Too Smart? Police Do Not Want You



If you are too smart then do not apply for a position in law enforcement. Robert Jordan, who applied for a law enforcement position but was turned down for being too smart with an I.Q. of 125. The average I.Q. of the general population is 100 with the average law enforcement I.Q. being 104. Robert Jordan sued the city of New London, CT but has lost his appeal in court.

Wouldn't it be common sense to want to hire the brightest and most intelligent people for law enforcement jobs? Too bad mediocrity is the general expectation.
