The tests they failed

First they failed the written test, then the unwritten one

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Hundreds of people applying to join the police have gone on the rampage in the northern Indian city of Ghaziabad.

Riots began because many felt a written test was too difficult, officials say.

The mob of would-be officers rampaged along a stretch of the main road to Delhi, attacking people and property. Almost 30 people were arrested.

Passengers were forced from their vehicles and reports say several women were molested. It took police an hour to bring the riots under control. [BBC]What if this lot had actually passed the test.
