    If it says Fox then the word news is quite questionable after that.

    The first 2 paragraphs of the article are a classic though.

    Then it follows with this gem

    So these laws are to stop people from seeing illegal activities by others as in the first paragraph but then allow the police to use these purely for spying and no need for a search warrant.

    If I was in texas I would simply ignore such laws as they are complete crap, if its an issue of privacy then this should be a law for both civilians and law enforcement/military/google. You cant pass laws saying its for protecting privacy then also give yourself unlimited powers way beyond what you make illegal for everyone else.

    Topics like this must have gone to Supreme Court.

    How are paparrazi's allowed to photograph stars on their own property or elsewhere?

    What about Google Earth? How is Google Earth and all the people that use it allowed to use the tool?
