Let’s just say this right off the bat: If the suspect in the Waukesha incident were a white man with a substantial record and not a black man with one, the ‘mainstream media’ would be screaming bloody murder in wall-to-wall coverage for the next month, declaring him to be a ‘white nationalist-racist-supremacist-mass murderer.’
That said, there are even more aspects to this case that the black suspect who was arrested on Monday in connection with allegedly killing five people and injuring more than 40 others by striking them and running them over with an SUV had already been in jail for previously striking a woman with a vehicle.
You literally cannot make this up.
The Epoch Times has more details:
Darrell Brooks, the suspect accused in Sunday’s Wisconsin Christmas parade massacre, was charged earlier this month with running over a woman with his car, although he later posted $1,000 bond, according to court records.
Brooks may be charged with five counts of intentional homicide, Waukesha Police Chief Daniel Thompson said in a Monday news conference. According to witnesses and footage, a red SUV careened down a parade route, striking dozens of people, including children and elderly participants on Saturday evening.
“We actually had a squad and barricades up, and [Brooks] drove right through,” Thompson noted regarding the Saturday incident. “When an officer tried to engage and stop the threat, he still continued through the crowd for some distance.”
Earlier this month, Brooks, 39, who is a career criminal according to several reports, was released from jail on a paltry $1,000 bond after he allegedly ran over a woman as she walked across a gas station parking lot in Milwaukee County, a criminal complaint says. The woman told police that she is the mother of Brooks’ child, the complaint added.
“Officers observed tire tracks on her left pants leg,” the complaint says.
In addition, “Brooks was charged with obstructing an officer; second-degree recklessly endangering safety with domestic abuse assessments; disorderly conduct with domestic abuse assessments; and misdemeanor battery with domestic abuse assessments, according to the complaint,” The Epoch Times adds.
This time, he’s been “charged with five counts of intentional homicide, which is the legal equivalent of first-degree murder in Wisconsin, and carries a life sentence upon conviction,” CBS Chicago reported.
“Online court records showed Brooks has two open criminal cases in Milwaukee County. And at least six other convictions for violent behavior,” the outlet added.
Here is an ongoing list of charges and convictions, many of them for violence:
— In 1999, he was found guilty on substantial battery-intend bodily harm, a felony;
— In 2003, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest;
— In 2005, Brooks spent a brief stint in prison for obstructing a police officer, which was also a misdemeanor;
— In 2006, he was convicted of a sex crime;
— In 2010 he was found guilty on felony strangulation and suffocation charges in Wood County;
— In 2011, Brooks was also found guilty of resisting and obstructing an officer.
The fact is, Brooks is the poster boy for the 1990s-era “three strikes, you’re out” laws that saw repeat offenders locked up for lengthy prison sentences because they proved over and over again they were incapable of peacefully existing in a civil society by following the rules for our society.
In the past several years, however, thanks to left-wing destroyers of civil society like George Soros, “criminal justice reform” district attorneys have increasingly refused to hold suspects to account, including repeat offenders like Brooks — which is why they continue to be free to prey upon one victim after another.
And now, this animal may be guilty of killing five more people and permanently injuring several others, though he should not have been free to roam the streets in the first place.
Our country needs a major reset when people like Brooks, regardless of their ethnicity, are allowed to continue victimizing innocent people.
