Punish Senseless Hate Crime

Target: Mark Larson, Chief of Staff for King County Jail in Seattle

Goal: Encourage death penalty for senseless hate crime by sex offender

Ali Muhammad Brown, 30, of New Jersey was taken into custody following a horrific hate crime he carried out against two gay men in Seattle. Dwone Anderson-Young and Ahmed Said were shot, execution style, and dumped on a lonely street nearby one of the victim’s homes, just for being gay.

Reports indicate that Ali Muhammad met the men on a popular gay social networking site and decided to murder them because of their homosexuality, minutes after leaving a  well known gay bar in Capitol Hill. A friend of victim Anderson-Young said that he was ‘creeped out’ by Ali Muhammad and immediately declined a ride home. Unfortunately, for Anderson-Young and Said, their young lives would be cut short as Ali Muhammad systematically gunned down the two men using a pistol he stole from the mother of his children.

Prosecutors of Seattle’s Police Task Force have also stated that the victims, Anderson-Young and Said, were unarmed and that the crime was not motivated by robbery or drugs. One King County Prosecutor called the slayings “…extremely violent, senseless and unprovoked.” Brown, who was caught after surveillance video of him robbing a convenience store surfaced, is also a sex offender and conspirator, having been convicted of supporting terrorist regimes in Somalia.

Ali Muhammad Brown has repeatedly proven why he is a danger to society and should not be spared, in any way, for his latest criminal act. Sign the petition to encourage Seattle’s Mark Larson, Chief of Staff for King County Jail to uphold the death penalty for Brown’s vicious hate crime.


Dear Mark Larson,

Sex offender, conspirator, con-artist and now homophobe Ali Muhammad Brown has been on a violent and immoral rampage since 2002, following a conviction for supporting terrorist regimes in Somalia. Now, he is guilty of senselessly murdering two innocent gay men because of their sexualities. Unmotivated by robbery, drugs, or any other crime, Brown took the lives of two young, thriving men in a pointless act of violence. Ali Muhammad Brown’s propensity for violence and unapologetic attitude have earned him, in my opinion, a death penalty sentence and I encourage you to uphold it.

Ali Muhammad Brown’s premeditated and frankly sick act of brutality on Dwone Anderson-Young and Ahmed Said is proof that, although we’ve come a very long way in the fight for equality and respect, there are still individuals who feel that gay people are better off dead. As an LGBT supporter and activist, I urge you to recognize the heinousness of Ali Muhammad Brown’s crime and consider the maximum punishment.

  1. I am vehemently opposed to the death penalty and wait pessimistically for the day when it is ended permanently. I am not only unwilling to sign a petition “encouraging” an official to seek it, I do not see the point of sending this to Chief of Staff for the King County Jail in Seattle, a person who has no jurisdiction to make the attempt. He is not the prosecutor.

    While Mr. Anderson-Young and Mr. Said indeed deserve justice (as if there is such a thing in the US), I do not support the notion that we cannot achieve equality if we don’t kill someone else. The persistence of capital punishment is one of the worst things about America, not one of the best.

  2. Robert Ortiz says:

    While I am not a fan of capital punishment I believe that Ali Muhammad Brown needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law, whatever that may be in this case considering the circumstances and what Washington allows. The hatred and victimization of the LGBT community must stop and Ali Muhammad Brown should be made an example to show how dangerous, stupid and harmful hatred of any kind is.
