UN entity invokes Trayvon in call for action

Invoking Trayvon Martin's name, the UN now seeks to meddle in U.S. self defense protections.

From the United Nations News Service:
3 September 2013 – A group of United Nations independent experts today called on the Government of the United States to finalize the ongoing review of the case involving the death of teenager Trayvon Martin, an African –American teenager who was shot in 2012 by a neighbourhood watchman in the state of Florida. 
“We call upon the US Government to examine its laws that could have discriminatory impact on African Americans, and to ensure that such laws are in full compliance with the country’s international legal obligations and relevant standards,” said human rights expert Verene Shepherd, who currently heads the UN Working Group of Experts of People of African Descent.
Has this group noted data that shows African Americans have disproportionately benefited from Stand Your Ground laws?

I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for facts to get in the way of a UN entity's political agenda.

H/T to for reporting this UN effort. But wading through the pop-ups on the Examiner site is more than I'm willing to sit through some mornings.
