Despite the polarizing sides of the two political parties in America the ability for policy to spread beyond its boarders would give a new look on a first of its kind criminal trial. The American people deserve to move on as a country without being held back and imprisoned by their leaders. So what would a Nuremberg Trial in todays world look like when the crimes against humanity spread beyond Americas boarders, and how would world leaders possibly be able to enforce leaders from multiple countries being held accountable?
(For those who have little knowledge of the Nuremberg Trials see below)
The Nuremberg trials were conducted by an international tribunal made up of representatives from the United States, the Soviet Union, France and Great Britain. It was the first trial of its kind in history, and the defendants faced charges ranging from crimes against peace, to crimes of war, to crimes against humanity. Lord Justice Geoffrey Lawrence, the British member, presided over the proceedings, which lasted 10 months and consisted of 216 court sessions.
On October 1, 1946, 12 architects of Nazi policy were sentenced to death. Seven others were sentenced to prison terms ranging from 10 years to life, and three were acquitted. Of the original 24 defendants, one, Robert Ley, committed suicide while in prison, and another, Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach, was deemed mentally and physically incompetent to stand trial. Among those condemned to death by hanging were Joachim von Ribbentrop, Nazi minister of foreign affairs; Hermann Goering, leader of the Gestapo and the Luftwaffe; Alfred Jodl, head of the German armed forces staff; and Wilhelm Frick, minister of the interior.
On October 16, 10 of the architects of Nazi policy were hanged. Goering, who at sentencing was called the “leading war aggressor and creator of the oppressive program against the Jews,” committed suicide by poison on the eve of his scheduled execution. Nazi Party leader Martin Bormann was condemned to death in absentia (but is now believed to have died in May 1945). Trials of lesser German and Axis war criminals continued in Germany into the 1950s and resulted in the conviction of 5,025 other defendants and the execution of 806. – HISTORY
The names that I will mention have many supporters, much like the leaders of the Nazi Party. In an attempt to decompartmentalize the last 6 years my list will include United States Citizens and people beyond Americas boarders who have perpetuated cycles of inciting human right violations and death. This list like the Nuremberg Trials is not complete as 5,000+ more would stand trial after the original 24.
- Anthony Fauci – Chief Medical Advisor to the President of United States
- Donald Trump – 45th President of the United States
- Hillary Clinton – Former United States Secretary of State
- Joe Biden – 46th President of the United States
- Rudy Giuliani – Former Mayor of New York City
- Rupert Murdoch – Australian-American businessman
- Ted Turner – American entrepreneur
- Xi Jingping – President of the People’s Republic of China
- Michael Sussmann – Special prosecutor
- Rochelle P. Walensky – Director of the Centers for Disease Control
- Gavin Newsom – Governor of California
- Alan Dershowitz – American lawyer
- Gao Fu – Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention
- Jared Kushner – Former Senior Advisor to the President of the United States
- Benjamin Netanyahu – 9th prime minister of Israel
- Nacy Pelosi – Speaker of the United States House of Representatives
- Chuck Schumer – Member of the United States Senate
- Bill Barr – Former United States Attorney General
- Scott Morrison – Prime Minister of Australia
- Kim Jong Un – Supreme Leader of North Korea
- Vladimir Putin – President of Russia
Many of the people in power on this list have not killed a single person directly. Although their actions, and policy have cost many lives. This is my list if I was to compile a group of 20 people whom their conviction would lead to others understanding they are not untouchable. From the lowest level of police force to the leader of the United States of America. Again this list is not complete, like Nazi troops, police officers violating human rights should also not be immune to the rule of law.
