UN rights chief calls for Trayvon Martin probe
AFP ^ | April 5, 2012

Posted on 04/05/2012 4:53:39 PM PDT by maggief

BRIDGETOWN (AFP) - UN rights chief Navi Pillay on Thursday called for an "immediate investigation" into the circumstances surrounding the February death of an unarmed black US teen, shot by a neighborhood watchman.

Pillay made the comments about the controversial Trayvon Martin case at a press conference in Barbados, as she wrapped up a three-day visit to the Caribbean island nation.

"As High Commissioner for Human Rights, I call for an immediate investigation," Pillay told reporters.

"Justice must be done for the victim. It's not just this individual case. It calls into question the delivery of justice in all situations like this."

(snip)

"The law should operate equally in respect of all violations. I will be awaiting an investigation and prosecution and trial and of course reparations for the victims concerned," Pillay said.

Yeah, the UN is appalled at the concept of a private citizen using a handgun for self-defense.

Pillay needs to take her goatsmellin’ @$$ back to whatever sewer she crawled out of and stay out of our business. She is not an American and we don’t care what she thinks. If we want any crap out of her, we’ll unscrew her head and dip it out.

We’ll conduct such an investigation right after there’s an investigation of UN “peacekeeping” troops in Africa raping just about every civilian woman they come in contact with.

actually Obama is a dictator and doesn't want the UN or anyone else running the U.S. However Obama welcomes UN interference when it can help him get power. Obama views the UN as useful idiots to be discarded later when they get in the way. Just like the communists viewed intellectuals as useful idiots.

Thanks to our whitey hating president and DOJ head, we are currently in a cold war based upon race.

Given how much fuel the POS in the White Hut has poured on the last embers of racial hatred it is not going to take much of a spark to ignite a hot race war.

I’d say that the “persons of color” side went hot decades ago. The only thing keeping it from igniting into the real thing, is the sustained restraint, civility and GROSSLY misplaced guilt of whites.

But, tick...tick...tick.....

EVERY BLACK PERSON that has had a relative killed should be really pizzed at this ‘special’ person getting all the attention. Did their dead relative not matter?

They ought to look deep into the actions of this administration and realize they are BEING USED BIG TIME! They’ll be thrown overboard like everyone else, whose usefulness has worn off.

The UN getting involved should scare the hell out of all races.

Zimmerman is being used as a pinata.

What about his rights?

I have never seen anything like this in my very long life.This administration is pure evil.

I used to laugh when people said,”Be afraid,be very afraid”. No more.

First off Trayvon’s parents need investigated for how badly they raised their child. From what understand he was no saint. After she investigates that then she can open her mouth but until then she should STFU. She can talk all she wants but it is meaningless. The UN has no jurisdiction in any manner in this country and the first person that says they do should tried and hung as a traitor.

Her bio says that she is an “South African of Indian Decent.” Wow, coming from that hell hole, I don’t think she has any room to talk.

The “unarmed black teen” who had just noticed that his victim had a gun and was attempting to grab it and shoot him with it. If Trayvon had won the struggle, no one outside the Orlando area would have heard about the shooting and even the local media would have dropped the story after a few days.

I contend that justice was done for the victim.

I contend that the victim is Zimmerman. His whole life is upside down because of a kangaroo press and the rabid left. Poor guy.
