Tuesday'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 a burglar. I stole a laptop and discovered it was filled with disgusting child porn images. I'd like to turn the owner in, but, again, I obtained it by committing a felony. Thoughts? 

Answer: Sometimes burglars with a conscience will take the laptop they stole with child porn on it to the police anyway. That is one option for you. (The SunI am so glad we were burgled...it exposed my father as a paedophile)

 2) Question: I'm a 6-year-old girl in the U.K. I always play at recess with my best friend, Annie, but the teacher told me today that I cannot do that any more. Did I do something wrong? 

Answer: No, you did nothing wrong. In the U.K., primary schools are now adopting a "no best friends" policy for children to ease the possible pain from any "falling out." (Daily MailTeachers tell children not to have 'best friends' in primary schools... to prevent pain of falling out)

3) Question: I have lived in South Carolina my whole life, attended the University of South Carolina, and even have a large tattoo of the school's "Gamecock" bird mascot on my calf.  But now a "Joint Boundary Commission" that is performing the first survey of the state line between the Carolinas in more than 200 years is trying to say that my house is actually just over the borderline and sits in North Carolina. No way! Can they do this to me? 

Answer: Yes, sorry. Welcome to Tar Heel Nation! (The Consumerist, Property Owners Find Out They've Moved From South To North Carolina)
