Possible Retelling for the Teacher’s Reference
A police 0fficer pulls over a driver and orders him to produce his driver’s license because he was speeding.The driver claims that he has lost his license for drunk driving.The officer is surprised and asks him to show his vehicle registration papers.The driver then answers that he does not have those papers,for he stole the car and killed the owner, though nobody knows why he says so.The officer is so shocked that he cannot believe his ears,so he asks the driver to say it again.To confirm what he has said,the driver says the lady’s body is in the trunk.By now the officer
is horrified.so he calls the police station for support.When the police chief arrives,he orders the driver to open the trunk to find evidence of the crime.The driver opens it,but it is empty;and this shows that he is innocent.Unconvinced,the chief asks for his vehicle registration papers and license to see whether he is guilty~,,,The driver quickly hands over both to show that he is really innocent.The chief is now puzzled,saying that an 9mcer did report to him that the driver did not have a license,stole the car, and killed the owner.To this,the driver answers that he bets the officer must have said he was speeding as well.By saying so,the driver suggests that the officer,S accusation of his speeding must be false too
Discussion
Possible Answer for the Teacher’s Reference
Even if the driver cleverly shows that he is not guilty of stealing the car and killing the owner, this does not necessarily mean he did not speed.We must take all possibilities into consideration.
To begin with,we should try to find out whether there is any evidence to show the driver was speeding.For example,we can check the records of the radar device or police video,or find human witnesses.
Failing this,we may check whether the driver had any record of lying or cheating,or whether he had many previous traffic violations 0r a criminal record.If so,we can hardly trust his words.But this cannot yet provide conclusive evidence of his speeding.
We might like to investigate whether the police officer has a record of lying or cheating since his statement contradicts the driver’s.This is normally impossible,for a habitual liar would have been dismissed from the police force.In fact,a policeman is usually assumed to be honest unless proved otherwise in a court of law.
If the driver is found guilty of speeding,he should be punished for that as well as for the lies he told about the theft and murder
