Analysis Error and Corrections

With analysis, if the conclusion is errant, we can (and must) go back and trace the root of the error.  It is a scientific process that allows for input and conclusion, repetition, input and conclusion, and so on.  

If the analysis is thoroughly done, the conclusion is very likely based upon at least several points within the language.  This means that the analyst must have erred in, for example, four or five separate places and there must be a different explanation for the sensitivity shown.  

Analysis by top professionals is almost ways checked by other professionals.  

An amateur often makes a conclusion that is not supported by the statement and the correction ends up being a great lesson.  The most common error made by amateurs is a rush to judgment.  This means taking a single indicator of deception and concluding deception by it.  Even upon review, the indicator of deception was likely an indication of sensitivity that had an alternate explanation.  Once the truth is learned, the sensitivity question is usually answered.  

When the analysis conclusion is based upon, let's say 5 points of sensitivity, each one of these points must be reviewed and re-considered, but it is a lot.  Would it mean that on each of these 5 points, the analyst was incorrect?

The greater the number of sensitivity (or deception) indicators, the less likely error is going to exist.  

When To Dig In One's Heels 

When the analysis is based upon overwhelming points of sensitivity throughout a statement or interview, I encourage the analyst to make no changes:  let it stand and see what time does to it.  

Here is why:

I have seen some very talented analysts say, "I must have been wrong; the subject passed the polygraph."  

This comes after the analyst's work has been reviewed by another analyst and two analysts found the exact same result.  

Slow down.  

I always ask that the polygraph pre-screen interview be reviewed for contamination.  

A polygraph when administered without contamination and only with the subject's own words is near impossible to beat.  

I have had two cases in which analysis and polygraph results have differed.  One case was extreme.  In both cases, I stood to be "wrong" and plainly so.  

Case One:   Child Molestation 

1.  Statement  

The accused wrote out a statement prior to the interview.  I concluded that mother's boyfriend molested her daughter while mother was not home, and, according to the statement, it took place in the little girl's bedroom shortly after dinner.  

I sent the statement to an instructor, without my analysis.  He sent back his finding:  the subject was deceptive, likely molested the little girl in her bedroom sometime early evening but before she went to bed.  

2.  Interviews 

The little girl's interview was recorded.  In her own language, she showed that he had 'tickled' her chest area under her shirt, while she was playing with dolls on her bed after dinner.  Mom was at work.  She said her mommy's "friend", using the name "Uncle" played this game but she did not like it.  

The mother was interviewed who was truthful in not knowing what had happened but stated that she did not believe it did happen.  She stated that her daughter was not known for making things up and "really liked" her new boyfriend. 

The suspect was interviewed and gave a lengthy account of his day, in great detail, but gave only a short account from dinner time to bed time.  His interview affirmed the analysis but he denied contact.  

Collateral interviews showed no concerns about boyfriend, and no concerns about child making up things.  

Boyfriend took and passed his polygraph.  

The analysis was plain, including the skip of time and the timeline the little girl gave.  The local police dismissed the analysis, and the boyfriend was permitted to return to the home where I learned, years later, he re-offended on the victim.  

He passed the polygraph because he "tickled" not "molested" his victim.  The polygraph used language that was not in the internal dictionary of the suspect.  This is precisely how we teach suspects to lie and to falsely pass a polygraph.  

This second case is much worse:  

Case Two:  Murder 

In this case, we have a battle, from my perspective,  of two forces.  One is Goliath, strong, large and overwhelming, the other is tiny David, young and weak.  

On one side is analysis of a 4 minute statement; nothing else.  This is David.  

a.  statement analysis of a 911 call 

nothing else.  

But on the other side:

a.  A complete and thorough police investigation with a cumulative 20 years experience in investigation and training.  

b.  All known facts of the case, privy to test results, interviews (plural) with the subject,

c.  collateral interviews 

d.  forensic evidence

e.  Suspect cooperation

f.  Suspect passed a polygraph

On one side is a short analysis where nothing else is known, while on the other side, there is a mountain of reasons to overrule the analysis.  I, personally, hold great weight to the polygraph. 

                            Which would you believe?

What would you do if you were told all of these things, and then were told, "statement analysis is junk science.  He passed his polygraph.  We collected all the evidence..."

If this were not enough, consider that in court, one of the two original investigators would testify against the conclusion of the analysis and stand upon the original clearing of the suspect.  

