Does any one have any Information about Dr James Outtzs and Outtzs and Associates independent examiner in Washington DC" which is a government-approved firm which specializes in manipulating fire and police exam results in order to grant passing grades to the largest number of non-white.
I known he has done Testing for Toledo and Seattle Bridgeport Fire Depts.
The information I am looking for is about problems with his Tests???????????
He just gave Test for Bridgeport Fired Dept entrance exam.
White Candidates score High on written and very low on Oral part given by Dr Outtzs
Minority Candidates score low on written and very high on the oral given by Dr Outtzs
Top 100 are only 10 white male and rest are minority and women.
Is there any proof that Dr James Outtzs and Outtzs and Associates have connection with IABPFF?
What they did in Bridgeport is criminal act and brothers there fighting test need are help.

There seems to be some good information on him... Just need to spell the last name correctly.
There is a good deal of info out there about him, though I'm sure a run through an engine like Lexis-Nexis would give you more articles. It looked like an interesting topic so I did a little research. You're not going to find any smoking gun, but you will find some very interesting reading.
