Eric Holder on the march again. We just got done posting how he and the DOJ was going after the New York Fire Dept. He will get us killed with this nonsense. Under what authority does he have? Where are the protests?
Now, another story..
DAYTON — “The Dayton Police Department is lowering its testing standards for recruits. It’s a move required by the U.S. Department of Justice The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations 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. DOTSBOLE 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. DOTSBOLE 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’.” H/T carpe Diem

That’s because his Justice Department is trying to force the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) to hire flunkies who got 70 percent wrong on a basic, fire-related multiple-choice, open-book test. The exam was used to screen applicants to the fire academy. More than 90 percent of black and Hispanic test-takers passed, which isn’t enough for liberals addicted to affirmative action…. On Feb. 28, Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, submitted a proposed order for damages for rejected applicants who scored 25 or higher on the 85-question exams. New York’s taxpayers would be forced to pay compensation to the flunkies to make up for years of seniority supposedly lost when the city chose not to hire them. Minority rejects also would receive seniority over firemen who had been working all the while.
The D.O.J. has forced other police departments across the country to lower testing standards, citing once again that not enough black candidates
