China hits back on U.S. human rights record

hcs_$reboot (1536101) writes | about a year ago


hcs_$reboot (1536101) writes "The Xinhua news agency reports that the China's State Council, in response to the "Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2012" issued by the U.S. State Department, published in turn his own report on "The Human Rights Record of the United States", arguing that "the U.S. turned a blind eye to its own woeful human rights situation".
Notably, the report mentions "Closer surveillance of citizens", "More violent crimes involving guns", "Money wars in politics", "Growing gap between the rich and poor", "Violating human rights in other nations"."

What No Mention of PYITA Prison? (1)

Jah-Wren Ryel (80510) | about a year ago | (#43513687)

Of all the bad things the US government does to its own people, the prison system is the most egregious by far. Sure pervasive surveillance is going to have some serious long-term effects, but right now prison rape causes orders of magnitude more suffering and social destruction than anything else. And this "human rights" report doesn't even mention it? Weak sauce china, weak sauce.

A "privilege" reserved for "tough guys" (0)

A lot of "tough guys" outside the prison turn into somebody else' "bitch" when they ended inside

It's a privilege reserved especially for those "tough guys"
