Good comeback…..

 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 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 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.
