Each of the 50 United States has failed to comply with international standards on police use of lethal force, a reality that threatens lives, poses grave human rights concerns, perpetuates institutional racism, and requires immediate reform, a new report by Amnesty International published Thursday has found.
None of the states’ “use of lethal force” statutes include accountability mechanisms.
Need we say more.
Also amazing--the US trains public safety agencies in conflict zones and during peace keeping operations, as though they were the end-all of quality policing. Clean up your own kitchen first!
It is all about fear, societies fear, property owners fear and the police acting out of fear. We have become a nation full of fear.
Hey as long as abortion is illegal, then these killers have a card to wave declaring how prolife they are! "Oh look I'm against abortion, see, I'm not SO bad..." Absolutely preposterous! I'm not so easily fooled. They are still killers!
I don't think that holds up. My guess is that a solid majority of those who engage in gun culture are solid supporters of heavy militarized police depts. My guess is that a solid majority of those who engage in gun culture also are solid supporters of every f'ng war that US foreign policy ejaculates on the World.
