Did you know Disneyland does not sell chewing gum? Walt Disney did not want guests inconvenienced by stepping on gum purchased in the park.

Polygraph tests are only 61% accurate, yet they can still be used as evidence in many courts. How 'bout that for BS?

Muscovy Ducks canít be raped!

The males of this species have a penis that is almost 8 inches long. They can fully extend it in 1/3 of a second! This means that females have a very short amount of time to escape if they donít want to mate with a particular male.

In order to not get raped, the females evolved a vaginal canal that twists and turns, blocking the penis from going completely in. The male can only impregnate the female if she relaxes all these muscles inside her! Biologists think this is the first evidence theyíve seen of evolution driving a competition in genitals.

I believe I said "many" courts, not all.

Admissibility - Polygraph results (or psychophysiological detection of deception examinations) are admissible in some federal circuits and some states. More often, such evidence is admissible where the parties have agreed to their admissibility before the examination is given, under terms of a stipulation. Some jurisdictions have absolute bans on admissibility of polygraph results as evidence and even the suggestion that a polygraph examination is involved is sufficient to cause a retrial. The United States Supreme Court has yet to rule on the issue of admissibility, so the rules in federal circuits vary considerably.

Did you Know, "In 2007, polygraph testimony was admitted by stipulation in 19 states, and was subject to the discretion of the trial judge in federal court

A]. If I am Arrested For a Crime, Can I be Forced to Take a Polygraph?

No! In no state can anyone be forced by the police or anyone else to take a polygraph examination.

B]. What are the State Laws Concerning Polygraph Admissibility?

Almost every state fits into one of two categories; those that find them completely inadmissible and those that allow their admission with "the stipulations of both parties" (meaning both you and the prosecutor agree to admit the test results as evidence).

C]. Supreme court deals with civil rights , not crime

United States v. Scheffer, 523 U.S. 303 (1998), was the first case in which the Supreme Court issued a ruling with regard to the highly controversial matter of polygraph, or "lie-detector," testing. At issue was whether the per se exclusion of polygraph evidence offered by the accused in a military court violates the Sixth Amendment

note.......... defense was trying to use the polygraph results

Supreme court hearing is on the sixth amendment..........

The Supreme Court will hear arguments Monday on whether to allow results of lie detector tests to be admitted as evidence in court. Currently, most defendants cannot introduce such results in a trial.

they are debating the civil rights of the defendant ....
