Court OKs Barring High IQs for Cops

(ABC)   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.

“This kind of puts an official face on discrimination in America against people of a certain class,” Jordan said today from his Waterford home. “I maintain you have no more control over your basic intelligence than your eye color or your gender or anything else.”  He said he does not plan to take any further legal action.   Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, took the exam in 1996 and scored 33 points, the equivalent of an IQ of 125. But New London police interviewed only candidates who scored 20 to 27, on the theory that those who scored too high could get bored with police work and leave soon after undergoing costly training.

Most Cops Just Above Normal The average score nationally for police officers is 21 to 22, the equivalent of an IQ of 104, or just a little above average.

Jordan alleged his rejection from the police force was discrimination. He sued the city, saying his civil rights were violated because he was denied equal protection under the law.

But the U.S. District Court found that New London had “shown a rational basis for the policy.” In a ruling dated Aug. 23, the 2nd Circuit agreed. The court said the policy might be unwise but was a rational way to reduce job turnover.

Jordan has worked as a prison guard since he took the test.

  • So the next time one of those gun-toting morons pulls you over or harasses you, you now have proof. Cops are idiots.

  • There’s the proof. They want idiots to just follow orders and assault citizens without the capability of reasoning.

    If you’re a cop…f k you. You are beneath me, scumbag.

  • In Dayton Ohio, Holder has forced the police department to lower the exam passing grade to F to all “my people” to make the force.

  • We’ve known for quite a while that the corporate Policy Enforcer entry standards are designed to get good dogs that follow orders, but not bright enough to question them. Usually they look for narcissic or sociopathic personality disorders (hence all the psychological screening and IQ testing) – they know how to hand pick the ones that lack the capacity for higher brain function and complex adult emotions. Common sense, decency, fairness, open-mindedness, curiosity, honor, questioning nature are all weeded out.

    The dubious excuse of “getting bored with Police work” is completely unfounded and a weak lie used by an apathetic and evil organization. Almost 1000 UK officers, including many of senior rank, have criminal records – including assault, theft, planting evidence, unlawful arrest and detention, brutality and on and on – this was mainstream news in the last week for those keeping tabs. They recruit and ruthlessly indoctrinate the most psychologically vulnerable, low IQ, insecure, rule following muppets from the populace, give them a special costume and lots of gadgets and false authority (under maritime law) and send them forth to extort revenue, control, intimidate, dominate, torture, maim, restrain and kill their fellow human beings.

    I bought the same bullshit propaganda when I wore another uniform and was duped into going and strutting around another man’s country with a gun on my hip, a rifle in my hands and a belly full of false patriotism. Absolute evil. Our elite are trying to enforce the world and these muppet flat feet have got to realize they are on the wrong side of history and will be torn limb from limb unless they start protecting the people from the elite. This insanity will only end with the fall of the plutocrats, so lets keep at them. Occupy 2012.

  • Assuming linear scaling, the acceptable IQ range for NY cops is 76-102. And yet:

    “Most Cops Just Above Normal The average score nationally for police officers is 21 to 22, the equivalent of an IQ of 104, or just a little above average.”

    Actually, 81.44 according to my scaling…Most cops well below normal! Almost retarded!

    If 33=125 then 21.5 / 33 = .6515 and .6515 * 125 = 81.44 average cop IQ.

    Looks to me like cops are even more stupid than this article claims.

  • Dummies with guns and a badge. The American public cant get a break. We have one of the worst governments on the planet, and the government seems to be hell bent on destroying the country.

  • POLICE BRUTALITY: Texas Cops Kill 8th Grader***********Low IQ cops @ work.

  • I’m in a tiny county that has some seriously immature and irresponsible cops. Low IQ or not ….. these people are the dregs of society. There are some real genetic and social growth problems going on here.

    But hey, we get what we deserve. Around here there is almost no business, farming is way down, manufacturing is busted. In this southern county, they have embraced big brother and they have 6+ correctional facilities. Totally darkside.

  • I took an IQ test one week after detoxing from a year long drug and alcohol binge and scored a 114. If the average cops scores a 104 I cannot imagine what the lower half of cops score.

    Ridiculous.
