A Police Officer And A Lawyer

A defense attorney is cross-examining a police officer during a felony trial. The attorney asks the policeman, “Officer, did you see my client fleeing the scene?”

“No sir, but I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender running several blocks away.”

“Officer, who provided this description?”

“The officer who responded to the scene.”

“A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?”

“Yes sir, with my life.”

“With your life? Let me ask you this then, officer—in the locker room of your police station, do you keep a lock on your locker?”

“Yes sir.”

“So why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, that you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with those same officers?”

The cop smiles and replies, “Well, sir, we share the building with a court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.”
