Default Report on human rights violations of the US

It sometimes is interesting to step outside ones own filter bubble and echo chamber and see what other people perceive if looking at the own country. Of course this is also propaganda - some of the numbers will be exaggerated, but I still think it is a very valid case that China makes there about the USA:
Human Rights Record of United States in 2011|Document|chinadaily.com.cn

Both countries do have many many dark sides so in a way it is funny because both are incredible hypocrites to call the other on these things while pretending to be almost free of that oneself.

It is interesting, China is a corrupt dictatorship, America is getting there and yet in Britain people whinge about the short prison sentences/lack of punishment in general. How does it happen :/

Iron Jones - Actually, I saw that the numbers are valid after all. They are all put up with sources from places like Wall Street Journal, governmental sites and so on.
Probably it is not easy to find numbers on actual human rights violations though, but I guess in this case, we cannot trust anyone anywhere anyways - the US claiming China is really a bad country with human rights violations and the other way around it is the same. I'd guess that probably both of them are right.
