The Waukesha parade massacre suspect, Darrell Brooks Jr., was in court on Nov. 23, 2021, where he was charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide. A 6th victim has died, Jackson Brooks, 8, so he will be charged with a sixth count. At least 60 people were injured when Brooks plowed into the crowd at the Waukesha Christmas parade, authorities say.
Darrell Brooks’ Criminal Complaint
Waukesha County District Attorney Sue Opper said in court that Brooks has a criminal record in three states: Wisconsin, Georgia, and Nevada.
Brooks is a registered sex offender in Nevada, she said, but he’s been non-compliant with that state’s sex offender registry since 2016, and there is an active warrant for his arrest there as a result. She said he was also arrested in May 2021 for battery, family violence – while out on $500 bail in the first pending Milwaukee felony case.
Darrell Brooks’ criminal record is extensive: He has two open felony cases in Milwaukee County from 2020 and 2021 and a lengthy string of criminal arrests across multiple counties and states. He also has a social media history with posts about BLM and against Scott Walker and other politicians. He also had anti-police rhetoric. This thread rounds up the posts, which are now deleted.
