    U.S. broke international law by executing Mexican national, says U.N. - CNN.com

    This one sort of slid by with all the hoopla about other things. But when I first read about this in the news, I REALLY thought Texas would hold up a little while to let this get worked out.

    I realize there is most likely a message they wanted to send to their next door neighbor, but is this really the way?

    I see plenty of Mexicans HERE that disregard OUR laws (and American lives). I think the UN needs to help stop Mexico from abusing American nationals and our border.... So, if and when the UN has a balanced view of the world and does something to help stop the illegal aliens here, perhaps We Americans would take them (the UN) seriously. What "message" is Mexico trying to send us?

    I couldn't care less what the U.N. claims to think about Texas executing a scumbag murderer after all those years of due process rights.

    Fuck the U.N. We should withdraw from that failed utopian bullshit organization.

    How is proper State Action -- complete with the providing of elaborate due process -- to even an illegal alien murderer going to "cost" Americans their lives?

    Do you think that American prisoners being held abroad will fare better because of this?

    For fucking give me. but I think this has been hashed out for years. The SCOTUS said Texas has every right to execute the man. UN and international law to not supersede our constitutional law. End of story.
