  • People with high IQ's should not be barred from becoming cops.

    It does not make any sense to prohibit smart people from becoming cops. If someone really wanted to be a cop, they could just intentionally get a bad score on their IQ test. In fact, having smart cops would help them to do their job and to outsmart criminals they are trying to cartch.

    I believe that people with high IQ's should not be barred from becoming cops. Obviously, cops need to be in good health and be physically fit. A high IQ can just be another asset of a good policeman or policewoman. For example, intelligence would be very beneficial for detectives, who might be able to solve more murder cases.

  • Why should they be banned?

    We need smart cops in this world! So why not have cops that are smart enough to catch criminals and do a little detective work for the police? Many cops are smart, but a few are... Well, not necessarily as intelligent. That's why criminals get away: They outsmart the police! With smart cops, the police could catch more criminals!

  • No, people with high IQ's should be allowed to become cops.

    Our cops are amazing people, well, most of them. I think if they are barred from a job because they are so intelligent is discrimination. Not only that, we need more intelligent men/women on our force. Being a cop is a difficult job, and I would feel so much safer knowing we had a smart guy on our side.

Why would this even be asked?
