The lawyer asks, “What for? Did I make a mistake?”
The officer responds, “You didn’t come to a exactly stop at the stop sign.”
The lawyer says, “I slowed down and nobody was coming.”
“You still didn’t come to a complete stop. License and registration please,” say the cop impatiently .
The lawyer says, “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my license and registration and you can give me the traffic ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me the traffic ticket.”
The cop says, “That sounds fair, please exit your car.”
The lawyer steps out and the cop takes out his nightstick and starts beating the lawyer with it.
The cop says, “Do you want me to stop or just slow down?”
