I've seen Constitutional
Free Zone map multiple times, and I've tried to substantiate the
claims made by the ACLU but everything I've found so
far points back to the ACLU; I've yet to find anything that doesn't point
But then I saw this video of DHS checkpoint
refusals (link via Flutterby),
all of which took place inside the United States (and not
at the border), one of which was at least 30 miles from the border.
So perhaps there is something to that ACLU article.
Another odd thing about that video—most of the agents would not,
refused, or tried to talk about the question “am I being detained?” Oh,
and the automatic assumption of guilt when one refuser plead
the Fifth. I also found it offensive when the officers admonished the
refusers for making their job more difficult.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
