It's not Big Brother. Its Big Corporate. The guy had to give the police permission to use OnStar to track the car. However, no one ever said GM wasn't using OnStar to track every one of their cars at all times. Who knows what GM is doing with all that data. Maybe they'll find a way to revoke your warranty or something based on how you've driven your car, or that fact you regularly go 3001 miles between oil changes instead of 3000 miles.
Of course, I'm assuming that all those domestic spying laws signed in by Bush and Obama don't cover OnStar access. Otherwise the CIA is already tracking these vehicles for us.
You people have been reading too much 1984. This ain't Big Brother. You pay extra to get the OnStar in your vehicle. They aid you in car crashes and emergencies. If you are the legal owner of that car, you don't have to worry about "Big Brother." But if you are this thief, then ya, you do. So moral of the story is: Grand theft auto is a crime.

after you give them your wallet and stuff, when they are walking away, pull out your gun and shoot them in the back them take everything they have on them and drive away
anyway onstar is good for situations like this but this feature can be prevented if the criminal has a cellphone jammer in the car with them
a better solution would be also have a special rf receiver and a device where the car owner can give police the code to also shut off the car when in range, great backup if the criminal has a cellphone jammer.
