US is guilty of Crimes against Humanity says New Report

    A group of legal experts says the US is guilty of crimes against humanity and major violations of international law after a spate of incidents where black people were killed at the hands of police.

    “The commissioners find a prima facie case of crimes against humanity warranting an investigation by the International Criminal Court. The crimes under the Rome Statute include murder, severe deprivation of physical liberty, torture, persecution of people of African descent, and other inhumane acts, which occurred in the context of a widespread or systematic attack directed against the civilian population of black people in the USA,” the report says.

    “There were violations of the state’s duty to provide medical care to detained persons to ensure investigations of extra-judicial killings that are independent, competent, thorough and effective.

    “The commissioners find that USA laws and police practices do not comply with the international standards on the use of force, which require legal basis, legitimate objective, necessity, precautions, proportionality, protection of life, non-discrimination, and accountability.”

    This report helps bring into focus what is actually happening in the US. There are hundreds of George Floyds killed every year. It's a very sad situation. It's up to ordinary people to call out racism and police brutality.

    Report by some ad-hoc group reported by nonsense news site shocker.

    It's not US government policy to have their police kill black people.. The "commissioners" aren't actual commissioners.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.
