Iran: Security Forces Murder Young People in Streets


The Iranian State Security Forces (SSF) killed a young man in broad daylight in Mashhad by chaining him to a pole and then using an electric taser and pepper spray on him several times until he suffocated. 

A video of this senseless crime and the man’s lifeless body was posted to social media, igniting more outrage against the ayatollahs, but this was far from the only example of this sort of abuse. 

There are reports that another young man was murdered in North Khorasan, northeast Iran, by authorities who opened fire on him and then further assaulted him when he was injured. His family has filed a ‘deadly shooting’ lawsuit in response. 

Young Iranians are being tortured and murdered by the SSF, even as the ayatollahs condemn police brutality in other countries. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei spoke in June about the “messy situation in America”, but he can’t be that concerned about police violence when his officers are reacting exactly the same.

Iran Arrests Thousands Arbitrarily Fearing an Protest

While, in October, Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) commander Hossein Salami said that the SSF was not at all separated from the IRGC and that they showed “the most elegant morals of the administration.”

These criminal measures are always endorsed and supported by officials, including Khamenei himself, the Iranian Opposition Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK/PMOI) wrote on November 1.

After all, in October, he sent his best wishes to the “good, hardworking State Security Forces”, who the people “value” for their “strength and kindness”. These “kind” forces are publically killing, attacking, or humiliating people. The people do not value this. 

So why are the government doing this? The ruling theocracy is on the brink of collapse because the Iranian people’s outrage is only growing and will continue to grow.

Authorities are terrified of another round of protests, so the state-run media talks of “escalating” violence and warns that this is the inevitable response to ignoring the people’s dilemmas. 

The most important outcomes of economic crises are likely to be followed by social and political effects. Therefore, there is a risk of this spreading insecurity, violence, and clashes,” Mostaghel daily wrote on October 26.

With social peace nosediving—usually being prior to a general peace—there are concerns about widespread public unrest in the near future, Mostaghel added.

The ayatollahs fear overthrow because of public anger, so they send the SSF to create an atmosphere of fear, which leads to more anger and will result in the overthrow of the theocratic government.
