Court Enquiry of Why I Lock My Locker
A LAWYER was trying to undermine a police officer's credibility during a cross-examination.
Lawyer: Officer, did you see my client fleeing the scene?
Lawyer: Officer, who provided this description?
Officer: The officer who went to the scene.
Lawyer: A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?
Officer: Yes, sir, with my life.
Lawyer: 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?
Officer: Yes, sir, we do.
Lawyer: Do you have a locker in the room?
Officer: Yes, sir, I do.
Lawyer: Do you have a lock on your locker?
Officer: Yes, sir.
Lawyer: Why is it, then, that if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with them?
Officer: Sir, we share the building with the court complex and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.