I, and those who worked with me, including in depth review later, concluded "deception indicated", which is not enough for a murder case.  In the analysis we concluded both "deception indicated" and "guilty knowledge" of the murder, but still, I was able to show the motive of the murder, plainly. 

In other words, there was no other conclusion for me to follow, and there was no way of dismissing each indication of deception, sensitivity and guilt.  

Yet, one short analysis versus an in-depth police investigation, a ton of material unknown to me, and a suspect who has passed his polygraph. 

He was found guilty of the murders after initially being cleared by police. 

When error exists in analysis, it can, and must, be traced and corrected.  By using a scientific process, when in error, we may find and correct the error. 

But when a statement is overwhelming, and no error can be found, even in light of various news announcements, the analysis should b left to stand. 

There are such cases.  

No one is willing to say "Casey Anthony was found not guilty, therefore..." and, there is other cases that have been dropped or even cleared by police in which the analysis still stands:

Baby Ayla.  

Baby Lisa. 

Amanda Blackburn.  

Several years ago, analysis showed that Lena Lunsford had guilty knowledge of her daughter's death but up until recently, the analysis appeared 'incorrect' by the standard of arrest or adjudication.  

When analysis is 'overwhelming' and has been checked, rechecked, and reviewed by other trained professionals, it should be left to stand. 

And wait...

"Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks" has proven to be truth. 

Truth is timeless. 

Truth is not impacted by time, culture, or opinion.  

In either of the two above cases, particularly the second, it would have been the easier path to fold the analysis but the road of less resistance is not always the correct course to take.  

As analysts learn to work in depth, they learn to trust the results of the science, and from past errors, learn how to go back and trace the origin of error, but when the conclusion of the matter is plain, they must stay with it.

Knowing how to detect deception is to enter an investigation fueled with truth.

Re Polygraph

Does the sheriff have doubts in it's accuracy, overall, doubts in his account, or were there questions he just scraped through?.

Family of missing mom holds out hope

MOUNTAIN GATE (AP) — The family of a Northern California mother of two who went missing while jogging is holding out hope she will be found alive.

Sherri Papini, 34, has been missing since she went for a jog Nov. 2 in the tiny town of Mountain Gate in Shasta County, a case some say resembles the 1998 unsolved disappearance of a teenager in a nearby town, the Sacramento Bee reported Saturday.

Her husband, Keith Papini, reported her missing when he came home from work and found that she hadn’t picked up their two children from daycare. Her cell phone and headphones were found near where she was reported missing, officials said.

Without a body or a suspect, investigators homed in on those closest to her — namely her husband.

The Sheriff’s Office announced last week that he had passed the lie-detector test, and that they confirmed his story that he was at work when she went missing.

It appears he’s telling us the truth,”said Sheriff Tom Bosenko.
“Generally, you can’t trick a polygraph.”

Many are wondering if the case is connected to the 1998 disappearance in nearby Shasta Lake of a teenage girl who resembles her.

Like Papini, Tera Smith, a blond 16-year-old Central Valley High School homecoming princess, was wearing running clothes the last time she was seen. Her body was never found.

In Smith’s case, detectives zeroed in on a possible suspect though they never made an arrest. Smith’s martial arts instructor, a man with a prior rape conviction, told investigators he dropped her off on the night she disappeared a few minutes’ drive from where Papini’s cellphone and earphones were found.

The similarities prompted Keith Papini to reach out to Tera Smith’s father, Terry Smith, for his advice.

“I didn’t have a lot of comfort to offer him. I’m not real confident that anything’s going to come out of it, but how do you tell somebody five days after their wife’s gone missing that she’s probably gone for good?”

Sheila Koester, Sherri Papini’s sister, also knew Smith, and the teen’s disappearance has been on her mind.

“For them to be so closely related in that we all went to high school with them, and they look like each other, it’s all very strange,” she said.

Koester believes her sister’s disappearance will end differently than Smith’s.

“We feel that she’s going to walk through the door at any time,” Koester said.

President Obama Claims He Cannot Pardon Snowden; He's Wrong
from the yes-you-can dept

In a big interview with the German media outlet Der Spiegel, President Obama was asked about his interest in pardoning Ed Snowden in response to the big campaign to get him pardoned. Obama's response was that he could not, since Snowden has not been convicted yet:

ARD/SPIEGEL: Are you going to pardon Edward Snowden?

