Question: “Officer — did you see my client fleeing the scene?”

Answer: “No sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.”

Question: “Officer — who provided this description?”

Answer: “The officer who responded to the scene.”

Question: “A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?”

Answer: “Yes, sir. With my life.”

Question: “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?”

Answer: “Yes sir, we do!”

Question: “And do you have a locker in the room?”

A: “Yes sir, I do.”

Question: “And do you have a lock on your locker?”

Answer: “Yes sir.”

Question: “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?”

Answer: “You see, sir — we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.”
