DOJ: Criminal Background Checks, Citizenship Requirements Barriers To Police-Force Di


#1

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released a comprehensive report Wednesday examining law enforcement hiring, recruitment, and retention policies with the aim of increasing diversity in police departments.

The report–“Advancing Diversity in Law Enforcement”–highlighted barriers to diversity within police departments, such as “the use of criminal background checks” which the researchers found “is likely to disproportionately impact racial minority applicants.”

The report also found that U.S. citizenship requirements “may prevent a considerable number of racial and ethnic minorities – many of whom have valuable foreign language skills – from being hired by law enforcement agencies.”

So let me get this straight. The DOJ wants no background checks because it may reveal that the person is not a citizen or has a criminal record.

Well duh, is there a problem here?

If Hilda gets in look for a nationalized police force! Can see it now the guy who wrote you a ticket for speeding in a school zone is an illegal immigrant and has a record of child molestation.

Wow you think that’s bad. Here’s an even bigger impact. Think of all the mentally unstable people in this country. Well none of them are allowed to work around nuclear weapons. We have to change that so that there isn’t a disproportionately impact racial minority applicants. This has to be a PC world so everyone should have the right to kill a million or so people by pushing a button. (wink)
