Xinhua: Chinese State Council Released 2015 U.S. Human Rights Records

Xinhua reported that the Chinese State Council Information Office recently released the report called, "The 2015 U.S. Human Rights Records" and another report titled, "The 2015 U.S. Human Rights Violations." These reports are in response to the U.S. State Department’s 2015 World Human Rights Report released one day earlier. The Chinese reports accused the U.S. report of distorting the reality about human rights in other countries. The Chinese reports also suggested that the U.S. government has lost control of gun regulation, which significantly threatens the lives of U.S. citizens. The U.S. police system widely abuses its power and causes loss of innocent lives. The reports also claim that the U.S. prisons suffer from widespread corruption that severely violates the human rights of the prisoners. Also in the reports, the U.S. citizens’ political rights have not been protected effectively due to the popularity of “money-driven politics and family-driven politics.” The reports listed a great deal of evidence that the U.S. government violates the basic rights of women and children. At the same time, the U.S. continues to violate the sovereignty of many other countries and the human rights of the people in those countries.
