Justice has become a weapon in the hands of the government in the United States, says an analyst in a column written for Press TV.
Paul Craig Roberts wrote in an article for Press TV, “American injustice has actually managed to completely destroy the achievements dating from Magna Carta that made law a shield of the people instead of a weapon in the hands of the state.”
The comments come as the United States prepares to celebrate next month the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, the famous charter of human rights in history and the basis of the US Constitution.
Roberts described the “American injustice” as “unique” and drew a parallel between today’s US and “pre-Magna Carta England.”
Roberts said he and his colleague, Lawrence Stratton, have authored a book “documenting the destruction of the achievement of liberty and the accountability of government to law.”
Noting that “oppression is rampant” in the United States, he said the US law no longer seeks to establish “justice” and no longer feels “accountable to law.”
The analyst expressed regret that majority of Americans are unaware that they are “stripped of constitutional protections and that they are propagandized into supporting the evil actions of an unaccountable government.”
Roberts added that the United States has “the largest absolute number of prison inmates” in the world due to the “death of Justice” in the country.
“False arrests…are common in the US. Indeed, they are more common than justified arrests. The police and the courts are completely corrupted institutions that reek of injustice and evil,” he wrote.
