    Nothing Google could do about this. They really can't be blamed for the use of their technology by others who did this.

    Using a tool that is inherently good for evil by people who are evil doesn't make the tool evil. Case in point: stoking a fire for warmth or something to cook food over, or burning down someone's house. Both use fire..
