Police Officer Gets GRILLED by a Lawyer in Court. His reply is priceless!

On the off chance that you ever testify in court, you may wish you could have been as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defense attorney during a felony trial. The legal advisor was attempting to undermine the policeman’s validity…

Q: “Officer — did you see my client escaping the scene?”

A: “No sir. Be that as it may, 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 court ejected in chuckling, and a brief break was called. The officer on the stand has been nominated for this year’s “Best Comeback” Line — I think he’ll win.
