Whooaa there pardner! Cops get excellent pensions. They make a gooood living. They have the ability to retire at 50, or if "injured" retire immediately, no matter what age, then go work for another agency and double dip - some even triple dip. Their insurance is far superior to yours. If they get killed while on duty, their kids get to go to college for FREE! And, if they get stopped speeding, they just leave their badge on the seat next to them and when the traffic cop walks up and sees it, they get a free pass (except when the traffic cop is a CHP). So, uh, what was your question?

Re: Do cops KNOW they have lower IQ's than most other people..
I'm an ex-police officer. I have an IQ of 145, and when I joined, police had to have five GCEs (GCSEs) grade C or above, and the entry tests were incredibly difficult and exacting, both physically and mentally.

If you believe all cops are morons, then that's up to you... but they're not.

Maybe you just like to think of them that way ;-)
 Quoting: Mainframe 1077379


I'm an ex emperor of the world and I say you are full of shit.
Even if it were true at 145 IQ (depending on the tests) you wouldn't be siding with the cops you KNOW beat the peasants.

No highly intelligent, logical and rational person can stand by as their equally intelligent peers beat the helpless, rob the poor to keep the spoils, abuse the prostitutes for their own pleasure. These acts are common place these days, even if they aren't reported by the media.

This is horseshit you can't become a cop in the US without a degree or military experience in the US. Even with military experience it's still hard to become a cop w/o a degree.

I suspect that this is a case of "Ignorance being bliss". In other words, they're so stupid they don't realize just how friggin' dumb they are!

Of course they're also nasty, suspicious, and paranoid on top of having pathetic IQ's. Most "pro's" I've known over the years swear that most cops also have small penises. Jeez, what a life? Hopefully their stupidity protects them from knowing how bad off they truly are!

Re: Do cops KNOW they have lower IQ's than most other people..
I have always wondered if they are aware that they are dumber than the general population surrounding them in their communities.

It is common knowledge that forces do not select those with average to high intelligence so they are less inclined to question authority, or as the police tell you, they only select lower IQ individuals so that they will not get bored and leave the force and waste training resources.

Regardless, no one is denying that lower IQ's are what the forces are generally filled with, but do those cops know they are cops BECAUSE they are not too bright?

I attribute most of the cops-gone-bad type videos you see online to this fact, that they are truly stupid people who think they are smart.

I assume it is the same for the military.
 Quoting: Kiljaeden the Banned


First and foremost I think your touching way off basis, but in the right location. I agree that I see most cops with a lower IQ standard, but their IQ level isn't the primary problem. The main issue at hand is personality of each individual cop. Those in charge need to test thoroughly for personality traits. We have to than assume maybe they already have, and possibly the situation is as you say. Lastly what is your IQ, since you're so quick to point a finger towards intelligent, when your argument is well hardly an argument?

People can disagree with the OP all they want....It it only proves the OP's point....


It is a fact that police agencies do not hire intelligent entry level cops, because it is a proven fact that higher intellegence people will see the stupid shit quick, and quit, and it is expensive to replace a new hire....so quality control is done from the hirng phase....if it is realized that the candidates intelligence would prevent him/her from believing the lies spoken as truths, over time they are realized as a liability to the "gang"

The people on this thread who disagree are obviously in the perfect"candidate" intelligence zone....old farts who still believe the past lies, or they are in close relationships with cops, and the reason they are able to be in close relationships with these cops, is because they are as stupid as thse cops.....

Duh!

Re: Do cops KNOW they have lower IQ's than most other people..
I had a recent encounter with a cop. It was ridiculous. I was going to my mother-in-law's house, and I realized I forgot something, so I turned around in someone's driveway. As I was sitting at the edge of the driveway waiting for traffic to clear, a cop turned his lights on, informing me to turn the car off. I couldn't imagine what I had done wrong. He asked me why I was in the driveway. I explained I was turning around. He then asked me why I had not proceeded to turn onto the road "yet". I was shocked at the stupidity. I said "Ummm...because there was traffic on the road....????" He said that I waited too long. I was flabbergasted. It had been 60 seconds at the most....not that it would matter. Since when was turning in a drivway, or waiting for traffic to clear a crime? He proceeded to ask me where I was going, and try to fish for information. I saw him scanning everything in my car, just looking for something to get me introuble for. The only way I got rid of him was to tell him I was going back to my house, and telling him where it was. Talk about abuse of authority!

yes, and they are very pissed off!!! Most cops are real a-holes. They have little to no care it seems for justice. They are more interested in handing out tickets than serving the community. It's no wonder most of the populace can't stand them.

I'm not sure this is generally true. They may want ex military but the degree requirement is certainly not true in most places.

At any rate a degree in "criminal justice" isn't exactly difficult to get.

No one has ever seen a perfect circle, nor a perfectly straight line, yet everyone knows what a circle and a straight line are.
Perceived circles or lines are not exactly circular or straight, and true circles and lines could never be detected since by definition they are sets of infinitely small points.

Sure, there are those cops that are problems, even criminal, but not all. There are bad seeds in every profession that exists. Painting all cops as this or that is in poor taste. IMHO.

According to Moores law computers get intelligent exponentially.

Today our computers are as bright as flies.
In 2015 they will be as bright as dogs.
In 2025 they will be more intelligent than avg. Joe sitting in front of it.

I expect cops being replaced by robots between 2015 - 2025.
