Almost from the moment that the Black Lives Matter movement sprang from the ashes of the Ferguson, Missouri riots nearly two years ago, the anti-cop group seems to have been calling the shots on police enforcement procedures.
Law enforcement departments across the country have responded to BLM’s demands to order their personnel to undergo such things as implicit racial bias testing.
Now, in yet another example of the tail wagging the dog, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced Monday that beginning in 2017, the Justice Department’s own employees will be required to undergo similar training and testing.
Fox New reported:

More than 33,000 agents and DOJ prosecutors will be subject to the training, which Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates said in a memo to employees will address “implicit biases” based on stereotypes of racial or ethnic groups, according to Reuters.
“But implicit bias also presents unique challenges to effective law enforcement, because it can alter where investigators and prosecutors look for evidence and how they analyze it without their awareness or ability to compensate,” Yates said in her memo.
This had Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume scratching his head. If DOJ lawyers are going to be subjected to additional training, there’s another area that should be addressed.

Last month, U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen ordered DOJ lawyers who were defending President Obama’s amnesty executive actions to go back to school. In response to deceptive statements they repeatedly made to the court, he ordered them to take a remedial ethics class.
A lot of people agreed with Hume (and the judge), and some even suggested the ethics training should go all the way to the top of the agency.

@brithume I think we can say good bye to policing and justice.
