Why are the police lockers locked?

Why are the police lockers locked? You have to love this police officer, who politely schools the lawyer during court!

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.
