02/18/10 Grif.Net – Comeback

A policeman 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.
