Video Shows Feds Firing On Ed Brown Supporter

Video Shows Feds Firing On Ed Brown’s Dog Walker Last Summer

A newly released video has corroborated the account of Danny Riley, a supporter of income tax protesters Ed and Elaine Brown, who claimed that he was fired at by US federal agents hiding in the woods outside the Brown’s New Hampshire home last Summer.

Infowars and Prisonplanet extensively covered the events in Plainfield, N.H. last year, where Ed and Elaine Brown remained in their home for months, refusing to face trial and subsequent conviction on charges of non-payment of income taxes.

The couple were arrested peacefully last August, after the long stand off, when agents infiltrated the property posing as supporters.

The new video, shot by the feds on June 7th, shows men in full jungle camouflage gear, lining the approach to the Brown’s driveway as Riley approaches walking their dog.

After recognizing the dog’s awareness of someone in the area, Riley surveys the scene for a few minutes before the camouflaged agents are discovered and reveal themselves.

As Riley turns and runs, one of the agents clearly fires a shot, you can see the long gun and a burst of smoke.

After Riley was caught and tased several times he was arrested and interrogated for several hours. When the authorities let him go he videoed a personal testimony of what had happened and posted it on the internet, despite having been threatened with a lengthy prison sentence should he talk to the media.

Riley stated that after yelling to ask what one man was doing, another man in camouflage popped up in front of Riley and yelled “freeze” after which Riley turned and ran.

“At that point, a round went down range right by my head – I heard it whiz by me – I was screaming at the top of my lungs – don’t shoot me, don’t shoot me I’m unarmed,” Riley said.

It became clear that Riley had averted a planned siege that was only aborted after his disappearance gave the Browns early warning that militarized police and SWAT teams were descending on their home.

U.S. Marshals downplayed the entire incident and denied any kind of siege was being planned. They also denied that any shots had been fired, a claim which now clearly appears to be false.

Read the Prisonplanet report from June 8th.

Watch the newly released video of agents firing at Riley:

The video, which was provided to Riley’s legal defense team, was subsequently acquired by Ridley Report and posted to Youtube.

As the commentator states, supporters of the Browns who have viewed the video have pointed out a major issue with the footage.

As the federal agents are discovered by the dog, the footage reverts to a low resolution for the remainder of the video. Supporters have highlighted that this could hide critical details.

Riley is currently standing trial on charges of conspiring with two other men to “help federal fugitives evade capture”, providing weapons and handling explosives. If convicted Riley, along with Jason Gerhard and Cirino Gonzalez, faces years behind bars.

So far the court has been provided emails and heard recordings of Riley and the other men, which the prosecution says prove their intent to acquire weapons and instigate violence at the Brown property.

However, there has been no forensic evidence showing weapons and explosives were handled by any of the men.

The Defense attorneys have argued that the men left the Browns’ house months before federal agents searched the property. The situation escalated in the final months of the standoff, the attorneys said, and not one of the men was there when the weapons were found.

Most of the audio recordings were of various calls to radio shows in which Riley and the others refer to the standoff as “the beginning of the revolution to take the country back from those thieving international bankers” and “the new world order”.

One in particular was a call Riley made regarding an incident after he had returned to the Browns’ home in late July when he reported 30-40 shots being fired in what was a probable attempt at provocation to goad the Browns and their supporters into a violent response.

The trial seems to hinge on proving that the men and the Browns were intent on causing violence. The fact remains, however, that no violent provocation was ever carried out by them or on their behalf. The evidence shows that the same cannot be said of the federal agents involved in the case.

The trial is expected to conclude in around two weeks time.

Tax Evaders’ Property Now in Feds’ Hands

Tax Evaders’ Property Now in Feds’ Hands

AP

October 19, 2007

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The property where two tax evaders holed up for months refusing to surrender and serve prison sentences has been cleared of explosives and seized by the federal government.

Explosives teams needed two weeks to find, remove and blow up a large number of homemade bombs and dismantle booby traps, U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier said Thursday. The wooded, 110-acre property in Plainfield includes a solar- and wind-powered home.

Ed and Elaine Brown had holed up there since walking out of their federal trial in January. They were arrested this month by federal agents who posed as supporters. They are now serving 5-year prison sentences.

Elaine Brown’s dental office in nearby Lebanon also was seized by the Treasury Department. The properties may be sold to cover the Browns’ unpaid federal income taxes. They were convicted of hiding $1.9 million in income between 1996 and 2003 to avoid paying the federal income tax, which they believe is not legitimate.

