“He’s having an asthma attack! He’s going to die if we don’t get him to the hospital!” said driver Leah Hryniewicki.
Although the cop did have the intentions of helping, having called an ambulance, he wasn’t fortunate enough to be blessed with the intelligence to handle the situation properly and a man died for it.
Casey can be seen kneeling on the pavement.
“Help please,” Casey said, pleading for his life.
“Can’t we just go? I would have made it there by now!” the driver said to the officer.
But the officer, being a typical low-IQ authoritarian statist, would still not let them go. Even though the hospital was just two miles away.
The officer called for an ambulance, which took nearly 6 minutes to arrive.
The officer himself then refused to administer medical aid as Casey laid dying on the ground, stating that he would have to wait for the ambulance, which would have “oxygen” for him.
Had it not been for the cop, they would have been at the hospital already.
The cop continued detaining them by force, as Casey’s life was slipping through the cracks.
The ambulance finally arrived, and another 2 and 1/2 minutes passed for medical personnel to strap Casey in the ambulance. The cop finally allowed them to leave.
Unfortunately, it was too late. Casey was pronounced dead at the hospital, thanks to the callous and mindless actions of police.
A man whose bid to become a police officer was rejected after he scored too high on an intelligence test has lost an appeal in his federal lawsuit against the city.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York upheld a lower court’s decision that the city did not discriminate against Robert Jordan because the same standards were applied to everyone who took the test.
“This kind of puts an official face on discrimination in America against people of a certain class,” Jordan said today from his Waterford home. “I maintain you have no more control over your basic intelligence than your eye color or your gender or anything else.”
He said he does not plan to take any further legal action.
Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, took the exam in 1996 and scored 33 points, the equivalent of an IQ of 125. But New London police interviewed only candidates who scored 20 to 27, on the theory that those who scored too high could get bored with police work and leave soon after undergoing costly training.
Most Cops Just Above Normal The average score nationally for police officers is 21 to 22, the equivalent of an IQ of 104, or just a little above average.
Jordan alleged his rejection from the police force was discrimination. He sued the city, saying his civil rights were violated because he was denied equal protection under the law.
But the U.S. District Court found that New London had “shown a rational basis for the policy.” In a ruling dated Aug. 23, the 2nd Circuit agreed. The court said the policy might be unwise but was a rational way to reduce job turnover.
