NC Highway Patrol recruit dies during training - R.I.P. 22-year-old Isiah Hardy Nixon

RALEIGH -- A spokesman for the North Carolina Highway Patrol says an applicant has collapsed and died after completing a 1.5-mile run.

Sgt. Jeff Gordon said Wednesday that the applicant, 22-year-old Isiah Hardy Nixon, of Wendell, had just completed the run which is part of the screening process when he collapsed around 12:30 p.m.

Gordon said medical personnel were on hand at the patrol training academy in south Raleigh and provided care until emergency personnel arrived. Nixon was transported to WakeMed, where he was pronounced dead.

Gordon said applicants are required to take a written test as well as a fitness test which consists of push-up, sit-up and flexibility tests in addition to the run. He said applicants must meet a certain percentile to pass.

He should have gone to CPD or CCSD and pay your Chinaman to waive the power test.

Very sorry to hear this about a young guy just wanting to serve as a Cop, but ,
Here in the Ultra Corrupt Communist Capital of North America, Chimpcongo, we just pay off our local stooge Democommunist Politician to have us passed on all job applicant tests, without having to show up. A female applicant for CPD or CFD who can't climb a 4 foot wall? No problem, we have a "Closed Door" session for you.
