Portland Federal Agents Accused of War Crimes for Destroying Medical Supplies/Geneva Convention

Portland Federal Agents Accused of War Crimes for Destroying Medical Supplies





From Newsweek Article:

Federal authorities have been accused of violating the Geneva Convention after apparently destroying medical equipment during protests in Portland.


Reporter Sergio Olmos shared a video on Twitter Tuesday night showing medical supplies and protective gear covered in an orange liquid.

"It appears that federal officers, during dispersal, pepper sprayed the medical supplies in the tents," Olmos wrote.

This is Fubar. The Geneva Convention states that destroying medical equipment is a war crime violation. Yet, here we are in Portland," Fiegl-Ding wrote.

In another tweet, he added: "Attacking medical units violates half a dozen conventions and international statutes, not only Geneva Convention but also International Criminal Court statutes. But hey, Chad Wolf, Bill Barr, and Trump say it's okay!"


Replying to
@MrOlmos
The First Geneva Convention states that there should be no “obstacle to the humanitarian activities” and that wounded and sick “shall be respected and protected in all circumstances.” Medical units, i.e. hospitals and mobile medical facilities, may in no circumstances be attacked

@MrOlmos
This is literally a war crime per the Geneva Convention

4. They are all mercenaries.

The PPE and meds are hard enough to come by and they destroy it.

6. They need to round up about 50 of those fkers, strip them of the man-gear,

& detain them until they tell who they are, who commissiined them & then start charging them & every commander all the way to Barr & Trump.

This is not just America's DOJ issue to decide. This is an international criminal court's decision.

This charge should now gives a bit more power to State AG's, mayors & govenors as well.
Hopefully they can stop this assault on American citizen's rights.

9. Geneva Convention doesn't apply.

One must also understand that not all violations of the Geneva convention rise to the level of "war crimes" and to equate this incident with murder of civilians or mass rape is rather sad.

10. Mass rape & murder isn't the accusation. It is a particular. The destruction of media supplies

That's what is being addressed here.
That particular.

17. In your OP, you equate this incident with murder and mass rape

This is the title of your OP:

"Portland Federal Agents Accused of War Crimes for Destroying Medical Supplies/Geneva Convention"

Under the Geneva Convention, a war crime is a grave breach of the Convention. Examples of which are rape, murder, genocide and such.

12. Is there a war in Portland?

That seems to be a logical perquisite for a war crime.

14. Poland, Portland... ya know.

Just because they haven't brought in the B-52's doesn't mean it's not a war.

16. I honestly don't know what to call it.

Be nice to know if our own military will honor the oath of "foreign or domestic threats"
Unless we're the threat!

I have no idea ..yet
I think we'll find out tho.
