    Fair enough. However, Holder is sworn to uphold the law, and that includes the Fourteenth Amendment.

    Every black officer that joins after this will be judged negatively by his peers now. And yes, written tests do matter.
    Where did you get the idea that I supported this decision?

    since written tests do establish one level of essential qualification, ie, the ability to read, to understand and apply procedure, and lacking everything else, the absence of drool on the test form, what's your point? All cops have to fill out paperwork, they all have to fill it out correctly, and they have to know the law to apply the law. and that means they have to be able to pass tests.

    People that are too stupid to pass a simple written test, or too lazy too prepare for the test in advance, are simply not going to be good cops.

    There's more to police work than baton swinging and marksmanship, Tackleberry.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Your post seemed to imply that written tests were not important... excuse me if I mis read your statement as support.

    Standard-issue government written tests reflect nothing but one's ability to memorizea set of answers and promptly forget them two days later.

    I've taken lots of these.

    This actually reflects the declining level of standards in the rest of the country. Education isn't meeting employer or college requirements because of teachers unions, so qualified personnel cannot be found. They have to be imported. Silicon Valley companies like Google and Microsoft have domestic shortages of qualified employees, so they outsource and bring foreign workers to come work in America.

    Physically, America is fat. I'm sorry, but it's true and we all know it.

    People increasingly can't pass basic aptitude OR physical tests to meet qualifications for various jobs. It's deeply concerning.

    And if people can't do that simple task, they're not going to be effective police officers, who have to remember the laws so they can see crime happening in front of them and thus those that can't perform what you've proclaimed is routine task shouldn't be considered as eligible for employment as a police officer.

    The world always needs more janitors, you know.

    No, what is of concern isn't that people fail entrance exams, but that the politicians are determined to lower standards to force the acceptance of groups that don't live up to the ideal.

    Note that the OP didn't say enough people didn't pass the test, is said not enough minorities passed the test.

    That suggests there were enough qualified applicants, except that, illegally, the DOJ is applying a racial test as well.
