DOJ Study: Hire Dumb, Weak, Non-American Police Officers

A new report from the DOJ and Equal Opportunity Commission suggests police agencies could diversify by hiring non-US citizens, loosening up on background checks, and making the testing process to become a police officer a whole lot easier.

The Department of Justice and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released a report earlier this week about the impact of background checks police officer diversity. The report is meant to increase diversity in police departments across the United States.

Researchers found that things like criminal background checks can cause a disproportional impact on the hiring of racial minority applicants. The report also states that criminal background checks can impact minorities too because they are more likely to have had contact with police due to the communities that they live in.

Researchers also found that U.S. citizenship “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.”

The report states “Allowing work-authorized non-U.S. citizens to work in state and local law enforcement, particularly in jurisdictions with large immigrant populations, can enable agencies to more closely represent the diversity of their community,”.

To be completely honest, this is the biggest load of politically correct garbage that I have ever seen. Here’s the Cliff notes version of what the report suggests:

  • Hire people who aren’t U.S. citizens to be American police officers.

“Allowing work-authorized non-U.S. citizens to work in state and local law enforcement, particularly in jurisdictions with large immigrant populations, can enable agencies to more closely represent the diversity of their community,”

  • Hire weak people to be police officers.

“If these tests are administered in a manner that overemphasizes physical strength, fail to account for improvements that will result from training, or fail to account for inherent physiological differences between men and women, they may not be selecting for what is actually necessary on the job or is similarly required for the effective absorption of necessary law enforcement training, and consequently may screen out otherwise qualified women.”

  • Hire dumb, inarticulate people to be police officers. And let’s not actually pay attention to people’s “background.”

“Agencies frequently rely on written tests, oral interviews, physical tests, background checks, and other processes to screen applicants. These processes may violate the law if they disproportionately screen out applicants from protected classes and are not job-related and consistent with business necessity.”

Policing isn’t a business. Policing is a low-paying and extremely stressful life choice that police officer commit to in order to make their communities a better place. The men and women who proudly serve as police officers worked very hard to become police officers. At a time when police scrutiny is at an all time high, why would you want to lower the bar for non-American, dumb, weak people to be faced with what we all see on the news? You do realize that the weaker a person is, physically and mentally, the higher chance there will be of them shooting someone, correct?

Diversity is great for any profession, especially policing, but lowering the bar for certain groups or even just lowering the bar in general for everyone will only make policing worse, not better.

    I feel this is a little, well, stupid. The non-citizen idea I can get behind but lowering requirements and less background checks is a stupid stupid idea. We need good officers who can do the right thing, not stupid criminals who don’t care. Maybe if there was like “You can be a cop 10 years after any charge” I’d get behind it but otherwise.

    It is already happening. Police Departments have been lowering requirement and easing up on background check discoveries for some time now.

    “The report also states that criminal background checks can impact minorities too because they are more likely to have had contact with police due to the communities that they live in.”

    Yet somehow this doesn’t have any bearing on the frequency with which cops shoot them?

    Right, we all seen how well this really stupid idea worked out for the Miami (Florida) Police Department back in the 1980s!

    Scroll down to the end of the “report” and check out the credits. The usual anti-white bullshit from the usual suspects.

    This is ridiculous. It would be so much easier to just say, “these are the qualifications– period. The demographics in the universe of those qualified look like this, and we would expect that the police force would have a similar demographic makeup. They can explain why the demographics in this universe don’t match the demographics of the country as a whole– just as easily as they can explain, for example, why the NBA doesn’t match US demographics as a whole.

    Sounds like an idea vomited forth from a 3rd world country. Give a criminal a badge and a gun as well as authority and what could go wrong? If my Dad (who was a cop) were still alive, he’d be utterly astonished and disgusted with this half witted idea.

  • Earl Turner

    So. Are we ready to talk about a white homeland yet?

  • Hugh Farnham

    Just what we need. A former resident of a third-world police state, given a badge, gun, and police costume. On steroids because that’s what other police officers in his precinct use to keep buff.

    What can go wrong with all that?
