Two-Thirds of Americans Live in the 'Constitution-Free Zone'

Recent Greyhound bus raids have revealed an obscure law that gives Border Patrol authority 100 miles inside borders, across the entire perimeter of the country

Americans living within 100 miles of a U.S. border live in "Constitution-free zones," according to civil liberties advocates, where border patrol agents can search any vehicle without a warrant.

(CD) - In Hartford, Vermont, last year, U.S. Border Patrol agents boarded a Greyhound bus as it arrived from Boston, asking passengers about their citizenship and checking the IDs of people of color or those with accents. In January, they stopped a man in Indio, California, as he was boarding a Los Angeles-bound bus. In questioning him about his immigration status, they told him his “shoes looked suspicious,” like those of someone who had recently crossed the border.

Tattoo Shop in Orange Park, Florida is a Fertile Ground for Violent and Pedophilic White Nationalist Criminals

On a warm, June afternoon in Marion County, Indiana, Ashley McNeil walked cheerfully home after doing some light shopping at a convenience store near her house.  The year was 2001, and the 13-year old McNeil had no idea what was to transpire as she bounded through the door to head home. Shortly before, a 21-year old self-admitted Neo-Nazi named Trevor Thompson (A.K.A. Trey Hooligan, D.O.B. 09/07/1980) had argued on the street with several Black men in the nearby area.  Thompson was a habitual methamphetamine user and had been awake for three days straight, spoiling for a fight.  To that end, he was driving around the area and targeting people of color (POC) with impunity for his rage.  Thompson was and is a career racist, having strong ties to the Hammerskins and the World Church of the Creator World Church of the Creator.  However, he failed to gain ground with the adult POC with whom he had argued.  Instead, he drove around town looking for easier targets.  It was then, that he spotted Ashley McNeil.  Perhaps it was the slightness of her teenage frame, or spring in her step that caught his eye?  We may never know what caught his attention, but we do know what provoked his ire.  Ashley is Black, and so Thompson drove up to where she was walking near Keystone and Hanna, and leaned out of the window of his car.  He pointed a gun at the terrified child, and he fired it.  The bullet struck Ashley in the hip, missing an artery by only a few inches, narrowly sparing her life.
