Swimming black cops

Joe Kelley's The Sake Of Argument:
NORTH MIAMI, Fla. -- The North Miami police department dropped a swimming requirement for applicants, saying they need new officers and want to encourage blacks to sign up.

North Miami police say they are dropping the requirement for a year. They say few departments require swimming and their officers rarely save people in water.

Officials also believe the requirement discourages African-Americans and Haitian Americans from applying. The issue surfaced a year ago when a Haitian-American city councilman asked police to drop the requirement because he said blacks historically can't swim.


How about we just broadcast to all the North Miami bad guys that if you’re being chased on foot by a black police officer, you should just jump into one of the many canals and ponds and swim across to the other side?

I agree. This is ridiculous.
