Amnesty: US guilty of Katrina-related abuses

Cain Burdeau Associated Press Writer

Amnesty International says the U.S. government and Gulf Coast states have consistently violated the human rights of hurricane victims since Hurricane Katrina killed about 1,800 people and caused widespread devastation after striking in August 2005.

Amnesty’s report entitled “Un-Natural Disaster” says government actions in housing, health care and policing prevented poor minority communities from rebuilding and returning to their homes.

The White House and Louisiana and Mississippi officials said they had gone to great lengths to help people recover from Katrina.

Amnesty urged Congress to amend the nation’s main disaster response legislation, the Stafford Act, to guarantee the humane and fair treatment of all disaster victims.

Vermin!

Posted by terres on June 28, 2008

Where is Amnesty International and all other so-called human rights [sic] organizations when people really need them?

Vermin” was how Mr Charles Falwasser’s, the father of NZ police brutality victim, called the four police officers who repeatedly assaulted his defenseless teenage son with batons and pepper spray in a police cell.

“Delighted” was how the thugs’ racist lawyer Susan Hughes, QC, described the feeling of her depraved clients. “There was only ever going to be one verdict and this was it,” she said.

It proves we live in a black-and-white world,” said, Kihi, mother of the victim, as she condemned the racist justice system: “We are absolutely shocked and devastated by the decision but we’re not surprised. We had a white jury in there.”

“Murderers” and “Pigs,” were how the victim’s brother, Tawhiao, described the racist scumbags.

Tawera Falwasser said when he visited the police station and asked how his brother’s head had been split, the answer from a smiling Senior Constable Bruce Laing was “with a baton.” [That demands a punishment with a baton!]

The victim, Mr Falwasser, said he feared for his life and wrote “Jesus” in his blood on the cell walls to attract attention.

He suffered a five-centimeter gash on his head, a 6½-centimeter cut on his arm and bruising on his arms and legs from batons. He now suffered from post-traumatic stress.

The racist judge, Patrick Treston, declined media applications to publish police station CCTV footage of the assault. (Source)
