I agree. This is a piss poor excuse from the officials in NY City, to be honest.

This is really the stupidest thing I've ever seen.
Every single metropolitan area, if it's larger that is, when they post job hirings for the police department ...They are inundated with candidates.
It's easy for them to be picky. That's why it upsets me when they hire so many bad cops. New York has way over 8 million residents. That's just the City proper, and not counting all the surrounding areas.
You mean to tell me that every single eligible minority candidate has been arrested? LOL

Well ATS, this seems like quite the conundrum. Apparently The NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton says that there are not enough African American Candidates for NYPD because so many of them have done time in jail.
AS I remember the years of NYPD "Stop and Frisk" having entrapped so many African American Young People in the labyrinth of The New York Criminal Justice System due to the disproportionate "Stopping and Frisking" of African Americans. The Federal Courts put an end to this practice.
to put this in perspective we need to know how many black candidates applied and how many were cut solely for background issues.

lower the standards....
Why is it we have to constantly use the lowest common denominator instead of expecting more out of ourselves?
