Problem is that the polygraphs arent reliable according to the international psychologists today. I thought the polygrph was opnly something the US used and some African nations.

Medical / chemical screening is a better option for finding drug and alchohol subtances.

The only way to get policeofficers from stealing / planting stuff is better screening when employing and better training in civil rights along with good internal affaris investigators that doenst fear investigating crooked cops.

Its same problem allover the World today it seems. Good Putin does somethign about it.

I have faith in Putin to bring it under controll. In Russia it is nos as bad as in South Africa. I drove 14.000 km trough Russia,was stopped sometimes and met the most decent friendly cops from the world. I agree comepletely with polographic tests.
