UN panel raps US record on torture, police brutality "Police brutality, military interrogations and prisons were among the top concerns of a U.N. panel's report Friday that found the United States to be falling short of full compliance with an international anti-torture treaty.The report by the U.N. Committee Against Torture, its first such review of the U.S. record since 2006, expressed concerns about allegations of police brutality and excessive use of force by law enforcement officials, particularly the Chicago Police Department's treatment of blacks and Latinos. It also called for restricting the use of taser weapons by police to life-threatening situations. But it had no specific recommendation or reaction to a grand jury's decision not to indict the white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri who fatally shot a black and unarmed teenager."What gives the bloated maggot, which is the United Nations, the right to tell anyone how to live? The U.N., on its own, is a feckless, self-promoting tool of the globalists which has all the "real life" relevance and meaning of a well used litter box. They pick and choose which global emergencies with which they to deal with and 24 hours after intervention, after getting their collective butts kicked for a day, they call for the United States to bail them out. And yet they target the U.S. with their twisted ideology? C'mon! The United Nations is not our friend!We all know that the U.N. is an intergovernmental organ established 24 October 1945 to promote international co-operation and as replacement for the equally feckless and ineffective League of Nations. It was created just following WW II...supposedly to prevent another such occurrence. What is has always been...and remains...is a "Robin Hood covertly working for the Sheriff of Nottingham" sort of organ--a twisted "Kumbaya" thingy with guns and tanks.The U.N. began life...thanks to Franklin D...with the lofty, supposed objectives of maintaining international peace and security. Who wouldn't support such an organ which purported to embrace human rights, social and economical development, environmental tidiness and eschewed armed conflict, famine, natural disaster and humanitarian wretchedness.Burgeoning from an original 51 ineffective, corrupt and biased members, it now is comprised of 193 more ineffective, corrupt and biased members. The UP.NO. has won a number of humanitarian awards...notably the Nobel in 2001. Yet Obama won the Nobel for doing exactly nothing as an important force for peace human development and economic fraud. Kinda marginalizes the whole concept of Nobel's celeb, doesn't it?How many times do we hear/read about our citizens being able to deter/dispatch criminals who are trying to rob, rape and/or kill them? So tell me, folks...why does the United Nations want to disarm us? Why do Obama and his ilk want to disarm us? We have come to the realization that a pen in the hand of this president is far more dangerous than a gun in the hands of 200 Million law-abiding citizens. Couldn't the same be said of the United Nations?Jim Morris
