Barack Obama’s “Justice” Department is suing the Pennsylvania State Police because Obama wants to make sure that fat, incompetent women dominate the police and criminals win.
On Tuesday, Eric Holder’s agency filed suit because 30% of women applicants since 2003 have failed a physical fitness test used to screen applicants for state trooper positions. And apparently we can’t have that, so the Obamaniks want the test eliminated. Better to have fat people who are wheezing as they fail to chase and catch criminals, right? This is, by the way, a preview of what will happen (actually what is already happening) with the Marines’ infantry program and with the Navy SEALS. All of the usual, necessary standards are being reduced or “revised” so that physically unfit women will qualify and those organizations’ quality will be reduced. It is an insult, by the way, to the 70% of women who actually met these strenuous requirements that are there for a reason.
The head of the Pennsylvania State Police urged the U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday to withdraw a new lawsuit that claims the agency’s physical fitness standards for recruits discriminate against women. Commissioner Frank Noonan said identical requirements for men and women make sense because most new troopers perform the same job, and that lowering standards would endanger safety and insult those who have already met them. “We will not be bullied into changing and lowering our standards by the Department of Justice or anybody else,” Noonan told reporters outside the police academy in Hershey.
Noonan said the standards for incoming recruits are modest, including a 300 meter run in 1 minute and 17 seconds, 13 push-ups, a 14-inch vertical leap and running for 1.5 miles in 17 minutes and 48 seconds. He said a recruit in poor physical condition can slow down the entire class.
Um, some people can even walk 1.5 miles in 17 minutes and 48 seconds. This is an easy test.
The lawsuit said that nearly all male recruits pass the initial physical readiness tests, while about 30 percent of women fail. About 5 percent of the department’s 4,700 sworn members are women, and Noonan said recruiting more women is a priority.
The 10-page lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court in Harrisburg asks a judge to order the department hire women on an equal basis with men. The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division argued that the different pass rates for men and women were evidence the tests had a disparate impact on women.
HUH? No, G-d and nature have a “disparate impact on women,” since women are naturally physically less strong than men on average. That’s just a fact of life. The different pass rates are evidence of the way things are, minus steroids.
It seeks an order preventing the state police from engaging in discriminatory employment practices, as well as back pay and other remedies for women who did not pass the test. . . . Noonan said female troopers generally support maintaining uniform fitness benchmarks. “They do not want separate standards for this job, because invariably that would make them second-class troopers, troopers who can’t meet the standards,” Noonan said. Pennsylvania has one of the nation’s largest state police forces. It provides coverage to about 80 percent of the state, including many rural and remote areas.
“By the nature of our job, we’re out there by ourselves,” Noonan said. “A lot of times we don’t have backup. So to put a test in place that basically passes everybody — well, what’s the point of having a test?”
Hmmm . . . state troopers never have to chase after criminals, right? So, clearly a physical fitness test has nothing whatsoever to do with catching the bad guys. Isn’t that obvious?
Also, this is very unfair to donut-loving fat chicks and overweight lesbians. And Gabourey Sidibe, who would make a wonderful state trooper.
Are the FBI and CIA next?
Frankly, this is all very boring to me. It would be much more exciting if the Obama Justice Department sued Elle, Vogue, and Cosmo for not using three-hundred-pound models in photo shoots. This is highly discriminatory and very demoralizing and hostile to the “differently-sized,” “calorically-gifted,” “diversely consuming,” and “unconventionally digestive” in our country. Ditto for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition which not only discriminates against chubby women, but the chubby chasers who love them.
Remember that lawsuit some guy once filed against Hooters for not allowing him to become a waiter there? An intolerant judge quickly laughed that out of court. I say it’s time for Eric Holder to go after them and the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, too.
It simply isn’t fair that they have no one with the physique of Jim Belushi working for either.
