Alibi Testing Potential in Polygraphic Examination

"Elliot Aronson’s Social Psychology reads: “It would be good if there were an infallible examination to establish whether someone is lying […]. The police could ascertain whether the suspect’s claim that while the crime was being committed he was eating a sandwich at home is true.” The question of reliability of the alibi of those suspected of committing a crime is frequently a problem for officers of law enforcement and prosecution.

Polygraph examination could help to determine the actual whereabouts of a given person when the crime was being committed."(...)
