Virginia State Police vs New York Lawyer
A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a Virginia State Trooper. He thinks that he is smarter than the Trooper because he is a lawyer from New York and is certain that he has a better education then any Cop from Richmond Virginia. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the State Trooper's expense.
The Trooper says," License and registration, please."
"What for?" says the lawyer.
The Trooper says, "You didn't come to a complete stop at the stop sign."
Then the lawyer says, "I slowed down, and no one was coming."
"You still didn't come to a complete stop, Says the Trooper. License and registration, please."
The lawyer says, "What's the difference?"
"The difference is you have to come to complete stop, that's the state law. License and registration, please!" the Trooper says.
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 give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don't give me the ticket."
"That sounds fair. Please exit your vehicle, sir," the Trooper says. At this point, the Trooper takes out his nightstick and starts beating the ever-loving sh** out of the lawyer and says, "Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?"
