Via Dayton's News:
DAYTON -- The Dayton Police Department is lowering its testing standards for recruits.The first question I have is, 'Why is the DOJ involved in a local matter at all?' Then again, doesn't this intrusiveness only serve to reinforce the claims of both J. Christian Adams and Christopher Coates? The two attorneys (Adams resigned to testify against the DOJ), testified under oath that there was a policy inside the DOJ that said voting rights cases that involved black defendants were not to be pursued.
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’.
After all, blacks are Holder's 'people.' Why not lead them down the path of least resistance?
The City of Dayton should not cave to this intimidation and should fight the DOJ in the public arena. If Arizona garnered the majority of public support in its battle with the Feds, imagine how much support a city in Ohio would get.
