In other words, a lie detector test.
Not a lie detector test.

Voice analysis which is not admissible anywhere to determine if a person is lying-- as opposed to your lie detector test, which monitors pulse rate and breathing which is more reliable and is admitted under a limited set of circumstances.

No test is needed to determine when you are lying, Pinocchio: you lie when you blink.

ok... again.... psychopaths routinely pass lie detector tests.
Actually, no. While psychopaths are pathological liars in many instances, they have the same fear of detection and getting caught (and the consequences) as anybody else. They can't override their blood pressure response.

There is little scientific evidence to support the reliability of polygraphs.

Despite claims of 90%- 95% reliability, critics charge that rather than a "test", the method amounts to an inherently unstandardizable interrogation technique whose accuracy cannot be established.

A 1997 survey of 421 psychologists estimated the test's average accuracy at about 61%, a little better than chance.[15] Critics also argue that even given high estimates of the polygraph's accuracy a significant number of subjects (e.g. 10% given a 90% accuracy) will appear to be lying, and would unfairly suffer the consequences of "failing" the polygraph.
In the 1998 Supreme Court case, United States v. Scheffer, the majority stated that "There is simply no consensus that polygraph evidence is reliable" and "Unlike other expert witnesses who testify about factual matters outside the jurors' knowledge, such as the analysis of fingerprints, ballistics, or DNA found at a crime scene, a polygraph expert can supply the jury only with another opinion...".[16]

Also, in 2005 the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals stated that "polygraphy did not enjoy general acceptance from the scientific community".[17] In 2001 William G. Iacono, Distinguished McKnight University Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience and Director, Clinical Science and Psychopathology Research Training Program at the University of Minnesota, published a paper titled "Forensic "Lie Detection": Procedures Without Scientific Basis" in the peer reviewed Journal of Forensic Psychology Practice. He concluded that "Although the CQT[clarify] may be useful as an investigative aid and tool to induce confessions, it does not pass muster as a scientifically credible test. CQT theory is based on naive, implausible assumptions indicating (a) that it is biased against innocent individuals and (b) that it can be beaten simply by artificially augmenting responses to control questions.
Although it is not possible to adequately assess the error rate of the CQT, both of these conclusions are supported by published research findings in the best social science journals (Honts et al., 1994; Horvath, 1977; Kleinmuntz & Szucko, 1984; Patrick & Iacono, 1991). Although defense attorneys often attempt to have the results of friendly CQTs admitted as evidence in court, there is no evidence supporting their validity and ample reason to doubt it. Members of scientific organizations who have the requisite background to evaluate the CQT are overwhelmingly skeptical of the claims made by polygraph proponents."[18]

Polygraph tests have also been criticized for failing to trap known spies such as double-agent Aldrich Ames, who passed two polygraph tests while spying for the Soviet Union.[19] Other spies who passed the polygraph include Karl Koecher,[20] Ana Belen Montes,[21] and Leandro Aragoncillo.[22] Noted pseudoscience debunker Bob Park recently commented, "The polygraph, in fact, has ruined careers, but never uncovered a single spy."[23] Polygraph examination and background checks also failed to detect Nada Nadim Prouty, who was not a spy but was convicted for improperly obtaining U.S. citizenship and using it to obtain a restricted position at the FBI.[24]

PROLONGED polygraph examinations may also be a tool by which confessions are extracted from a defendant, as in the case of Richard Miller, who was persuaded to confess largely by polygraph results combined with appeals from a religious leader.

Looks like there's quite a bit of doubt from the poor "child" Trayvon supporters here. So much in fact that they are creating testimony as they type it in some of these posts.

Facts are the facts people ......it's in open court and what being presented by the State prosecutors is not matching up with what some of you are posting here.

The ONLY reason this case was brought to trial was to allow all of the facts (which they all were aware before zimmermans arrest) to be brought out in a public forum and not have a single judge or state prosecutor make a decision.

