Cops and RobbersPosted: September 19, 2011
In the Fall of 1995, my Constitutional Law professor, Richard “Doc” Shugrue, told the story of some
clients crooks he represented as a young attorney. They stole a car and hid it in their apartment complex. One afternoon, they observed cops going door to door in the complex. Feeling trapped, they walked out and beelined to the cops, confessing, “You caught us, officers. We admit that we stole that car over there.”
The cops responded, “Thanks for being honest. We were going door-to-door seeking contributions for the police benefit ball next month.”
