"If you leave the hospital I'll have to arrest you and your husband."

http://www.ktnv.com

Lincoln and Cecilia Rogers say their dreams came true when baby Lilia was born healthy just a week ago. But they describe a nightmare in getting her home from Summerlin Hospital.

"They said, ‘Well, if you leave the hospital I'll have to arrest you and your husband.'"

The couple says it got a second opinion and spoke with a pediatrician at Summerlin Hospital, who agreed that it would be okay if the couple took the baby home with minor jaundice as long as they signed a medical release form.

6-Year-Old Hauled to Psych Ward Despite Parent’s Wishes

http://moms.today.com

A little boy’s Los Angeles school sent him to the psychiatric ward against his mom’s wishes. Anxiety over his dad’s deployment to Iraq led the boy to “[draw] a violent picture and [write] that he wanted to die,” which prompted the school’s reaction. When the mother told officials she would have the boy see a therapist that day, she was told it was already out of her hands – the ambulance was on its way. The tyke spent 48 hours in the ward before finally being released to his mother’s care, the trauma of this experience only compounding the trauma of his father’s departure..

15yo prevented from delivering paper at 6:45am, it's illegal

http://www.dailymail.co.uk

Come rain or shine, hard-working teenager Sam Green-Jeffries ­diligently dragged himself out of bed to start his paper round at 6.45 every morning.

So it was a shock when he found that his two years’ devotion to duty meant he was breaking a bizarre law banning children from working before 7am.

Now the 15-year-old – whose dedication has won him a national award – may be forced to quit because starting later is making him late for school.

Incredibly, bureaucrats stepped in after they were tipped off by an anonymous busybody.

Malawi's Controversial Ban on Public Farting

http://www.theregister.co.uk

The law will be enforced in a similar way to that banning public urination, with local chiefs tasked with bringing noxious gasbags to justice. However, the minister has been challenged by the solicitor general, who says that the justice minister's interpretation of the offending Local Courts Bill clause is taking the piss. Said clause declares: "Any person who vitiates the atmosphere in any place so as to make it noxious to the public to the health of persons in general dwelling or carrying on business in the neighbourhood or passing along a public way shall be guilty of a misdemeanour."

'Speech or debate' clause invoked in investigations of House members

http://www.washingtonpost.com

Are you tired of politicians not being subject to the same rules as we are? The executive branch can't use wiretapping on congressman, despite the fact that they can use the patriot act on the rest of us. Now, the patriot act is bad, but shouldn't politicians be subject to the same rules as the rest of us?
