    UN pushing for changes to gun/self defense laws....

    The UN is pushing the federal government to conclude it investigation into George Zimmerman and to review our firearm and self defense laws, assuming that they are discriminatory against African Americans. Here is the UN Press release:

    3 September 2013 – A group of United Nations independent experts today called on the Government of the United States to finalize the ongoing review of the case involving the death of teenager Trayvon Martin, an African –American teenager who was shot in 2012 by a neighbourhood watchman in the state of Florida.

    “We call upon the US Government to examine its laws that could have discriminatory impact on African Americans, and to ensure that such laws are in full compliance with the country’s international legal obligations and relevant standards,” said human rights expert Verene Shepherd, who currently heads the UN Working Group of Experts of People of African Descent.

    The death of Trayvon Martin sparked a new debate about racial profiling in the United States after the unarmed black 17-year-old was shot and killed in Florida by George Zimmerman, a neighbourhood watchman. Mr. Zimmerman, who argued that he acted in self-defence and with justifiable use of deadly force, was found not guilty of all charges against him.

    The US Department of Justice, the US Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are currently evaluating the evidence generated during the federal investigation, as well as the evidence and testimony from the state trial, trying to establish potential civil rights charges linked to the case.

    “The Trayvon Martin case has highlighted the importance of the need to review those existing laws and policies that can have a discriminatory effect on the basis of race, as African Americans become more vulnerable to such discrimination,” Ms. Shepherd said, recalling that the US has been party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights since 1992, the International Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination since 1994, and many other international human rights law treaties.

    “States are required to take effective measures to review governmental, national and local policies, and to amend, rescind or nullify any laws and regulations which have the effect of creating or perpetuating racial discrimination wherever it exists,” said the Special Rapporteur on racism, Mutuma Ruteere.

    According to the 2011 US Department of Justice Hate Crime Statistics, 71.9 per cent of the total number of victims of hate crimes reported to the nation’s law enforcement agencies were victims of an offender’s anti-black bias. In a 2012 survey, the local non-governmental organization Malcolm X Grassroots Movement found that at least 136 unarmed African Americans were killed by police, security guards and self-appointed vigilantes over the course of a single year. (emphasis added)
    Did you catch that? The UN is using the Zimmerman case to ORDER us to change our laws to conform with UN policies - forget that no other nation enforces these policies.

    The U.N. is a fetid swamp of self-righteous and self-congratulatory statists, perpetual enemies of liberty and man, who daily turn a blind eye to the true evils running rampant through the world while wagging their fingers at us. It is a sick parody of virtue. Its costs are great, its accomplishments...well I can't think of any just now.

    How about this for racial discrimination United Nations:

    More black on black violent crime happens than with other races. Should we then encourage the other races to pick up the pace in order for their not to be a disparity????

    Maybe it would have been better if Trayvon hadn't been black when he jumped another minority who defended himself. Hmmm, yeah, that must mean we need to amend something in a law book somewhere.

    WTF???????

    While we are on the topic of UN statists run amok, I thought I would take advantage of the moment and insert in here a reference to some of the tax breaks that the US government is currently giving the UN:

    Back in mid-January of 2013, as the UN's ITU crept closer to another one of its web censorship conventions (which was known as WTPF13), some information began to become available about U.S. activists (including those who were vocal opponents of the UN) with no income and no tax liability being sent warning letters by the IRS under a "withholding compliance program" -- which stood in marked contrast to the UN, with its vast sums of money, which was (and still is) receiving lavish treatment from the US government due in part to the UN ITU employees' EXEMPT status from federal tax withholding!

    (As you now undoubtedly are aware, a lot of revelations later came out about the US IRS's abuse of discretion and its targeting of certain groups and persons.)

    Though there is no law to support this, the U.S. IRS threatens many low and no-income persons (especially if their point of view opposes certain perspectives of the current US administration or the UN), all the while exempting the UN's ITU from taxation.
    You can research more about "international" organizations including ITU exempted from US federal tax withholding, at:
    Internal Revenue Manual - 5.19.11 Withholding Compliance Program (Cont. 1)
    Keyword search in that doc, "Exhibit 5.19.11-13" (which is "International Organizations Exempt from Federal Withholding Requirements,") you'll find the International Telecommunication Union which is the UN ITU -- you'll also note the "Multinational Force and Observers" (part of the UN) are in the list along with "Israel-United States Binational Industrial Research and Development Foundation" (someone please explain to me why we ever gave them any tax break?).
    And some bankster organizations... and some other interesting things.
    Pretty sad that we give so much of a tax break to an organization (UN) that is bent on attacking MANY of our Constitutional rights.
    Anyway, just thought I'd point that out.

    Could not say it better than JCliff unless I added a series of expletives that would not get printed on the forum. These "diplomats" walk around in NYC as some kind of "god kings" and ignore every basic civil and literally legal law on the books, claiming diplomatic immunity--they are well dressed cockroaches.
