US police do not hire intelligent people: Ex-CIA contractor

Tue Jun 9, 2015 7:53AM

US police departments “require people that are incapable of logical compassionate thinking,” Kelley said.

The United States police departments do not employ relatively intelligent people so that they cannot act compassionately and logically when encountering criminals, says former CIA contractor Steven Kelley.

“There is a policy here in the United States that people of a relatively high IQ are not allowed to become police officers,” Kelley told Press TV on Tuesday.

“There is actually a test given to applicants and if they score too high they are not eligible to join law enforcement,” he said, adding “They do require people that are incapable of logical compassionate thinking.”

Kelley made the remarks when asked about a video, which was recently released showing a police officer handcuffing and physically holding down a black teenage girl at a pool party in Texas.

The video shows a white police officer in McKinney shouting and ordering some black teens to lie on the ground while telling others to disperse in a neighborhood pool on Friday.

Kelley said such incidents seem “to be a recurring issue that is certainly becoming a major problem here in the United States with the law enforcement seemingly choosing to persecute the minorities, the black people.”

“This is not just a geographical issue with the south because obviously this is happening in almost every state here in the United States,” he noted.

He went on to say that “within the current administration, (there is) the desire to try to spread as much dissent and trouble amongst the racists.”

“The militarization of the police here in the United States is also a big problem but ultimately I think what this really illustrates is the fact that this country has become the fascist.”

“The Obama administration is trying very hard to use this incidence to show that they need to federalize the police force which obviously would be incredibly bad,” he said.

In another incident, a video emerged showing disturbing images of US police officers beating a mentally-ill man with batons in Salinas, California.

The video shows Salinas police firing a Taser at the victim, repeatedly striking him with batons before handcuffing him on Friday.

For this obedience is the law of our being. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
