Video shows mugging in broad daylight on Tehran’s streets

 
The scene, filmed by a surveillance camera, is brief but violent. It takes place in a street in Tehran, as the taxis’ license plates indicate, and shows a man being mugged by four other men.
 
The man is standing in the street, apparently waiting for someone or something, when four men arrive on two motorbikes. Two of the men jump off and grab his bag and also try to take his jacket. The man fights back, but stops when he sees one of his attackers brandish a long knife. Meanwhile, cars drive by as if nothing were wrong, except for a taxi that slows down, but quickly drives off when the knife-wielding attacker threatens him. This attacker then swings at his victim with his knife before he and his friends drive off on the motorbikes.

It is very difficult to obtain any statistics on crime in Iran. The Iranian authorities say that it has dropped over the past decade. In October, police chief Esmayeel Ahamdi Moqaddam claimed that the number of murders in Iran was ten times lower than in Europe. Recently, another video showing a violent attack created outrage in Iran after it was broadcast on state television.

What's up colleagues, how is the whole thing, and what you want to say concerning this post, in my view its in
fact awesome designed for me.

Crime in Islamic countries is grossly underreported

Crime in Islamic countries is grossly underreported... for instance, not a single word in American papers about the three women gang-raped in Tahir Square on a single day of American Thanksgiving this year...

That brings the total to 318 women who were gang raped in Tahir Square this year.

Sadly, the US has ousted a 40 year ally in Mubarak and installed the fundamentalist Islam of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Crime Statistics

Actually there are lots of statistics on crime and scientific studies, almost all of them shows increasing since 10 years, Iran's police is deeply corrupted and more they willing to controlling criminals they try to controlling people and mind Islamic rules such as Hijab and youth relationships, nobody can claim Tehran is secure place to live, you have to be aware of Police, Bassijis, Hezbollah and of course criminals!
