Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian woman, dies in police custody three days after her arrest on a hijab infraction. Once again the streets erupt in protest, according to The New York Times, because Iranians have nothing left to lose. It’s not just that “morality police” have killed another young woman, but that she was arrested in the first place. Will the U.S. and her allies respond forcefully this time, or (once again) mumble admonitions as when Neda Soltan was slaughtered on camera in 2009?
