Despite already having lower standards than the rest of the country — and despite the shooting of Justine Damond by Somali police officer Mohamed Noor — the city of Minneapolis is slated to lower their standards for police even further, according to a new report.
From The Daily Caller:
The July police shooting of Justine Damond triggered the city to scrutinize its psychological standards for police, with many claiming they’d become lax. Psychiatrist Thomas Gratzer has run psych testing for the Minneapolis police for the past five years, and in that time, he has eliminated four of the five tests used to determine whether a candidate is fit to be an officer, APM reported Thursday. Now, Gratzer is facing firing not for gutting his standard, but for screening out too many minorities.
Mohamed Noor, the officer who shot Damond, is Somali and was one of 200 cops approved by Gratzer’s standards over the past five years, which were already far below the national standard.
Minneapolis used a more standard five-test procedure up until 2012, and according to a 2004 federal study, those tests worked. The study found that the officers flagged as concerning by the tests were three times more likely to engage in misconduct, APM reported.
This will surely end well.
Incidentally, prosecutors said last week they don’t “yet” have “enough evidence” to prosecute Noor for shooting and killing Damond for no specific reason.
Surely, racist Republican bigots — all of whom are literal Nazis — may think this collapse in standards is a bad thing, but I think Frank Luntz really nailed it recently when he told off congressman Steve King for suggesting the cult-like worship of “diversity” might not be a good thing.
If more Justines need to die in order to satisfy arbitrary racial quotas, I think we can all agree that’s a small price to pay.
