“It was probably self-defense.” Democrat activist comments on the events in Waukesha
Of a man who ran into the crowd at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wiscosin, she wrote: “It was probably self-defense” ….
Darrell Brooks, 39, was arrested shortly after driving a speeding car into participants of the Waukesha Christmas Parade. In front of his house was a Ford Escape with a battered bumper and a dented hood.
Darrell Brooks has been in conflict with the law since his youth. He has been arrested many times for beatings, domestic violence and resisting police. Since 1999, he has committed 16 crimes. Just before the tragedy happened, he got into a domestic row with a knife. When the police were called to the scene, he got into the car and drove away.
The suspect was charged with five counts of intentionally manslaughter. He is due to appear in court for the first time on Tuesday, where the charges will be formally heard.
Waukesha Police Commissioner Dan Thompson said there was no evidence that Darrell Brooks’s actions were related to terrorism. There is also no indication that the perpetrator knew anyone who walked in the parade.
Among the five killed, four were women aged 52 to 79 and an 81-year-old man. Nine of the people staying in hospitals are in a serious condition, mostly children.
