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 was in line at the all-you-can-eat seafood buffet when the guy in front of me completely cleaned out the remaining eight Alaskan King crab legs that were in the container. Outrageous! That naturally led to a fistfight and now I am on trial for assault. Nobody would convict me for this, would they? He took all the crab legs!!

Answer: I would not count on that defense working. Also, are you aware that all-you-can-eat restaurants usually refill the containers of crab legs after they become empty? (Lancaster Online, Man's appetite for crab legs sparks alleged assault at all-you-can-eat buffet)

2) Question
: I was pulled over by police for speeding. Actually, I was going 190 mph, to be exact. Is that a U.S. record? 

Answer: The blogosphere does not appear to track such records, but as of this week I see that you are at best the silver medal winner. (The Associated Press, Motorcyclist clocked going 193 mph on NY highway)

3) Question: I saw on the TV show "Cops" that you can defeat a store's security sensors by placing items you want to steal in a pocketbook lined with aluminum foil. Is this pretty much foolproof, as I have some grocery items I want to shoplift from the Kmart? 

Answer: I cannot vouch for the aluminum foil theory, but I do know that even if you beat the security sensors, you still need to beat the store's Loss Prevention Officer. (CBS Minnesota, Charges: Grandma Shoplifter Learned From TV Show 'Cops')
