He'll Win?

If you ever testify in court, you might wish you
could have been as sharp as this policeman. He
was being cross-examined by a defense attorney
during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to
undermine the police officer's credibility...

Q:
'Officer -- did you see my client fleeing the
scene?'

A:
'No sir. But I subsequently observed a person
matching the description of the offender,
running several blocks away.'

Q:
'Officer -- who provided this description?'

A:
'The officer who responded to the
scene.'

Q:
'A fellow officer provided the description of
this so-called offender. Do you trust your
fellow officers?'
A:
'Yes, sir. With my life.'

Q:
'With your life? Let me ask you this then
officer. Do you have a room where you change
your clothes in preparation for your daily
duties?'
A:
'Yes sir, we do!'

Q:
'And do you have a locker in the room?'

A:
'Yes sir, I do.'

Q:
'And do you have a lock on your locker?'

A:
'Yes sir.'

Q:
'Now why is it, officer, if you trust your
fellow officers with your life, you find it
necessary to lock your locker in a room you
share with these same officers?'

A:
'You see, sir -- we share the building with the
court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been
known to walk through that room.'

The
courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a
prompt recess was called. The officer on the
stand has been nominated for this year's 'Best
Comeback' line -- and we think he'll
win.
