Creation of brain level activity lie detector
The world we live in is rife with criminals and prisoners clogging prisons and jails. Some of them are innocent and most are not. They are sent to prison after a time consuming process called a trial that should be fair. However, it seems to me and my 57 years that fair in the legal system is based on how much money you can throw at a lawyer. This idea will never be implemented by any congress or senate because approximately 92% of these people are lawyers and they need to protect their after government jobs. However, a nation that has put a man on the moon, solved complex issues like color television, and etc.., certainly has the ability to capture the thought process of our brain that tells ourselves when we are lying. I am not talking about skin sensors and heart beat monitors that must be interpreted by some statistician. I am saying that our brain tells us when we lie. I personally have never told the slightest little white lye without the conscious thought that I was lying. Some sort of medical device that could recover this thought would immediately send the guilty to jail and leave the innocent free. The entire world’s criminal justice system should be eliminated and replaced with a person who connects a suspect to a machine and asks; did you kill that person. Yes it is radical, but if we develop it, we save billions per year of tax money and eliminate fraud in corporate America that steals billions from innocent investors.
