Just saw your story on the news about this. I like the concept of street view, but the camera came on a bad day and caught all the school children exiting the bus up the street so that anyone can easily see where young children live. We have reported these images to Google twice without a response.

I don't think it's any bodies business what you are doing inside or out of your home, I find this offensive as well as it gives unwanted people information, to those who are looking for a crime spree, this will definately cause a law suit.

This Google Maps photo feature has been active for months, possibly years.

Doesn't it make you feel all warm and fuzzy knowing the Department of Homeland Security can do a lot more than this?

I find it great if you are looking for a business, However i'm seeing a trend on just how much information on our lives Google is collecting on everybody. Its one things to save web searches forever but now you can look at any house any ware?! Whats next?, Will they sell any information they have on anybody for the right price?

Visual views of your home have been around for awhile! This is Bush's secondary use of wireless phone and audio taps! Yes..Republicans and Conservatives..this is the truth..so don't get your thongs in a pinch...your boss is viewing!
I have known about it for many years, but if I wrote about it...some wackos from the judiciary would be spewing about..did you take your meds, wacko. Remember.....the judicial system is aware of all of this and they themselves.... use it often! Check them out..they are very clandestine in this area!, but very, very nosy!
