Shielded from justice : police brutality and accountability in the United States by Allyson Collins( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Police brutality is one of the most serious, enduring and divisive human rights violations in the United States. Unjustified shootings by police, severe beatings, fatal chokings, and unnecessarily rough treatment of detainees occur in cities throughout the country. Despite promises of reform following high-profile incidents, abusive treatment by police officers persists because systems presumably designed to hold officers accountable instead, in practice, often allow them to escape punishment of any kind
"Leave none to tell the story" : genocide in Rwanda by Alison Liebhafsky Des Forges( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and Kinyarwanda and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1994 a small elite chose genocide to keep power in Rwanda. They used state resources and authority to incite (or force) tens of thousands of Rwandans to kill the Tutsi minority. Within one hundred days, they slaughtered more than half a million people, three quarters of the Tutsi of Rwanda. The major international actors, France, the U.S., Belgium, and the U.N., failed to head the warnings of coming disaster and refused to recognize the genocide when it began. They withdrew the troops that could have saved lives and made little protest against the genocide, lest condemnation lead to calls for action. This study, based on Rwandan government records, dissects the deceptive discourse of genocide and shows how ordinary administrative structures and practices were turned into mechanisms of murder. It describes opposition to the killing campaign and how it was broken. In the words of survivors, it relates how they resisted and escaped. Using diplomatic and court documents, the study details the transformation of international indifference into tardy criticism"--Back cover

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report finds significant shortcomings in the U.S. record, from the summary repatriation of Haitian boat people to the brutal treatment of prisoners. In these and other cases, the ICCR may offer greater protection against rights abuses than current interpretation U.S. law. The ACLU and Human Rights Watch call on the Clinton administration to take steps to correct these abuses and make it possible to invoke the protections of the covenant in U.S. court case

No escape : male rape in U.S. prisons by Joanne Mariner( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With one out of every 140 people in the United States behind bars, the question of prisoner-on-prisoner sexual abuse can no longer be ignored. Male rape in prison can be vicious and brutal . Some of its victims contract HIV; all suffer psychological harm. Rape is not an inevitable consequence of prison life, but it is a predictable one if little is done to prevent and punish it. With this report, Human Right Watch calls upon federal and state authorities to address this serious nationwide problem
