Yes just for a laugh, a garage owner in Edinburgh faked an assault while a Google Street View camera was driving by, as you do.
The police got alerted to it and visited the jokers responsible and gave them a telling off.
So Google Street View is now being looked at street by street to see if there might be some other evidence for unsolved crime.
This will save the government millions of pounds and the other advantage is that although technology can be corrupted it is not corrupt.
Well at least Google blurred out the face of the potential murderer just to give the police something to do.
