    Because you obviously don't believe in competing fairly for your career.
    You are even willing to take some one elses job under the guise of race. Is that really what you want to teach your children?

    Why even go to school? just have the judge call up and change whatever the results may be. That's exactly what is going on in this situation.

    Listen man, be honest.... That was you in the video with the hat right?

    What do you mean by "clown"? I am not familiar with that scholarly vocabulary, I don't have my masters or my PHd yet, like you. Educate us please.

    Probably not for this class, but you'll be one of the first ones called for the following class IMO.

    Almosthere. In regards to almostthere, i would say that at least he admits that the basis for the priority hiring issue is bullsh*t. But In reality, he is only doing what i believe any of us would do in his situation. I do not believe that any of us would turn down an opportunity to join the ranks simply becuz we did not personally agree with a specific departmental prodedure. I think his only complaint is in regards to the degrading language directed at the mental and physical ability of the priority candidates, not to the situation itself.

    Priority hiring is wrong. The Vulcans have a race problem. The judge is a moron. Qualified individuals got screwed over. But these problems were created by the vulcans, not by almostthere. Taking it all out on him as if hes the supreme icon of this madness does nothing but waste forum space on childish, repetitive nonsense which does a diservice to those who visit this forum for QUALITY information regarding the hiring process.

    Almostthere, please do not respond to every attack. This way we dont have to skim through 10-20 post before finally finding an answer to a legimate question or valuable update. For those who have a problem with the priority hiring issue, lets all continue to use this forum to express our ideas to each other in regards to what the DEPARTMENT IS CURRENTLY DOING. For those who have a personal problem with what ALMOSTTHERE IS CURRENTLY DOING... pm him or get his phone number so that you guys can scramble elsewhere.

No idea what i'd do if I got the call tomorrow.
    Def make the move if you can take the pay cut. You will be better off

    You are wrong my friend. My brother been a cop for a while now and he chose not to take the FD exam because he loves his job. FD is not for everyone, just because a lot of people want it doesn't mean Everyone wants it.

As a candidate you take the test in front of you and hope you prepared well enough to get hired. What are you angry about? Do you have cousins or nephews thatdidn't well on 2000? Regardless of the testing methods the academy still stands and every ff has to go through it.
    I don't require people to read my posts, but if you had looked into some of my recent ones; I've pointed out that I came from out of state, had no extra points and waited my turn.
    Therefore.
    Ergo; no. I do not have cousins or nephews or brothers or sisters that didn't do well. But I am on the job and have as I've stated before, a vested interest in the job.

    If any of you had any interest in the job, you would show up too. We say "Don't just get onto the job. Get into the job."

    That is why.

    Oooooooo

    Bottom line: You missed out when it was your turn. Now thanks to a lawsuit, you have another chance. Yet you are too dense and apparently good at convincing yourself that you are doing the right thing.

    And that is what this job is all about: Doing the right thing.

    Starting off by taking the job as a handout IS NOT the "right thing".

    Hey guys, I hope all is well. I received my package the other day and i'm excited to start the process. Since there are promotions still waiting to enter the academy, a couple of hundred priority hires and over 700 guys from the OC starting the process, what happens to those that go through the hiring process but don't get into the academy? Isn't the CPAT, medical, and pysch all time sensitive?
