Soon to be cited by the US Supreme Court
In 1994, Napoleon Beazley committed a brutal murder. He was 17 at the time. But he performed the deed in Texas. Big mistake. He was executed for his crime in 2002. Most Americans would call this tragic. But most would also call it justice. The self-important Inter-American Commission on Human Rights wants us to think it is a violation of international law. Which is another way of saying that they just don't like it.
When will our leaders admit that "international law" (other than the black letter of treaties to which we are signatory) is not really "law" at all?
