    I wouldn't either.....but passing someone in testing because of their gender or color of their skin is asinine!

    It's all in Bruce's mind. Poor bastard, all mixed up like that. He was a great athlete, pretty good as an actor on CHIPs....and now a real disappointment to us all.

    When you own the world, then you can tell me or anyone else to STFU.

At least you know they can handle the physical side.
    The reason that the test to get into the academy (any academy of this type actually) is easier than the one graduating is because during their training the people are essentially trained for more endurance. Also knowledge of how to do something in a better way can greatly improve your ability to do the job. So having the harder, graduate test, done in order to get into the academy would leave out those that are perfectly qualified to do the job so long as they are taught and trained. Which means you have less of a pool of firefighters to pull from than with the entry test being weaker.

    umm no they don't. read the contract you sign when you join the military. you don't have standing to sue as you knowingly and willingly put yourself into danger.
    because that case was already settled months ago and so therefore it is irrelevant. evidently it isn't to strong as a court of law already decided that it wasn't.

    of course this has nothing to do with the situation at hand. which is the fact that the city is liable if this women causes injury to someone and they knowingly allowed her into a situation.

    Love the anecdotal stuff....like less competent white men were never hired over more highly qualified blacks or women due to personal or organizational bias?

    Tell you what, if the problem is people being irresponsible by not being able to open jars I will be cool. As it is, its people having kids out of wedlock/relationship, sitting on the public dole, not raising their own kids, etc. Im more concerned about that.
