GENEVA — A top United Nations' rights official said the United States was in breach of international law over the execution of a 38-year-old Mexican citizen in Texas.

U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said Friday the Texas execution of Humberto Garcia Leal "raises particular legal concerns," including whether he had access to consular services and a fair trial.

Me :star:

Some posters on here care about the UN and international law and public opinion only when it affects far-away MidEastern countries that are beyond their local concern.

When it comes to the US they're happy to piss vinegar over such niceties with a cavalier "who cares?".

BTW: There are only treaties between nations. This is no international law. There is no "world" government.

But you can sure use it to scare other paranoid Americans as to the dangers of having us cooperate with other nations in international agreements that hold themselves to legal standards and are punishable when violated.

I'm a big boy. You can make it personal if you want.

I need a beer after trying to understand that post. I think I need to get in the same mindset.

No, there isn't. But there is a Constitution which reads in Article VI.

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

But hey, why worry about what the Constitution says, eh? Texas surely ain't bound by it.
