The parents of a New Jersey college student gunned down by a self-proclaimed homegrown jihadist who is a suspect in three other murders told Fox News, in an exclusive interview Wednesday, that they don’t believe the killer acted alone, but are unsure if their son is a victim of domestic terror.

Allison and Michael Tevlin, whose son Brendan was shot eight times June 25 while idling in his Jeep at a red light in West Orange, told Greta Van Susteren they don’t know what to make of suspect Ali Muhammad Brown’s claim that he killed their son to avenge U.S. military action in Iraq and Afghanistan. The murder has been characterized by some as a case of domestic terror, but it remains unclear if Brown, who was once linked to a suspected terror financing scheme, was a “lone wolf” inspired by jihadist rantings or part of a larger plot.

“I don’t think it makes that much of a difference at this time,” Allison Tevlin said on Fox News’ “On the Record w/Greta Van Susteren.” “I think he murdered Brendan and he murdered several others and he is an American. He did what he did. And like I said, he didn’t act alone, so I don’t know if I–we have all the information or enough information to make that kind of judgment; it’s not really for us to make that judgment.”

His suspected killer told police that murdering Brendan was a “just kill” and that he was seeking vengeance for Muslim deaths in “Iraq, Syria, (and) Afghanistan.” Brown, 29, is a convicted sex offender who has also been charged with killing three men in Seattle earlier in the summer.

Prosecutors in New Jersey, where Brown was arrested July 18, say Brown is a devout Muslim enraged by U.S. military intervention in the Islamic world, which he referred to as “evil.”

“During the interview, Brown also stated that, as part of his beliefs, if a ‘man sees evil, then he must take action against that evil,’” according to court papers.

Investigators in Essex County, N.J., have characterized Tevlin’s murder as a robbery that turned violent. Three other men, including Brown’s co-defendants Eric Williams and Jeremy Villagran, fled while Brown moved Tevlin’s body into the passenger seat and drove to a nearby apartment building where he abandoned it.

Brown was homeless and has a lengthy criminal history dating back more than a decade. He was arrested in Seattle in 2004 along with 13 other members of an alleged bank fraud ring, which federal investigators believed sent money to terrorist groups. A year later, he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, and was released with credit for time served.

  • This makes the question of whether he or any of these people have any real tangible links to AQ, ISIS, MB or any such groups a moot point. It even makes the existence or non-existence of such groups unnecessary. Any non-white Muslim anywhere is potential trouble.

    • phillyguy

      His Zionist court appointed lawyers are using the International Muslim ploy so he could be sent to a federal prison, treat it like that hate crime it really is and hang him on national TV

      • Beloved Comrade

        You know, there are some things the Chinese get right. This jihadist wanna- be would have been marched out to a field already and a bullet put in the back of his head, with the family billed for the cost of the bullet.

        • archer

          You are right, the fact that this bum was a multiple offender and even may have killed 3 others before this murder shows me what a joke our judicial system has become. The Chinese do have the right idea when it comes to things like this.

        • Cid Campeador

          THe Russians would have done the same!!
          They haven’t forgotten Beslan.

  • IstvanIN

    Excuses, nothing but excuses. This was simply a black on White racial hate crime. Nothing more. The government and press will go to lengths to cover up the fact we now live in South Africa.

    • Lord Sandwich

      Exactly.

      I don’t see him committing suicide.

      Suspected sex offender and murderer? Why is he not in Syria fighting alongside his people? Sounds like the perfect ISIS man to me.

  • phillyguy

    Yeah right, the prosecution says he was the head of the International bank fraud ring,, that dope has the IQ of a sponge he can’t even manage to put his shoes on in the morning,, the only thing to do is treat it like a hate crime that it is , he’s a black thug who randomly shot a white person , electrocute him on national TV

  • Ed

    Poor family I can’t imagine.

  • anony

    Why was he on the street and not in prison?

    The war continues. Yet another White casualty.

  • Kathy M

    But… but… this has nothing to do with race. It’s only Islam and nothing else. So says the two “anti-jihad” big mouths on the net. You know, the two who remain speechless on illegal immigration and amnesty. The two who pretend race doesn’t exist.

    • Max

      No, they say it isn’t even Islam. Nearly 100% of these “terror” activities are carried out by these 5th century pedophile worshippers but there is no connection to “Islam”.

