Human rights in Creeperopolis

From LCN Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Human rights in Creeperopolis are a topic of concern. The Creeperian government enforces Levitical law which has caused several international organizations to denounce the government as violating basic human rights. The absolute monarchy under the House of Martínez has continued to disregard foreign complains of human rights violations.

Background

The Creeperian Constitution of 1833/1949 explicitly states its stance on human rights:

The Empire protects the basic human rights of all individuals.

— Title IV, Chapter III, Section I, Article XXV

, and:

The Empire protects the freedom and liberty off all individuals.

— Title IV, Chapter III, Section I, Article XXVI

However, in 1914, under the administration of Prime Minister Antonio Sáenz Heredia, the Parliament passed a bill called the Revocation of Criminal Rights Act that stripped the rights of criminals from any protections of the Constitution, including human rights. The High Court of Creeperopolis upheld the act as constitutional as it was a constitutional amendment. Despite efforts to repeal it by liberal governments, the act remained in force, and criminals officially have officially not had human rights in Creeperopolis since 1914.

Torture

The Creeperian government approves of the use of torture in interrogation and as a form of punishment prior to execution.

The Tuxtla Martínez-Panachor Maximum Correctional Facility is notorious for its poor human rights record, especially since it is a prison camp that houses Creeperopolis' worst criminals. Torture is reported to commonly occur at the prison and it has been confirmed on several occasions. In Creeperopolis, pedophilia and any crime against a child are punished by death, and all of the country's convicted pedophiles and those who committed crimes against children are sent to TMP. During an interview with the Gaceta Creeperiano in 2012, Onésimo Ledesma Soriano, the Director of the prison, described the process such an individual goes through in the prison.

(Question: It is known that all pedophiles are sent to TMP after they are arrested and pedophilia is a capital crime according to the Constitution. What exactly happens to them when they are sent to TMP?)

We have the pedophile sent here late at night, around midnight. When the subhuman arrives, it is a subhuman because it officially loses personhood when it commits the act, we send it to a dark room under the administration block and it is left in darkness and nothingness, hands and feet tied up, no food and no water, to mess with its mental state, for about two hours. After the two hours, we come in and dimly light the room. If it's asleep, we whip it until it wakes up, but if it's awake, we whip it anyway to let it know we're here. After that, we begin, around, 30 minutes of waterboarding, informing it that this is the tamest of the punishments it will endure for its crime. Next, since the poor thing hasn't had anything to eat all day and must be starving, we give it its first meal of the day, but first we need to aquire the meal. The thing is stripped and forcibly castrated. Our preferred method is a slow slicing from the bottom up with a rusty machete to ensure it suffers as much as possible for the crime it committed with its reproductive system, not before crushing and stomping on it of course; it doesn't deserve to have a reproductive system anymore. So now, we have its dinner. We feed it to it since it's still tied up. If it refuses to eat up after 10 minutes, we cut off one finger. Another ten minutes, another finger, and repeat. After we are out of fingers, we move to toes. If it still refuses to eat, we blend its meal and add feces and urine from the prisoners to the blend and forcibly make it drink up. However, if it does eat, we cut off the fingers and toes quickly instead of slowly as a reward for being cooperative. Now that dinner is over, the thing has been fed and can never commit such an abomination ever again. Next, we leave the thing alone until 6am when we take a roll call of the prison. We announce to the prisoners their new guest and inform the population of its crime, and we let it into the prison population. If it dies, it dies, oh well. Even Mara Salvatrucha despises these subhumans. You may say that it is escaping our justice, but the maras are in here for a reason. When the kill these things, the killings are brutal and torturous. I remember several times seeing these things skinned and even sometimes decapitated. Like, they have no access to anything sharp, so I'm genuinely impressed the gangs manage to decapitate these things. Perhaps they use their shoelaces to good effect, who knows. Sometimes they even let it survive, knowing that it will endure more pain if we torture it. Anyway, if it survives until noon rolecall, it is removed from the population and returns to the dark room. It is again tied up and stripped and we slowly pull its arms and legs apart, while at the same time dropping burning coal onto its body to induce severe burns while continuing to whip it. As part of our mental torture, we let spiders and cockroaches and ants crawl all over it. Don't worry, none are venomous. We don't want the subhuman to escape from a bite to die of poison; it needs to suffer. When the joints in its arms and legs are broken, we begin to slowly skin its feet and work up until the knees. At the same time, we take sledgehammers and work away at breaking its femurs. Then we pull out teeth and wax off any hair left on its body. Next, its skinless feet are put on a grill to burn and we cut off the ears and nose. If it survives all of that, and believe me, unfortunate souls have survived that torment, we bring it to the prison yard during yard time at around 4pm and announce to the prisoners that the subhuman survived and will be executed in the yard. It is perhaps the only time prisoners and guards are side by side in agreement that justice is being served. We nail it to an upside down cross and set it on fire. Sometimes its broken joints give way and it falls to the ground, sometimes its joints don't give way and it stays there. Either way, it burns alive and it is then up to God to decide if it has truly repented for its crime and will regain its personhood or if it will be eternally damned. I have overseen over 5,000 such executions. I do not regret a single one.