Obama: I can't pardon somebody who hasn't gone before a court and presented themselves, so that's not something that I would comment on at this point. I think that Mr. Snowden raised some legitimate concerns. How he did it was something that did not follow the procedures and practices of our intelligence community. If everybody took the approach that I make my own decisions about these issues, then it would be very hard to have an organized government or any kind of national security system.

At the point at which Mr. Snowden wants to present himself before the legal authorities and make his arguments or have his lawyers make his arguments, then I think those issues come into play. Until that time, what I've tried to suggest -- both to the American people, but also to the world -- is that we do have to balance this issue of privacy and security. Those who pretend that there's no balance that has to be struck and think we can take a 100-percent absolutist approach to protecting privacy don't recognize that governments are going to be under an enormous burden to prevent the kinds of terrorist acts that not only harm individuals, but also can distort our society and our politics in very dangerous ways.

And those who think that security is the only thing and don't care about privacy also have it wrong.

Hate Hoax at Bowling Green State University

Bowling Green State University student Eleesha Long made her bid to join the Hate Hoax List on the day after the election by claiming to have been subjected to assault and a racial slur:

Long wrote a police complaint on November 9th that reads in part, “while walking down Crim St to ask for yard signs, three boys began to throw rocks at me.”

Long continued to write the white males shouted profanity at her while wearing Trump shirts.

Among the first clues that this was yet another hoax, she took her tale to Fakebook rather than calling 911.

A high % of hate hoax's adopt this outlet.

A BGSU officer took Long to the police station where she gave a statement.

However, throughout the investigation she changed her story multiple times.

Police soon confirmed that she was not present at the time and place the incident supposedly occurred.

Her text messages allegedly reveal her real motivation may have been frustration with friends and family who were Trump supporters. …

The police reports are laced with racist remarks against Trump supporters that she sent to her boyfriend and mother. According to reports, she used words like, “this is why you should take an IQ test to vote,” “I hope they all get AIDS,” “I haven’t met a decent Trump supporter yet.”

Typically of moonbats, Long expressed her hostility by weaponizing phony victimhood.

Here’s some good news:

Long was charged with falsification and obstructing official business.

The only way to stop the avalanche of hate hoaxes is to prosecute the hoaxers. This will undermine the corrosive liberal agenda, as the well of oppression will run dry, and also free up police to attend to real problems.

It seems like the most common form of defending any act associated with a group these days is to yell out "NOT ALL (Insert group here)".

And you have the "How dare you!" tactic, as well as claiming moral superiority by accusing the other party of "textbook bigotry" whilst never actually addressing what the original poster's legitimate concerns.

This is all an attempt to put the original poster on the defensive to try and divert attention away from the main issue.

The ideology of Islam teaches a very low view of women.

Next, it is anti homosexual.

Yet, the koran teaches the reward in the afterlife not only includes rape of virgins but "young boys like pearls"

This may explain the rape of little boys by those who stone homosexuals.

As to being sexually capable of violent rape: I believe the origin of such, which most men do not have, comes from earlier exposure to domestic violence, among other factors.

I had to laugh at Islamic Women's Council of NZ "denouncing" the Imam, but then following it up with a bald faced lie defending their own religion (always their first priority).

"The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had good relationships with his Jewish neighbours & encouraged Muslims to do the same," they said in a statement."

Election Inspires Phony Sexual Assault Claim


On November 11, the Kirkland Police Department received an email from a concerned citizen. It was a Facebook post from a female who stated she was sexually assaulted. She said Kirkland Police responded but would not investigate the case or even file a police report.

After a weeklong investigation officials finally tracked down the author of the original post at her work in Kirkland.

During the interview, the woman admitted she fabricated the entire event, and no assault occurred, and the Kirkland Police were never called.

Her reason: she was “distraught over the recent election.”

One of the things that makes me doubt Sherri Papini's husband is that TV interview when he said over and over "Bring her back. Bring her back. Bring her back. Bring her back.".

His statements "Bring her back" come so rapidly it leaves ZERO space afterward each plea AS IF THERE IS ACTUALLY NO REPLY.

I can't explain this well.

Okay, let's assume a hypothetical where a husband is innocent, and he tells the TV audience "Just bring her back!"

