NILENET - A United Nations official criticized the US justice system’s treatment of African Americans after a Ferguson grand jury failed to indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein blasted the US for the number of young African Americans killed by police officers and the incarceration rate for African Americans, Daily Caller reported. He also suggested Americans’ Second amendment rights led to police killings. “It is clear that, at least among some sectors of the population, there is a deep and festering lack of confidence in the fairness of the justice and law enforcement systems,” Zeid said in a statement. Zeid also pointed the recent case of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old African American boy fatally shot by police in Cleveland, Ohio while carrying a BB gun. “In many countries, where real guns are not so easily available, police tend to view boys playing with replica guns as precisely what they are, rather than as a danger to be neutralized,” Zeid said. Michael Brown’s parents addressed the Committee against Torture earlier this month. Zeid stressed the importance of law enforcement complying with International law when using their weapon.
