Polees is reel smart

Clearly the best and brightest are protecting and serving:

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’.

Why does Dayton need black police officers? Do they have a quota for Asian officers too? How about Turkish ones? Jews? And how is it worth hiring officers anyhow when you know before they’re even hired that they’re going to find the job too intellectualy challenging?
