As George Bush made his appearance and speech today at the United Nations in NYC, 1,000 people issued a citizen’s arrest warrant against him for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The idea of citizen’s arrest has its roots in common law, and allows for any citizen to execute an arrest on someone who they witness committing a felony offense. All states in the United States allow for citizen’s arrest, except for North Carolina, which follows different statutes. Those undertaking a citizen’s arrest can still be held liable in civil or criminal court for any damages they inflict in the process. However, they have full rights to detain and arrest a suspect who they witness in commission of a felony.
Applicable felonies in this case include, but are not limited to: treason, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, conspiracy to obstruct justice, perjury, conspiracy malfeasance in office, fraud, embezzlement, and kidnapping.
Under established international and military law, also, the commission of war crimes and crimes against humanity, for which, as commander in chief, Bush bears command responsibility for the actions of those under his command as well as for his own policies.
Under the principles of the Nuremburg Trials at the end of World War Two, Bush would be indictable for all four counts established back then:
1. Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of crime against peace;
2. Planning, initiating and waging wars of aggression and other crimes against peace;
3. War crimes;
4. Crimes against humanity.
While the efforts of citizens today to serve an arrest warrant on Bush failed, be advised: the warrant stands. Please do you duty, and try at every opportunity to bring this criminal to justice.
Freaking brilliant. Nothing will ever come of it, though. But I applaud your efforts!
