovering all his precious "data".
Seems reasonable to me.
I really shouldn’t ask the mechanic to change my spare when the trunk if stuffed with dope.
He might get the impression I’m doing something illegal.
The Apple genius was bemused - but agreed - when I was replaced my iPhone (the vibration stopped working) but asked to borrow the old one for long enough to reset it. He remarked that he had only emails from his World of Warcraft guild on his iPhone, whereas I use mine for work (sometimes).
