Come-Back Line Of The Year
Lawyer tries to trip up a police officer on the stand

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 locker room in the police station - a room where you
change your clothes in preparation for you 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 a 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 the year’s “Best Come-Back Line of The Year”
