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 work in the mortgage business. I read your post about the guy at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage who was fired over a 50-year-old conviction for putting a cardboard cutout of a dime in a laundromat's washing machine under the new federal background check policy for banks. I guess that means I'm completely hosed for my 14-year-old conviction for accidentally not paying for an omelet at Denny's, right?

Answer: Correct. (The Consumerist, Bank Of America Fires Investment Banker Over 1998 Dine & Dash At Denny’s)

2. Question: Suddenly, Siri won't answer my questions on where I can find hookers in China. Is my iPhone broken?

Answer: No, your iPhone still works but Apple has reprogrammed Siri not to answer that question as that information violates Chinese law. (China DailyApple blocks Siri's prostitute-finder function) (via Legal Juice)

3. Question: I am a 10-year-old boy and I'm at the police station for career day. A police officer just asked a group of us to clean his police car. We don't have to do that, do we?

Answer: You should not have to do that, no, but just realize you might get shot with the Taser if you refuse. (RT, Cop shoots 10-year-old boy with Taser for refusing to clean patrol car)
