Jury Convicts Waukesha Parade Killer on 76 Charges

by Trevor Schakohl


A jury found the Waukesha, Wisconsin, Christmas parade massacre’s perpetrator guilty of six counts of first-degree intentional homicide Wednesday in a weeks-long trial plagued by his pervasive interruptions.

Darrell Brooks was convicted of six counts of first-degree intentional homicide while using a dangerous weapon, with verdicts for his 76 total charges being read at the time of publication, according to Law & Crime’s livestream. As the verdicts were read, Brooks sat silently at his table.

Brooks is set to be sentenced to life in prison, as legally required.

Brooks was already a convicted felon and out on bail, according to Fox 6 Milwaukee, when he drove an SUV through a crowd at Waukesha’s Christmas parade, killing six people.

A police officer testified that the driver of the SUV looked “emotionless” shortly before it struck people. An assistant police chief who went to the parade off-duty said the driver seemed “excited about what he was doing” as he watched the vehicle pass by.

Brooks often disrupted proceedings during the weeks-long trial, with Dorow ordering his removal from the main courtroom many times. His mother said in a pre-trial WTMJ interview that he perpetrated the killings at the parade, predicting he would look “manic” in representing himself.

Judge Jennifer Dorow claimed Friday that the trial case had easily been “the most challenging” of her career, only for Brooks to later pound on his table and aggressively stare at her. Dorow subsequently called an early break, stating, “Frankly, it makes me scared.”

    This whole incident exemplifies of complete bias of the ministry of propaganda. If he was a white male who ran over and killed multiple black people there would have been a never ending stream of verbal diarrhea from the MSM. But in reality the MSM barely covered the crime or the trial. This despicable individual deserves the death penalty to say the least.
