C.R.E.S.T. Wife defies judge's order, returns to holed-up husband

Federal marshals will not risk an armed confrontation at the home of
Plainfield tax evaders Ed and Elaine Brown, despite a new warrant for
Elaine Brown's arrest, U.S. Marshal Steve Monier said yesterday.

"We're just not going to go there and create an armed standoff,"
Monier said yesterday. "We're not playing that game."

A federal judge signed a petition yesterday to arrest Elaine Brown,
who has been under court order to stay away from her husband and
their luxurious hilltop home in Plainfield. Elaine Brown violated
probation by returning to the house Tuesday afternoon.

"She wanted to be with her husband. That's it," Ed Brown explained in
a brief telephone interview yesterday.

The couple had been apart for more than a month. In all that time,
authorities say, Ed Brown has not left his house, where he was joined
last month by friends and armed protesters who support his crusade
against the federal income tax.

In a series of interviews, he has said he is prepared for a Waco-
style standoff with government agents who would dare to swarm his
property.

The U.S. Marshal's Office has been authorized to arrest Ed Brown
since Jan. 12, when he stopped showing up for trial at U.S. District
Court in Concord. Both Browns were found guilty the following week.
Their sentencing is scheduled for April.

Monier said the Marshal's Office has been talking with Ed Brown by
telephone every day in hopes of finding a peaceful resolution.

"I will characterize our conversations with him this way: They have
been amicable, low key and non-confrontational ," Monier said.

Until this week, Elaine Brown had been staying with her son in
Worcester, Mass. She was ordered to wear an ankle bracelet that
alerted probation officers each time she entered or exited her son's
house.

She was abiding by the terms of her probation until Tuesday, when she
did not return to the house in time for her curfew, according to her
supervising probation officer, Dan Gildea.

"I don't know why someone who is very intelligent continues to make
poor decisions," Gildea said.

Elaine Brown has been "very stressed out" since the trial, Gildea
said. The probation office suggested she go into counseling, he said,
but she declined the invitation.

Gildea said he urged her to obey her probation orders. She understood
the consequences of going back to Plainfield, he said.

Clearly, he said, she missed her husband.

"Love makes people do funny things," Gildea said.

A blog entry on the couple's MySpace page says Elaine Brown's return
was a surprise. The page, which is maintained by a friend,
says, "NOTHING is stronger then the bond of unconditional love, not
even the IRS!"

Last month, a jury found the Browns hid their income and did not pay
income taxes between 1996 and 2003. The jury also convicted Elaine
Brown, a dentist, of failing to pay adequate taxes for her employees.

Ed Brown is a retired exterminator. He has been a prominent figure in
anti-tax and anti-government circles for more than a decade,
including a stint as head of the U.S. Constitution Rangers, an
organization that opposes government encroachments into citizens'
lives.

He and his wife have maintained the law does not require citizens to
pay a federal income tax.

"We did what we did for the sake of our nation," he said
yesterday. "We didn't have to do this. We were ready to retire. But
instead of retiring, we decided to lay it on the line for the sake of
everybody."

The Browns are people who are exhibiting truthful behavior. It is too bad that more folks do not take the stand that they have taken. I am as guilty as the next guy. However, have we not volunteered to be bound to this system by Law? Does complaining to the "BEAST" that there "is no law" not give them an opportunity to create a law that we must comply with because of our original volunteerism?
Don't get me wrong. I did it to my own daughter because of my Power of Attorney over her. She is 8 years old. My parents, whom I love, did it to me.
My former ramblings were given to me by the info in the following audio. It takes about 50 minutes.
