Heres a joke I thought you guys would find funny.And for any attorneys on board sorry its just a joke.

If you ever testified in court, you might wish you could have been as sharp
as this Cop. 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?
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 that 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, that you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share
with those 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.

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
Comeback" line and we think he'll win.
