    I was reading about that earlier. Reading the news stories it sounds more like the cops just used Google Earth because they couldn't be arsed to get up off their chair and drive to the farm, and they also used it as a road map. It's this bit that makes me think that

    "But officers using Google Earth to locate the address of two farmers suspected of involvement in the drug operation quickly spotted the illegal crop."

    Still with the way things are going these days the criminals will be able to sue Google Earth for invasion of privacy! [​IMG] Have you heard about the child molester that's suing HM Prisons? Something about living standards and human rights.

    Haven't people learned this already? GOOGLE is ALWAYS watching whether you're on the internet or growing the ganja, its watching.
