Brendan Tevlin’s Jihadist Killer Pleads Guilty

Brendan Tevlin’s Jihadist Killer Pleads Guilty

The murder has received precious little national media coverage.

You may not have heard of Brendan Tevlin. His murder has received precious little national media coverage.

In September 2014, we asked, Why is the Brendan Tevlin murder so underreported?

On June 25, 2014, 19 year-old Brendan Tevlin hopped into his car to return home after spending the evening at a friend’s house. Minutes later, Ali Muhammad Brown approached the vehicle as it was stopped at a red light and fired ten rounds into the car, killing Brendan.

Originally, the teen’s murder was labeled an attempted robbery, allowing the media to remain silent.

Now, court documents have revealed that Brown’s motivation for killing Tevlin had less to do with thievery, and more to do with America’s pushback against Jihadist terrorism in the Middle East….

Whether or not Brendan’s murder was part of a systematic plot to introduce jihad to our shores or a self-directed act, is beside the point.

What’s important here is that an innocent American is dead because of Jihadist violence, and the media is keeping it relatively quiet.

We followed up a year later when terror charges were brought, Prosecutors: Brendan Tevlin’s murder was an act of terror:

After Brown was caught and arrested, he told police that the murder was a “just kill” and said it was an act of “vengeance” to compensate for U.S. military killings in the Middle East. He was vocal in his opposition to American intervention overseas, emphasized multiple times the vengeful nature of the act—and yet the media did nothing to expose what could have been the next act of violent jihad come to America.

The media’s malpractice in this case has been well documented, yet outlets for the most part have only just begun to scratch the surface of what happened. True justice for Brendan, however, is in reach. Last Thursday, Brown was indicted on charges of terrorism, murder, felony murder, carjacking, and robbery, as well as multiple weapons offenses….

Brown’s troubles with the law were not limited to calculated acts of violence. The FBI was investigating Brown as far back as 2004 in connection with activities at a terrorist training camp in Oregon.

Brown just pleaded guilty during jury selection in his trial. reports:

A Seattle man pleaded guilty Tuesday to killing a New Jersey teenager as part of a self-described jihad, authorities announced.

Ali Muhammad Brown, 34, admitted to shooting Brendan Tevlin, 19, in West Orange on June 25, 2014, according to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office. As jury selection was underway in his case, he decided to plead guilty, the prosecutor’s office stated.

Unprompted, Brown also admitted to three other killings in Washington before he came to New Jersey. Two of the people he killed because he thought they were gay and the other was part of a road-rage incident, according to the prosecutor’s office. He described the killings as part of a jihad.

Brown faces a mandatory life prison sentence. has more details of the killing spree:

Authorities have said Tevlin’s killing was part of a cross-country crime spree that began in April 2014 fatal shooting of a man in the Skyway area near Seattle, and continued with the killing of two other men that June in Seattle.

He then boarded a Greyhound bus for the East Coast, a sheriff’s detective from Washington state told NJ Advance Media in December.

Shortly before midnight on June 25, 2014, prosecutors said, Brown confronted Tevlin when he stopped the Jeep Liberty he was driving at a traffic light at the intersection of Northfield Avenue and Walker Road in West Orange.

Tevlin, who had just finished his freshman year at the University of Richmond, was returning home from playing video games at a friend’s house.

“I killed him,” Brown told defense attorney Albert Kapin Tuesday in front of the court as he entered the guilty pleas. “I shot him to death.”

Brown said he drove Tevlin’s SUV about a mile from the scene and took the teenager’s phone before fleeing.

i make NO pretense –
I-Slam is a desert robbers cult, a thieves excuse, which stole everything which is moral in Cutthroatran from the Torah and The new Testament.

they have even stolen the Har HaBayit/Temple Mount from the Jewish people.

Trump has shown the fakestinians for what they are and we MUST get the Taylor Force Act through congress —-
shame the Dhimmicrats and the RINOs to get it passed and enforced – no more money for the arab invader/murderers of the Holy Land/west bank/Judea+Samaria!

    Didn’t the christians try to steal it first? Didn’t they crusade to steal the whole middle east; multiple times?

    Didn’t the western european nations steal much of it and colonize it after WW I? Didn’t Israel get it initial recognition from europeans who did not live there and had absolutely no right to give anything to anybody?

    Did you learn any history or did they simply put you in vehicle and point at who you should kill? Your ignorance and your inability to do any self-reflection could give our military a bad name – assuming you were part of the 4th.

      Actually no, The Crusades were a direct response to aggressive actions by muslim armies. But don’t let facts or actual history get in the way of a good delusion.

      If you have to go back 1000 years to find an excuse, you have no case. What you do have is a mind set worthy of the Balkans – forget nothing, nurse grievances over the generations, and be sure to keep fighting the same battles over and over and over.

      After Emperor Constantine, North Africa and Egypt became mainly Christian. Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and the rest of the Middle East were mainly Christian. Turkey used to be Greek Anatolia. Afghanistan and all of the rest of the Silk route countries was Buddhist. Pakistan and Bangladesh used to be Buddhist and Hindu. Today all of these nations are Islamic for only one reason: violent Arab Muslim conquest.

      The estimated non-Muslim body count from jihad is 270 million ( ) .

      For most of Islam’s 1400 yr violent history its “Religion of pace” warriors have tried to conquer all of Europe (and still intends to) but was stopped only by a few key battle victories like that at Tours by Charles Martel in 732. If it were not for that victory and others by Christian forces, like at the Battle of Lepanto 1571 and the Battle of Vienna 1683, Western Civilization would have been eventually destroyed and probably the entire western world would be under Sharia Law.

All developed countries need to follow Japan’s example, and not tolerate any presence of Muslims in our countries. The pattern in Europe is very clear, both Islam and d most people from the Middle east are not compatible with our culture.

Not just the Press is obfuscating the crime here. Everybody is.

I don’t know what a “jihadi” is. It seems to be a bit of circular logic; a murderer calls his crimes a “jihad” and everyone is content to settle for that label. No, I don’t know what a jihadi is. But I know what a Muslim is.

All that crap we have to go through at airports—arriving hours early, hoping one’s name doesn’t show up on a secret “no fly” list, having everything rifled and searched, and still having to gang up on somebody who tries to set off a bomb mid-flight—all of it is because this planet suffers from Muslims.

But nobody wants to say it. I wonder why that is.

    Gremlin1974 in reply to tom_swift. | March 6, 2018 at 11:42 pm

    Jihad vs muslim? Basically there is no difference.

    Radical muslim = Someone who wants to cut off your head because of their psychotic evil quasi-religious beliefs.

    Moderate muslim = Someone who wants a radical muslim to cut off your head because of their psychotic evil quasi-religious beliefs, but lacks the courage to do it with their own hands.

You’d think the press would want to use this guy as evidence for more gun laws. But crickets are chirping . . .

Mohammad created Islam as a fanatical religion of war dedicated to world conquest and the imposition of a Sharia based tyranny. As such there is no significant difference between between it and Nazism or Communism. Why would we respect Muslims enough to want to listen to their lies?

Muslims are like locusts, reproducing excessively until anywhere they live are absolute hellholes.

The POS Brown would swing by that nasty head of hair at least 12 hours a day while doing his time.

Of course, none of this will result in any re-appraisal, or, soul-searching, by Dumb-o-crats and Leftists with regard to their unabashed enthusiasm for the Islamic ideology, and, their persistent and consistent efforts to whitewash its supremacist and totalitarian tenets and its intrinsic, belligerent tenor.

The Dumbs and the Left cannot reconcile or rationalize their support for Islam with that ideology’s long and continuing history of persecution of, and, maltreatment of, gays and women, two of the Dumbs’ professed cherished groups. Persecution by Muslims of Jews, Christians, Buddhists and Hindus, that has been going on for 1,400 years, continuing into the present? Well, the Dumbs seem okay with that.

    YellowGrifterInChief in reply to guyjones. | March 7, 2018 at 3:41 pm

    1,400 years? I guess you are not familiar with the behavior of christians over that period of time? Crusades, Inquisitions, forced conversions, justification for slavery, suppression of science, confiscation of property, maiming, genocide, cultural destruction by enforce assimilation

    Do you know that the torture of Jews during the Spanish Inquisition was justified because the torturers were saving the souls of the Jews? Their property was taken to further the cause.

    You don’t have a problem with the actions – only who is on the receiving end.

      Gremlin1974 in reply to YellowGrifterInChief. | March 7, 2018 at 5:52 pm

      Big difference while those people held sway for a time, such as Tokamada, they are not celebrated and the evil of their deeds was recognized and inspired change. In other words Christianity matured and evolved.

      Islam however hasn’t changed in over 2000 years. They still venerate a child rapist as their prophet. It is muslims that are killing gays by the thousands even today. It is islam that still advocates the mutilation and slavery of women to men.

      You know the really sad part is the best you can come up with it “The Crusades!” something that happened hundreds of years ago and then you even have to misrepresent those events. (You know like ignoring the 450 years of muslim attacks before the first crusade.) Yet you ignore the atrocities of a qusai-religion who’s barbarism hasn’t changed in over 1000 years.

      Some light reading if you are actually interested in facts.

        YellowGrifterInChief in reply to Gremlin1974. | March 7, 2018 at 9:34 pm

        You said 1400 years or I wouldn’t have gone back that far.

        I am not surprised you found a website with alternative facts and christians have done nothing since.

        I guess you don’t wish to be associated with worst of what has been done it the name of christianity, but you will tar all muslims with their worst. Bull Sheet.

          Gremlin1974 in reply to YellowGrifterInChief. | March 8, 2018 at 9:14 am

          Show me Christian atrocities that are happening today that are on the scale of the barbarism of modern day muslims and I will be happy to denounce them.

          The difference is you have to go back hundreds of years to find what I will admit is the worse of christianity in fact back to the dark ages. Muslim atrocities continue today much as they have for more than 1000 years.

          Also, those “alternative facts” are actual documented history, if you choose to learn it.

The motivation is much less important than the act. Where is justice in today’s fake justice system? A situation such as this, where there is no question as to what happened, or who is responsible, calls for a return to the justice of a hundred and fifty years ago, with a trial in the morning, and a public hanging at noon.

    YellowGrifterInChief in reply to Bisley. | March 7, 2018 at 2:23 pm

    You do understand that there have been documented, unambiguous cases where it was thought that

    there was no question as to what happened

    But it turned out there were valid questions?

buckeyeminuteman | March 7, 2018 at 12:43 pm

Killed 4 people and only faces a life sentence??? That is what is wrong with America. If Trump really wants to make America great again, death penalty should be on the table in all murder cases. Understand that not all crimes are federal crimes and he isn’t involved in state issues, but there has to be some way to make people pay for their disgusting crimes.

YellowGrifterInChief | March 7, 2018 at 3:28 pm

Breaking News: ‘Liberal’ NPR just reported the sentencing. I guess it is reprehensible that it took until 3/7/18 3:00 PM.

NYTimes: Man on ‘Jihad’ Admits to Killing 4 in Cross-Country Binge By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MARCH 6, 2018, 6:05 P.M. E.S.T. Wow, they beat your article by 3 1/2 hours!

My god, he used a gun and not a bomb.

This is clearly a condensed version of this serial killer’s cross-country rampage, but I find it disturbing that he slipped through Washington law enforcement’s hands so easily, especially since it took his confession to link him to other crimes. I realize random killings are difficult to investigate, but I still question the expertise of police in Washington.