The seized properties are posted with “No Trespassing — Government Property” signs, and federal authorities warned that anyone attempting to enter without permission can be arrested.

The Browns’ standoff was sustained by stores of food, supplies from supporters and a fan base stoked by postings on the Internet.

Four of their supporters have been charged with helping the Browns evade arrest. The cases were reassigned this week to U.S. District Court in Portland, Maine, after federal judges in New Hampshire recused themselves.

Ed Brown is serving his prison term in Elkton, Ohio, and Elaine Brown in Danbury, Conn. Authorities say the Browns could face new charges related to the standoff.

Ed Brown: “I Was Gassed For Three Days…”

Ed Brown Gassed, Tortured in Deprivation Tank. Tax protester speaks for first time since arrest in prison phone call

In a disturbing audio clip, Ed Brown speaks for the first time since his arrest and relates how he was gassed by noxious fumes for three days in a detention center as well as being put in a deprivation tank for 15 hours.

Shaun Kranish of MaketheStand.com was able to call the Ohio prison that Brown has been incarcerated in and talk with him on the phone for 10 minutes.

Sensory deprivation is a form of torture and extended deprivation can result in extreme anxiety, hallucinations, bizarre thoughts, depression, and antisocial behavior.

Brown also said he had been prevented from making any phone calls or receiving mail.

For the first time, Brown reveals what happened when he was tricked and arrested by U.S. Marshals, including how he was tasered multiple times.

Brown said that he had a chance to fight back during the arrest but that he did not want to hurt anyone.

Brown said his captors were treating him with “professional cruelty” and mentioned that they had also done harrowing things to his wife following her arrest, but refused to go into detail.

“I guess Ed and Elaine Brown, the elderly couple, really rattled their cages, we must be a real terror to the federal government, the corporate structure,” said Brown.

Following our article about Ed Brown supporters fearing Brown was being mistreated or tortured, U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier dismissed it, saying, “That’s absolutely ludicrous.”

If what Ed Brown relates in the audio clip is true, it’s abundantly clear that he is being cruelly mistreated.

Ed Brown delivered to federal prison in Ohio

Associated Press
October 10, 2007

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – A convicted New Hampshire tax evader is now at his new home — a federal prison in Ohio.

Stephen Monier, the U.S. Marshal for New Hampshire, says Ed Brown of Plainfield arrived earlier today at the low security Federal Correctional Institution in Elkton, Ohio.

Monier says Brown had not spent time in any New Hampshire jail since being arrested last week, but had been staying at undisclosed locations under the watch of marshal’s deputies en route to prison. Elaine Brown began serving her sentence earlier this week at the Federal Correction Institution in Danbury, Conn., a minimum-security prison for women.

Officers arrested the Browns last week at their hilltop home in Plainfield. Their monthslong exile began after they abandoned their trial in January. In April they each were sentenced to 63 months in prison but refused to report to authorities.

Armed Feds Question Bloggers In Brown Case


Armed Feds Question Bloggers In Brown Case

Manhunt ensues as Marshals search for alleged “hit list”

Armed federal agents paid a visit to blogger Michael Hampton’s home on Friday, detaining everyone inside the house for 90 minutes, to ask questions about an alleged hit list of federal judges in relation to supposed revenge attacks in the aftermath of the Ed and Elaine Brown arrests.

The visit was part of a manhunt taking place in and around Manchester, New Hampshire, which also ensnared members of the Free State Project who had protested on behalf of the Browns.
“Marshal John Bolen of the U.S. Marshals Office of Protective Intelligence traveled to Manchester, N.H., to investigate threats of violence allegedly made against Steven McAuliffe, a federal judge in the district court in Concord, and other federal officials in the area. He brought along with him other marshals and agents who would only say that they were with the Treasury Department,” writes Hampton in his account of the incident.

In the following You Tube video, Dave Ridley traveled to Hampton’s home in the immediate aftermath of the incident in which armed federal agents wearing body armor demanded answers about alleged plans for violent revenge attacks despite the fact that Hampton has never advocated violence in any of his blogs about the Brown case.

Feds made it clear to those detained that if any violence did later occur “it would be on their heads.”

