Vainglorious Coward writes: Polygraph "expert" Bruce Burgess who has worked with several trashTV shows has received a suspended sentence for lying to police about a traffic offense. Burgess, whose website promises "testing your honesty in the only way possible" pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice after lying about being the driver recorded by a speed camera. It appears that good old-fashioned coppering is what broke the case, rather than any technological chicanery, with the police officer commenting "my advice is — put your hands up at the first opportunity"
We can found no scientific discipline, nor a healthy profession on the
technical mistakes of the Department of Defense and IBM.
