    Human rights are universal, indivisible and interdependent. Human rights are what make us human. When we speak of the right to life, or development, or to dissent and diversity, we are speaking of tolerance. Tolerance will ensure all freedoms. Without it, we can be certain of none.

    Zero Tolerance To the best of my knowledge on the subject the zero tolerance rule is a very good rule, because there is no room for error on the part of the criminal justice system and there is no room for a misleading excuse.
