The Man Who Let Brooks Out On $1,000 Bail


Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm has launched an investigation into what he called the “inappropriately low” bail set for Darrell Brooks, Jr., the suspect in the deadly Christmas parade attack in nearby Waukesha, Wis. Sunday afternoon.

Brooks, who faces five counts of first-degree intentional homicide, was freed after posting $1,000 bail even though he faces serious felony charges in two different open cases in Milwaukee. In the most recent, he allegedly “ran [the victim] over with his vehicle” in what proved to be an ominous foreshadowing of the horror he allegedly inflicted just days later.

“The bail recommendation in this is not consistent with the approach of the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office toward matters involving violent crime,” Chisholm said in a news release, “nor was it consistent with the risk assessment of the defendant prior to setting of bail.”

This is a nauseating lie More

  1. It will be (at least) SIX counts.

    At the state’s complaint hearing yesterday, it took TEN minutes for the prosecution’s atty to read through Brooks’ prior arrest and jail record. 21 years of hand slaps, low bail/no bail, probation, etc. Even when he was arrested on failing to show, he was caught with a stolen hand gun — another felony — and served minimal time. Hey! he’s black. That’s what we get from a very broken criminal justice system. Black Lives Matter, don’t you know?

    An 8 year-old died and other children were severely injured, and hundreds of children were terribly traumatized because more than one judge let him off with a slap to his wrist.

  2. After the state recommended $5MM bail, Brooks’ defense was asked to weigh in by the judge. His lawyer’s feeble response was to consider that his client is indigent. Black AND impoverished. Golly. I wonder how often that plea has been used. He probably should have gone for the “Oppressed” angle.

  3. You all know the people who were behind this are going to have to be killed in the end because they aren’t going to stop until they destroy us all. It’s us or them.

  4. This is entirely on him, which is why not just anyone can sit in judgement of criminals. If you cannot recognize evil when it stares you in the face, you shouldnt be a judge.

  5. Recidivist perp names freed for no reason from the article…
