>> Chicago: Police may scrap entrance exam so it can hire more minorities. Or maybe just more thugs in uniform?
Posted January 8, 2010on:
This is just too stupid to be true, but it is. Yes indeedy. Chicago is planning to eliminate the police entrance exam so that more minorities who can not pass the exam can be hired. Will this be coming to a city near you someday soon? It is possible if the Obama and his Chicago Good Old Boys Club continue to run the country.
The Chicago Police Department is seriously considering scrapping the police entrance exam to bolster minority hiring, save millions on test preparation and avert costly legal battles that have dogged the exam process for decades, City Hall sources said Tuesday.
If the process is opened to everyone who applies and meets the minimum education and residency requirements, Chicago would be virtually alone among major cities. Most cities have police entrance exams — and for good reason, experts say.
Of course this isn’t much different than what happened in New Jersey firefighters case where the test scores were thrown out because not enough minorities passed the test. In this case it went all the way to the supreme Court on a Reverse Discrimination change and the Court ruled against the city and for the White firefighters.

We can only be happy that our communist leaning Attorney general Eric Holder is not in any way able to sway the Supreme Court or this case would have ended otherwise. BB
