Oh yeah, they got the technology to stop every child pornographer, human trafficker, or anything they want in the whole world. But they can never
disclose the tech, so it will never be put to use in this way... except maybe in special cases where a secondary method, plausible in a courtroom,
could be used as a substitute for the discovery phase of trial.
For example, maybe this could be something similar to what might happen... So they really wanna bust someone, they got a warrant to plant listening
devices, but security is too tight to physically break in and plant bugs. So they use a hi tech gadjet to get the information they need (the criminal
verbally admitting to the crime, in this case), record it on tape, and say you got it from the bugs you planted (which haven't been planted yet), then
during/soon after the commotion of the raid, you have access to the building and you plant the bugs, completing the illusion you got the recording by
conventional, legal, by the book means. Good old fashioned policework. *wink wink* *nudge nudge*
Thats for illegally obtaining audio surveillance. There are methods that could possibly work for other information types. Maybe you could use some
technology to visually see where a person was hiding illegal items in their home, and then coach an informant to say hes the one who told you the
criminal kept his illegal porn stash under a hidden panel in the floor under his bed, and use him to testify in court (probably in exchange for a
lighter sentence or if the CI is not a criminal with any current charges, maybe a reward, so either way they would be willing to perjur themselves or
maybe they are an undercover agent so they want the bust on their jacket)
Or just use their own information which you obtained illegally against them. Maybe you have a child porn ring and you believe you have identified one
of the key players, but you can't really afford to watch this guy 24/7 and after 2 weeks of constant surveillance outside his house, you still don't
have a case, and you have no idea when or where they have their real world physical data exchange meetings (safest way to exchange data, it cant be
intercepted online if you exchange thumb drives in person and use a pc not connected to the web for viewing the "media", at least i think thats how
they did it on SVU, real life meetings but no real names or something like that) and your budget for watching this guy is about done, and your boss is
starting to think you have no case and maybe this "pedo ring"" doesn't exist, or they went underground after getting spooked by sloppy surveillance.
So, you have your NSA buddy illegally hack into all of his files, even his "non online" PC using exotic tech. You find the meeting info after breaking
open supposedly "unbreakable" encrypted files. Now you have an agent do surveillance on the guy, but you know what day to watch him. After agreeing
with your boss to "back off" this suspect, with the understanding you will check up on him every so often, then the day you "check on him" next, just
happens to be the day of the meeting, what luck! The surveillance team observes the suspect travel to a motel outside town, where a number of other
vehicles are parked. After running their plates with HQ, there's a mighty good many sex offenders at this location, some are even breaking the
conditions of their parole by being here right now, it turns out.
When you tell the boss, he pats you on the back, tells you good job, and promotes you, giving you full discretion to pursue this case, with a near
"Just one thing" he says. "I have to know... How in the H-E-Double-Hockeysticks did you know which day to put surveillance on this creep??"
*shrugs* "Well, it's like you always say, Chief, all those extra training sessions and educational courses that all the rookies hate, which you made
mandatory, they will really hone your instincts! I think they're starting to pay off. *big smile*
"Atta boy, Dawson! I knew once you had matured enough, youd start to see the value in a rigorous training regimen! You know what they say, "Early to
bed, and early to rise..."
"Yes, Sir!" (Jackass... I really solved this case because my fraternity brother from skull n bones works at the NSA. I HATE training!!!)
