Councilwoman wants police department to hire black police officers who can’t read well enough to do their job

A city councilwoman in Oakland, California, wants the police to lower their standards on their written test so more blacks can become police officers. The exam measures reading comprehension and other things that are necessary for the police to properly to their job.

You know what? I’m sick of fighting against this kind of nonsense. And I don’t live in that city anyway. So let them adopt her proposal. Let’s see what happens when a city hires police officers who don’t know how to read at the level that their job requires. It would make a great experiment.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

An Oakland City Council member who wants the Police Department to hire more African American officers has focused her attention on the written exam for new applicants — which is the point where many candidates get eliminated.

Councilwoman Desley Brooks suggested the department could consider lowering the passing score on the written test or getting rid of the exam altogether.

The exam… measures reading comprehension, and knowledge of certain vocabulary words — such as “corroborate.”

… the written exam is a critical indicator of whether an officer can fill out police reports, gather testimony from witnesses and comprehend the laws he or she has to enforce.

    And if we don’t hire them they will scream RACIAL DISCRIMINATION, even IF 100% of those applying are dumber than my pet rock.
    Do you know where racism starts?????? IN THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE CALLING OTHERS RACISTS.
    It seems to be their ways of stirring trouble…therefore putting it politically correct …….. racism is BORN.

    Shouldn’t someone ask “Why can’t they find Negroes who can read and write sufficiently to pass a Police Dept. Entrance Exam?” Perhaps the statistical evidence about IQ rankings in America by race is validated by this woman (who apparently is a moron), and the absence of Negroes who can pass the exam.
