Dear Chief Craig: Just Take the Test
Cincinnati Police Chief James Craig has given notice he will not take the Ohio police certification test, which would be required for him to have police powers. This sounds bad to me. Why would he not just take the test? It's reportedly 200 questions. I don't know how hard of a test it is, but I would have presumed he could pass it quite easily. By him not wanting to take it leas me to assume it may be more difficult, thus his knowledge of Ohio laws may not be up to snuff, yet. That may be the reason for him not taking it. I'm just surprised this has become an issue for him to address at all. He should just take the test like every other police officer has to do. I understand he doesn't literally need police powers, but I think the Chief of police of Cincinnati should have the power to make an arrest if needed.
