Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My restaurant just received a call from the police telling us that our account with the power company was past due and the power would be shut down in 20 minutes unless we went to CVS and purchased $1,450 in Green Dot prepaid debit cards. The police then told us to scratch off the back of the cards and give them the numbers so they could access the money. Of course we promptly complied. Police do this, right?

Answer: Uh, no. (Daily BulletinClaremont restaurant gets scammed)

2) Question: My good-for-nothing ex-boyfriend grabbed my purse out of my apartment. He later returned it to me at work and when I opened it I found that he had defecated inside my purse. Yes, I'm talking human feces in my purse! Please tell me he can be charged with some heinous crime for doing this.

Answer: He can be charged with disorderly conduct, criminal damage to property and theft for defiling your purse in that way. (DL-Online, Police accuse man of defecating in ex-girlfriend's purse)

3) Question: I am from Iran, and I'm trying to buy an iPad at an Apple store here in the U.S. Does anyone at these Apple stores speak Farsi? 

Answer: You might want to keep the Farsi and the "from Iran" comments to yourself. Otherwise, no iPad for you. (, Customer: Apple Store denied me iPad for speaking Farsi)
