The fatal shooting of Michael Brown at the hands of Officer Darren WIlson on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Mo. has shed an international spotlight on America’s treatment of its citizens in the eyes of the justice system.
“The US is indeed a country wantonly violating human rights where people are subject to discrimination and humiliation due to their race, and are in constant fear that they may get shot at any moment,” said a spokesman for the country’s foreign ministry. “It should not seek solutions to its problems in suppressing demonstrators, but bring to light the real picture of the American society, a graveyard of human rights, and have a correct understanding of what genuine human rights are like and how they should be guaranteed.”
Following the grand jury’s announcement Monday (Nov. 24), nationwide protests in cities like New York, Chicago, and back to the St. Louis suburb were launched throughout the night.
