Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I am an 83-year-old man running for city council. Do you think that my arrest this week on charges of prostitution will help or hurt my candidacy? I mean, sure, it is a crime but I am still GETTING IT DONE at age 83. W00t!!

Answer: I'm going to need some more details on your prostitution gig. Until then, I say it is a net negative for your campaign. (Heartland Connection, 83 year-old Centerville man arrested for prostitution)

2) Question: I am fed up with one of my old buddies. I think the time has come to "unfriend" her on Facebook. I'm new to this -- is there any real downside or consequence if you unfriend someone?

Answer: Possibilities certainly include some hurt feelings and awkwardness. Plus, your ex-buddy might then try to burn your house down while you and your family are sleeping in it. (Des Moines RegisterFacebook figures in Des Moines arson case)

3) Question: Our early-morning train is scheduled to arrive in five minutes but the station doors are locked and no employees are anywhere in sight. Will Amtrak care if we just break the door down to catch our train?

Answer: No problem, just bash the door in if no employees are there with a key. Amtrak is cool with that. (Consumerist, Locked-Out Commuters Break Down Door Of Amtrak Station To Catch Train)
