Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: OK, here is my plan for getting out of prison.The prison phone system charges inmates' accounts for calls and refunds the money if the call doesn't go through. But there is a glitch and the system reimburses inmates twice for incomplete calls. So I will make calls and then hang up until I accumulate the $1,250 I need to post bond and get out of jail. Yes?

Answer: That may work in the short term, but expect your stay on the outside to be quite brief. (The Associated Press, Man uses jailhouse phone glitch to get released)

2) Question: This is a free country! If I want to hang big red fake testicles from the trailer hitch of my truck, then I can hang big red fake testicles from the trailer hitch of my truck. Right? 

Answer: That depends on whether your community considers big red fake testicles to be obscene or not. (The Post and Courier, Obscenity case will be heard by jury)

3) Question: I escaped from prison 32 years ago. You don't think those bozos are still loooking for me, do you?

Answer: They are. (The Associated Press, Murderer caught after 32 years on the lam)
