The Corpus Christi, Tex. Police Department has found itself on the business end of a civil rights lawsuit after the Justice Department concluded that a physical ability test used when considering job applications discriminates against women.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Sad part is, one day one of these “affirmative action” candidates is going to get killed because she couldn’t perform her job. And in the process she is going to get her partner killed also.

Lawyers sue the PD and the City for wrongful death.

Basketball discriminates against short people.
Track and Field discriminates against slow people.
Airlines don’t hire blind pilots.
Bomb squads don’t hire those with hand tremors.

Math requires a correct answer.

Men must run 2000 yards in four minutes.Women should be able to get by with a 10 minute stroll of 200 yards.
They have to be able to shoot a dog or a disabled vet without having the gun recoil into their faces. It’s just good sense.
Before I retired from the Air Force at the age of 44, I had to run 1.5 miles faster than an 18 year old girl to meet standards.
Would someone please explain this to me?
