Residents of New Jersey were shocked and saddened this summer by the senseless shooting of a bright young man just home from college. When the killers were caught, the ringleader openly and repeatedly proclaimed the murder of 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin a “just kill” in furtherance of Jihad but also freely admitted the killings of three gay men in Seattle for similar reasons. There are few reports about this disturbing new “motive” for senseless killing beyond the blogosphere.
Via Rightly Wired: Katie Coyne — Brendan Tevlin, American Martyr, Murdered On U.S. Soil By Jihadist Killer
His obituary reads like an award ceremony, except that all of the achievements were his. A young Irish Catholic American, Brendan had completed his first year of college. He was an older brother to three, a Eucharistic minister, president of the Gaelic Club, and a talented bagpiper. In high school, Brendan was a member of the National Honor Society, Lacrosse Team, Ambassador’s Club, Student Council, Math Honor Society, and Spanish Honor Society.
Brendan would often volunteer to play his bagpipe at funerals, probably never imaging how soon seventy-five bagpipers would play to the hundreds of attendees at his own. By every account he was a charismatic, kind, and outgoing young man.
Brendan Tevlin, 19, was murdered by Ali Muhammad Brown, a Muslim terrorist, in an act of domestic terrorism.
Brown told authorities that murdering Brendan was a “just kill.” He was seeking vengeance for Muslim deaths in “Iraq, Syria, (and) Afghanistan.”