      The genius depicted isn’t even one of these lunatic ideologues. He is just being black

  • bilderbuster

    The second I saw the photos on the tube I knew it was a race murder and this Black knew nothing about the young White man except that he was a young White man and therefore should be murdered.

  • So a Negro with strong murderous tendencies latches on to Islam to justify his crimes. It’s like the “Symbionese Liberation Army” that kidnapped Patty Hearst back in the 70s. In other words, an excuse for the black to wage war on the white.

    It’s past time for the press to tell the truth about black hatred of whites. But they won’t because they don’t want to wake up the sheeple, who are mentally incapacitated by their addictions to TV, movies, celebrity worship, the NFL, etc.

    • Beloved Comrade

      Yes, and he may get away with it too.

      Remember mass murderer Nidal Malik Hassan? His shooting spree was brushed off as “workplace violence” Hassan even received $278,000 while the victim’s families received NOTHING.

      • WhiteVeinKratom

        Yeah that one really ruffles my fur. “Workplace violence” my cotton tale! That was terrorism!

    • Jade1

      Oh they won’t say a word until it happens to them or their family.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Yet the media, anti-White DOJ and loud-mouth black activists claim how outrageous it is that so many black males are in the prison system.

    No sympathy for the White victims.

    Anyone hear about this case that happened the last week of July?

    Daniel Ruffin, 20, of Stuttgart, Arkansas, was walking his dog and was steps from him home when shot by thrill-seeking blacks.

    He died the next day in the hospital.

    With the shooter was the black Chief of Police’s own son, who was let go and deemed a “witness.”

    • Young Werther

      In my daddy’s day one did not call the police for such things, or report it. When my daddy was a young man family’s took care of such matters themselves. Many still do…and more will in the future.

  • Michael Whalen

    I’ll bet he has a white mother.

    Mark Steyn points this out in his book “America Alone”. One of the salient attractions of Islam is that if you are a violent thug, you don’t have to do any thing “icky” (I love that word), like help with the church bazaar, or be nice to gay people. You can continue to be violent thug, only now, you are doing it in the name of Allah, the merciful and beneficient. I paraphrased that very heavily, but that is the gist of the idea.

    • IstvanIN

      On other words you can be as depraved and inhumane as you want, derive joy from and feel good about it all at the same time.

      • Beloved Comrade

        You can gang rape all the White children you want while White adults look the other way.

        • Young Werther

          It doesn’t happen to the child of say…a Hells Angel does it?

          • none of your business

            The Angels were the first group the feds went after when the RICO laws were passed. They are long gone.
            As a former LEO from the Ca. Bay Area where they were very very active I can tell you that they were not racially conscious at all except when imprisoned to segregate themselves from the blacks.
            They made extremely good livings from drug production, drug dealing and massage parlor prostitution,
            They were common criminals. They often went up to the Sacramento Delta, Russian River and attacked and beat vacationing Whites who were unprotected in the camping areas.
            As pimps, they were pretty vicious. They saw nothing wrong with rape, they did a lot of rapes.
            Even in Oakland, I do not think they ever went after blacks.
            Compared to the black ebonic criminals whose every other word is MF or n****r they were always gentlemen when dealing with me. They also supported their children. I really liked them because they spoke English in a normal tone of voice and could grasp what I told them.
            But they are long gone and were never, never race aware. Almost all their victims were White..

          • Young Werther

            I have done some research for articles about this, and I would have to say I would not feel it necessary to disagree with anything you have said. I would only add they still appear busy in courts protecting their patents/copyrights from and in the fashion industry world, and as far as being *race aware*…it appears the *need* for the *question* was pretty much essentially unnecessary on any level except for one. So you think they are *long gone*, do you…hmmmmm.

          • Young Werther

            Certainly never high tea or churchy type…

          • Young Werther

            I must say their treatment of women leaves much to be desired by civilized standards, but then again the types of women attracted to the biker type…well it sort of goes hand in hand doesn’t it?

    How about looking in the mirror you evil POS. I hope he gets raped to death in prison by the Aryan Brotherhood.

      I don’t think he should be raped to death. Do you really want a European man to penetrate him?

