You're citing TV shows in which people appear with fictional dramas, staged for entertainment purposes, and assuming that anything that you see on these shows with regard to these dramas, or how they are allegedly explored and resolved, has anything to do with how anything works in reality. That polygraphs appear to work in such a fictitious setting, with reliable results, is not any kind of evidence that they work nearly so well in actual use. You might as well cite the story of Peter Pan as evidence that fairies are real.
You seem to be failing to understand the difference between the reality in which we all live and function, and obviously-fictional TV shows created strictly for entertainment purposes.
The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
The polygraph is pseudoscience and should be illegal to use for anything other than a parlor trick. There is no such thing as a machine that can detect lies or truth.
Zimmerman did take one, his lawyers suggested it and * donations paid for it, and he failed. I strongly suspect that his lawyers wouldn't have been nearly so quiet about it if he's passed. ( *donations from __Neo-Nazi friends of George Zimmerman__ and from innocent people who donated to Zimmerman in response to fake news stories, manufactured and circulated by __Neo-Nazi friends of George Zimmerman__, that Trayvon Martin had been found to have a criminal past, fake news stories that guns and drugs were found in Trayvon Martin's car ~ Trayvon was indeed barely old enough to have a driver's permit, but he didn't have a car~ and fake news stories that a star witness, his identity kept secret for reasons of his safety, backs up Zimmerman's story ~ the police tried very hard to find the star witness, and did track down the source of his stories, Zimmerman himself~ )

If only Zimmerman was an accomplished necromancer...
Then no one would be the wiser, at least for a bit.
Unlike AW76 and this thread.

If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
