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 police officer’s credibility . . .
ATTY: Did you see my client fleeing the scene?
POLICE OFFICER: No, sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender running several blocks away.
A: Who provided this description?’
PO: The officer who responded to the scene.
A: A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do
you trust your fellow officers?
PO: Yes, sir. With my life.
A: 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?
PO: Yes sir, we do!
A: And do you have a locker in the room?
PO: Yes, sir, I do.
A: And do you have a lock on your locker?
PO: Yes, sir.
A: 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?’
PO: 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. The
officer on the stand has been nominated for this year’s ‘Best Comeback’
line — and we think he’ll win.
Now We Know Why He Was a General
In an interview, General Norman Schwarzkopf was asked if he thought there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harbored and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on America.
His answer was classic Schwarzkopf.
The General said, “I believe that forgiving them is God’s function… OUR
job is to arrange the meeting.”
