This past week Ali Muhammad Brown was sentenced to 36 years in prison after being found guilty of armed robbery in New Jersey. However, Brown’s case isn’t one of simple violence. The Seattle Muslim has also been accused of four separate counts of murder and of a charge of terrorism.
A Seattle man charged with killing four people in Washington and New Jersey in 2014 to protest U.S. foreign policy was on a federal terrorism watch list and wrote in his journal that he planned to follow the Islamic State group and “learn the ways of jihadis,” a New Jersey state prosecutor said Wednesday.
The details came out before Ali Muhammad Brown was sentenced to 36½ years in prison on an unrelated armed-robbery case.
The armed robbery occurred during the same time period as four killings now linked to Brown, three in Washington and one in New Jersey. Brown is still awaiting trial in all four slayings. He also faces a charge of terrorism, the first and only time New Jersey’s state terrorism statute has been used…
Authorities in Seattle have said that Brown described himself to detectives as a strict Muslim who was angry with the U.S. government’s role in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan because of the deaths of innocent civilians and children.
What makes Brown’s case interesting as a case study in modern American law, is that he is a perfect example of the dangers we face in allowing unvetted Muslim migration from Syria and Iraq (and other Muslim nations).
While Brown was not a migrant, he was already known to our government and even being monitored as a possible terrorist supporter. Even with this extra level of scrutiny, observation and watchfulness, our government could not stop this man from committing terrible violence on two different sides of the country! If the government is unable to even monitor the actions of one “known” terrorist sympathizer, how can we expect them to be able to protect us from the tens of thousands (hundreds of thousands if President Obama and John Kerry get their way) of unvetted Muslim refugees?
Our intelligence agencies have made it clear that they cannot vet every single refugee (See the FBI saying it here and Homeland Security saying it here) being allowed entrance into our nation, but still the Obama administration continues down this dangerous road. The Brown case is simply one more example of how liberals callously endanger American lives with government incompetence.
