Why Wasn't the Murder of 19 Year Old Brendan Tevlin Front Page News?

Gunned down by a gang of black Muslims isn't newsworthy?
Brendan Tevlin, 19. Killed for being an American
Both Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missiouri and Brendan Tevlin of Livingston, New Jersey were on their way home the night they were killed. Brown, 18 and with drugs in his system had just robbed a convenience store and assaulted a police officer while trying to take away his gun. Brendan Tevlin, 19 and a straight A student who had just finished his freshman year of college had just texted his mother he was on his way home.

Brown was shot by a Police Officer while apparently rushing the officer. Tevlin was shot dead in his car at an intersection by a gang led by Ali Muhammad Brown who believed the killing was justified because of U.S. policy in the Middle East.

Killers of Brendan Tevlin claim the murder was a "just kill" and "vengeance" for U.S. Middle East policy.
There weren't any riots after Tevlin was shot in June. No protest marches, no one trying to use the tragedy for fundraising or to register voters. Al Sharpton didn't show up to accuse blacks of waging a war on whites and Attorney General Holder didn't show up to commiserate on the danger we all face from terrorism. Neither did reporters flood into the New Jersey trying to ring every drop of blood from the scene.

The death of Brendan Tevlin went largely unremarked. Yet, in terms of the danger that faces each of us it is far greater than the tragedy which took place in Ferguson, Missouri.  But I suppose there's no political gain to be made by drawing attention to Tevlin's death!
