    Any further questions?

    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
    policeman'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 erupted in laughter, and a prompt recess
    was called. The
    officer on the stand has been nominated for this
    year's "Best Comeback"
    line -- and we think he'll win.
