Neda's Family Kicked Out

What happens when your daughter is heartlessly and purposely shot and bleeds out in 20 seconds and dies in your arms as the result of Government action in Iran?

The Guardian
- "Neighbours said that her family no longer lives in the four-floor apartment building on Meshkini Street, in eastern Tehran, having been forced to move since she was killed. The police did not hand the body back to her family, her funeral was cancelled, she was buried without letting her family know and the government banned mourning ceremonies at mosques, the neighbours said.

'We just know that they [the family] were forced to leave their flat,' a neighbour said. The Guardian was unable to contact the family directly to confirm if they had been forced to leave."
Neda Agha Soltan's family are now suffering for their daughter's purposeless death, beyond just the death part, the dying in front of you part, the dying in gory startling horrifying part. They couldn't go to her funeral (important for a Muslim) and they've been kicked out of town. Any thought that those who rule are legitimate tends to fade with actions such as his in the face of world scrutiny. Clearly, Iran's leaders think they can do and get away with anything. Hat tip to Medius Oriens.
