Diversity is a bad word and here's why.

1. A police officer candidate should be void of all racial indifference, period.

2. Using a quota system ensures that the best quality candidates are not accepted and that substandard candidates are accepted. When the candidates are dumbed down the training will be effected so that the less capable candidates can pass or there is a higher rate of failure.

3. Assuming the courses are dumbed down, we're placing any person in Aurora at a disadvantage because the less qualified police officer is now charged with enforcing the law based on his/her interpretation of the law. That has real consequences on the quality of life of the people in Aurora.

4. To subject the people of Aurora to less qualified police is and of itself a disservice to the community.

Race should have absolutely no place in the hiring of any job, the grant of any contract or anything of the like. Using race by claiming diversity is a failure of the individual, not the hiring process of the police department.

People that want diversity are themselves racist, they just don't have the sense to recognize their own assumptions or stupidity.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character

Is this saying that blacks have lower IQ's than whites?

Are you going to address the OP's arguments or stick with lefty logic?

In 2012 it should come down to the better candidate getting the job. PERIOD! Skin color is irrelevant!

The block quote link is broken, it goes to something else (the link at the bottom is correct)...

If people can't pass the test, lets change the test to accomodate them!

Standards? What standards? Who needs them?

Quota based systems will never produce the best candidates. Anytime you make numbers a priority over qualification you will sacrifice quality.
Institutionalized discrimination is still discrimination.

We should have learned from the educational decline in our schools following Board v. Board of Ed.

1953: Curriculum reflecting a group with an average IQ of 100.

2012: Curriculum designed to ensure that low-IQ students will pass "standardized" testing, while the higher IQ students are forced to attend private school or suffer from boredom due to a dumbed down curriculum.
