Wait. So retired black cops want to lower the bar on hiring more cops? Are they basically admitting that the written exam is too hard for blacks to score high enough to be cops? Is that like admitting defeat? Or is the test 'too white'?

Nope, we're not a militarized state.

Am I the only one thinking that all of this could have been avoided if the councilman had done his job and mediated the dispute between the business and the neighbors?
Oh, wait, there's no media coverage of that.

That they've never been cited by police for these alleged noise complaints should tell you all you need to know about the validity of this hearing as far as Crickets is involved. Pathetic it got this far and shameful on the part of the councilman for NOT supporting a family-owned business who takes excellent care of their employees. And no, I do not work at Crickets. I have been there for music, and found it to be an excellent bar with great food and a superb staff.
Let's hope the rest of council is more aware of the good things Crickets does for the staff and patrons and musicians in this town and declines to forward this absurd issue to the Ohio Department of Liquor Control.

Well played, Mahoning County. Maybe you should spend more time on violent crimes. There have been 21 murders this year, two OVI deaths. #Priorities

Gerrymandered districts are going to be the downfall of democracy, regardless of which party is drawing the lines. You shouldn't be able to make up the rules as you go along, changing them all the time to ensure you win.

Awwww, poor producers. I guess Exxon will have to fall back on the $44.9 billion they made in 2012 or the mere $32.6 billion they made in 2013.
