Google IS watching us. They track everything we do on the Internet. So does Facebook. So does Apple.

And for some reason, we all just kinda accept it and go on with our lives.

But a 30-year-old guy named Raul Diaz in Mountain View, California just couldn’t get on board.

He was pretty sure one of the self-driving Google Maps cars was FOLLOWING him back in May. So he went to Google’s headquarters that night and FIREBOMBED it.

He threw a bunch of Molotov cocktails at the car until it caught on fire, then he ran off.

The cops eventually tracked him down and he was just arrested for arson. He’s looking at up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
