Funnies

Trustworthiness of Witness

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.’

A prompt recess was called until the laughter subsided.

Have an awesome day, and weekend, and I hope your March comes in – and goes out! – like a lamb.  :D

  1. I’ve worked with some pretty skeezy lawyers. Not all of them are bad, but I think that lock is justified!

    LOL I know exactly what you mean, Spark! I’ve known a few in my life and haven’t met many honorable ones. Kind of makes me glad in a way I decided not to become one, like it was recommended to me. Perhaps I should have been insulted by that? O_o Hmmm.
