City Lowers Police Testing Standards Because Not Enough Blacks Passed...More affirmitive action, then they will sue if they don't get promotions. More from the Unions and entitlement crowd.

Under pressure from Obama administration..well affirmitive action organizers don't change their spots..

Springfield Mayor Frank Edwards is going straight to the top.

Edwards has written President Barack Obama seeking the balance of the bill the city ran up for police when the then-candidate visited in 2008 to announce his running mate.

The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports that the city submitted a bill for $68,139. It's still owed $55,457.

The interim mayor says there appears to be confusion about whether the Secret Service or the White House owes the money.

Edwards wrote that "sometimes only the executive himself can cut through such inter-departmental differences of opinion."

He says he's not trying to embarrass anyone, but times are tight.

Obama visited the Old State Capitol in August 2008 to announce Joe Biden as his running mate.

DAYTON — The city’s Civil Service Board and the U.S. Department of Justice have agreed on a lower passing score for the police recruit exam after it was rejected because not enough blacks passed the exam.

The city lowered both written exams a combined 15 points that resulted in 258 more people passing the exam, according to a statement released Thursday by Civil Service officials. The agreement allows the city to immediately resume its plans to hire police and firefighters.

CAN'T MAKE IT IN THE REAL WORLD.........YOU HAVE TO BE SUBSIDIZED JUST LIKE THE UNIONS.

do you remember the White and 1 Hispanic firemen who took their case to the U.S. Supreme Court and won? The firemen are on the east coast. Their city thought it necessary to dumb down the requirements too as blacks couldn't pass the exam. Elana Kagan ruled against the firemen, however, the Supreme Court overturned her ruling, shortly after she was sworn in.

Cop hater, you're a big mouth that doesn't the facts, what happens in Dayton happens in Dayton, not where I'm a cop. Cities have to hire a quota of minorities, not just blacks to qualify for federal funds. First you have to have 110 hrs college and able to pass the civil service exams, in some cities like mine they take separate exams , don't compete with each other and take the brightest of minorities and they don't compare scores and they have some very bright recruits that fill the requirements for federal funds. They don't lower test score requirements, well maybe in Dayton what are their requirements? Eight grade education

More cut and paste from Bla Blimbo, he posted the same crap on several different post, this one and another Rasmussen (FOX) presidential poll, 2 out of three times, not even remotely connected to the subject.
