A funny joke about a policeman embarrassing a lawyer in court.

By  | 

As one policeman took the stand, a cross-examination quickly ensued. The defense attorney started questioning him about what he saw at the scene of the crime. It was clear that the lawyer wanted to undermine the policeman’s credibility.

However, things don’t go as planned for the lawyer. After asking him the “gotcha” question, the officer says something completely unexpected. The entire courtroom can’t help but burst into laughter.


Take a look below to see the whole story.

A defense attorney was cross-examining a Chicago police officer during a felony trial — it went like this:

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 your 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 this year’s “Best comeback”

Pass on the laughs. Share this story with your friends and family.
