So get this!
A man in Connecticut had a simple dream — to become a cop. But unfortunately for him, he's too smart! Sorry buddy, you're just too—wait, what!?! Seriously?? Really??
According to Robert Jordan, he was rejected from the badge because he tested too high on his intelligence test. …huh?
He sued for discrimination, but he lost after the court ruled "the same standards were applied to him as everyone else."
This kind of puts an official face on discrimination in America against people of a certain class. I maintain you have no more control over your basic intelligence than your eye color or your gender or anything else.
But according to the police, those with too high an IQ could easily become bored after pricey training and leave.
Sooo basically, if you're living in New London for sure (and wherever else this is practiced), don't plan on talking advanced quantum physics with the next cop who pulls you over…
