(DCWatchdog.com) – In a development that has shocked and outraged the families of the victims in yesterday’s Christmas Parade massacre – when a red sport utility vehicle was allegedly driven at a high rate of speed by career criminal Darrell Brooks into the middle of the parade killing five and injuring dozens – a prosecutor has now admitted that Brooks was released on a ridiculously low bail just two days before the parade massacre.
According to the conservative National Review publication, “Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm has called for an investigation into the ‘inappropriately low’ cash bond offered to alleged perpetrator Darrell Brooks Jr.”
Before Sunday’s massacre, Brooks was in jail awaiting trial on charges including second-degree reckless endangerment and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
According to the Wisconsin courts website, Brooks’s criminal history includes domestic abuse, battery, disorderly conduct, recklessly endangering safety, bail-jumping felony, and resisting or obstructing an officer.
Yet, despite his long history as a repeat criminal offender, Brooks was released last Friday on just $1,000 bail.
Less than 48 hours later, five Christmas Parade participants lay dead in the street, and dozens more were injured – many severely.
What do you think? What is your opinion about Darrell Brooks, who is now charged with murder in yesterday’s Christmas Parade massacre, having been released on $1,000 bail even though he’s a career criminal and was in jail facing serious criminal charges? Should the prosecutor and the state of Wisconsin be held liable for having released Brooks? Please share your reaction and thoughts by emailing [email protected]. Thank you, and have a good day.
