    Good thing they don't rank candidates for spelling and grammar.

    FYI - I counted approximately 40 spelling and grammar errors in the original post. All I can say is I hope blizzard had someone else proofread his job application.

    I was thinking the same thing regarding the Grammar and Spelling contained within this piece of writing. I'm sorry but if you really want to be taken seriously and have credibility given to your cause PROOFREAD, SPELL CHECK, CHECK GRAMMAR USAGE. As this document stands, you'd find me raising my eyebrows and smirking at you rather than taking you seriously.

    14 guys sued to get into the last Providence Police training class, charging (non-racial) favoritism, something to do with who was on the boards for oral interviews. They won.

    The state of the FD is not even an issue at this point. it is the state of the school system up there.

    So the guy cant spell. I cant either. Does ANYONE care about the topic?? Maybe this guy has a good case? And if what he writes is true, then yes, it WILL effect most of you some day. Everyone is sidetracked by his spelling?? Give me a break, he's applying to be a firefighter, not an English professer.

    Sounds like a lot of sour grapes. Of course, I don't know. But, I wonder how one knows that minority proctors gave white applicants lower scores than whites applicants?

    If you want to know what I think about the topic, here goes.

    These race-based lawsuits make me sick. I don't care who the alleged injured party is or what color they are. Everything is about race these days. Go intere, take the damn test and score high. If you cared a rat's butt about getting on the job, you studied, you worked out and you knew what you were doing so that you scored so high that they couldn't take it away form you if they wanted to.

    Notice here there are about 6 or 7 "issues". It's called throw a bunch of blivots against the wall and hope that one or two of them stick.

    If any of your allegations are true, it boils down to a proctor (no matter what color) gave special consideration to a candidate (no matter what color). That's wrong and probably illegal. But unless we introduce race into the picture, it's not sexy and it won't sell to a jury.

    And no, this will never effect me in any way, shape or form.

    IF what he wrote IS true, then how can anyone not have a problem with it?
    Forget about race, what if a Chief was breaking civil service law to get his son or daughter a job?? Or change the test process, midstream, to assure his newphew gets the job, when he otherwise would'nt?? It would'nt bother you? Yeah, unless it was actually you who was getting passed over.
    I know none of the facts in this case. But IF they're true then he may have a good point. If it doesnt effect YOU, it might not today, but these things set a precedent; and not just for the Fire service.
    Anybody know what IGM means??

    I'd still like to know what evidence they have that this happened.

    I don't know...I'm sure Connecticut would give Bridgeport to New Jersey if you guys just asked.

    Imagine a guy not fighting an unfair hiring procedure until after his child was hired through that very loophole. Then fighting to close that very hole.

    I don't know. Don't you think we have enough places like that already?
