The Lie Detector Tests, Part Two: Polygrapher

The Final Word

Addressing polygrapher Howard Swabash in the audience, Dr. Phil says, "You have no doubt that he is molesting his daughter."


"No, sir," Howard replies.


"You base that on his results but also on his test behavior."


Howard says, "Many years of experience in dealing with people who are sexual predators."


Pointing out that the polygrapher has more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Phil says, "You know that the kind of high horse, arrogant behavior here is also very indicative of those people. I don't know. Is there another possiblity? Frankly, there is. You can never be sure unless you just keep piling up data. I think we're making a responsible run at it."


He thanks Howard for his time.
