Re: Would Spock make a good cop in real life?
He'd fail as a street cop. He sees everything in logical, unemotional terms, and would not be proficient at handling drunks, solving domestic disputes, minor traffic offenses that could be resolved with a warning, or dozens of other things cops have to do. He's not always good at thinking on his feet, as he was unable to comprehend the behavior of the natives in The Galileo 7, and tried to analyze the situation.
