Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I'm a police officer. We responded to a report of a robber who broke into a woman's hair salon, but was caught in the act by the woman. The woman who owned the hair salon was a black belt and she quickly floored the robber with a kick, dragged him to a back room, stripped him naked and and tied him up with a hair dryer cable. She then allegedly force-fed him Viagra and used him as a sex slave for the next three days. This was not covered in the training. Who should we be arresting here?

Answer: Both the robber and the hair salon owner. (Daily Mail, Robber who broke into hair salon is beaten by its black-belt owner and kept as a sex slave for three days ... fed only Viagra)

2) Question: I'm a judge. One of the parties now before me is alleged to have thrown rocks and spit at his ex-girlfriend. This is odd to me because usually when I read a declaration that says, 'He spit on me, he threw rocks at me,' it is almost always a Middle Eastern client. Of course, if the declaration says, 'He drags me around the house by the hair,' it's almost always a Hispanic client. I'm quite puzzled.

Answer: Are you saying this out loud, your honor? Because if so, you might soon be hearing from the Commission on Judicial Performance. (The Recorder, Orange County Judge Admonished for Insensitive Comments)

3) Question: My friends and I were playing a great game where we try to punch each other in the groin. I just got punched square in the testicles by one of my friends. May I have $670,000 from his insurance company?

Answer: You may not. (The Recorder, Appeal Court: Punching Friend in the Groin No 'Accident')
