It's a crime that they had a "Christmas Parade" before Thanksgiving.

Other than that, no act of terror surprises me anymore.

Saw this story developing last night and woke up to the news of the dead. Also woke up to overcast and rain so my mood was pretty dark at my TMS session this morning. I’m hopeful this treatment alleviates my crippling meds resistant depression, but it won’t remove the sickness from the world around me. How do people without depression respond to this kind of darkness?

Waukesha attack: Darrell Brooks Jr identified as suspect after five killed at Christmas parade (yahoo.com)

Waukesha attack: Darrell Brooks Jr identified as suspect after five killed at Christmas parade

The suspect who allegedly plowed into a Christmas parade in Waukesha was released on bail just two days before the deadly attack.
Darrell Edward Brooks Jr, 39, was taken into custody on Sunday night after a red Ford Escape SUV drove into a the parade in the Wisconsin city, killing five and injuring more than 40 people, the Associated Press reported.
The police have not yet released the suspect’s name and have only said they have a “person of interest” in custody.


Sources told NBC News the driver may have been fleeing a knife fight at a nearby park just before the car barrelled into the parade on Waukesha’s Main St at 4:39pm local time.

According to Milwaukee County court records, Brooks has a lengthy criminal record and had only been released from jail on Friday.
Records show Brooks was arrested on 5 November on charges of domestic abuse, resisting an officer, and second-degree recklessly endangering safety, disorderly conduct and felony bail jumping.

He pleaded not guilty to all counts and was released two days before the deadly Christmas parade attack after posting the $1,000 bond.


Brooks has another open felony case for second-degree recklessly endangering safety and possession of a firearm as a convicted felon from July 2020.

He has convictions dating back to 1999, according to Wisconsin court records.
Brooks is also a hip-hop musician performing under the name MathBoi Fly.
On a since-deleted social media profile, Brooks described himself as an “Underground Hip-Hop/Rap/Drill recording artist/producer/writer/actor”.

Brooks had been posting on social media about the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, which concluded in Kenosha on Friday about 50 miles south of Waukesha.

A preliminary investigation has indicated the attack was not linked to terrorism or Friday’s verdict in the Rittenhouse trial in Kenosha, sources told NBC News.
Police squads were seen outside Brooks’ home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Sunday night and his name was reportedly heard over police scanners.

Another outstanding example of Black Lives that Matter.   And just in case you ain't black or in on all the latest variants of black people of African descent chanting while dancing around a fire and shaking spears, pysching themselves up to go out and kill a lion as some sort of manhood ritual,
Drill is a style of trap music defined by its dark, violent and nihilistic lyrical content and ominous trap-influenced beats.
As further explanation,
Trap is a subgenre of hip hop music that originated in the Southern United States during the early 1990s. The genre gets its name from the Atlanta slang word "trap", a house used exclusively to sell drugs.

I guess that makes him a scumbag too, eh, Jarl?  Good thing for him that scumbag-exterminator Kyle Rittenhouse wasn't at the parade, huh?

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?

I don’t think you’ll be seeing the boy Kyle at any large gatherings for a long time; I suspect he’s a little gun shy now.

Career opportunities that’s a good possibility but protests I don’t think you’ll see him there.

Are you kidding? He’ll be at Trump’s next brownshirts rally, I’m sure of it.

Maybe if it’s a paid position and there’s not too much risk involved. Trump’s money is as good as any other arrogant elite. At that level, they all have huge egos. That’s why somebody like Ronald Reagan was so unique, somebody without an ego. However, when you’re poor, you can’t be too picky about whose money you take; anyone who doesn’t believe that should try being poor.

But if you remember BSG, it was the left that was violent first. You member trump supporters, older people, assaulted by gangs of leftists.

Considering he's a multiple murderer, he's definitely a scumbag. Too bad nobody shot him before he drove through a bunch of children.

Youtube seem to have removed his "interesting" rap video.

Does anyone now see a racial motivation; does that qualify the attack as a racially motivated hate crime?
