Digithead,  Would you care to post the source of your information as I requested.

I have seen what purports to be a copy of the examiners report on his Polygraph from 3/26/97 and it contains NO information regarding any admissions he may have made.
Based on question 4. I would have to conclude that he admitted to illegal drug use before the exam not after.
Here is a link to the report.

My statements that the polygraph failed to detect his most serious crimes are true. The only thing they pinned on him were minor parole violations. Duncan was not revoked for failing this polygraph, he was revoked for absconding. Given how post-conviction polygraph is sold, shouldn't we expect more from it? If it worked as sold, Joseph Duncan would have been caught for the Seattle murders. It didn't. You can try to spin it but reliance on the polygraph failed society in this case.

By the way, here is a link from the Spokesman Review that details Duncan's travels in this time frame:

OK so Digithead says they are true but I guess he doesn't have a source to back up his assertion. The link he provided certainly doesn't.  I guest he must have had a vision or a dream or perhaps found it in a fortune cookie.  

Could you at least scan the fortune cookie and post it so it doesn't look like you just made it all up?

Let's see, Duncan wasn't a suspect in the Seattle murders until after he was caught for the Groene case in 2005 and admitted that he did it. The sources are his polygraph tests in that time frame (1996-97) that did not uncover the fact that he murdered two little girls. It seems a clear case of polygraph failure to me, what other proof would you like? Do you really think the polygraph "worked" in this case?

OK Digithead Let me see if I have your positon correct. DUNCAN passed all of his polygraphs until the one he took on the day the 2 little girls disappeared, 3/26/97,WHICH HE FAILED and because he didn't confess to murdering 2 little girls that no-one knew were missing yet, after FAILING this polygraph, your contention is the polygraph didn't work even though he FAILED THE POLYGRAPH.

With logic like that I predict a bright future for you in politics.

What exactly did this failed polygraph uncover? That he smoked pot and didn't tell his parole officer that he was spending time with his girlfriend and her two children. He was not revoked for these violations; he was revoked after he absconded. Post-conviction polygraph is sold that it can uncover serious trangressions yet it failed to do that in this case, why? Because Duncan was able to fool the polygrapher into thinking he had uncovered all there was to uncover. If I were a polygrapher, I wouldn't chalk this one up in my win category.

By the way, the two girls that Duncan admitted murdering were abducted July 6, 1996. His failed polygraph didn't come until March 26, 1997, more than 7 months later. There is a gap of more than 8 months between between his passed June 1996 test and his failed March 1997 test of the available polygraph tests on the web.  These are dated January, May, and September of 1995 and then it skips to June of 1996 and then March of 1997. Do you really think that he had no other polygraphs in this time frame? I'll remind you that he was a paroled Level III offender, is it common practice to let more than 9 months and then 8 months go by between tests for Level III offenders?

Additionally, Duncan is no longer a suspect in the March 26, 1997 murder of Deborah Palmer so it's not relevant to the case anymore.

Anyone out there want to bet me that he didn't have more victims in this time frame? I'm guessing that he did. Heck, I'll even give you 100-1 odds...

Go ahead, spin away....

At this point can you cite a SINGLE POLYGRAPH that he PASSED after murdering those two girls? Can you cite  a single polygraph he passed after murdering anyone?

I don't think you can.

So tell me what good was the failed polygraph? What did it achieve? Did it prevent him from reoffending? Did it deter him in any way, shape or form? No, it merely demonstrates the futility of its use when we really need it to work.

And you answered none of my questions, so I'll restate them:

Do you really think that he had no other polygraphs in this time frame?

Is it common practice to let more than 9 months and then 8 months go by between tests for Level III offenders?

How about my bet that he had more victims, do you really think he didn't have more victims in this time frame?

In 1978 when he was 15-years-old Duncan was sentenced to Dyslin's Boys' ranch in Tacoma fo raping a 9-year-old boy at gunpoint, he told a therapist who was assigned to his case that he had bound and sexually assaulted six boys, according to a report by the Associated Press, he also told the therapist that he estimated that he had raped 13 younger boys by the time he was 16. In 1980 Duncan was sentenced to 20 years in prison for raping a 14-year-old boy at gunpoint.

WHAT WAS HE DOING OUT OF PRISON?

Why wasn't he civilly committed under the Washington State Community Protection Act of 1990?

Why do you want to hold Polygraph responsible when it was the Department of Corrections, The Parole Board, and his P.O. that had the authority to keep him in or send him back?

What about the State Psychologist in 2000 that determined that he was not a violent sexual predator.?

What about his P.O. who knew that he was beginning to break his conditions regardng drug use and possession of a firearm because he was arrested in possession of a gun and drugs ?(he did 30 days in jail instead of returning to prison)

The polygraph Examiner DID HIS JOB.  He reported Duncan had failed his test. The Department of Corrections decides whether or not to act on that information.



And you answered none of my questions, so I'll restate them:

I don't know for sure, I haven't seen any proof that he had any other tests in that time frame. NEITHER HAVE YOU at this POINT YOU ARE JUST GUESSING OR LYING.

Is it common practice to let more than 9 months and then 8 months go by between tests for Level III offenders? I really can't comment on common practice in the location he took his tests. He may have failed to appear for a scheduled polygraph or his P.O. may have got busy and failed to schedule one at the appropriate time. I don't know but NEITHER DO YOU ONCE AGAIN YOU ARE JUST GUESSING

How about my bet that he had more victims, do you really think he didn't have more victims in this time frame?
I don't know whether or not he had more victims,BUT YOU DON'T EITHER

He was paroled on the belief that the containment method - which relies on the polygraph - could prevent him from reoffending. Obviously, it didn't...

They didn't have enough evidence at the time to civilly commit him...

There's a lot of blame to go around. This case demonstrates a systematic and systemic failure of the criminal justice system...

Actually, he was a level III offender but they didn't have enough information to civilly commit him. Remember, they did not know that he had murdered people at the time he finished his sentence...

Because you know as well as I do that it's standard practice to do this rather than revocation as the system usually strives for the least restrictive placement. Plus shock incarceration was in vogue at the time...

Yes, he uncovered that Duncan smoked pot and was at his girlfriend's house without his parole officer's permission. How about those two murders he committed. How'd the polygraph miss that?

How can I be lying when I asked a question? And why are you unwilling to speculate on this when you'll speculate on just about everything else? Oh yes, it's because you know the probable answer and it doesn't make the polygraph look good....

Yup, I'm guessing he had more polygraphs in this time frame since the conditions of his parole mandated them every 90 days. See here:

I don't know for sure but sadly, I'm willing to bet that he did.

As post-conviction polygraph is touted by those that sell it, it's supposed to provide valuable feedback on compliance with supervision and treatment. It somehow missed that he murdered two children. There's no way to spin that, the polygraph failed to detect his most serious crimes...
