Trusting His Fellow Police Officers with His Life

IMG_1813Q:  ‘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.
