Why all of the sudden you are posting this? Your court date must be getting close? Everyone knows OJ was guilty. Lie detector tests are not reliable.This lying and omitting of exculpatory evidence by officers is seriously hurting their credibility. This is a fact.
This fact seriously negatively affects law enforcement efforts. It puts other officers and citizens in harms way. The trust of the police from a community is essential.
If you take ten criminals and ten officers in a room and request for them to take a lie detector tests; all ten criminals will take it but only one officer will take it and there will be terms.
This is exactly why OJ Simpson was found not-guilty. Professional, law abiding police will tell you that this is a fact. It hurts their legitimate efforts!
Now in todays' paper the city council voted against merit over seniority and Starr honestly feels that it has been tragic that it hasn't been already in place. In essence they now have passed a bylaw that gives less qualified officers promotions over merit and professional grading results.So on Starrs way out he has sent the FPD further back away from the building of a sense of community.
The other side of lie detector tests is a guilty person could pass the test and an innocent person may fail the test. Criminals always take a lie detector because they have nothing to lose if they fail and everything to gain if they pass.
So if they are guilty and passed the lie detector they just got a free pass. Cops have everything to lose unlike most criminals if they fail the test even though they are innocent. So it isn't worth the risk unless you are a criminal.
