To ensure a "fair and impartial" criminal justice system, the U.S. Department of Justice plans to train every one of its law enforcement employees and prosecutors to "recognize and address" their "implicit bias."
The training begins on Tuesday with top Justice Department officials, including Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and the leadership of the FBI, ATF, District Attorney's Office and U.S. Marshals Service.
On Monday, Yates announced that "over 28,000" department employees "will learn how to recognize and address their own implicit bias, which are the unconscious or subtle associations that individuals make between groups of people and stereotypes about those groups."
According to the DOJ news release, "Implicit bias can affect interactions and decisions due to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion and socio-economic status, as well as other factors. Social science has shown that all individuals experience some form of implicit bias but that the effects of those biases can be countered through training."
The implicit bias training now will become part of DOJ's regular training curricula.
“The Department of Justice has a responsibility to do everything we can to ensure that our criminal justice system is fair and impartial,” said Deputy Attorney General Yates.
Who thinks up all this stuff?? It just keeps on pouring out of this administration. I will be really happy when and IF obama is done for....it the elections...
This is what you get when there are no adults running the insane asylum.
This is such BS crap! Five months left to this incompetent's stinking term(s) and they're wasting time and taxpayer dollars to marginalize the threat and turn our law enforcement into like incompetents! This so-called "training" will be totally useless when Trump takes the oval office and he calls out the enemy and gets a declaration of war from the new Congress!
I find that the more you try to control people the more they rebel against it. They become angry and hold that anger inside.
Islam uses the reward system. If you kill anyone who is not following the koran you will be rewarded. It is the old carrot and stick. We use the good guy bad guy system to fool others. 0bama uses straight out lying and doing whatever he had planned to do before he gave you the lie. If you question him he is not obligated (in his mind) to answer you for he is the supreme being looking for a throne. Right now that throne is in the WH but, trust me, he is on the lookout for the next plateau for his next throne and he is greasing the way to it as he sits on this one!
Yeah.. By 'IMPLICIT BIAS' Lynch means: WHITE PRIVELLEGE, Christian ethics, and Western cultural standards.
This is nothing more than PC indoctrination... Worse, this type of training has become a platform to indoctrinate non-minorities in Self-emulation and hate... part of the Marxist ideology used to destroy the host nations culture, by establishing a sense of personal guilt, for perceived and contrived social injustice..
I don't care what anyone says I will always believe my lying eyes. Numbers don't lie just check FBI stats who commits crime in this country
Obama is wasting money again.
So What??? Who cares??
This is DIVERSITY training, folks. This training is meant to ensure that no Christian beliefs that hold to the holy truths of right and wrong, are said in the cultural marketplace. This training is meant to ensure that no nationalist views that this is OUR country are never expressed in the cultural marketplace of ideas. This training is meant to enforce that islam IS a religion deserving of equal respect with all other views of cultures, religion and faith. This training is meant to expand on the so-called gender identification categories, so that everyone who wants to romp with children, beasts, homos, or any other perverse thing, is treated as a RIGHT, not a choice.
The Chairperson at the college where I teach underwent a 5-6 week intensive training on Diversity and Inclusion, to make sure her Christian beliefs never are said aloud. This very successfully puts fear into those of us who want to scream our faith, because now it is training being supported and offered by our administration. Optional for the moment, but I bet by next year it is mandatory.
Just like (at school) we no longer even call true 'immigrants' by that name, which is truthful for legal immigrants. Now the terminology has been changed to "international student". They want to and will change the definitions of everything that is held sacred, unless we stop this destruction of our country. So they are changing terms on everything, just to make sure we don't notice when ALL definitions of things have been changed on us (while we didn't pay attention).
So in one course for a few weeks, they successfully manipulate every possible situation pertaining to borders, nationality, Constitution and scripture, thereby shutting up Christians, Moderates, Constitutionalists and Patriots. Every group on the terror watch list, all handled in one fell swoop.
Yeah, lets spend more money! I wonder how much all of the candles and incense cost for the training sessions. I know, why don't you set up training on how to not insult the public's intelligence, i.e. censoring the Orlando terrorists 911 calls, you dolts!
If it looks like a crook, and smells like a crook, it must be protected.
mindsets of idiots, or just some kind of legal maneuver to avoid potential future prosecution.. facebook said the same thing recently, as if anybody believes attending a silly class will change behaviors.
when working for a large corporation we all had to go to one of this type of stupid class, for gender sensitivity. on my way to the class, when leaving the elevator I helped a woman carry some of the too many boxes she had. Turned out it was the class instructor. She was happy to get the help. -- and guess what the very 1st lesson in the film on gender sensitivity was! 'Don't assume a woman can't carry boxes. Offering help is offensive.'
of course, I didn't change my ways because a stupid film told me to. ...and neither will facebook or DOJ employees
