This past week, the American Association of Police Polygraphists held its annual seminar at the Amway Grand Hotel in Grand Rapids, Michigan. On the last day of the seminar (Friday, 5 May 2015), during the lunch break, someone's fear regarding an unattended piece of equipment resulted in a SWAT team being dispatched:

I wouldn't doubt it if someone in the crowd that was on PP in the past said something like, "oh no, this is Joe McCarthy's 'falling down' moment"  lmao

What do ya bet Dan?

Joe, it seems they have no appreciation of the nightmarish TX polygraph public relations tsunami that is spooling up.

You gave them plenty of warning, though.

AAPP as an association has never wronged me, I was only referring to some people that may have been at that conference who were also at AAPP. 

As far as everything else goes, TAPE, Maria, Rick, Jay, Bill Paker, et al. can end this whenever they want.  I guess it is just easier for them to lie to themselves and others than it is to admit when they have been wrong.

Typical, All the Texas current and former law enfacement examiners involved like Rios, Parker, Shepard, St. John and the rest of them prove, is there is a need to look at all departments in any agency. 

It does scare me that they are allowed to get away with the lies they get away with.  Makes me wonder, what have they lied about or procedures they ignored in the past that may have runnier someone by putting them in prison?  It's a fair question.
