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 was at a parade and bummed a light from somebody to light up my cigarette. Now the police are trying to arrest me. What's up with that?

Sounds unreasonable, but wait a minute ... is that you in the black jacket in the video below? (Jonathan Turley, Video: Man Arrested For Lighting Cigarette on Olympic Torch)

2) Question: The coffee at this restaurant is terrible! I'm going to complain to the store manager, the corporate office and even the owner. They'll want to know this, right?

Answer: Careful. You might  end up banned for life from the restaurant under the "Province Act." (Consumerist, Customer Banned for Life From Tim Hortons for Complaining About Coffee)

3) Question: I'm going nuts in this prison. What can I do to reduce my sentence?

Answer: Have you considered yoga? In some jurisdictions, inmates can cut their jail time by 15 days for every three months spent practicing their Downward Dog. (idealawg, Blog Glob: India Inmates Take Yoga to Reduce Their Jail Sentences)
