The recent events in Atlanta are yet another example of how feminism and affirmative action are failing society. For those who may have forgotten, an accused rapist named Brian Nichols was brought before a judge in an Atlanta courtroom, guarded by a deputy sheriff. In the courtroom, the accused, a 200 lb former college running back, overpowered his guard, a 5-foot tall female deputy, who was also a grandmother, relieved her of her side arm and killed 4 people, including the grandmother.
Since this has transpired I have heard very little from the media about the advisability of having 100-lb. females guarding 200+ lb. alleged violent offenders. In fact, the media treated this event pretty much the same way they treat every other event by tut-tut expressing outrage that things like this could happen in our society.
Given the physics of this dynamic, it would take a complete moron to miss the obvious, namely that it doesnt make good sense to have females as front-line law enforcement officers. Neither does it make much sense to have female firefighters. I know that if I was trapped in a burning building, my choice of rescuer would be a burly 200+ lb. man, who obviously has the strength to carry my rather large frame to safety. But preferences such as these run counter to the prevailing "wisdom" about womens physical abilities. Consequently the tried and true regulations governing the physical abilities of those applying for hazardous positions, such as police officers and firefighters have been downgraded to accommodate women.
As a result, the quality of our law enforcement and public safety services is suffering hugely, as is evidenced by the recent Atlanta event that ultimately cost five lives. . . . .

I have been married three times. I know how feminism has failed us.
The guard who lost the gun to Nichols was not killed.
When did she die?
The last I heard she was recovering nicely.
Feminazis are gonna eat you alive, look what they did to Larry Summers!
Standards have been lowered in order to accommodate women and people that don't have the intelligence to pass an exam. How many more MISTAH SPEAKA, HOW MANY MORE, if you're from MA you'll get that, in any case, I'm sick of unqualified people getting jobs because of affirmative action, look at the police and fireman, standards are lowered to accommodate minorities. IMO if you're not qualified, get out, move on, find something else to do. If the rest of us aren't qualified we don't get any special treatment, it's sorry pal, buh bye.
The DC chapter gets great protection from the DC police and the majority of them are black. I think Atlanta has just poor leadership and judgement.
I have seen it up close too. I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but we will not live long enough to see it improve. When I retire, my plan is to leave the country, and radical feminism bares much of the blame for this.
Unfortunately this has to happen in order for reactive change to take place. (We are not the best at being proactive) It will certainly take the wind out of the pro-lesbian-anti-anything-male-feminist sail. This sort of education is not cheap.
Women have no place where safety and survival depend upon strength and force. Intelligence is not going to tackle a raging lunatic.

Agree about the intelligence thing, that was in reference to schools lowering their standards in order to accommodate those that can't pass the entrance exam.
