CBS’s ‘SWAT’ Attacks ‘Male’ Physical Standards for Cops as ‘Biased,’ Calls Latino a ‘Tool’

It is absurd that society would expect a select group of elite police officers to adhere to such high physical standards. So says CBS’s this week’s CBS’s. S.W.A.T.

S.W.A.T. appears in the episode entitled “Sentinal”, which was broadcast on Friday, October 22. Christina Alonso (Lena Esco), a member, is unhappy that this year’s SWAT Academy applicants list has no women. She talks to Nora Fowler (Norma Kuhling), a female officer who pulled herself from consideration, to find out why.

Fowler: I was interested, but I decided not to take the risks that come with trying out. 

Alonso: So, what do you mean by that?

Fowler: I took a closer look at the swat training and fitness standards. Not only are they out of date, they’re biased in favor of male cadets. 

Alonso: You’ve got the skills and drive to get past all the boys’ club nonsense. 

Fowler: The problem is not one of willpower. This goes much deeper than that. It’s not just me. Are you familiar with Officer Park, North Hollywood Division 

Alonso: Yes.

Fowler: She tore her rotator cuff trying out for one of the swat PFQs.

Alonso: A cadet had the same thing happen when I was training for SWAT. 

Fowler – Let’s guess-a female officer 

Nicki Bradley. What did you do to know this? 

Fowler Swat PFQs put a ton of emphasis on explosive strength. Push-ups, pull-ups, box jumps… Are all exercises proven to put women at a physiological disadvantage. 

Alonso – Nicki was anxious about the push up portion. It was so difficult for her to train, that she ended up getting hurt.

Fowler, That’s a good idea. You can do only 50 push-ups if you don’t have the strength to do them like most guys. 

Alonso’s: It doesn’t take SWAT.

Fowler: Male candidates are more likely to succeed, and female candidates are more likely to injure themselves trying to clear these arbitrary fitness thresholds that have nothing to do with actual SWAT work. Have a look yourself at the data. We all spoke with the other women applicants. A whole career is too risky.

Alonso: But what if that could be changed? 

Fowler: I wish you all the best. Fowler: Good luck. I was able to look after my six. 

Does the audience have to believe that “explosive force” is not an important aspect of SWAT teams or police work? It is wrong for candidates to be capable of subduing a male suspect. Gender politics has been lowering physical standards in numerous fields requiring levels of strength associated with males in the aggregate. The reduction has been happening in both the military and law enforcement.

“Look, I’m all for improving and expanding our training and recruitment, but let’s be honest. We can’t just simply lower the bar for female officers,” cadet trainer David ‘Deacon’ Kay (Jay Harrington) later tells Alonso. “I’ve never had to get into a push-up contest with a suspect before,” Alonso replies.

A key measure of upper-body muscle strength is push-ups. Upper body strength is Thank youThis is important when dealing with aggressive or hostile suspects. Deacon ultimately gives in and changes the physical requirements of female cadets to Alonso’s concern. Gosh, I am sure that will make the team SoIt is much more productive.

SWAT was also called in to help a suspect steal insulin packages for his child. This episode highlighted the high cost of crucial insulin treatment. It left out the fact that Trump had lowered the cost of insulin treatments to low-income patients and the Biden administration inexplicably halted that order.

In a new twist, this season of S.W.A.T. has finally recognized that Latino officers are in important positions in the Los Angeles Police Department. Unfortunately, it did so by introducing a Hispanic lieutenant who is trying to get a black man fired.

Last season, the year of endless BLM scripts, Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson (Shemar Moore) went to the media about some racist cops who had not been removed from the force. Higher-ups in the LAPD are still not happy about it. A new S.W.A.T. head was appointed. team, Rodrigo Sanchez (David DeSantos). It turns out Sanchez is really there to find a way to get Hondo to quit the force.

Hondo, Sanchez and Sentinel fight to the death in “Sentinal”.

Sanchez: This plan is not my design. Sanchez: I am not the architect of this plan. 

Hondo: What do you know? You’re damn right, you are a tool. You are a brown man coming after a Black man for calling out racist cops. These statements don’t make any sense. 

Sanchez: These are not race-related issues.

Hondo: Then, what’s the deal?

Sanchez: You are a cop who went outside the chain of command. Now they’re gonna use you to make an example for everyone to witness. 

The left is losing Latinos and now they are portraying them as “tools” of an inherently racist white system. My understanding is that vilifying Latinos together with white people can be a strategy.

Apparently, leftists do not like it when their intersectional fantasies do not comport with reality. It will be interesting if Hollywood pushes more Latino “tool” narratives as Hispanics increasingly reject the Democrats’ agendas.

Progressive, Neutrogena and others brought the rant to your attention. Charmin. You can fight back by letting these advertisers know what you think of them sponsoring such content.
