Human Right vs Government Dictatorship

Human Right vs Government Dictatorship
 Yesterday in Sudan, government alleged security force fatally shot dozens of protesters as the demonstration grew larger. The government used military force to kill its citizens, which definitely violates the human right. However, the government claimed that their action was to protect other people from the insane mob. Apparently, a variety of people do not agree with the government’s explanation. “Even when responding to violent acts by some protesters, the security forces have a duty to protect all individuals from violence and to avoid unnecessary loss of life. Anyone responsible for the arbitrary or abusive use of force against protesters must be brought to justice, and the Sudanese authorities must send a clear message that the excessive use of force will not be tolerated.”(1)
  In my opinion, I definitely oppose the government’s action. I would love to share my thoughts on this issue here. There is no doubt that there are always some people or group who do not agree with the government’s decisions, even in some developed countries like the US. However, these people hardly make some violence like in Sudan. Why does this happen? From my perspective, the US government has established a better system to listen to people’s opinions and solved them. In this case, even though people feel unhappy with their government, they would not do such ‘bad’ protest. So the issue actually still comes from the government. If the government is not democratic enough to accept opposite opinions, unsatisfied people will protest and may take some harmful actions.
  As a conclusion, I think only ‘dictatorship’ needs military enforcement to shut down protest. If Sudanic government really wanted to prove that it was not a dictator government, it should develop a better system or policy to deal with its protestors!
