More Ed Brown

You may have noticed an increase in my blog posts lately... my main client is away on vacation so things are slow around here. That gives me more time to surf the web and find more content to blog about :) Things should get back to normal in about 2 days.
moving on...

I spent some time this morning searching for news stories and updates to the Ed and Elaine Brown story... this couple that are refusing to come out of their house because they refused to pay taxes. It's a really interesting story for me, this is the stuff I love to read about and for some reason deep in my psyche I always root for the little guy's to overcome the corporate/government big guys. I've learned a lot and I can't say that I support what the Browns are doing 100%, but I am rooting for a peaceful solution. Unfortunately this has all the pre-warnings that this is going to end with someone getting hurt. What also amazes me about this story is that everything I've learned about it so far has mostly come from user created content on the internet. Youtube videos of press announcements (both from the Browns and From the Marshall's). I wonder how soon or IF this story will be picked up by the mainstream media. I know it's serious, but I had to laugh... One of the Browns Neighbors (or supporter depending on who you listen to) was arrested, and supposedly tasered and tackeled... why? Because he was out walking his dog, and literally stumbled upon the Marshalls hiding in the bushes doing survelliance. (It's in the Marshall's own words here (around the 3 minute mark)) I can only imagine a handful of police in camo and black masks looking through binoculars when this guy walks right up behind em and says "what are you guys doing in those bushes?" At which point they all jump, turn and tackel and taser the guy! :)
I'm going to be following this story as best I can via the internet.

I was going to post this other topic, but I think I'll create a new post...

Those cowards in darth vader costumes also fired to rounds at the man walking the dog(Danny Riley) that wizzed passed his head lucky for him they're bad shots!

Hey Elvis,
yeah, I heard Ed mention that during the press conference, but the Marshall didn't mention anything about shots fired. I would imagine that these guys are trained enough to not miss. I also find it a little difficult to believe that the authorities would fire upon an unarmed person. I know its happened before, but still I'm giving the benefit of the doubt to the Marshall's on this one. I also doubt the state troopers and Marshalls are anything but cowards.

this is danny riley. I was shot at so your benefit of the doubt is off key. I asked the The US marshall special operations unit sniper why he shot at me and he replied "I missed you on purpose". The fbi and mershalls told me over and over that they were rubber bullets to try and make me believe it. Now their "official word" is that no shots were fired. LIARS. Before I made my vid there was a story written on prisonplanet.com that a neighbor heard gun shots also backing up my story, Hey I know shots were fired I heard them and felt them whiz by my head, I have no reason to lie, we looked and looked for the casings but no luck, we believe he had a casing catcher or simple picked up his casings knowing he just broke the law. There you have it from the horses mouth as they say.

Wow. "Straight from the horse's mouth" as they say :) Thanks Danny for taking the time to explain the events firsthand to me. I also found your video explanation on google. I hope your case is over with, it sounds like if they had more on you, they would have done more, rather than let you go. At any time were you allowed to call for a lawyer?
Well, Thanks for the comment, and I'm glad you are OK.
