This review was made public on May 11, 2015 by the United Nations Human Rights Commission. At first glance, it looks very dull, but pay close attention to the questions being asked by other countries (“Questions submitted in advance” and the addendum) as it pertains to Human Rights violations in the United States.
My question is this ….
When do we the people stand up and say enough is enough with regards to things like the brutal mistreatment of the mentally ill in jails and prisons, or racial issues or whatever other example of a human rights issue you may have in mind? How many lives need to be lost?
