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'm an adult male, and recently I've been thinking about getting circumcised. I saw an ad on Craigslist by some dude who says he can do it for me out of a mini-operating room in his home. He tells me he's a doctor. Should I go for it?

No, sir. Just no. (WZZM, Grand Rapids Area Man Charged With Performing Illegal Circumcisions on Adult Males)


2) Question: It is a big day here at the courthouse. I'm a deputy sheriff and today is the first day our County Judicial Center is open to the public after being under construction for more than a year. But now I've accidentally locked myself in one of the jail cells and I'm claustrophobic, to boot. I've got my gun, should I try to shoot my way out of the locked cell?

Answer: No, sir, unless you're willing to lose your job. (AP, Kentucky Deputy Loses Job After Locking Himself in Cell, Then Attempting to Shoot His Way Out)

3) Question: I write for a publication that watches legal blogs. Yesterday the guy who writes the "Stay Off My Lawn" blog wrote that I don't watch legal blogs correctly. Isn't that "libel per se" or something? I'll own the "Stay Off My Lawn" blog before this is over, right?!

Answer: Grasshopper, you are missing the forest for the trees here. You don't want to end this, you want to embrace this. This is your Tupac-Biggie or Lauren-Heidi opportunity. Own it! Ride it to glory in the blawgosphere!
