The attack that killed six people in Waukesha, Wisconsin has been labeled an accident by many in the media, but is that what the facts show?
A police officer who was working at the parade believes that the suspect, Darrell Brooks, committed an “intentional act to strike and hurt as many people as possible” as he witnessed his SUV as it “appeared to be intentionally moving side to side.”
This news came before a sixth person, a child, died as a result of the attack and Brooks was charged with a sixth count of homicide, ABC7 Chicago reported.
Investigators allege Darrell Brooks Jr., 39, turned into the parade route in Waukesha on Nov. 21 and swerved the vehicle side-to-side without slowing down as he struck dozens of people. Authorities announced later that night that five people had died…
The sixth charge is for Jackson Sparks, an 8-year-old boy who had been walking in the parade with his 12-year-old brother Tucker, who also was hurt in the crash.
Willy Medina, a spokesman for the state public defender’s office, which is representing Brooks, declined to comment on the added count.
Authorities say his motive remains unknown but have said he was fleeing the scene of another crime, however he was not being pursued by authorities.
As he is a career criminal he is likely often fleeing the scene of a crime as that appears to be the basis of his pathetic life story.
And with a criminal rap sheet a mile long this monster was free on $1,000 bail after allegedly striking a woman.
And yet you do not see Don Lemon on CNN crying over a known black nationalist. There is no Chris Cuomo talking about it as a terrorist attack. It has been washed away as if these six lives did not matter in the eyes of the media.
After all, it was just an accident, correct? That has been the narrative. Interestingly though, the criminal complaint paints a different picture.
“However, the vehicle then appeared to rapidly accelerate, as Officer Butryn heard tires squeal. The vehicle took an abrupt left turn into the crowd of parade participants,” it said.
“At this point, it was clear to Officer Butryn that this was an intentional act to strike and hurt as many people as possible. Officer Butryn continued to run westbound on East Main Street, trailing the vehicle and its path,” the complaint said. “He observed the vehicle appeared to be intentionally moving side to side, striking multiple people, and bodies and objects were flying from the area of the vehicle,” the complaint said.
The complaint also noted a detective on the scene who had spoken to multiple witnesses.
“One witness indicated, ‘As I continued to watch the SUV, it continued to drive in a zig zag motion. It was like the SUV was trying to avoid vehicles, not people. There was no attempt made by the vehicle to stop, much less slow down,” it said.
“Detective Trussoni spoke with another witness who described the same zig zag driving pattern by the SUV and the witness further indicated, he felt it was ‘a direct intent to hit as many parade participants,’” the complaint said.
Well gosh, why would CNN not be covering this wire to wire the way they cover the January 6 incident at the Capitol?
What could be the difference between these two events? It boggles the mind.
“Two detectives opined that this was an intentional act, that the vehicle seemed to swerve into individuals, actually at one point tried to avoid other vehicles,” Court Commissioner Kevin Costello said. “I have not seen anything like this in my very long career. It seems to be a very strong case for the state.”
For the state yes, but not strong enough for the mainstream media to treat it with the seriousness it deserves.
