Lock on the Locker.
This was forwarded to me by a good friend and is supposed to be a true story:
A defense attorney was cross-examining a police officer during a felony trial. It went like this:
Q. Officer, did you see my client fleeing the scene?
Q. Officer, who provided this description?
Q. Do you trust your fellow officers?
Q. With your life? Let me ask you this then officer - do you have
a locker room in the police station - a room where you change your
clothes in preparation for you daily duties?
Q. And do you have a locker in that room?
Q. And do you have a lock on your locker?
Q. Now 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?
With that, the courtroom erupted in laughter, and a prompt recess was called.
The officer on the stand has been nominated for this year's "Best come-back" line and we think he'll win.
