Q: 

Should an admitted pedophile be allowed to have a website soliciting for minor little girls?

A:  Answer: No! Thank you for passing this on... Try here: http://www.nsopr.gov/ or here: http://www.familywatchdog.us/ As long as he doesn''t do it again and has paid his time then i see nothing wrong with it this ****** should be ban form all public places period I think it sounds illegal because it sounds like this man is supporting and even telling others how to be a pedophile and could lead to more perverted acts. One of these days there is going to be a vigilante movement that will deal with this clown. I hope that day is soon. I saw this too. It was horribly disturbing, because he didn''t actually break any laws, but we all know he is trolling for his next victim. Im not sure how this can be addressed legally, but something...

Q: 

Labor law or a call to corporate office?

A:  On the legalities, michr''s answer has it right. My advice-- and I know I''ll get plenty of thumbs down for it-- organize a union. Unless you are being sexually harassed or otherwise harassed for being in a protected group (race, religion, sex, national origin), your boss can be as abusive as he wants under the law. If you and your co-workers are sufficiently organized, you can fight back and not put up with that kind of sh*t. This is assuming, of course, you are in a job classification that can be represented by a union (not a supervisor) and that there''s a union that represents people who do your job (e.g. if you work as a bank teller, you''ll probably be out of luck). So if a union won''t work, I''d just suggest looking for another job, put in your two weeks...

Q: 

Is saying something like "f-a-g-g-o-t" lawful?

A:  Free speech. It is ethically wrong to insult someone though. I don''t know where you live, but in AMERICA, we can say whatever we want due to our constitution. We don''t ban words because that is a slippery slope, and the people are smart enough to know that. We don''t just ban words if someone is offended by them. That would be most offensive to me. You can say it as long as you are not committing a crime when you do. If you do that it is then deemed a hate crime and you get 3 times the punishment. It''s a civil matter not criminal but you can be fired from a job, suspended from a school or sued. Unless you use a hate word while attacking someone for no reason other than their sexual orientation, race or religion, then your going to jail for a long time. as...

Q: 

Virginia Tech..........gun laws don't work......criminals will always have guns?

A:  You are 100% correct. To the others that think guns would be harder to get, that''s extremely naive. Have you ever seen a "no questions asked" chance to turn in firearms? Literally tons. There are millions of firearms with no record of who owns them or where they are. There a currently millions of criminals that posses multiple firearms. The world is a huge place, criminals will get them somewhere else. Look at crime in some areas where guns are outlawed, you will get a big surprise. And access to mental health services will not help either. Mentally Ill get better because they want to. It doesn''t work with out the persons will to get better. A mentally ill person that wants to kill someone instead of getting help is going to do...

Q: 

Would I be able to take pictures off my neighbour to annoy him?

A:  --- You would be in violation of the MWI laws. --- Annoying your neighbor with a photo barrage would be: 3rd Degree Mopery with Intent to Gawk. --- If you use a telephoto lens on the camera it will be: 2nd Degree Mopery with Intent. --- Now those are if you are on your own lands when you take the images. If you are on a public sidewalk then not only would you be in violation of the MWI laws, but also the BSPS statutes. Probably 2nd Degree Barefoot shuffle on a Public Street with Intent. I hope so, and I hope he gets annoyed enough to bust the camera over your head as well! Yeah its called stalking sounds like you need a life. ANNOYING A NEIGHBOR IS quite easy just throw a dead rat into his window or in his garage entrance is enough to...

Q: 

The Legal System and the law of Unintended Concequences

A:  Quotas have been targeted for a while, and probably unfairly. After all, what other system is there which can be implemented across the board without way more effort than should probably be expended on admissions? Consider a population with 90% of one type of person and 10% of another. How many of the ten-percenters should a law School admit if it has 100 spaces in its First-year class? Is it the answer that it should admit students based upon merit and not upon the percent of being one type of person (or another)? What if no ten-percenters are admitted in 2003? Fair enough, it''s a small percentage of the population so every now and then the figure might be zero. What happens if there are no ten-percenters in 2004? 2005? Etc. - what if 2023 rolls around and no...

Q: 

Auto insurance question!?

A:  yep it''s illegal. Just drive the old car like you said you would, or notify them of what you are doing. YES! it''s illegal. that is the wrong thing to be doing, That is officially fraud, and if you''re in an accidnet they can legally NOT PAY. so bite the bullet, pay the difference-it is your car, and you''re having the fun of driving it. There''s no law against it per se, however should there be a claim the insurer will investigate once they find out your were driving. They will find out who the actual principal operator of the new car is (it''s not that hard to determine this) and once they determine that you and your dad were trying to pull a fast one on the company they will deny the claim, and possibly cancel the policy. This means you and your dad will become...

Q: 

Talking on cell phones while driving?

A:  NO Just a law against stupid PEOPLE Yes and many states already either have laws or are working on getting laws for this but I also thing that the first offense should be a fine of $1000.00. NO it''s the American idea of population control . The problem with the cell phone law is it is a state law. Not all states have this. I know New York and New Jersey have it, but it''s not enforced. It should be banned and then enforced properly. Drving and talking on a cell is already banned in Europe but not all countries enforce it properly. (Handsfree sets are legal) If they need to talk so much, why don''t they get a handsfree bluetooth set? They...

Q: 

Can landlord affect my credit?

A:  What your landlord can do Is first If he/she doesnt get your last months payment , He /she will be entitled to start a eviction process according to your states law. Should there be a court filing for eviction for non payment that is what will hurt your chances of renting some time down the road . Landlords in many places use screening companys or look them selfs for any kind of housing court related filings involving future renters . I hate to say this but go begging for loans from every one you know signing agreements to pay them back with in a certain reasonable time frame . When you vacate current unit make sure its clean and take pictures of everything from A to Z . If during your time renting that unit there was nothing other than reasonable wear and tear...

Q: 

Fired after revealing alcohol use by boss! *Help Please!*--Q

A:  Drinking on the job, or allowing people to drink on the job, is a very poor idea but it is not illegal. If management wants to allow it, they may. It is questionable whether you were fired for reporting the alcohol, or for the argument you had with your supervisor that made you decide to report it in the first place. It is also legal to fire you for refusing to sign the write up. Sorry, it seems like you may have gotten a raw deal but you don''t have any kind of supportable claim that I can see. File for unemployment and look for a new job. I apprectaite the reply. But does that mean, that the company cant fire an employee for drinking on the job even if i have proof of it? Today I have a meeting with one of the district managers and he wants to speak with me about what happened after I...
