U.N. says suspected rights abuses after deadly gunfight 'troubling'

The United Nations said on Thursday it was deeply concerned that Mexican security forces may have violated human rights in responding to a gun battle near the seaside resort of Acapulco in which 11 people were killed. The Mexican office of the U.N. High Commission for Human Rights said it obtained documentation of torture, fabricated evidence, poor detention conditions and searches conducted without warrants after the shootout on Sunday. "The U.N. has strong convictions about the existence of human rights violations committed by security forces during the operation, which are profoundly troubling," the office said in a statement. 12-01-18

Should the use of marijuana be legalised federally? Which means everywhere across the U.S. it would be legal to sell/tax and own it.? Outlaw gasoline instead.. smoking it is deadly hazardous to your health, pot isn't deadly.. nobody has ever overdosed on marijuana. Drugs like heroin, that can be deadly, should be controlled. Re: smoking gasoline.. there's some pretty stupid people in the world. Actually, alcohol can be deadly, and often is. Marijuana is not deadly, in any shape, fashion or form.. It's all about the money.

Which one of Rachel Maddow's many lies do you find the most troubling, or is the fact that people actually believe him even more troubling?
Can a normal belt be seen as a deadly weapon when discussing assult? could be. Laws are different in every state and nation. In my state, if it is used in a deadly fashion, then it can be a deadly weapon. If it is used to create some mechanical advantage, but not deadly, then it could be seen as a non-deadly weapon.
Why are the FRENCH police using tear gas on football fans but not in the violent criminals camped out in Calais? Security has been beefed up for the tournament so they're overreacting at the slightest sign of trouble, everyone is tense and on edge. Plus they know football fans probably aren't going to run to the ECHR and complain about human rights abuses.
According to Schafley, what is the “fraud of the equal rights amendment”? Groups don't have rights. Individuals have rights. There is no such thing as gay rights, women's rights, men's rights, etc. You have rights by virtue of being born. Getting a marriage license or government money means you have been co-opted into privilege. If you qualify the noun "right" with an adjective like "gay," then you're saying it's not a right for everyone. You're then specifying a right for one particular group, as in only gays have these rights. If you're claiming equality, then your adjective qualifier would be "human." As in, human rights.

Don't bring a knife to a gunfight I need a "softer" analogy that means the same thing as "Don't bring a knife to a gunfight" or "It's like bringing a knife to a gunfight".
Origin of "knife to a gunfight" quote I hope this question isn't too tirivial, but in The Punisher Harry Heck says to Frank You are one dumb son of a bitch. Bringing a knife to a gunfight. right before Frank kills him making said knife shoot out from the shaft. I always understood this quote as a reference to The Untouchables , when Malone (having a gun in hand) says to some thug trying to stab him Isn't that just like a wop? Brings a knife to a gun fight. Just before running into a trap and being gunned down. So first of all is there any source that this is indeed intended as a reference to The Untouchables or is it just me drawing a connection where there is none (though the quotes are really similar). And furthermore, is the quote from The Untouchables maybe in turn a reference to another (maybe more famous) older movie/story (to which The Punisher maybe actually refers, too)?
In a gunfight, does the person who draws first usually lose? In western movies, it is a common trope that the person to draw first usually loses in a gunfight. Is there any truth to this?

Why was the Irish so troubling during World War 1? (I'm not entirely certain what you meant to ask. I'm going to assume you were talking about US citizens and residents of Irish descent. If that's not right, ask again, but be more specific.) Many of those with Irish ancestry living in the US were very unhappy about Britain's treatment of Ireland, and did not want the US to enter the war on the British side. This is one of the reasons the US stayed neutral as long as it did. Americans of Irish descent (especially those born in Ireland) called the British "The Lobsterbacks" and despised them. Irish Americans were shocked when they eventually fo
