There's a new angle in the Trayvon Martin case. Apparently George Zimmerman passed a police administered lie detector test right after the incident - and passed.
According to a “confidential report” prepared by the Sanford Police Department, Zimmerman, 28, willingly submitted to a computer voice stress analyzer (CVSA) “truth verification” on February 27. Investigators concluded that he “has told substantially the complete truth in regards to this examination.”
Zimmerman, the report noted, “was classified as No Deception Indicated (NDI).”
Along with questions about whether his first name was George and if it was Monday, Zimmerman was asked, “Did you confront the guy you shot?’ He answered, “No.” He was also asked, “Were you in fear for your life, when you shot the guy.” Zimmerman replied, “Yes.”
Before the CVSA test, Zimmerman--who was apparently not accompanied by legal counsel--signed a Sanford Police Department release stating that he was undergoing the examination “voluntarily, without duress, coercion, threat or promise.”
Now, these tests are not infallible, but you have to be pretty damned good at deception, almost to the point of being a psychopathic liar who actually believes his own lies are the truth.
I doubt George Zimmerman is that good...although of course, if he is, the White is missing out by not immediately pardoning him and putting him to work on the Obama campaign, or sticking him in Jay Carney's slot as White House press secretary. Carney seems to be showing the strain lately, and is even suffering the fate of being mocked as he attempts to tell the usual fairy tales.:
I doubt he could pass a similar test on what he's putting out there and come up with the same results Zimmerman did.
