The Browns Go To Jail

Browns Were Duped By “Trojan Horse” Marshals Posing As Supporters
Open door policy allowed officials to walk in and arrest Ed and Elaine Brown

Tax protesters Ed and Elaine Brown were tricked by US Marshals who entered their home yesterday afternoon posing as supporters . The Marshals entered the house at a time when there were no other supporters present and catching the Browns off guard were able to arrest them and remove them from the property.

As we reported earlier this morning, the speculation was that the Browns were infiltrated and tricked before being violently subdued as authorities refuse to provide any details behind their arrest beside the fact that they did not peacefully surrender.

It is still unclear whether any violence was used to apprehend the Browns, all that is known is that they are now in federal custody and have begun serving their 63 month sentence.

Marshals spoke at a press conference at the federal courthouse in Concord NH today.

WMUR News 9 carried the conference:

U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier has commented:

“Ultimately, this open-door policy that they seemed to have which allowed the Browns to have some supporters bring them supplies, welcome followers and even host a picnic –this proved to be their undoing. They invited us in. We escorted them out.”

A small team of marshals pulled off the ruse, arresting the Browns without incident on the couple’s front porch, Monier told local press .

Reports are suggesting that weapons have been seized at the property including “explosive devices”, and “booby traps” which were placed in the woods. Monier added that the Browns may face further charges relating to the weapons.

Monier also added that officials have encountered no retaliatory action from supporters of the Browns as yet, but warned that any further supportive actions at this time could result in federal charges.

    Dear _______

    Please! Keep us in your prayers. The picture is the first. Thank you thank you thank you. I need pictures badly. I have nothing and my heart is breaking. We [Ed & Elaine] have never been apart this long before and I am really concerned for her.

    They hurt me permanently. The damage will be with me for the rest of my life.
    I pray to God they didn’t do anything to my wife. Or any of the other guys.

    Please put the word out. We seek reliable counsel to work with us. Maybe on the internet you might get the interest up.

    I’m curious as to what Larry B Craft has to say about this case.

    My wife and I are generous people and all the cases we wish to file in the name of the law are extremely winnable cases. Trust me! I am not cavalier about this. After what they [sic] already done to me, I have no illusions.

    God Bless.