Later, plain clothed Marshals arrived at a local bar to question Ivy Ancram about her roommate, Rob Jacobs, who the feds were seeking regarding the alleged plot to kill government agents. After telling the feds that she didn’t know where Jacobs was, the officials warned her that she could be arrested if she was lying or withholding information and also offered her cash in return for information on Jacobs’ whereabouts, according to Ancram.Marshals told Ancram that if Jacobs did not contact them within 24 hours they would put out a warrant for his arrest.

Jacobs later returned to Manchester and arranged to meet with the Marshals but they failed to show up.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3D-v6LaR4I

Hampton questioned the Feds on why they chose to visit the home of a blogger who has never advocated violence in light of a new report criticizing marshals for their failure to protect federal judges and investigate genuine threats of violence against them.

“A report (PDF) released Wednesday by the Department of Justice Inspector General found that marshals’ efforts to protect federal judges had “languished,” with growing backlogs of threats to be assessed and investigated, and improper assessment of threats leading to misallocation of resources,” writes Hampton.

“So, apparently unable or unwilling to face the people who have said they want to shoot government agents, they came to my house instead. And misallocation of resources certainly seems to describe Friday’s incidents,” he added.

Jacobs, Ancram and Hampton all strongly emphasized the fact that they are totally opposed to any violence arising out of the arrests of Ed and Elaine Brown.

It has been rumored that some militant supporters of the Browns have threatened revenge attacks. We would like to remind those people that their actions are completely abhorrent and will only bring untold misery to legitimate peaceful supporters of the Browns who are highlighting the case as part of a process of educating the public about the IRS and the illegal income tax.

Meanwhile, Ed Brown remains “in transit,” leading many of his supporters to fear he is being mistreated or tortured. However, Steve Monier, U.S. marshal for New Hampshire, is set to disclose the location of the prison at which Brown will begin his 63 month as early as today, according to reports.

Supporters Fear Ed Brown Is Being Tortured


Supporters Fear Ed Brown Is Being Tortured

Authorities refuse to divulge location of tax protester

Federal officials have refused to divulge the location of tax protester Ed Brown who was arrested on Friday, prompting many of his supporters to fear that Brown has been disappeared into a black hole and is being mistreated or even tortured.

Brown and his wife Elaine were arrested on Friday after U.S. Marshals posing as supporters gained access to their Plainfield home and apprehended the couple.
“Elaine Brown is serving her 63-month sentence in the Federal Correctional Institute in Danbury, Conn., a minimum prison facility for women, according to Steve Monier (pictured above), U.S. Marshal for New Hampshire,” reports the Union Leader.

But Monier refused to say where Ed Brown was being held, only that he remains “in transit”, and also ignored questions about why there was a delay in transporting him to the prison where he will serve his sentence, the identity of which remains unknown.

This led supporters of Brown to make their concerns known that he could be undergoing brutal interrogation and torture at the hands of vengeful Feds embarrassed at Brown’s taunting of them during the 6 month stand-off.

“Let them know Ed has not been handed over to the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) yet! We don’t know if he’s alive, in good health, where he is, why he hasn’t been handed over (there is NO good reason for this). We can only assume they’re torturing him for information, giving him “diesel therapy” and other things, like they did to Congressman Hansen!!!,” reads a posting on Ed Brown’s official website.

Supporters fear that Brown is being transported from prison to prison and being forced to sit in the same position for hours at a time while heavily shackled, causing painful circulation problems and nerve damage. This was a form of torture inflicted by Federal Marshals on Congressman George Hansen, who served four years in jail for alleged IRS infractions before being declared innocent by the U. S. Supreme Court.

“Each day the metal shackles are put back onto raw and infected legs before the prisoner boards the bus. After weeks and months of diesel therapy, the ankles and shins have raw, infected and open wounds that will not heal,” reads the website.

“Hour after hour, the prisoner sits in a cramped & painful position, with shackles cutting into already infected, raw flesh. Arthritis and bursitis compound the misery of the prisoners. The ingrown, infected toenails, which are jammed inside of purposely small shoes, cripple the prisoner to the point that he can barely walk or move when he is finally released from the shackles.”

Brown’s supporters are urging the general public to call the U.S. Marshal’s office in New Hampshire and and ask them to locate Brown.

The number is 603-225-1632.
“Take down names, employee numbers, dates/times to reference the call, whatever you can to have a record! DEMAND for answers! They’ve got Ed like they always wanted, why isn’t he handed over to the prison? WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO HIM? HOW IS HE BEING TREATED?!?!,” reads the website.
