Default How law enforcement uses Google Earth

The sheriff's deputies who pulled the man over found, in addition to what they estimated was at least $63,000 worth of pot, a GPS unit around his neck that was filled with a series of local coordinates, according to The Journal Times of Racine, Wis. After plugging those coordinates into Google Earth, the police were able to identify the location of several marijuana fields to which the man was allegedly connected.

Technology sure can be a double-edged sword.

Though, of course, this all began the old-fashioned way: an idiot behind the wheel.

My heart goes out to the true undeserving victim in all of this: those poor, defenseless plants.
