I have absolutely nothing to blog about this morning…

…but if you are looking for a laugh, check out the question of the day on the Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s Police Blog. (This is apparently a serious question that a reader sent in):

Q: I live near Aurora Avenue North and on two different occasions have caught prostitutes and their clients either in my driveway (in a car) or in my yard. Is it legal to shoot trespassers with a paintball gun, water cannon gun (Super Soaker), rubber band gun — essentially any “non lethal” weapon — within the city limits of Seattle?

A: It depends.

To find out why it depends, when you can legally attack prostitutes with paintball guns, and when it’s not such a good idea, read the full response to this question at Seattle 911.
