A man was rejected from being a police officer after he scored too high on an intelligence test. The theory is that those who scored too high could get bored with police work and leave soon after undergoing costly training. And courts say it's ok.

Only in America could you be turned down from being a cop for being too intelligent. I don’t know what to say to that.

What if that was applied to baseball players or physics professors? How could you possibly lose a job because you’re too smart for it?
Only in America!
