Judge Not

 Rioting, fires and looting broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, after a grand jury decided not to indict a white police officer over the fatal shooting of an unarmed black boy in August. The U.S. is a very hypocritical country. Americans should reflect themselves sincerely before criticizing other countries.

 On August 9th, police officer Darren Wilson fatally shot Michael Brown Jr. despite the black teenager being unarmed. In Japan, use of arms cannot be permitted under such a situation. Rioting occurred, followed by looting. The U.S. often criticizes other countries in terms of human rights. Russia and China have claimed hypocrisy on the side of the U.S.

 Rioting broke out against the alleged cruel treatment. But, why did looting occur? Looting had nothing to do with the incident. In the aftermath of the Great Tohoku Earthquake in 2011, there was no looting in Japan even though the victims had nothing to eat. On the other hand, when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005 and a cold wave hit New York in 2012, massive looting occurred in the U.S. I believe that the American moral compass is incomparably lower than Japanese's.

 On November 24th, a St. Louis County grand jury was unable to bring charges against the white police officer over the shooting death of Michael Brown Jr. At night, many protest rallies ensued, but, in time, the mob set fires to 12 buildings. Patrol cars were destroyed, and stores were looted.

 On the following day, demonstrations expanded into more than 170 cities, where decades of participants were arrested for failure to disperse. In Ferguson, over 100 demonstrators were arrested. The state authorities deployed 2,200 National Guard. The measures they took were similar to the Chinese Communist Party. At least, peaceful rallies should be permitted. I believe that the U.S. is, in reality, far from democratic.

 The U.S. often condemns other countries from the viewpoint of democracy. However, the U.S. government never criticizes Saudi Arabia, an autocratic nation whose death penalty is said to be the harshest in the world. Even speaking ill of the king deserves capital punishment. The U.S. purchases petroleum from Saudi Arabia, and, in turn, Saudi Arabia purchases weapons from the U.S. Also, the U.S. supported the former Filipino president Marcos, who was a pro-American dictator. The U.S. is very hypocritical.

 Every U.S. president is inaugurated, putting his hand on the Bible. The Bible says, "Judge not, lest ye be judged" (Matthew 7-1). I think that American president and citizens are not qualified to criticize other countries.
