Nobody is required to take one. Any attorney would tell you DON’T. Results are not admissible in court and it’s just hocus pocus on Locust St…..or at any other police headquarters. Even when someone passes, they like to tell them they failed. And yes, there are bad polygraphers and other factors can make the subject give wonky readings.
Deb Bradley is naive and took one because in her reality, she doesn’t like to be accused of not cooperating.
Jeremy Irwin just stated on TeeVee that he has not taken one.
Capt. Young has given fake kudos to the couple for stating that they have not stopped cooperating, and slipped in a little dig of public doubt…he said detectives have been in the office and at the phones alllllllll night and morning, but they have not heard from the couple. He’s kinda bitchy when he gets it tossed back in his face.
