Forget for a moment the claimed reason for going through private content. 'For the children' has to be one of the most widely abused excuses out there.

What is their LEGAL justification here for invading privacy?

The stated law doesn't appear to imply any requirement to actively scan content. Assuming for a moment that I haven't missed anything then however traumatising this task may be it still doesn't tell us by what right they're doing this or what legal requirement they're relying upon to justify this.
