For years, the United States has scolded countries all over the world for blocking independent investigations into alleged human rights abuses. But now the tables appear have turned.

In an unprecedented mission to the United States, the United Nations’ Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial Executions is now investigating the death penalty and police killings in the United States. The Special Rapporteur, Senegalese lawyer Bacre Waly N’Diaye, will carry out his mission over the next two weeks. But Mr. N’Diaye has not been receiving such a warm welcome from government officials.
