Irrationality of an Ideology That Cannot Frame a Reasonable Cause for Causing Such a Tragedy - Crimes of a Government Out of Control

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too
in response to reader comment: Mahsa Amini and the misguided and woke Legacy Media

The name Mahsa Amini will be etched in recent and future Iranian memory as much as Pahlavi, since both now represent a stolen national identity that many are now content to see recalibrated towards freedom of thought, let alone freedom of expression of those thoughts.
The perpetrators of the crime against Ms Amini thought they had a duty; but they were wrong. Will that be admitted? Likely not; that would require admission of the crime against the right of the victim to be heard when determining which human precept is greater when examining the value of human life versus the value of government playing God. It is why religion operating under human values cannot not properly judge.
So, the forensics indicate she died in custody: what is the government's excuse now?
By the way, justice has a way of sneaking up on the perpetrators: where will the negligent courage protect them when that time comes?
