Laws governing police use of lethal force in the United States do not comply with international regulations, according to a new report released on Thursday by Amnesty International, a human rights advocacy group.
The report states,"Amnesty International reviewed US state laws—where they exist—governing the use of lethal force by law enforcement officials and found that they all fail to comply with international law and standards." The report also stated, "Many of them do not even meet the less stringent standard set by U.S. constitutional law."
The report's authors found that some U.S. laws allow police to kill "to suppress opposition to an arrest," or to "suppress a riot or mutiny." Washington, D.C. and nine states simply don't have laws governing police use of lethal force.
