Court OKs Barring High IQs For Cops
ABC News, New London, Conn.
A man whose bid to become a police officer was rejected after he scored too high on an intelligence test has lost an appeal in his federal lawsuit against the city.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York upheld a lower court’s decision that the city did not discriminate against Robert Jordan because the same standards were applied to everyone who took the test.
Honest, this is not a story from The Onion. According to the story, they're just afraid that smart people would be bored by police work. So the guy who wanted to be a cop is working in a prison, instead, like that's not boring? Rationale: FAIL.
Much more likely: intelligent people might be more likely to notice the sheer malevolent evil of enforcing "laws" crafted by scum-of-the-earth politicians which threaten, rather than protect, life, liberty or property. Intelligent cops might hesitate to enforce such laws. They might even become Oath-Keepers. Can't have that.
Just noticed that this story is from 2000! Somehow it got to be news on today's Liberty Crier (May 4, 2013). If such policies have been in effect for the last 13 years, that could explain a lot of the police abuse cases recently . . .
