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'm trying to eat breakfast at Waffle House but a woman just opened fire outside the restaurant at another group of women! What the heck is going on?!

Answer: It sounds like someone changed their relationship status on Facebook. (WRDW, Deputies: Shots fired at Augusta Waffle House stemmed from Facebook)

2) Question: We are a small telephone company in Nebraska. For years we have made a pay phone available to the public (the only one in town) but last year the phone took in just $3.35 in revenue while costing us $1,450 in upkeep and other expenses. Can we pull the plug on this relic from the 1970s? 

Answer: Sorry, but state law requires at least one public phone in every community across Nebraska, so you will need to keep that phone in service. (Journal StarCompany wants to pull small town pay phones)

3) Question: Last week I drove by someone in a pink Easter Bunny costume with a sign reading, "Have a safe, hoppy holiday. Buckle up!" Aww, that's so cute! Is this some kind of public service announcement by my town of West Palm Beach, Fla.? 

Answer: Not exactly. Did you also notice the bunny/police officer secretly radioing his fellow officers up the street? You just drove by "Operation Hippity Hop," which helped police issue 50 seat belt violations (carrying a $116 citation) in its first two hours alone. (The Palm Beach PostWest Palm Beach police use bunny costume to enforce seat-belt law)
