    .....the Iranian clerics have full control over the coercive power of the State and turn that power on people at the slightest whim.  This isn't just some fundy country bumpkin preacher having a fit over 'slutty' outfits.....these people have real power and no problem with using it in the most violent way.

    These girls are going to be killed or put in a prison that makes Alcatraz look like Disney World

    •  Yeah, but the article does not say that, and I (0+ / 0-)

      don't know that. From other comments on this diary it looks like there are specific "morals police" who have that authority, which is different than the average "cleric." You certainly don't get that from reading the article.
