Following are some excerpts from the kutv.com article as found from a link in commentary on Keep and Bear Arms.
"(CBS) CONCORD, N.H. A federal jury found Plainfield couple guilty of tax evasion Thursday. The husband wasn't in court for the verdict, because he has barricaded himself in his hilltop home, saying he is prepared for an armed standoff...."
..."I'm in my house," he said Wednesday morning by phone. "I won't leave it." ...
..."If somebody comes at your house with guns to arrest you and you've committed no crimes, what would you do," he asked.
"Most Americans," Brown told The Associated Press, "would cower and cringe and raise their hands and surrender like a good little slave."
..."I won't. Under no circumstances. I do not tolerate cowardness, oppression, bulliness, and I certainly don't tolerate a federal agency that has absolutely zero jurisdiction in my state, never mind in my county, in my town." ....
In the home on Tuesday, Brown told supporters and reporters he has weapons and has called for supporters to converge on his property to help him resist the tax charges.
"You attack my property, it's going to get really violent," Brown told the Concord Monitor on Tuesday. "I don't care who it is."
Applaud and admire the stance that Ed Brown has taken. And hope that there are quite a few American citizens that will stand up in support of him and his wife. We The People MUST stand up to the perverse edicts being issued by our usurping government(s). Am not totally familiar with all of the legal issues surrounding this case. But, I am well aware that most of our governments in the United States have grossly exceeded their Constitutional authority. And that it is not only our Right, but our duty to question supposed 'authority'. As well as to contest plainly unconstitutional wrongs being perpetrated by government. Especially one that was meant to be made of, by and for We The People.
May God bless and help Ed and his wife through this ordeal. And, I pray this situation doesn't become another travesty of justice such as Ruby Ridge or Waco. Hope that everyone will follow this ongoing event and rally behind what Mr. Brown is trying to accomplish. Which, I believe, is to stand up to an increasingly oppressive and tyrannical government. Our laws were meant to be made with the consent of We The People. And, I've discovered quite a few local, state and federal laws across this country. In which it would justly seem unreasonable that any Free (supposedly) people would consent to them. Hope that there are fellow citizens that will follow this case and that they will express their concern loudly. For that will make it more difficult on the perverse in our government whom desire to teach Mr. Brown a 'lesson' by a show of their (supposed) power.
