Here we have a story about affirmative action and judicial activism at their worst. It focuses on a black female firefighter who was given the job despite repeatedly failing the physical fitness test. A judge decided that she deserved to be a firefighter because NYPD has a “previous history of discrimination.”
The judge decided that being unfit to do the physical part of a very dangerous and very physical job was no big deal.
An FDNY recruit is getting a third chance to pass the training academy after collecting top firefighter pay for a year in desk jobs, sources told The Post.
Choeurlyne Doirin-Holder, 39 — one of four women among 320 current probies in training — failed midway through a Fire Academy class in 2013, and returned to her former job as an EMT.
She even got favorable treatment then, because she didn’t return to her EMT job that paid her $55,000. She was assigned to a desk job with the fire department and make $81,000 last year.
That was then, this is now. She’s been on the job for ten days and guess what?
Choeurlyne Doirin-Holder broke her foot during a routine equipment check after just ten days in her position, Brian Kilmeade said on “Fox and Friends” this morning.
Doirin-Holder gained attention this summer after classmates publicly criticized her physical fitness levels, saying she was unqualified for the job.
Despite failing several tests, the former EMT was named a “priority hire” by a judge due to past experiences of discrimination.
The New York Post reports on the latest incident:
Getting off the truck, Doirin-Holder missed a step and landed on her left foot, suffering a fracture, sources said.
In training for a hazmat assignment, officers found her struggling to perform the required tasks.
Firefighters called the tripping incident embarrassing — and alarming.
‘If you’re going to get hurt in the firehouse checking a rig, what would happen at a fire?’ an insider asked.
Thanks to this judge, Doirin-Holder will be knocking down probably in excess of $100,000 per year with NYPD in no time. Not that she’ll be doing any fire fighting of course.
Judge, I personally hope your house catches fire and you see this affirmative action queen coming to save you. You deserve that nightmare.
