Bergeron shows up in several of Vonnegut's novels.
About cops being immigrants. Well, what do you suppose has been the tradition in the good ol' US of A for a heck of a long time? Every cop in Boston was Irish at one point. Then a mix of Irish and Italian. Then Italian and Polish. Then . . . . That's how immigrants have traditionally entered the American mainstream, by getting such jobs. What I don't understand is the implied association of immigrant with low IQ.
I've met many cops who are anything but stupid, or even average. It's true that having authority and power sometimes makes for an unfortunate outcome for some cops--but most cops seem to me to be fine and dandy. I also wonder what you mean by "cop" in this context. FBI? Homeland Security?
