Weapons of Mass Beating
Who supplies equipment to the Iranian riot police such as the one shown above? The bike appears to be a Honda but the rest of his gear looks European. How about one concrete step to help Iranian democracy in figuring out where the government is getting these particular instruments of repression?
UPDATE: Now there are reports that the government is using tear gas and water cannon to break up Saturday's demonstration. Same questions: where did they get them and will they restock?