I would expect an innocent man, desperate to get his wife back, would need to say that only once to the camera AND would be silent after saying it, showing his face/emotions, and allowing that HUGE PLEA to resonate across the community.

But this guy can hardly stand to leave even a split second after saying "Bring her back", and we get a cascade of "Bring her back", like a waterfall.

He stumbles over himself to say it again and again, and one gets the feeling he knows there is no "response" to his plea "Bring her back."

A Northern California mother whose disappearance made national news was found bound with restraints, but alive on Thanksgiving morning along Interstate 5 in Yolo County, officials said.

Officers received information about 4:30 a.m. Thursday that Sherri Papini, who went missing while out for a jog on Nov. 2 in the tiny town of Mountain Gate, had been found near County Road 17 and I-5.

Papini was released by her captors, and despite being bound with restraints, was able to flag down a passing driver, the sheriff's office said in a news conference.

"She is safe, in stable condition and receiving medical clearance at an undisclosed hospital," the Shasta County Sheriff's Office said. "She has been reunited with her husband, Keith."

The sheriff's office did no give additional details as to what injuries Papini suffered, but that her injuries were non-life-threatening.

Sheriff Tom Bosenko said that investigators are looking for a dark-colored SUV driven by two armed Hispanic woman. Anyone who see anything is asked to call the Shasta County Sheriff's Office at 530-245-6135.

Investigators believe that Papini was abducted from the area where she went out for a jog, but no motive has been released.

REDDING (CBS13) – Sherri Papini, the Redding mother who disappeared while jogging three weeks ago, has been found safe, and now law enforcement officials say she was kidnapped.

Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said Papini was kidnapped on November 2 and had been bound by her captors. Around 4:30 a.m. today, they released her along County Road 17 near Interstate 5 in Yolo County.

She was bound with restraints but was able to flag down a motorist.

CHP, Yolo County Sheriff’s deputies, and medical aid arrived on the scene. Papini was taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries she suffered while in captivity.

Shasta County Sheriff’s Department deputies are looking for two Hispanic females who are said to be driving a dark-colored SUV. At least one of them is armed with a handgun.

Papini is in stable condition and is receiving medical treatment at a local hospital. She has been reunited with her husband.

Bosenko said it’s unknown if Papini’s knew her captors, or what their motives may have been.

“I spoke over the phone with her husband, Keith, and he is overjoyed with the outcome…,” said Bosenko.

After hearing the news about her discovery, Keith drove to the hospital.

This is a critical, active, ongoing investigation,” said Bosenko.

Anyone with information about Papini’s abduction is being asked to contact the Shasta County Sheriff’s Department at at (530) 245-6135.

A California woman who went missing in the beginning of November has been found safe after being released by her captor or captors this morning, the Shasta County Sheriff's Office announced today.

Sherri Papini, 34, was reported missing on Nov. 2, 2016, after she went for a run in the afternoon and never came home.

Papini was last seen jogging alone on Sunrise Drive in Redding, California, according to a poster that was distributed in the search effort. The mother of two young children has been described by her family as a "super mom."

"We are very ecstatic to report that Sherri Papini has been located and has been reunited with husband and family on this day of Thanksgiving," Sheriff Tom Bosenko said at a news conference today. "I am happy to say that Sherri is now safe and that she has been treated at an area hospital outside of Shasta County for non-life-threatening injuries."

Bosenko did not specify the nature of her injuries.

Bosenko said Papini was released early this morning by her captor (or captors) on a rural road in Yolo County, about 150 miles from her home. "She was bound with restraints but was able to summon help from a passing motorist," Bosenko said.

The sheriff said that this is still an active investigation and that authorities are "looking for a dark-colored SUV with two Hispanic females armed with a handgun."

“This is a new chapter in this investigation, sensitive information has yet to be disclosed,” Bosenko said.

The sheriff's office added that she has been reunited with her husband, Keith Papini.

OT I have been looking into pizzagate and it is really disturbing. There is actually a YouTube video where the owner of Comet Ping Pong is answering questions that might be interesting for statement analysis. There is no reliable denial. He is smiling and extremely cordial, even though the interviewers are more or less accusing him of running a pedophile ring. There is no anger, outrage, defiance or legal threats. He is probably not even lying in the video, which is all the more disturbing. At one point he is showing some protesters around the pizza place and he says "This is where we turn the lights on". That got me the chills.
