ACLU Asks UN Human Rights Council to Investigate U.S. Police
The ACLU, in conjunction with the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile, and Michael Brown, sent a letter to the UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Council). The letter claimed that not only are black people being murdered at the hands of police, but that protesting is being “repressed,” so an investigation is requested. (Breitbart)
(Venezuela is on the UNHRC by the way- they do know about “repression.”) The Commisioner of the UN Human Rights Council issued a statement that urged action against police officers that commit violence against unarmed black persons. As of this writing, they had not responded to the ACLU letter.
#DemCast has joined the coalition of families and organizations demanding the U.N. to investigate these human rights violations.

Demcast wrote about the letter:
“In an unprecedented move, the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, and Philando Castile, together with over 600 rights groups led by the American Civil Liberties Union and U.S. Human Rights Network, are demanding the United Nations Human Rights Council swiftly convene a special session to investigate the escalating situation of police violence and repression of protests in the United States. Additional signatories include Black Lives Matter and the NAACP.
“Mamie Till Mobley made a decision to open the casket of her son Emmett Till so the world could see the atrocities Black people faced in America. I want people across the world and the leaders in the United Nations to see the video of my brother George Floyd, to listen to his cry for help, and I want them to answer his cry,” said Philonise Floyd, brother of George Floyd. “I appeal to the United Nations to help him. Help me. Help us. Help Black men and women in America.”
The groups warn of an “unfolding grave human rights crisis” in the United States and write that the recent police killings of unarmed Black people as well as police use of excessive force and repression of protests violate United States obligations under international law. They call on the U.N. to mandate an independent inquiry into the killings and violent law enforcement responses to protests, including the attacks against protesters and journalists. The letter also calls for a U.N. investigation into the firing of tear gas by President Trump in violation of international standards on the use of force.”
Here we have an “unprecedented” lie being perpetuated upon not just the United States, but now the world. Protests have not been “repressed” in the United States – evidenced by the damage that factions within the protests have caused. Peaceful protests are an important Constitutional guarantee, but taking every opportunity to politicize them is ridiculous.
George Floyd was not a martyr – he was a victim of someone that shouldn’t have been an officer in the first place. He had drugs in his system, which indicated he was sliding backwards from his hope for a new start. Should he have died? Not in any way shape or form. Should he have had a second chance? Absolutely – everyone deserves one. But there is an agenda here that the media and liberals refuse to even examine.
What is the end game? The UN is rigid on gun control, that’s one goal, since we are the only country to have a second amendment.
“This is the latest in a long line of killings of unarmed African Americans by US police officers and members of the public. I am dismayed to have to add George Floyd’s name to that of Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and many other unarmed African Americans who have died over the years at the hands of the police — as well as people such as Ahmaud Arbery and Trayvon Martin who were killed by armed members of the public.” Michelle Batchelet. UNHRC Commissioner
Another goal is to attempt to humiliate the President and destroy the ability of the US to influence world actions. They have been doing the exact same thing regarding Israel now for some time, by claiming widespread discrimination and murder. Since liberals and other countries are clueless about the real facts, the agenda appears to be working quite well.
