Any and all bad legal advice, commentary, interpretation, etc. is welcome.
From classics such as "Cops have to tell you the truth if you ask if they're a cop, or else it's entrapment," to "You can't tell me to shut up! I have free speech!" we will mock it all.
FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE RULES
Rule 0: The linked material has to involve bad legal advice or a misstatement of the law. It doesn't have to be an explicit misstatement of a particular law to be a misstatement of the law. A statement solely about what the law should be is not a statement of the law.
Rule 1: No voting or commenting in linked threads. Thou shalt not vote in linked threads, and voting in linked threads shalt thou do not. Evidence of downvote or comment brigades will result in a warning, followed by deletion of the thread and/or ban for those involved.
Rule 1a: Although we can't physically restrain everyone from downvoting, please do your part to help prevent it, and ensure that all linked submissions use the non-participation format, i.e. 'np.reddit.com'.
Rule 2: Please remember to include a description of why the linked post is bad law. An explanation must be given within an hour that the post was made, otherwise it will be removed until an explanation is posted. Explanations are necessary even if the bad law seems obvious.
Rule 2a: If you link to an entire post you must point out more than one comment that is badlegal and give an explanation as to why those comments are badlegal. Simply linking to a post and saying "look at how bad all the comments are" is too lazy even for this sub.
Rule 3: Don't post links to your own internet arguments. This will be up to the mods' discretion. If you are engaged in a back and forth don't post it here. If you simply replied "no, that's wrong" you can still post it here. If you have any questions about whether a post is proper you can message the mods.
Rule 4: Internet comments are allowed as submissions only if they were posted on reddit or other forums. Do not link to the comment section of videos, articles, or similar pages.
