    This policeman gave an unsuspecting lawyer a dose of his own medicine. When the defense attorney brought the officer’s integrity into question during a cross examination for a felony trial, the officer had the best comeback EVER:

    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.”
