Ticket video of the week: Iran's covered police women show their stuff anyway

August 14, 2010 |  7:00 am

These Iranian police cadets are now hardened police veterans. But their past graduation exercises are somewhat different from those typically held in the West.

On this video the police officers, identified as women, display some of their hard-learned no-nonsense law enforcement tactics against other women. Apparently, the Civil Rights and Community Relations course was an elective.
