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 ....  

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 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.

Number 2:

Now We Know Why He Was a General  -----

In an recent 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."
