Is Zorroy as fun to read as ever? I found him so. What obout this evidence that the police departments are lowering their standards? Do you see that as a problem? I certainly do.Zorroy, You're gonna have to modernize your links. That one which you've been touting lately is almost a generation old. For all the good that information does us, the New London cops might all be geniuses now.
I decided a while ago that my time can be better spent than watching the forcible citizen disarmament circle-jerk that this site has become, but you wanted an update.
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’.
Gotta love political correctness, doncha? Just as it's now politically incorrect to refer to someone as "mentally retarded," so we have to call them "progressive," now it's apparently "racist" to demand that cops be smarter than owl shit, and the dumb-as-owl-shit standard is to be mandated by the federal government.
Attorney General Eric Holder needs a Handicapper General working under him, though. Where's Diana Moon Glampers when you need her?
