Corruption in law enforcement



At the height of a corruption trial, the prosecuting attorney attacked a witness. "Isn't it true," he bellowed, "that you accepted five hundred thousand dollars to compromise this case?"

The witness stared out the window, as though he hadn't hear the question.

"Isn't it true that you accepted five hundred thousand dollars to compromise this case?" the lawyer repeated. The witness still did not respond.

Finally, the judge leaned over and said, "Sir, please answer the question."

"Oh," the startled witness said, "I thought he was talking to you."
