Policeman Being Questioned

What is your response?

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 policeman'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 erupted in 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.
