DOJ announces launch of mandatory implicit racial bias testing , Brit Hume has a better idea

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.
