Smart people barred from becoming police officers

Smart people barred from becoming police officers

(4:50) A court in New York ruled in favour of preventing smart people from joining the police force. 49-year-old Robert Jordan was barred from becoming a police officer because he scored to highly in an IQ test - which echoes a policy in Aldous Huxly's dystopian novel 'Brave New World' published in 1932. David Pakman Show, July 2013.

The real reason is mentioned , did you catch it? The guy was 49 years old. But not legal to age discriminate. So they picked iq to not select him.
