    Being that the party in regards to this case is was done so based on his intelligence, given that intelligent people as a group have not overcome any significant adversities in light of discrimination or civil liberties, the Equal Protection Clause must apply using the rational basis test. The rational basis test states that a law or policy can be established as long as it has a legitimate state purpose; the right for an intelligent person to be a policy officer is therefore irrelevant to the law.

    Thus, the question remains, does the law/policy serves a rational state purpose. If the state can effectively show that it does, then the law/policy is constitutional.
