Interesting Story on Iranian Culture Police

This is a really interesting look at the Basijis, the paramilitary force that is the lynchpin of the Iranian police state. They are the ones responsible for quelling street protests, often violently. This piece shows us how they influenced everyday life in Iran before the recent fracas. One can only imagine how much more power they have now.

This is brought to us by American-Iranian Current TV Producer Kouross Esmaeli.
