Obama Administration Suing Pa. State
Police Over Physical Fitness Tests

Daily Caller, by Chuck Ross

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/30/2014 9:44:58 PM

Saying that the physical fitness tests that the Pennsylvania state police uses to identify entry-level candidates are not job-related, the Department of Justice is suing the agency for sex discrimination since more men pass the tests than women. “Through the use of these physical fitness tests, Defendants have engaged in a pattern or practice of employment discrimination against women in [Pennsylvania State Police´s] selection process for entry-level trooper positions in violation of Title VII [of the Civil Rights Act of 1964],” reads the DOJ’s lawsuit. At issue are the state agency’s 2003 and 2009 physical fitness tests that are one

Comments:
All funding should be cut to the DOJ until they quit filing ridiculous, wasteful lawsuits like this. There are so many insane radicals in all the agencies I wonder if they can ever be fixed. It´s not that there are more important things that need the DOJ´s attention. s/o

I don´t know about you - - but when I yell for the police - - I want a 5´1", 118lb woman to show up.

There´s nothing more fearsome to a criminal than a little girl carrying handcuffs.

Accordingly, gang-bangers will surely modify their methods at gang-rape to accommodate less-vigorous police officers. That chase through back yards and over fences will take place at half the rate as before the new rules.
The world of the Ministry of Social Justice: depending upon kinder, gentler criminals.

And exactly who pays the price when a 4´10" 100 lb. female cadet fails to take down a suspected rapist/murderer who is 6´6" and 300 lbs??

What male cadet would want that 4´10" 100 lb. woman, who couldn´t pass the physical fitness test, watching his back on patrol, facing a couple of gang members with guns?

This is stupid beyond words. Take some time to build your muscles, pass the physical test, or choose to be a civilian employee at a desk, not endangering sworn officers.

PA State Troopers tend to be pretty big, strong guys. If there are more smaller weaker women, will we see more shootings or tasings to subdue suspects who resist arrest? It is not safe for a smaller weaker officer to pull over a vehicle in the middle of the night when no one else is around. The PA Troopers´ jobs just got a little bit more dangerous.

The governor of Pennsylvania should announce an immediate press conference saying that they intend to ignore the DOJ action, nor will they spend any resources defending a frivolous lawsuit, nor will they even show up in court, nor do they acknowledge any federal role in how they manage their police forces.

Oh brother! This is rich. If calling 911 always request a tested male to render assistance. The opposite sex would take an hour to get dressed, an hour for makeup and still have an accident while rushing to the scene due to the fact she had forgotten to dabble on lipstick.

It used to be that private citizens who were impacted by or discriminated against by state/city actions would sue.
Now we have litigation-happy DOJ keeping a watchful eye to find opportunities to sue for anything.
Obama´s DOJ has sued Arizona, New York City, CT, GA, PA, NJ, CA --and those are just the ones I remember.
I think it is time to sue DOJ into oblivion for all of their lawlessness and failure to enforce laws they don´t like

First I disagree with this lawsuit completely. Secondly I have worked with many women police officers who were just as competent as their male counterparts if not more competent in all respects. it is not about an officers size or strength. Success is based on that officers training and how to apply what the officer was taught coupled with street smarts. I remember very clearly the day the first women police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty in America. The officer chased an armed robber into a parking garage in WA DC. the suspect shot her dead when she tried to arrest him without drawing her sidearm. Being stupid will always get an officer Killed male or female
I have made numerous high hazard arrests along with female officers , never once have questioned their competence or their actions.
Many men &women will become police officers for the wrong reason and when the going gets tough they fail and will take up another line of work
The badge is a sword with which an officer upholds the law, it is not a shield to hide behind when the going gets tough. Those that do not subscribe to that mentality fall by the wayside

I am of the old school. Females do not belong in law enforcement, fire fighting and warfare uniforms. I´ve seen news videos where the female stands back while the big guys kick in the door. What if the big guys weren´t there? Plenty of other careers for them to have. Flame on. I care not.

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves. Along with his telling amnesty activists that "no force on Earth can stop us," this should figure prominently in Republican campaign ads for the rest of the season... a prospect that must have tightened a few sphincters among congressional Democrats, especially those who have been working overtime to distance themselves from Obama, or even pretend they are actively

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was on “Special Report,” where he discussed the Ebola threat, border security and the Secret Service security lapses. "The Secret Service agency merits an independent review right now," Johnson said of the security incidents. Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

The Department of Homeland Security flew drones equipped with video cameras over the United States--away from border and coastal areas--for 1,726 hours from fiscal 2011 through this April, according to the Government Accountability Office. At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.

At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
