Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I work at city hall. We just found a 4-foot long aluminum rod in the building with the word "Kaboom" written on it. Should we evacuate the building and call in the police dogs to search for explosives?

Answer: Perhaps, but remember that the rod could also be the walking stick for a man whose legal name is actually "Kaboom." (CBS Cleveland, Akron City Hall Evacuated After Man Named ‘Kaboom’ Leaves Walking Stick)

2) Question: I am a policeman. We are at the scene of an accident but a man in a Batman suit has also arrived at the scene and he refuses to leave and is confusing our police dogs. What am I supposed to do here? I mean, it's Batman!

Answer: Confiscate his Batsuit and charge him with obstructing police. (msnNOW, Batman arrested in Michigan by police officers with no sense of fun)

3) Question: My friend told me and everyone else she knows that she had Stage IV cancer. We raised tens of thousands of dollars for her by holding several benefits, and even organized meal calendars where we all took turns bringing her dinners. Now she is saying that she is feeling better and believes a miracle is coming. That happens sometimes, right?

Answer: Perhaps. But it could also be the crime of "theft by deception." (Gloucester County TimesDelran woman accused of faking cancer to gain tens of thousands in charity)
