3 Reasons Intelligent, Rational Americans Don’t Trust Police

The OP-NAT Eye |

Despite near-daily summary executions of unarmed people, assaults and malicious arrests by U.S. police, Americans still love their cops.

Gallup poll from this past June found that white Americans are 60 percent confident in police, while non-whites checked in at 48 percent.




But in recent years, public trust in police has slid.

A 2009 poll found that 63 percent of respondents of all races said police had “very high honesty and ethical standards,” but that number dropped to 57 percent the following year.

Many Americans have people employed as cops in their families, and use that fact to rationalize “the good” of the entire profession.

Some are simply too afraid to say anything about obvious violent, thuggish behavior of cops, while others desperately want to hold onto what little Pollyanna Americana is left in their hearts.

The facts speak for themselves as far as why Americans need to be proactive in protecting themselves against the largest and most heavily armed gang in the USA. Here are three of those facts.

Low IQ Academy Applicants Preferred

A good number of white Americans reject affirmative action legislation because they say it unfairly gives less qualified “minorities” jobs they don’t deserve. Police departments, on the other hand, actually prefer and covet the least qualified applicants they can possibly get.

Mr. Robert Jordan of New London, Conn. wanted to become a cop. The first step in that jurisdiction is for applicants to take a Wonderlic test. Many Americans have heard of this exam because NFL prospects must take it as part of the draft process.

Jordan took the test on March 16, 1996 and scored a 33 (out of 50). He was not allowed to move on to the next stage of the application process because he scored too high on the test. The City of New London defended its policy, saying Jordan scored too far above the “normative median” of 21 and would “get bored” with the job and quit. The average NFL player also scores around 20 on the test, according to Bleacher Report.
