By now, we have all heard of the incident in Waukesha, WI where a man plowed his vehicle into a small town Christmas parade, killing six people and wounding over fifty others, some critically.
The defendant, Darrell Brooks Jr., has a long history of violent criminal activity going back years and involving multiple convictions in multiple states. In early November, he was arrested again on a domestic violence charge.
John Chisholm is the Milwaukee County District Attorney who has championed “progressive justice reform” and has widely bragged that he was an early leader in the movement. His office recommended $1000 bail for Brooks in his most recent violent crime charge and Brooks was released just last Friday, two days before he plowed into the parade….after reportedly fleeing another domestic violence dispute.
A felon with a long history of violent crime, let out on bail of $1000 (why was he allowed bail at all?!) and within 48 hours, that felon had been involved in another domestic violence dispute and using his vehicle for a mass murder. THAT is progressive justice reform.
