You Go Girls!

Hat Tip to Jules Crittenden.

Saudi religious police (you know who I mean, the guys who make it their busines to "instruct" women on how to behave and dress in public -- in some cases women who are inappropriately garbed are roughed up) approached two women and got more than they bargained for.

When accosted by the "Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice" the women responded with "verbal abuse" and eventually pepper spray. One of the girls filmed the incident on her mobile phone. Expect to see it soon on YouTube.

At that point the regular police intervened and the girls were arrested. Hope they're all right.
