The Lawyer And The Traffic Policeman

              A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a traffic policeman.
              He thinks that he is smarter than the traffic policeman because he is a lawyer, and is certain that he has a better education than any traffic policeman. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the traffic policeman’s expense!!
               Traffic policeman says, "Licence and registration, please."
              Lawyer says, "What for?"
              Traffic policeman says, "You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign."
              Lawyer says, "I slowed down, and no one was coming."
              Traffic policeman says, "You still didn’t come to a complete stop. Licence and registration, please"
              Lawyer says, "What's the difference?"
              Traffic policeman says, "The difference is, you have to come to a complete stop. That's the law. Licence and registration, please!"
              Lawyer says, "If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I'll give you my licence and registration, and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don't give me the ticket."
              Traffic policeman says, "Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir."
              The Lawyer exits his vehicle.
              The traffic policeman takes out his baton and starts beating the lawyer. He says, "Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?"
