RE: AI criticizes police for handling of Roma, June 6 - June 12, 2005, Volume 11, Number 22
Sometimes I wish that Amnesty International would get off its high horse and start doing more than just complaining about what everyone else does wrong in this world. Where are Amnesty's realistic suggestions for dealing with social issues? It always points out the problems and shovels out the blame but doesn't seem willing to roll up its sleeves and get dirty. Having worked in some very difficult and stressful conditions in my past, I know it is easy for people looking in on a situation to come to different conclusions about that situation or think that something should have, could have or would have been done differently. Things are easy to judge from the outside or in retrospect sometimes, but that doesn't always mean that they are the correct judgments.
