法庭文件显示谷歌向警方提供搜索关键词有关数据

Google is giving data to police based on search keywords, court docs show

很少有什么事情能像一个人的搜索记录那样展示一个人的全貌,而警方通常需要一张对已知嫌疑人的搜查令,才能要求提供这些敏感信息。但最近一份未密封的法庭文件发现,调查人员可以要求谷歌披露搜索关键字的所有人,而不是已知嫌疑人的信息,从而以相反的顺序要求这些数据。

There are few things as revealing as a person’s search history, and police typically need a warrant on a known suspect to demand that sensitive information. But a recently unsealed court document found that investigators can request such data in reverse order by asking Google to disclose everyone who searched a keyword rather than for information on a known suspect.

今年8月,警方逮捕了迈克尔·威廉姆斯(Michael Williams),他是歌手兼性犯罪被告凯利(R.Kelly)的同伙,罪名是涉嫌在佛罗里达州纵火焚烧一名证人的汽车。调查人员将威廉姆斯与纵火案以及证人篡改案联系起来,此前他们向谷歌发送了一份搜查令,要求提供“在纵火案发生前搜索过住所地址的用户”的信息

In August, police arrested Michael Williams, an associate of singer and accused sex offender R. Kelly, for allegedly setting fire to a witness’ car in Florida. Investigators linked Williams to the arson, as well as witness tampering, after sending a search warrant to Google that requested information on “users who had searched the address of the residence close in time to the arson.”
