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 am a police detective in Los Angeles. Sometimes I like to send out tweets on Twitter with photos of bloody murder scenes that I investigate. Is that going to be a problem?

Answer: The LAPD has no set department policy pertaining to employees using social media, but it is conducting an internal investigation on the issue. Stay tuned. (The Associated Press, LAPD detective under fire for posting murder scene photo on Twitter)

2) Question: Yes, I know that these "Froot by the Foot" snacks contain trans fat, added sugars and artificial food dyes; lack significant amounts of real, natural fruit; and have no dietary fiber. But they are called "Froot." How can anything called "Froot" not be healthy for my children?! I feel misled, is there anyone out there that will sue on my behalf?

Answer: Yes, the Center for Science in the Public Interest has filed a class action on behalf of you and all other misled Froot-eaters. (Consumerist, Class-Action Lawsuit Claims Fruit Roll-Ups Are Unhealthy, Contain Little Fruit)

3) Question: The old geezer singing at this karaoke bar is so bad that I feel like my ears are starting to bleed. Seriously, I cannot take this another second. No jury would convict me if I just took this guy out with a punch, would they?

Answer: Yes, they would convict you. (The Associated Press, NY man convicted of punching karaoke singer, 79)
