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 have a brilliant plan to rob people at ATMs. It's low-cost, too. All I need are some squirt bottles and some liquid feces. Sound good?

Answer:  Sounds terrible. And not even that original. (CBC News, Feces-squirting thieves sought in Toronto)

Yemen 2) Question: I was born and raised in Fairfax, Va.  I'm headed off to Yemen to study information technology, after which I'll return to the U.S. What kind of jobs should I apply for when I get back?

Answer: Not so fast. Sometimes the U.S. government places people who study in Yemen on the no-fly list indefinitely and tells them they may need to return by "sailing the ocean blue" like Columbus. So unless you have a boat, you may not see Virginia again for a long time. (AP, Va. Man Trapped in Egypt on U.S. No-Fly List)

3) Question: I just caught a NYPD traffic officer using his flashing red lights and speeding through a neighborhood so that he could get a coffee coolata at Dunkin Donuts! I'm going to take his picture as he walks out of the store -- what will I get for this?

Answer: For starters, you might get a $165 ticket and a summons from a very unhappy traffic officer. (CBS, Cop Caught Flashing Lights, Speeding To Get Coffee)
