The Day's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: A man who was apprehended by four nearby Marines (and who stabbed one of the Marines) while he was trying to steal a laptop was just brought to our hospital with two broken arms, a broken ankle, several missing teeth, possible broken ribs, multiple contusions, assorted lacerations, a broken nose and a broken jaw. What could cause such injuries?

Answer: Falling off of the curb after stabbing the Marine. (Legal Antics, Wow. That must've been some curb)

2) Question: I saw your post last week on Things You Can't Do on a Plane. What about being a quadripelegic -- can you do that on a plane?

Answer: Sometimes yes, sometimes no. (Reuters, Frontier apologizes to quadriplegic passenger) (via Consumerist)

3) Question: Why is my town spending $36,000 to dump all 8 million gallons of water from our reservoir?

Answer: Sometimes when a drunk guy urinates in a town's reservoir, the town will drain the whole reservoir rather than "deal with the 100 people who would be unhappy that [it is] serving them pee in their water." It happens. (Associated Press, Man urinates in water, city flushes 8M gallons) (via Jonathan Turley)
