Well....if it turns out to be this person, he'll, at least, spend the rest of his life in prison.

I work in the criminal courts. A not inconsiderable amount of people have records like what I've just read. A pretty typical rap sheet for a career criminal. It can be said that, at times, there's too much leniency.

By no means, though, are the majority of people who grew up in lower socioeconomic conditions criminals.

There are indications the Waukesha suspect was fleeing another incident when he drove into the parade route, according to multiple law enforcement sources familiar with preliminary investigation findings.  So far, there is no known connection to international or domestic terrorism, and it does not appear to be connected to the recent verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial in Kenosha, Wisconsin, the sources said.

Quote:
Two law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized the discuss the matter publicly, identified the person as 39-year-old Darrell Brooks.

Online court records showed a person named Darrell Brooks, with a birthdate making him 39, has two open criminal cases in Milwaukee County.  In one case, filed Nov. 5, he is charged with resisting or obstructing an officer, reckless homicide, disorderly conduct, bail jumping and battery.  Records show $1,000 bond was posted on Friday.

In the other case, filed in July 2020, Brooks is charged with reckless endangering and illegal possession of a firearm.

Investigators were questioning the person in custody about an earlier crime, which one of the officials described as an argument involving a knife.  The official cautioned the investigation was still in the early stages.

A press conference is scheduled for later today (2021-11-22).

It doesn't matter all that much whether there's a connection to Rittenhouse, or to terrorism, or to whatever----the driver of the red SUV killed at least five people, and injured at least 40 people.

It doesn't matter if the driver of the red SUV was black, white, green, or polka-dotted----he killed at least five people, and injured at least 40 people.

Common sense states that there was at least some intent in this. He didn't just get there by accident, I don't believe. I believe he had to go through a bunch of barriers in order to get to Main Street. I know, from experience, that barrier set up in parade areas are very difficult to breach.

Of course, this impression is pending subsequent news.

The defendant's rap sheet, of course, shouldn't have been released.

Really.....it's sad and pathetic. A bunch of lives wasted because of some idiot who wanted to avoid jail (if this was the only motivation for this)

If this was the same person who sought to escape police chasing him, he probably would have been sentenced on the fleeing from police to a term concurrent with what he faced in his open case. In other words, he probably wouldn't have had to serve extra time for the new offense (fleeing from police). Prosecutors only seek consecutive sentences in extraordinary circumstances. This guy just seemed like a "run of the mill" sort of criminal----unless this occurred.

If you look at a sample of rap sheets, you will notice many "concurrent" sentences. They do this for administrative convenience, rather than a desire for some sort of "justice."

Belief and speculation are irrelevant.

Yeah....that's all well and good....but I never claimed it was anything other than "belief and speculation."

We have to look out for subsequent news. And we have to await the subsequent proceedings which will arise from this occurrence.

It is a fact, though, that it is a pity that at least five people had to be killed, and at least 40 people injured, by someone driving a red Ford SUV.

The police have officially identified the "person of interest" as being Darrell Brooks, Jr. His ID was found in the Ford SUV, and he was found in possession of a Ford key. It is not registered to him---but to a woman who lives in the same house as him.

Waukesha: Alleged Attacker Is a Convicted Pedophile, Repeat Felon and Self-Described Black Terrorist Who Preached Violence Against White People

Last night, a red Ford SUV plowed through a group of overwhelmingly white people at a Christmas parade in the town of Waukesha, which is west of Milwaukee.

Media reports have confirmed the identity of the alleged driver, Darrell E. Brooks, a registered sex offender who admitted in a video that he pimps children. The career criminal was released back into the streets on a paltry \$1000 bond despite being charged with bail-jumping and facing a plethora of violent felonies and misdemeanors just over two weeks ago, according to Wisconsin Court Records.


There will be hell to pay if things go south when he is on bail.

Mikah wrote:
Many immediately speculated that Brooks’ actions had a racial motive and could constitute an act of Black Lives Matter inspired terrorism.


Who hasn't "speculated" on this?
Best to wait for the facts to emerge.

Mikah wrote:
So far, officials have refused to comment on this matter. There are five deaths and 40 injuries being officially reported, with many of the victims being children.

A source local to the area told National Justice that the death tally may be higher (closer to eight), and that the overwhelming majority of victims appear to be white. These reports are unconfirmed.

What can be confirmed is that the virulently anti-white, Black Lives Matter supporting Soundcloud rapper Mathboi Fly is Brooks, as proven by the man’s distinctive neck tattoo.

Mathboi Fly’s lyrics emphasize black racial grievance, hatred of white people, and the open support of terrorism and crime. One professionally shot music video shows Brooks rapping alongside men brandishing firearms in front of the same SUV he allegedly used to run the Christmas revelers over.

A Mathboi song titled “Minnesota” obtained could provide clues on the rapper’s mindset.


Hate can wait for the facts to come in, if it is warranted.

Habitual criminal + unemployed = Rapper.

Considering he might be very at home in a prison, it makes you wonder why he seemed so desperate to avoid it. I'm sure whatever trouble he was in wasn't THAT bad to warrant what he did unless he was off his face of drugs which seems likely.
