The title of this post is the proposed alternative to this Reuters story – “Exclusive: Justice Department mandates ‘implicit bias’ training for agents, lawyers”
In the wake of the terror attack in Orlando where a number of red flags were ignored in the name of political correctness the Obama administration has decided now is the perfect time to bury federal agents heads even deeper in the sand.
I know a lot of people like to think racism is a thing of the past, that is by no means true. A few seconds on the internet proves that all races have their corner of cyberspace where they can go nurture and foment their irrational hate. That said, this response to a handful of super-publicized incidents is just insane.
The U.S. Justice Department will announce on Monday that more than 33,000 federal agents and prosecutors will receive training aimed at preventing unconscious bias from influencing their law enforcement decisions, department officials told Reuters.
The training will bring Justice Department employees in line with many local police departments across the country that have implemented bias prevention plans following a spate of shootings of unarmed black men by white police officers.
Nationwide protests following those shootings blamed police bias for unnecessary use of force against minorities.
The department had been criticized for not developing its own policies to combat bias after recommending local police do so at the direction of a task force created by President Barack Obama after riots in 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri.
Given that people are literally dying because if it, now hardly seems like the right time to double down on leftist engineering of justice.
My concern is how much of an honest picture we’re receiving here. Our awareness is shaped by what the media decides to report on and how much they report it. There is a lot of crime that doesn’t get reported, and frankly you could be led to believe that black on white crime never happens considering how much that gets reported (seemingly never) while white on black crime, or incidences involving a black victim get magnified to a perception skewing degree. Given the rate of white on black crime is actually slightly lower than the rate of black on white crime (and each group victimizes their own the most, by far)
You can’t blame the politics of this when the news media so readily reports in such ways that our perception of reality on this topic is so skewed, but here’s how you know the Obama adminstration is engaging in politically correct bulls**t aimed at tying the hands of law enforcment in the name of social engineering…
Department of Homeland Security employees, which include 60,000 border patrol officers and agents, will not be subject to the training.
Why would the border patrol be exempt from having “implicit bias” brainwashed out of the agency? Because there is validity to having such bias? So the rest is basically leftist kabuki theater, the problem with that they’re basically playing with everyone else’s lives in the process.
