The disciplinary forces abuse students

Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi
Regime-run site, ENTEKHAAB, reports on the abusive and violent treatment of the disciplinary guards toward the youth of Iran. The Students of Varaameen University write:
"Everyday after class, we head home toward Tehran and during the bus ride we are forced to pull the curtains of the buses so that the disciplinary forces do not see that there are girls and boys riding in the bus together as they will surely taunt us and fine the bus driver $2500.

However, a few days ago, due to the heat, we forgot to pull the curtains, which led to our bus being pulled over by the so-called police. A swanky green Mercedes-Benz slammed on the breaks right in front of the bus; one of the patrolmen got on the bus for inspection. His belligerence was unbelievable... he piled every filthy thing that came out of his nasty mouth on us all. The things he said made me sweat with shame in front of the ladies who were present."
