The desire to help others. Think about this statement: human inclinations are primarily altruistic. Now, whether you agree with this statement or not, there has been scientific proof that the urge to help others is part of human nature. Regardless of this desire, sometimes humans make mistakes, have lapses in judgement, and some of us humans are just heartless.
911 Mystery Call
On Halloween day, a deceased body was discovered near the interstate. Some may speculate it was an accident, but Patricia Davis had called 911 just one week prior to her body being discovered in a ditch. The sergeant on duty on October 25 was dispatched to her residence after 911 dispatchers received a call from a crying woman.
Last Time Seen Alive
When police arrived on the scene, they heard a scream from inside and then saw a woman peek out of the curtains. Those officers called Sergeant Christopher Gai, who was not on scence, and he determined the woman was in no imminent danger, so he instructed the officers to leave. Unfortuantely, that was the last time she’d be seen alive.
Lapse In Judgement?
Now, a few weeks since the incident, Sheriff Joe Lopinto has commented that if it would have been him at that scene, he would’ve made a different decision. Police aren’t given instructions on how to handle each case or every specific situation. Was this a lapse in judgement on Sergent Gai’s end?
Polygraph vs. EyeDetect
Gai participated in a polygraph exam in connection to this homicide case. He failed the polygraph exam and has since been fired from the department. Some are arguing that firing the Sergeant was too harsh. If the police department wanted to be absolutely positive about the results, they could’ve had the sergeant first take an EyeDetect exam.
EyeDetect is scientifically validated by the same scientists that invented the computerized polygraph. An exam takes just 30 minutes and you have unbiased results in 5 minutes. When used in conjunction with a polygraph, the confidence outcome may reach as high as 98 percent.