Continue to make up your own story at the end of the trial day, continue to follow poverty pimps like Sharpton and Jackson who will encourage you to burn your own Nieghborhoods down, continue to stay silent when black on black murders are a everyday occurrence, continue to follow politians who will do nothing but keep you defendant on govt benefits for your vote........it's all a never ending cycle which will have you spinning your wheels going no where..

GZ passed with flying colors. Not a surprise though since all evidence seems to prove he was telling the truth.
gee... he seemed to assault people over and over.... like law enforcement officers, ex girlfriends, female bar patrons, female family friend.... and now an innocent black kid walking home from the store. and... he seemed to lie over and over.... like saying he was never part of a pretrial diversionary program, or while apologizing to Martin's parents, that he said he thought the kid was much older (he told the 911 dispatcher it was a teen), like he didn't know the name of a street (one that he lived on for 3 years), like.. "I gots no money, yer honour". So ya..... psychopaths (you know... he guys who routinely do the same things over and over again) routinely pass lie detector tests.... no surprise here.

It is this Kind of Negro the entire civilized world sees with disgust. The only place your kind is welcomed and honored is in Africa among The Land Of The Monkeys.

Not a lie detector test, no matter how hard you stomp your feet.

Putting aside we already know that on top of everything else: the pedophile is a liar.

Hey numbnut!...You know how to read?
"A day after killing Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman passed a police lie detector test when asked if he confronted the teenager and whether he feared for his life “when you shot the guy,” according to documents released today by Florida prosecutors."
"
According to a “confidential report” prepared by the Sanford Police Department, Zimmerman, 28, willingly submitted to a computer voice stress analyzer (CVSA)“truth verification” on February 27. Investigators concluded that he “has told substantially the complete truth in regards to this examination.”"
"Zimmerman, the report noted,“was classified as No Deception Indicated (NDI).”"
"Along with questions about whether his first name was George and if it was Monday, Zimmerman was asked,“Did you confront the guy you shot?’ He answered,“No.” He was also asked,“Were you in fear for your life, when you shot the guy.” Zimmerman replied,“Yes.”"
"Before the CVSA test, Zimmerman--who was apparently not accompanied by legal counsel--signed a Sanford Police Department release stating that he was undergoing the examination “voluntarily, without duress, coercion, threat or promise.”"
"The lie detector test was requested by Chris Serino, a homicide investigator with the Sanford Police Department."

You forgot his sexual activities within his own family. He's a great guy (not). When you have that many different people come forward, you can't discredit or impeach everyone. He will probably walk because he may have been overcharged. He will never be free again. He will have to live in hiding or leave the country, wear a bullet proof vest. Who is going to want to hire him or his wife? When does her trial start? Maybe his sister can get in trouble for hiding $47,000 of the donations he took in through pay pal. He has used this trial to pay off his credit card debt. It seems like it is all part of his plan.
He has the nerve to laugh and smirk in court. Another Jodi Arias in the making. I bet if they put her and him in a cell, she'd come out on top. Of course, she has more balls than he will ever have.
no.... didn't forget... it's right there: female family friend. However, I probably should have said: sexual assault.

Law enforcement officer(s)??? He pushed one undercover police officer when he was drunk.
Ex girlfriends? There is only one ex-girlfriend and there is no evidence to suggest he was violent towards her. He said--she said. No charges, no proof, no arrest, and no conviction. Likely an out-and-out lie.
Female bar patron? Never heard of it. Provide some proof.
Female family friend? Again, never heard of it. Provide some proof.
So.... where do you draw the line??? 5 law enforcement officer assaults?? 3???? 6???? Give me a number. Oh... bwt thanks for pointing out his alcohol abuse problem.

The ex-girlfriend incident was enough to justify a restraining order.(ya... ya... GI Janie followed up with one of his own... but it was clearly a case of monkey see monkey do...)

Female bar patron.... here ya go:
