Video Shows Feds Firing On Ed Brown's Dog Walker Last Summer
Supporters question why only key portion of video was switched to lower resolution

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.
