High IQ individuals can be barred from being Police

From ABC News:

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. . . .

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. . . .

It is not a matter of quickly becoming bored with LE work. It is all about blind obedience to one's superiors, and following orders without question. Highly intelligent individuals are more likely to question the legality of their orders, and to think about their actions and how said actions affect others.
