Why cops are usually idiots

July 3, 2011

The answer is in a NY Times archived article from way back in 1999:

A Federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a man who was barred from the New London police force because he scored too high on an intelligence test.

Nice! We wouldn’t want a smart cop. Only ignorant dipshits need apply, please.

The judge referred to claimed the ruling didn’t violate equal protection under the law because the “No bookreadin’ types” rule applies to any applicants. So as long as any intelligent people are denied an interview for a job as a police officer in New London, CT, that’s “not discrimination.”


Connecticut is our last line of defense against the alien invaders

July 7, 2010

A Connecticut man has been denied a firearm. It wasn’t because he looked like this:

And it also wasn’t because he “mentioned to the seller what he would be using the weapon for: warding off an alien invasion that occurs once every 36,000 years.” It was because he happened to be a convicted felon.

So basically anyone who’s not a convicted felon can buy a gun to ward off an alien invasion they think will happen soon according to some kind of cosmic schedule. Hasn’t Bill Pullman taught us that we need to deploy a computer virus to the mothership in order to have any real damaging effect on our possible¬†extraterrestrial¬†overlords?
