    U.S. authorities need to build trust on race issues: U.N. rights chief

    GENEVA (Reuters) - U.S. authorities need to tackle a "deep and festering" mistrust in some sectors of the population and examine how race relations affect law enforcement, the U.N.'s human rights chief said on Tuesday.

    About a dozen buildings in surburban Ferguson, Missouri, burned overnight and police fired tear gas at protesters angry that a grand jury had cleared police officer Darren Wilson in the Aug. 9 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

    Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein at the United Nations said he was "deeply concerned at the disproportionate number of young African Americans who die in encounters with police officers, as well as the disproportionate number of African Americans in U.S. prisons and the disproportionate number of African Americans on Death Row."

    Under U.N. rules, police officers may only resort to intentional lethal use of firearms when strictly unavoidable to protect life, Zeid said in a statement, while protesters have no right to cause harm even if they disagreed with the verdict.

    He added: "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."

    Maybe he should visit the south side of Chicago to help him understand.

    if it was only possible i'd like to see the UN delegates sucking each other's dick's then die(only exempt countries are israel and the US). i don't give a shit about the rest of this shithole known as earth. the money we spend on that useless organization should be stopped immediately.
    it's a snakepit of useless, smug people from countries that shouldn't even be allowed to be part of it, and it should be thrown out of my country!

    Jordan? How are Christians and gays treated there? Try being a Christian and proselytizing there and see how far you get. Women are still second class citizens. Their jails aren't exactly humane either. Jordan may be more tolerant than other Muslim countries, but it still comes up far short of the West on human rights. To have a dictator tell the USA that we need to work on race relations is more than the pot calling the kettle black.

    The most powerful microscope that will ever exist won't be strong enough to see how little I care what the U.N. thinks about anything.
