Angry British villagers block Google Street View car, incident captured on CCTV
 

Look we understand demands for privacy. We just find it ironic that citizens of Broughton (pronunciation: bak-wÉ?rd), a small village in a nation where CCTV cameras look, evaluate behavior, and sometimes speak at virtually every intersection, would block a Google Street View car on grounds of invasion of privacy. Seems to us that they’ve given up on that right a long, long time ago. Though the police were called, the villagers eventually let Google’s contractor pass peacefully — presumably after assurances were given that cameras can not, in fact, steal your soul.
