I am pro-cop and a veteran, that is why this high IQ cop ban concerns me. Being a police officer is not any easy job. The problem is when police departments cover up for the bad apples. To all the honest police officer of the world, thank you for your service.

Read rule 8 for truth suppression. I welcome censoring old news tag. Let the conversation on this important topic begin. Is voat going to have a reddit style old news rule soon? I will fight it if they try. The mainstream media is not going to control the narrative on Voat.

Thank you for your service. I agree with your view on tagging posts. We all remember how the rushing river of censorship only began as a trickle on that other site. First come the tags which attempt to sway readers, then comes the rules that result in removals (regardless of how users may feel). Then comes the final stage - even more rules, which give mods complete control of the narrative, allowing them to banish content based on nothing more than their own biases and opinions. Never again.

They are less likely to use their own moral reasoning. Also to be a cop you need to be missing last few stages of kohlberg's moral reasoning hierarchy. A high IQ person is more likely to be mentally developed and thus will have an unwillingness to do harm to other people if the rationality isn't 100% solid. You can't be a cop and be morally developed and low IQ is a corrolated selector.

A fully developed person would quit a job before causeing undue harm even once and have a properly broad definition for undue harm that includes both guidelines and abstract reasoning.

As I would agree it's relevant, there's a reason this subverse is called /v/news and not /v/olds. An article that's three-years old may have been news once, but now it's just political history.

Is there any new information on it? Again, it's 3 years old, we all know about it, so it's not really news

It's old news but relevant. This has nothing to do with a person with higher IQ getting bored. It has to do with a person of higher IQ questioning authority and being harder to control. The same rules apply in the military and have been for years but doesn't really get talked about because it's not a public position. When you take the military entrance exams (ASVAB for enlisted), if you score too high, they will not let you, (or try as hard as they can) have a combat specialty job (or grunt jobs in recruiter language). They will place you in a higher capacity MOS and coerce you with telling you it is a bigger paycheck, or give you a start with a higher rank, or signing bonus, etc. The more "elite" MOS positions typically have a significantly smaller command structure (and position availability), so it is easier to over see and control those people while benefiting from their higher intelligence. Not knocking grunt positions, they are to me, just as important if not more so, than the brains in the back. They are the ones putting their lives in danger so that the brains can operate and perform their duties. But, filling the ranks Police or Military, without a good mix of IQ levels, is not the best idea. This is where you get the trigger happy, over aggressive, mindless, order followers. The pack needs a mix of both brains and brawn to run smoothly and retain the humanity it needs to make the best decisions for the situation at hand, even if that decision means to go against the orders given. Of course it is exactly that, which these standards are put in place to prevent.

theres a vast difference between police work and the military; one is a civilian job(for now anyway) the other is very obviously not. in the latter position, its seems like a waste to let a highly intelligent person get killed when grunt work should be for morons- easier to control is a separate issue

now for civilian work its different, you may be killed instead of most likely, and that extra intelligence could be used to talk someone down instead of swiss cheesing them

...those who scored too high could get bored with police work...

Makes sense to me. They should probably require an IQ of 90 or lower for flipping burgers and working at the DMV and things like that, with exceptions for those with criminal convictions, single moms, etc. With one part-time job I had in college, I quit after one day because my retarded coworkers were so unbearable.

What about detectives though? If I were the victim of a crime I would prefer to have a smart detective on the case rather than a dumb one.

Even though iq isnt the end all be all of success it undoubtly plays a major role.

The problem with cultural marxism is that it assumes anyone can manage to relate variables like engineers can.

This has been known for ages but I'm glad the article was published to remind people as well as verify it for any doubters. The official cover story of it to save training costs is horse shit though. It's to develop a large army of meathead thugs who do as they're told and don't ask questions.

There's a high turnover rate for law enforcement in the first couple of years of their career. Some men and women just see it as a government job that's hard to get fired from and offers great benefits and wrestling with a crack head who just shit themselves sours their opinions. Departments want men and women who will spend the rest of their working lives in the force. \

Most Cops Just Above Normal The average score nationally for police officers is 21 to 22, the equivalent of an IQ of 104,

Hurr cops are stupid guys - let's go smoke weed and play Xbox!
