U.N. Urges U.S. to End Criminal Justice Disparities

The United Nations Committee the Elimination of Racial Discrimination recently released a report acknowledged the disproportionate number of minorities involved in the criminal justice system as well as the racially disproportionate enforcement of the death penalty.

From the report, via Jurist,

It recommended that the United States allocate sufficient resources to ensure legal representation of indigent persons belonging to racial, ethnic and national minorities in civil proceedings. Moreover, the United States should increase significantly its efforts to eliminate police brutality and excessive use of force against persons belonging to racial, ethnic or national minorities, and also increase efforts to prevent and punish violence and abuse against women belonging to racial, ethnic and national minorities.

Just who does this United Nations think it is?

Can they talk to us like that?
