  • You don't need to go there to know there's a real lack of human rights ESPECIALLY against women.

  • The surname originates in Iran, but he could have been born and raised here, who knows?

    I've had Iranian friends over the years, going back to the days of the Shah, when many Iranians came here. I currently have at least half a dozen Iranian friends and acquaintances. I can guarantee you that this is not "typical" behavior, here or in Iran.

    This guy is a creep wherever he is from. I hope they treat him like the criminal he is and lock him up.
