Thirteen years ago, the police sergeants exam became a political football in Chicago's never-ending game of racial politics when a test produced just five minority promotions out of 114.
Tee up the football. It could happen again.
One month after mailing test scores to would-be sergeants, the Daley administration is refusing to release a racial breakdown of top-scoring candidates.
Who other than Fran Spielman was questioning the racial breakdown and the reason for the delay in releasing the result? Nowhere in the article does it mention any alderman or group that is upset by the results. Fran only rehashes the results from 13 years ago and the firestorm it created. Me thinks Fran reads Second City Cop and sees the grumblings and theories of anxious coppers.
