Saudi Religious Police Prevent Women From Using Swings
 

Those who supported the actions of the police said "the swing could tempt passers-by to harass or attack them."

A picture of the Saudi Arabian religious police stopping women in a public park from using the swings has gone viral in the Kingdom. News outlets and social media, abuzz with the story, have garnered opinions that both support and oppose the actions of the police (who are officially titled the "Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice").

Akhbaar24 news, who originally reported the story, said those who supported the actions of the police said "the swing could tempt passers-by to harass or attack them."

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

This reminded me of a article I read a few years ago. A woman choked to death when riding a go-cart. Her head dress got caught up in the wheels and killed her. I guess go-carts OK swings not so much.
