JUST HIRE THEM!

From the December 16th, 2019 column by LNP executive editor Tom Murse, “Can an old newspaper learn new tricks? Absolutely,” (click here).
    
      I commented on the above before stating LNP was 30 to 40 years behind the times. But it’s worse. This is just insulting!
     Why do they need a fellowship program for “emerging minority reporters?” Just hire them! They’re coming out of journalism schools everywhere! Why a special program? What in the world?
     And why is Meko writing about private wells? Why don’t you have her in the courthouse reporting on the blatant racism there? Unbelievable.

**   Sadler [former Lancaster City Police Chief Keith Sadler] said police here are trying to recruit more minority police officers. Of his 144-member force, 10 are African-Americans, and 11 are Latinos.
     He said police have gone into churches, started a Police Athletic League, and soon will restart a police cadet program.
     We applaud these initiatives.
From the September 28th, 2014 LNP editorial, “We must confront the issue of race in Lancaster,” (click here).
I do not believe a minority (other than a woman) has been sworn into the force since this editorial over six years ago and yet LNP stays mum. Something is not working!

*     when Citizen Complaints are investigated by an independent panel and not the LCPD itself I will take these efforts seriously…it is difficult to understand how it makes sense that an entity that receives a complaint or concern decides its own outcome
This excellent comment is posted on Lancaster Online under the story linked to below about the community police working group.

IS THERE NOT ONE
QUALIFIED MINORITY?

    They don’t want “qualified” anybody – they might buck the system and be honest or not want to go along with the program. The white guys aren’t qualified either….. Act 120 cert doesn’t automatically make you a good cop….

    These @ssholes keep hiring whites only because NOONE else besides you makes any noise about it.
