I completely agree with this article on polygraph tests. Their place is on trashy TV shows like Maury but not in serious discussions of serious issues and definitely not in law enforcement.
Like the author’s article, I don’t say this to express disbelief in the accusations against Kavanaugh. I believe that the accusations are true. As I said before, I don’t believe they are evidence of anything but piss-poor parenting on the part of the parents of all three participants. But once they are made, they should definitely become part of public inquiry.
