    Is this "Racist" why do they have to do this, if they do this just imagine the the screwballs that will sign up to be cops.

    POLICE DEPT FULL OF DUMMY'S AND BABBLING MORONS

    Todays News:
    The Chicago Police Department is seriously considering scrapping the police entrance exam, sources tell Fran Spielman.

    Dropping the exam would bolster minority hiring and avert legal battles, according to one source, while others confirm that the exam could be scrapped to open the process to as many people as possible.

    However, the lack of an exam would make Chicago the lone major city without one, and experts contend that the exam is integral to eliminating unqualified applicants.

    The CPD has tried in recent years to boost minority hiring by offering the police exam online and turning to minority clergy to help in the recruitment effort.

    I have two thoughts.

    One: its ludicrous

    Two: In the four or five years i've been lurking/posting i never heard anyone bashing Chicago until Obama was elected POTUS, now it the root of all evil. The agenda is really fvcking obvious.

    So much for the "Finest" when they have to dumb it down to let anyone in.

    I am not sure of the agenda that NBC has by putting out this article... what I read is that is minorities are not passing the police exam so they may just scrap it completely. Am I wrong in this assumption?

    Note to self...do not move to Chicagoland.

    So they want to open up the process yet (from the article):
    This was another link, from Oct, in the article:Should I Stay or Should Furlough Now? | NBC Chicago
    They're still responsible for paying out pensions, etc to the existing forces who are nearing retirement. Now they want no restrictions or vetting process in order to let so-called minorities in, you have to think they must have gotten one kicking stimulus package.:cool:

    It's f-cking obvious that when they do something like this they are going to be bashed, if it wasn't in the news nobody would be talking about it, I bashed Chicago for years for being the only city in the country where DEAD DEMOCRATS climb out of their graves every November and Vote.

    Former Gov. George Ryan- went to jail
    Former Gov. Blagojovich - awaiting trial for trying to sell a Senate seat...
    numerous Chicago politicians- convicted or under investigation.
    Corruption in American Cities: Chicago: From the Great Fire of 1871 to the 21st Century, Corruption Thrives

    The only obvious thing is that Chicago politics are notorious for being less than honest and my point was that adding the Police department to that mix will find its way into the patronage mix.

    --------------------
    A simple search of the archives reveals numerous threads on Chicago and corruption all older than a year ago. Here are four of them that cite Chicago corruption.....Thanks for playing......

    that's not really true there flex ... we had fun hating on Da' Bears.

    Still fun ragging on the Cubbie fans.

    Really ... other than the Bulls & food ... what is Chicago known for?
