    It's the same issue I just stated then, but with the addition of affirmative action, which I am also against.

    Re: Dayton Police Department Ordered to Lower Standards to Hire More Blacks

    Anyone that thinks lowering standards is good has no common sense. There are qualified people there BUUUUUUT they have to lower test scores for blacks. Thats insulting to blacks. Just not to the ones that arent intelligent enough to understand its insulting. Its like saying here is your badge you dumbass. Congrats

    Maybe if one of them was there to help, this lady in a policeman's uniform would have not nearly died.

    Evidently the lesson here escapes you.

    The D.O.J. approved new scoring policy only requires potential police officers to get a 58% and a 63%. That's the equivalent of an ‘F’ and a ‘D’.

    “It becomes a safety issue for the people of our community,” said Dayton Fraternal Order of Police President, Randy Beane. “It becomes a safety issue to have an incompetent officer next to you in a life and death situation."

    “The NAACP does not support individuals failing a test and then having the opportunity to be gainfully employed,” agreed Dayton NAACP President Derrick Foward.
    I think this part of the OP pretty much says it all. Holder lowered the standards, and the NAACP thinks that is a bad idea.

    The purpose of testing is to identify those qualified to do the job. It should not be set aside when not enough people of Eric Holder's race are shown to be qualified.

    Here's what should be done if some feel minorities are insufficiently represented on their police forces: They should demand to know why the teachers unions are failing to educate their children so they can pass those tests and get those jobs, and what teachers are going to be fired to improve the quality of education for their children.

    So,

    Do you agree with Holders suggestion that testing standards need to be lowered to raise the amount of minority candidates getting a position in the police force or do you disagree Hazl?

    I'm not understanding why the DoJ is getting involved in local State law enforcement scores and using anti-discrimination law to do it? Do they not have enough to do in Washington? I don't know if this is Holder or not but it's his department and can't the state tell Washington to **** off in this case? Granted, the fed could take the city to court over discrimination but I think the existing scores which are still an equivilent "D" and "F" minimum score is bad enough. The NAACP has it exactly right as does the Chief... the last thing you want are MORE incompetent officers with guns making life and death decisions - but hey, at least there's the required % of black represented incompetence.

    Such stupidity.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Or just 'so what' if he's a racist. It's his god-given right to hate black people? Is that what you mean by 'so'?

    Strawman -- revealing your own bigotry and racist feelings toward the AG of the United States because of the color of his skin. Shameful.

    True Story, The Good Reverend re-upped with the USAF after he scored in the 98% percentile of the NYPD test and told that because he was not black or a woman, who only needed to score a 60% that he could not become NYPD.

    that dooshbag racist dinkins helped me make the best choice of my life.