    Why are they always so brutishly ugly and hateful looking and their victims invariably so clean and wholesome looking? Is it just me who notices this?

    • Petronius

      It is the resentment and rebellion of the stupid, ugly, unclean, twisted, and deformed against everyone and everything that is beautiful, healthy, upright, strong, and decent in the world.

      • LHathaway

        Haven’t you heard, everything decent in this world has been proclaimed to be evil.

        • Samuel Hathaway

          Woe to them who call good evil and evil good, as the Bible tells us. We are living in the days where we see this everyday.

      • Bantu_Education

        An attractive young English couple were butchered on a beach in Thailand the other day. The girl was very pretty and blonde – she was killed by a blow to her face with an axe or similar weapon before or after being raped. The local police seem to be incompetent. They were first investigating some local migrant workers from Burma then they said they were looking for some British people who were with them earlier. I’m wondering what kind of “British” they were. The whole thing smells to me of a racial killing – and envy – why would they destroy her pretty blonde face?

        • Samuel Hathaway

          Two more deaths by diversity.

        • Petronius

          “Is it not true that every sufferer [i.e., the ill-constituted and inferior] instinctively seeks a cause for his suffering; more specifically, an agent, a “guilty” agent who is susceptible to pain — in short some living being or other on whom he can vent his feelings directly or in effigy, under some pretext or other? The release of aggression is the best palliative for any kind of affliction. The wish to alleviate pain through strong emotional excitation is, to my mind, the true physiological motive behind all manifestations of resentment.”
          – F. Nietzsche “The Genealogy of Morals”

    • LHathaway

      They brought out the Trayvon photo? It comes in white.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      Yes, another wholesome, white young man killed in cold blood all as a sacrifice to the hideous cult of diversity.

    What kind of area is West Orange NJ, I wonder?

  • IKUredux

    He is just another black loser, of which we have millions in this so-called country. He is just another low I.Q. P.O.S. When the hell do we decide as a “country” that enough is enough. These black citizens of this country don’t fit in. They have never fit in. And, in point of fact, they will NEVER fit in. They just don’t get it. My God, blacks have had four hundred years to fit into White America. They don’t fit in, do they? They will NEVER fit in. Why on God’s green Earth do we still insist that these semi retarded savages can fit into White America? Enough already with spending all our money on them. They will not ever equal Whites in test scores. NOT EVER!!!! Why oh why are we Whites being punished for black inferiority? It is NOT OUR FAULT AS WHITE PEOPLE THAT BLACKS ARE STUPID!!!!! So why are we being made to pay with everything we own? WHY?We Whites did not set out to make blacks stupid. We Whites did not set out to make blacks ignorant, cannibalistic, violent savages. We Whites had nothing to do with how blacks have turned out. So, why in the hell are we still responsible for them? It’s time for another race to step up to the plate. Batter up, Chinks!

    • Young Werther

      The killer will go to prison and be a hero and leader there. He will have it made for life. But *The Family* can always make the decision to eliminate him.

      According to John Derbyshire, 40 percent of blacks have IQs of 80 and below.

  • KenelmDigby

    Whatever else you might say about blacks – and Brown’s claim to be a ‘jihadi’ must be taken with a truckload of salt, blacks, generally, are shameless liars who will lie and lie and lie about everything and anything, in order to gain temporal advantage for themselves, and also that the rate of mental illness, in particular of the most dangerous and psychotic conditions such as schizophrenia and psychopathy is absolutely enormous.
    Most likely the murder was motivated by pure race hatred, nothing more and nothing less, plus the opportunity, as it arose, to steal a car.

    And this “thing” was still loose on the streets where it could prey upon innocent people just going about their normal lives? WHY??

    Allison and Michael Tevlin, whose son Brendan was shot eight times June 25 while idling in his Jeep at a red light in West Orange.

    Compare the two pictures in the article above. One is a clean-cut, average WHITE American college kid, who was gunned down while sitting at a red light. The other is a barely human looking BLACK thug with an EXTENSIVE criminal record. There are times when “an eye for an eye, a life for a life” seems to be the only sensible course of action to take if we want to preserve justice in this country.

    Back in the early 80s, I started to understand that if whites continued to allow all this stuff, we’d be dead. Well, we are still soft, complacent and dumb, but worse.
