    Dayton Police Department Ordered to Lower Standards to Hire More Blacks

    Dayton Police Department Ordered to Lower Standards to Hire More BlacksDAYTON -- The Dayton Police Department is lowering its testing standards for recruits.

    It's a move required by the U.S. Department of Justice after it says not enough African-Americans passed the exam.

    Dayton is in desperate need of officers to replace dozens of retirees. The hiring process was postponed for months because the D.O.J. rejected the original scores provided by the Dayton Civil Service Board, which administers the test.

    Under the previous requirements, candidates had to get a 66% on part one of the exam and a 72% on part two.

    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.

    ....


    The D.O.J. has forced other police departments across the country to lower testing standards, citing once again that not enough black candidates were passing.
    Yet more evidence that this administration's Eric Holder is a bigot.

    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.

    Tests have more than one purpose. Another purpose other than establishing qualification is to get the number of potential hires down to a manageable number for selection.

    Tests should be an equalizer and color/creed has no bearing if you're going to wear the uniform of a civil servant.

    Amazing how society tells you that a person's skin color doesn't matter and even go as far to quote Martin Luther King jr. that a person should be judged by the content of their character not by the color of their skin but yet a lot of these people support racist policies in the form of race quotas.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    They shouldn't lower standards. I completely agree. That's counterproductive.

    But maybe they should raise education standards in predominantly black neighborhoods so they wouldn't have any reason to lower other standards.

    I saw a video of a five foot nothing lady cop trying to arrest a monster who was like six and half feet tall and close to three hundred pounds. She nearly died for the sake of good feelings.

    Awesome.

    How?

    It ain't the schools. It's the lack of mom and dad giving a damn. Never mind, I forgot, there is no dad.

    I find it hard to believe that the large numbers of drop outs and below grade level learning is due to parents not giving a rats ass. Most likely is states being forced to keep lousy teachers instead of canning them and replacing them with better teachers.

    I disagree. There was no option in my house. My dad woulda kicked my ass.

    He used to tell us, "You'll have good teachers and bad ones. It's up to you to learn how to manage both because that's what life basically is."

    It's both. Schools in low-income, minority neighborhoods suck. Many parents in low-income minority neighborhoods don't fight to change them.
