Jailed in Defense of the Constitution, Part III

Dave Ridley at Keene Free Press - Dave continues the story of his imprisonment, naked, in solitary confinement, for refusing to pay a $100 fine for handing out pieces of paper at an i.r.s. office.

Now it is my time to lie naked in the place where there is no darkness, squinting at the blurry world around me, inefficiently alternating between a sleep that is not sleep....and an alertness which is everything but.

My prime inquisitor, the officer DiFilipo, has seized my eyeglasses, underwear and toiletries...then retired from the scene. His parting words: You are crazy. You are being driven by something that is abnormal, either a drug or a psychological condition. You will end up in the mental hospital if you do not answer our psychological questions.

Eventually he returns to the grimy confinement chamber, drawn by the obvious question: Why are you doing this?