— Onésimo Ledesma Soriano, 2012

The response from Ledesma Soriano was approved by the Creeperian government. The government notes that a notable decrease in arrests of pedophiles was reported in the following 2 years, possibly as a fear of what would happen to them for the crime they would have been convicted of.

Eugenics

Allegations have been made that the Creeperian government preforms eugenics experiments at the Tuxtla Martínez-Panachor prison camp as a part of its torture program.

Around 800–1,000 executions occur in Creeperopolis every year on average for crimes ranging from murder to sorcery to apostasy to pedophilia. Creeperopolis executes the most people compared to any other country on Terraconserva.

Sectarianism and freedom of religion

In regard to religious freedoms, the Creeperian Constitution states:

The Empire protects freedom of religion in cases of private and public worship. The Creeperian Catholic Church may be allowed to run places of worship with government tax breaks.

— Title IV, Chapter III, Section I, Article XXI

Atheists

Anti-Atheism (Antiateísmo) is an enforced policy in Creeperopolis. Creeperian Anti-Atheism is an ideology and a political movement against Atheism, as a theory and more specifically as it presented itself during the Second Parliamentary Era and the Creeperian Civil War. Organized Anti-Atheism developed properly during the Creeperian Civil War with rise of the National Council for Peace and Order, nicknamed the Miguelists. Anti-Atheism was one of the core elements of Romerism and the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council, nicknamed the Romerists.

The first organization which was specifically dedicated to opposing Atheism was the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council which fought in the Creeperian Civil War starting in 1933 against the recently established National Council for Peace and Order. The Romerist movement was militarily supported by several allied foreign governments which represented the first instance of Anti-Atheism as a government policy in Creeperopolis. The Romerists defeated the Miguelists and Creeperopolis was stabilized in 1949. Following the civil war, the Creeperian Initiative was established with Anti-Atheism as one of its core ideologies. The Creeperian government continues to impose Anti-Atheist policies. In Creeperopolis, practicing Atheism is punishable by the death penalty.

Agnostics and irreligious

Muslims

Protestants

Freedom of press and communications

In regard to freedom of speech, the Creeperian Constitution states:

The Empire protects freedom of speech unless directed directly at the Supreme Pontiff (Pope and King of the State of the Church) or the Emperor of Creeperopolis.

— Title IV, Chapter III, Section I, Article XXII

Political freedom

Anti-Communism (Anticomunismo) is an enforced policy in Creeperopolis. Creeperian Anti-Communism is an ideology and a political movement against Communism, as a theory and more specifically as it presented itself during the Second Parliamentary Era). Organized Anti-Communism developed during the Creeperian Civil War with rise of the National Council for Peace and Order. Anti-communism was one of the core elements of Romerism and the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council.

The first organization which was specifically dedicated to opposing communism was the Creeperian Pro-Fatherland Front which fought in the Creeperian Civil War with its Camisas Negras starting in 1933 against the Creeperian Social Communist Party and its Atheist Red Army. The Romerist movement was militarily supported by several allied foreign governments which represented the first instance of Anti-Communism as a government policy in Creeperopolis. Following the civil war, the Creeperian Initiative was established with Anti-Communism as one of its core ideologies. The Creeperian government continues to impose Anti-Communist policies.

The Third Senvarian Insurgency (1934-2020) against the separatist Senvarian Liberation Front was seen as an armed Anti-Communist struggle in Creeperopolis. A death squad, the Sombra Negra, targeted Senvarians and communists since its establishment in 1940 by Adolfo Rivera López during the civil war. FRENAMI sees vigilante justice as the only way to cleanse Creeperopolis of communism. There are allegations that FRENAMI may be funded or operated by the Creeperian government, which denies the claims.
