How do they violate human rights in the USA? (United Nations Radio, USA)


The death penalty, racial discrimination, cruel treatment of prisoners, the prison in Guantanamo, where prisoners are held without open trial and investigation. This is an incomplete list of questions that interested members of the UN Human Rights Council during the consideration of a periodic US review report. The United States was reminded that most of the recommendations given by the United States after reviewing the first report in 2010, remained on paper. Details in the material Nargis Shekinskoy.

The list of claims against the United States in the field of human rights turned out to be quite long. However, the American delegation was ready for criticism. Says US Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Council Kate Harper:

“We believe that it is useful for any people to look at themselves in the mirror. There are problems in every country, and serious preparation for a periodic review report to the Human Rights Council allows it to move forward on their solution. ”

Representatives of delegations from dozens of countries around the world, including those that the US State Department regularly accuses of violating democratic freedoms, have been given an opportunity to speak. Actively were China, Kazakhstan, Chad and others. The Russian side voiced a critical list of 9 items:

“It is with regret that we note that the authorities clearly expressed insufficient attention to the recommendations made during the review of the last review report. We also state that the situation with human rights in the country in recent years has seriously deteriorated. The US government needs to take urgent measures to remedy the situation. "

Among other things, Russia recommended the United States to stop the extrajudicial executions of foreigners using “drones” and to “investigate all cases of ill-treatment of adopted children.” Both topics were left without comment by the Americans. But the US delegation was prepared for questions about police arbitrariness, which could hardly have been avoided, given news background. In recent months, law enforcement officials have led to the deaths of black Americans in the states of Maryland, Missouri and New York. US Department of Justice spokesman James Cadogan said that America has been consistently fighting police abuses:

“Over the past six years, the authorities have brought 400 law enforcement officials to justice. When systemic problems arise, the Justice Ministry investigates and amends the existing practice. So, in March of this year, we released a report that says about the discriminatory approach of the police in Ferguson, Missouri. ”

A lot of criticism has caused the death penalty. According to Amnesty International, the United States ranks fifth in the world after China, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Iraq. The representative of the Ministry of Justice, David Bitcover, justified positive statistics in the justification: the number of death sentences carried out reached the lowest figures for the last 20 years:

“After our first review report, three states abolished the death penalty. And although this preventive measure is still in effect in the 33 states and is permitted by the federal government, only seven states executed prisoners last year. A total of 35 death sentences were carried out. ”

The prison at the military base in Guantanamo has been at the center of attention of human rights defenders for many years. Even during the first presidential campaign, Barack Obama promised to close it, and having moved to the White House, he signed the corresponding decree. In practice, this was not so easy to do - there is no place to transfer prisoners. As a result of years of effort, their number was reduced only twice - they now contain 122 people. With regard to torture, the current administration is also on the side of the international community. Says State Department spokeswoman Mary MacLeod:

“We crossed the line, we acted in conflict with our own values, and we take responsibility for it. We have already taken measures that will once again reaffirm our commitment to the principle that the ban on torture applies to all countries and does not depend on the circumstances. ”

Human rights defenders, however, demand bringing to justice those who ordered torture in violation of American laws. But this administration is not solved. The issue of ratification of key international agreements in the field of human rights is not resolved either. His decision, as noted by representatives of the US administration, depends on the legislative branch of government.

      The hysteria that began after the classic cross-shooter organized by the CIA is not like raising vigilance. Rather, it is a panic horror when those fleeing from a sinking ship, not realizing what they are doing, begin to chop boats into rafts.

      And further. I have always been interested in the question - we have abolished the death penalty for the sake of some Europe, and the "cradle of democracy", "the defender of freedom and human rights throughout the world" hangs, kills with electric current, poison with injections. What is it like? Humanely?

      By the way, I didn’t come up with it - their "founding father" ...

      Do not talk nonsense, dear! What democracy died in 2001? What nonsense! Beautiful words - democracy - for the divorce of the gullible and incapable of thinking!

      a lot of people are asking for a reference - about life in the USA, I’ll probably post the address, but be careful, there isn’t normative vocabulary and also .. the moment of tolerance is somehow bypassed ...

      This link is for you who firmly believe in some kind of democracy and the values ​​of the West!

        Plus, Bombardier. There is no democracy in nature. As for the pin. Dostan, the most non-free (I’m not democratic, I’m not writing) country, who doubts this, visit it. See for yourself.

        Impulsively, but absolutely everything about the case.

        About American Medicine. The son of friends lives in Matrasia, in San Antonio. I went to remove a bad tooth - 1800 raccoons! For that kind of money, they will sew a new liver, and they pulled out a tooth. Children from the hospital are first fed antidepressants so that reflexes work, because American women have not given birth to healthy children for a long time (I am talking about the so-called "American women", WASP, and not about Latino negroids), and then, at school, handfuls of sedatives are poured into them because they sit up and bounce from chronic overexcitement and are unable to learn. And if this is just beginning in our country, thanks to democracy, then it has been happening with them for about 50 years.

      Execution is not a measure of restraint, but a punishment determined by a court. America is breaking records for the number of prisoners, the death penalty and the innocent executed. Every month 35-40 citizens die from police brutality. This is the "real democracy", which they forcefully spread throughout the world.

    Yes, I really tremble at the thought of my country, it is worthwhile only for me to think that the Lord God is just and will give her due.

    American police are ready to shoot to kill everywhere and always. Any insubordination to their orders threatens to be shot on the spot. For example, in Chicago, an 95-year-old man was shot dead in a nursing home and refused to take medicine. Along with the police, he began to threaten with a cane and was shot.
    About this 3 August 2013, the newspaper Chicago Tribune.
    "When John was a young man, healthy and strong, who fought in the Second World War with the US Air Force, how could he have thought how his life would end," the newspaper writes.
    The 95, a veteran who could hardly walk, was killed in a nursing home by police.
    The old man refused to take medicine on his ill-fated day. The health workers called a police officer to persuade him to take medicine. According to the police, the stubborn veteran threatened them with his cane and was also armed with a metal spoon for shoes. The guards of order have no other choice but to shoot him in the stomach with a rubber bullet. From the received wound John died.
    "The Japanese were unable to kill him during the war. But their work was done by the American police after 70 years," the newspaper quotes the veteran's angry relatives.
    The Illinois State Police Department has announced that it is investigating this incident.
    In its defense, the police declares that the old man, besides a cane and a spoon, was armed with a kitchen knife, but their words are refuted by the administration of the nursing home.

    US policy, both foreign and domestic, is aggressive. It is useless to call states to humanism. US political elites have long made the choice to establish a world dictatorship. It was the United States that first buried the democracy they promote, human rights, freedom of speech, international law, and allow themselves to bypass the UN resolution

    The USA is a country of terrorists who once declared their independence and fought against England for their freedom. This is the only country that has recently used slaves on the widest scale. This is, finally, a country that, hiding behind democracy, is terrorizing the whole world. Today, the United States hates so many people on the globe that it (without options) will soon come kirdyk. Democracy is the most deceitful form of state power! It is ruled by the one who grabbed more money by walking on people's heads and robbing them of their honestly earned money! Democracy is the power of thieves and crooks!
