It should come as no surprise that many police officers aren’t the brightest crayons in the box. After all, a smart enough person would eventually begin to question the enforcement of arbitrary and immoral laws that put innocent people in cages for victimless crimes.
However, did you know that there is an actual court ruling on record that allows for the rejection of those who score too high on the police intelligence test? Yes, in 2000, a man’s bid to become a police officer was rejected after he scored too high on an intelligence test. He then 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.
Keep this precedent for low intelligence in mind when watching the video below. You can see how the cop reacts belligerently to being proven wrong on basic math. “You know what? F#ck it! You can argue it in court!” “Before you make that statement f#ck yourself.”
By the way, the kid in this video also fails on many levels. He may be okay at math, but he should have known to never talk to the cops and most assuredly never answer questions or give them anything like, “I drank 2 beers tonight.”
