Obama Administration Pushes Dayton to “Pass” Police Recruits who Fail Exam.

Posted by iusbvision on March 12, 2011

The Obama administration wants passing grade of an F for policer officer exam so more minoritities pass.

The scores are so low for passing now that even the NAACP opposes the lower standards.

Dayton Local ABC News:

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’.

“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. and Civil Service Board declined Dayton’s News Source’s repeat requests for interviews.  The lower standards mean 258 more people passed the test. The city won’t say how many were minorities.

“If you lower the score for any group of people, you’re not getting the best qualified people for the job,” Foward said.

Just how stupid are Columbia University professors???

Posted by iusbvision on March 12, 2011

They are so stupid… and in this case stupid is the best word….that their latest rant against the military is that it is discriminatory against the aged and the physically disabled.

Wow.

We have reported just how stupid the nonsense that comes out of Columbia Journalism Review and to be honest I was virtually certain that stupidity in such a degree could not be surpassed. I now stand corrected.

Columbia Professors against ROTC:

Equally important is the fact that ROTC will remain a discriminatory institution even after DADT has become a relic of history. There are many reasons–from physical disability to age–for which people are disqualified from admission.

Lee Doren from “How The World Works” posted a brilliant rant about academic stupidity and of course, the latest abject stupidity form Michael Moore.

Video of Earth Cracking in Japan

I know most of us are broke, but if you have the means to make charitable donations for Japan I am sure they would very much appreciate the help.

If George W Bush were torturing Bradley Manning like Obama is would the Left rollover the way they do for Obama

Posted by iusbvision on March 12, 2011

A good question from MSNBC talker Dylan Ratigan and from all of the information I have been able to gather Ratigan has this story correct and Manning is being treated this badly.

MSNBC is so often so brutishly anti-journalism and anti-intellectual that just ignoring them seems best, but when they get it right we have no fear of saying so.

Congressman King vs Wash Post’s Eugene Washington on Islamic Radicalization Hearings. King Wins.

Posted by iusbvision on March 12, 2011

I am not going to hold back here. Eugene Robinson is the quintessential example of what is wrong with journalism today. His arguments amount to emotionalism, fear mongering and demagoguery, which he uses to try to hide that fact that he rarely does his homework.

We have talked about the way the far left argues. The first argument is S.I.N. and the last argument is an attempt to paint you as a monster to shut you up. This is all that is in the far left play-book. You can see that Cong. King pummels Robinson with fact after fact while Robinson just sits there and shakes his head. The far left typically ignored most facts that threaten their narrative. You will see this pattern perfectly in this video.

When Joe Lieberman and Snow had similar hearings some years ago why did the left not call Lieberman a McCarthy or a bigot? This is all politics folks and Eugene Robinson once again shows himself to be a naked partisan hit man.
