Burglary-prone villagers chase Google Street View car out of town

It's a great way to find something you're going to be seeking later on. Like a restaurant, a friend's house ... or a place to rob. That last advantage of Street View is why people in Broughton, a village in England that has suffered three burglaries in the past six weeks, stood in the street and blocked the way when they saw the Google cameras coming. They wanted to protect their stuff.

"How dare anyone take a photo of my home without my consent?" inveighed outraged vigilante Paul Jacobs, who spotted the car and led the revolt.

The stills are often weeks and months old by the time they reach the web, and they're not updated on a basis regular enough to establish a pattern in the lifestyles of the residents.

But will it help you figure out how to ****** the locks in a ritzy neighborhood?

Srsly? They're not at all concerned about their own government watching their every move with cameras all over the place? Their government losing their most important personal data on laptops, USB drives, and boxes of printouts doesn't bother them? But photos of what's publicly visible, which could easily be seen by the bad guys if they go on their own, are offensive?

You need a bigger cornhole. Then you can store your corn out of sight, where the sun don't shine.

Don't Lie.


I don't have to worry about anybody seeing my house from Google Maps street view, my town is too small for them to do.
