1. Smart Policeman
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 .....
"Officer --- did you see my client fleeing the scene?"
