Department Of In-Justice Rules Require Ohio Police Dept. To Lower Standards In Order To Hire Blacks

DAYTON -- 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’.

Speechless is a good word, but where have we gone so wrong as to allow something like this to happen. Being forced to hire incompetent cops, while at the same time telling us that they're so special as to have more rights than the rest of the citizenry. 

Thanks, I think, to I Hate The Media for the link.
