    What's sad is that if the guy had gotten hired and attempted the same kind of deception against a citizen, they would have defended him, put him on paid leave, etc.

    So either they admit that the Polygraph is a flawed device or they discriminated against the applicant for his choice of reading material.

    What's to say that he wasn't just nervous about a polygraph in general (as most people are) and trying to find comfort in a book that tells what a polygraph looks for.

    just another stupid way to not hire someone who might or might not be a valuable employee. Its a fact the majority of the people who tell the truth on the lie detector and admit to certaint hings that were in fact illegal still get the job anyways just forbeing honest. whats even more sad is those who even tell the truth end up getting invovled in illegal crap anyways after getting a position on the force. Just me but I cant count how mnay sheriff deputie parties I've been to and drank moonshine, underage consumption and well the list could go on really...At this point in my life if I was to be charged with anything i would be compelled to look at the arresting officer and ask: For real? Are you serious?

    Ill second that. How about the hypocrisy here. How many times have you heard here that guns arent dangerous, its the people who use them for the wrong reasons who are. But reading a book on beating a lie detector test immediately makes you a jack booted thug in training? Why not apply the same mentality here as towards guns: its not the knowledge, its how you use it that makes it good or bad.

    How do we know his response was a lie? Maybe he was telling the truth and he hadn't looked at the book.
