In the article “I Had a Dream to Finish School” from the Human Rights Watch, the author explains how students in Tanzania are being violated of their human rights. For example, they were being violated of their right of freedom from being physical abused by both the teachers and sometimes even the police because according to the article it says that "School officials and teachers in many schools routinely resort to corporal punishment, a practice that is still lawful in Tanzania in violation of its international obligations. Many students are also subjected to violence and psychological abuse that amounts to humiliating and degrading treatment. Some teachers beat students with bamboo or wooden sticks, or with their hands or other objects"(Pg 10). This quote shows that along with the article 5, 26 of human rights are being violated because although they're might be some students that could not be behaving in school that doesn't you beat them with a wooden stick or put them in jail and this would be another situation where the punishment doesn't fit the crime, an example of would be if an student were to talking to another student while the teacher is teaching the classroom and the teacher gets upset at the student for interrupting. in that case, the teacher would be right to get upset at student but that doesn't mean that they should be arrested and beaten up by the police. This has opened my eyes to how students are at risk, and that this could happen to many other students in poor countries too with being arrested for just for being themselves
In this article "Pakistan Coercion, UN Complicity" from the human rights watch, the author explains how Afghans refugees in Pakistan are being abused by the police. For example, they were being violated of their right of freedom from being physical abused by the police because according to the article it says that "Human Rights Watch documented the consequences of the plan, which included a wave of Pakistani police abuses against Afghans, such as unlawful use of force, arbitrary arrest and detention, extortion and house demolitions. These abuses decreased after July 2015, but UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) confirmed that police harassment and intimidation, and Afghans’ fear of arrest and deportation, continued to drive Afghans out of Pakistan as late as September 2015. Most Afghans Human Rights Watch interviewed for this report said that police abuses significantly decreased during the last few months of 2015. By the end of the year, 58,211 registered Afghan refugees had returned to Afghanistan, up from 12,991 in 2014". (pg 10) This quote shows that along with articles 1,2 and 5 of human rights are being violated because the Afghans refugees are being treated differently and more harshly from the Pakistan by the police just because their new to their country which is just wrong because the Afghans refugees are also people too, you know and judging someone by what religion they have or from where they come from is violating their human rights. This has opened my eyes to how refugees are at risk, and that this could happen to many other refugees in poor countries too with being treated harshly for just for being from a different country.
In the article "Killing of Brazilian judge exposes police corruption" from the Amnesty International USA,the author explains how several people in Rio de Janeiro (after the killing of a couple of brazilian judges) are being arrested and falsely accused for the murder. For example, during the murder investigation, they had found that a hit list of 12 people, including other judges and prosecutors, marked for death by a local militia group run by former police officers because according to the article it says that "“Patrícia Acioli’s brutal killing exposes a deeply troubling situation where corruption and organized crime are controlling large areas of life in parts of Rio de Janeiro today,” said Patrick Wilcken, Brazil Researcher at Amnesty International. “The killing of a judge who was simply carrying out her duty has dealt a blow to the rule of law and the judicial system in Brazil. The authorities must undertake a thorough and independent investigation to bring those responsible to justice."(paragraph 8) This quote says that along with articles 1,9,11 of the human rights are being violated because the corrupted police officers are arresting a lot of people from gangs even though there was no evidence that led them to believe that they did the crime which goes against the human rights article 9 (freedom from arbitrary arrest and exile) and according to the text it says that, they had arrested Despite more than 500 arrests of militia members and high profile trials of corrupt police officers since then, little has been done to tackle the illegal economic activities that fuel these groups. This has opened my eyes to how criminals from are at risk, and that this could happen to many other criminals in other countries too with being treated harshly for just for being from a different country.
