Google has retaliated against me for attempting to take down the extortionist mugshot websites. They are so obsessed with profit motives and lucrative advertising that they don't even care if they are aiding and abetting criminal activities. In Brazil a Google executive was arrested for contempt of court by refusing to take down postings that libeled a political candidate in Brazil. Surely they know the difference between free speech and defamation. Surely they know the difference between the public's right to know and criminal activity. What if the google executives were visually depicted as "enemies of the people" with google maps indicating where they lived and asked to pay extortion money to take the pictures down. Would that be free speech? I don't think so. Do they even remotely care about the lives they are ruining by sanctioning the criminals that post mugshots and will unpublish with google for a "hefty" price. Without google polluting citizens first pages with the obscene website postings these businesses would close down overnight. Employment would increase and privacy and decency would prevail
