Waukesha Christmas Massacre: Career criminal out on bail

Darrell Brooks jr. received his first felony conviction in 1999 for aggravated battery.


Facts

Darrell Brooks jr. is expected to receive five counts of first-degree intentional homicide in addition to other charges against the 39-year-old longtime felon to the district attorney’s office in connection with the Waukesha Christmas Massacre.

A horror that left at least five people dead and 48 injured – including 18 children rushed to Children’s Wisconsin hospital in Milwaukee.

According to a spokesperson for Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm, Brooks has multiple pending cases in Milwaukee County -, including a 2020 case involving two counts of second-degree recklessly endangering and being a felon in possession of a firearm. The district attorney’s office said that bail was originally set at $10,000 and later reduced to $7,500.

Due to a court scheduling conflict that would have deprived Brooks of his right to a speedy trial, his bail was again reduced, this time to just $500, which he posted on Feb. 21, 2021.

In early November of 2021, Milwaukee authorities charged Brooks with another reckless endangering, felony bail jumping, battery, obstructing an officer, and disorderly conduct. 

What is painting out to be a history of assault with a vehicle. Brooks allegedly ran a woman over with what may have been the same SUV that wreaked havoc on the Christmas parade. He was released on a $1,000 cash bail on Nov. 11.

In a recent case, a woman told police that Brooks charged into her hotel room, shouted profanity at her, and took her cellphone before driving away. He allegedly circled back later, found her walking to a nearby gas station, and punched her after refusing to get into his car. When she started to walk away, he allegedly ran her over with his vehicle.

Details

Families, including children in strollers, bundled up in the chilly wind and lined the parade route on Main Street. 

The city’s live stream of the parade showed a marching band had just started playing “Jingle Bells” when a red SUV barreled into the parade from behind.

Another video captured by a paradegoer showed a young girl in a pink coat and hat dancing in the street as the SUV sped by, missing her by just a few feet.

A Waukesha police officer opened fire to stop the driver, and the officer’s gunfire struck no bystanders, the chief said. Thompson added he doesn’t believe any shots were fired from the vehicle.

Sadly, some individuals decided to compare this to the Kyle Rittenhouse trial with the social media manager for the DuPage Democrats in Illinois, Mary Lemanski, tweeted calling what happened “Karma.” 

Earlier this morning, DuPage Democrats came out and said they do not support hate in any form, referring to Lemanskk’s tweets.

Lemanski later resigned as the Social Media Manager.

Lemanski deleted all of her prior tweets.

An attorney for Brooks did not immediately return calls seeking comment. 

Local authorities set up a temporary memorial for the victims at Veterans Park just west of the scene.
