    Breaking: Iran’s top rights official slams US police brutality, justice system

    The secretary of the Iranian Judiciary’s High Council for Human Rights has denounced police brutality in the US, primarily targeting African Americans, asking whether justice has been served with regard to any of the high-profile killings.

    “The US police didn’t kill American citizens in just 18 days of 2020,” Ali Baqeri-Kani wrote in a tweet on Monday. “George Floyd was only one of 1127 victims of police brutality.”

    “How many murderers of these victims have been tried and convicted in a fair court?” he asked rhetorically.

    According to Press TV, Baqeri-Kani said it is no surprise that even the court of trial for the murderer of George Floyd could not prevent the murder of Daunte Wright and others.

    The tweet came more than a week after Wright, a 20-year-old father of one, was shot and killed by a single bullet fired by a white police officer in the city suburb of Brooklyn Center.

    The killing, which triggered a wave of protests in Minneapolis, is at least the third high-profile death of a Black man during a police encounter in the city over the past five years.

    The murder occurred almost a year after Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, died when Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin placed his knee on his neck as he pleaded, “I can’t breathe.”

    Floyd’s murder sparked worldwide condemnation when footage of the moments leading to his death circulated around the world.
