The NYPD euphemistically calls the public spaces in which the Constitutional rights of the people are suspended “frozen zones.’

Allison Kilkenny wrote about the NYPD’s so-called “frozen zones” in December 2011:




‘The ‘frozen zone’ is an arbitrary, official police business-sounding title that has absolutely zero legal merit. It’s something the NYPD made up, just as the ‘First Amendment zone’ is something [Los Angeles Mayor Antonio] Villaraigosa made up to suppress media coverage of the Occupy raids.’


“It basically means the area is under temporary martial law,” writes FIERCE. “The last times the NYPD declared a Frozen Zone was on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and during the beginning of OWS.”
