    Right, that's kinda the impression that I get, those who are legitimate are people who have previously administered polygraphs for a living, have their own machines, and can offer someone with the resources to pay for it enough practice so that there is literally no risk that they will not beat the test.

    Roy Moore hasn't taken a lie detector test because there is no win in it for him. If he takes the test and passes, his opponents will say he's a pathological liar and that is how he beat it. Or the test giver was corrupt. If he takes it and fails, the doom is obvious. But the most likely outcome is that he takes it and it is inconclusive. Then we are right where we are now.

    I am not here to debate lie detector tests. It is a tool used by law enforcement. Whether it is permissible or if it LDT can be "beat" is not the point.

    To me it shows willingness to prove innocence.

    Lawyers have clients take the test...not as proof is innocence, but as a show of the accused to clear himself.

    If I had a proclivity of dating young girls...the last thing I would want to do is to answer questions about dating young girls. I dont care how someone tells me how to beat one...I would not want nothing to do with taking one.

    law enforcement cannot use a Lie Detector test except as a way to get an innocent person to take a plea bargain... Pass or Fail it cannot be used in court, because the test is biased by the opinion of the person reading the test.

    His passing LD test would hold a lot of weight with me. His willingness to even take the test speaks volumes.

    Why? they are totally inaccurate. if the person reading the test has a bias against you, they would interpret you are lying.


    Did Moore do it I don't know, I want to see evidence.


    I sided with Bill Clinton until he did one thing, Raise his hand in 2 courts, and said "I will tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth." then lie.
