One Response to A Wise Saying – Part 72

  1. Andy says:

    There has been a rash of actions that are hard to determine who is telling the truth and who is not. There are all sorts of rape cases-now one hitting FSU. There is the Dolphins bullying scandal. I do not know why we have the technology and do not use it in our legal system. Simply I am talking about the use of polygraph tests. This may not be perfect but it sure beats he-she/she -he said. This will give a working knowledge of what really happened. It is possible to have two truths to the same issue-such as in a rape case-perhaps the woman believes she did not give consent and the man believes she did. This is a technology that we have, why not use it? Why is this not admissible in court? Anyone can lie under oath and a good lier will get a jury to believe them. Start using the polygraph in judicial proceedings and let the jury hear the results.
