Lie Detector

A judge admonished the Radnor, Pa., police for pretending that a Xerox copy machine was a lie detector. Officers had placed a metal colander on the head of a suspect and attached the colander to the copier with metal wires. In the copy machine was a type-written message which read: "He's lying."

According to UPI, "Each time investigators received answers they did not fancy, they pushed the copy button. Out came the message, "He's lying."

Apparently convinced the machine was accurate, the suspect confessed.
