Police officer in cross examination
« on: May 11, 2019, 10:04:19 AM »
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.
