  1. I think anyone who can actually perform the job should get it. Even in my job, it has requirements of how much you can lift. If you can’t lift that much, you don’t get hired. I feel sure the fire department needs to have stipulations similar to that. If the candidate can’t maintain the minimum standard, they should not be hired. I don’t care if they are women or men!

    The Rodney King beating, trail, judgement and the Los Angeles riots never would have happened had “gender fairness” not been the policy of the LAPD.

    • I had to go back and read up on the King beating. I did not remember any women were involved. Thanks for the info.

  3. I think that this is not a good policy. If the women are held to a lower standard, they could be put into a dangerous position when they aren’t as prepared to fight.
