[Ed. – Why not cut through all the red tape and just declare all cops racist and arrest them en masse for what they might do.]
Genocide, forced migration, and pillaging in Sudan. Sexual slavery, child conscription, and torture in the Congo. Extrajudicial executions, rape, and pillaging in Mali.
These are some of the International Criminal Court’s active investigations.
Last Tuesday, Minnesota Attorney General and former DNC Deputy Chair Keith Ellison told MSNBC host Joy Reid that the United States should be added to this list, expressing support for an International Criminal Court investigation into the American criminal justice system for systemic racism, brutality, persecution, and inhuman acts.
You read that correctly.
Keith Ellison, the top legal and law-enforcement official for the state of Minnesota, thinks an international tribunal sitting in the Netherlands should review our American criminal justice system.
It is absolutely appalling that Ellison would suggest that American police officers and prosecutors should be investigated by any international body, let alone one that focuses on crimes against humanity, genocide, and war crimes.
