Vigil for victims of Waukesha Christmas parade incident | USA TODAY

 

The driver of an SUV that hurtled through a barricade and slammed into a Christmas parade in suburban Waukesha on Sunday was fleeing from a domestic disturbance moments before he killed at least five people and injured more than 40, police said.
RELATED:

Waukesha Police Chief Dan Thompson said Monday that Darrell Brooks Jr., 39, was fleeing a domestic disturbance with a report of a knife when he rammed into the parade. Brooks was not being chased, Thompson said. He will be charged with five counts of intentional homicide, Thompson added.

The dead were four women and a man ages 52 to 81. Thompson said 48 people were injured in the crash, which was captured on the city's livestream as the SUV struck a high school band, children's dance group and the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies.

    1. DA’s who’ve been allowing criminals back into the streets many of them violent insurrectionist.

      God made flowers of many colors are all rely on the sun and the rain to grow to flourish.

      Before a flower blossoms into its beautiful form it goes through a struggle in the dark. It needs to fight through the soil is God gives it life to pop out into the sunshine with the beautiful testimony of how God gives growth to even a flower how much more important are you than flowers.

      And the same way humans go through things of all colors you may not see their struggle to grow you may not see their hearts cries. God does! so we are not to judge upon appearance we need to judge with a righteous judgment. with the word of God! we need to love and encouraged
      and build up and not tear down!

      Jesus Christ came to save that which is lost the Lord is looking for his sheep the Lord is looking for flowers of all colors to lift their petals to the sky!

      “Need to be held accountable I need to be sued…”

      You do?
      Ok then.
      So how much are you worth, wouldn’t want to waste anyone’s time…

    3. @level Joe clearly you can’t be that ignorant man I must have made a typo you need to turn to Jesus Christ to level up and stop being foolish

    4. @Yousavedbro Heaven Bound We all need Jesus. Sounds like you need some help today. I’m not lost, we can walk together.

    5. @level Joe yes the word of God teaches that we need Jesus Christ and we need to encourage and love each other everyday.

      🙏❤✝

  1. Where’s the Waukesha court commissioner that let him out on 11/16/2021 without bail? Why doesn’t he show his face? Where’s the Milwaukee DA that let him out on 11/11/2021 for $1000.00 cash bail? They just keep on letting them out. Despicable. They need to go to jail.

    1. @Carlos Rubino Darrell Brooks is from Milwaukee not Waukesha, the DA of Milwaukee county is a liberal. Darrell Brooks was in Milwaukee jail when he posted his 1000 dollar bail, Waukesha county deputies picked him up from Milwaukee county jail to get his mugshot taken than release him.

    2. Dda’s that are letting criminals out into the street they’re letting illegals out into the street to do harm to other people have blood on their hands and they must be removed in the name of Jesus Christ may God get these Wicked communist activist out of government.

      These Wicked people cry not have the police yet they run to the police when they’re in trouble these Wicked people say they want justice but yet ignore all the violent destruction that blmf FIFA did destroying people of colors communities and even hurting and killing some of them

  2. Its just a matter of time before YT removes the comment section all together. Shutting down the likes was just a trial run.

    1. I’m not sure. The comments likely bring a fair number of the viewers. I tend to skip videos that don’t allow comments.

  3. My sincere condolences to the entire community of Waukesha. Know that our city, Orlando Florida, stands with you in solidarity. May God grant you all peace. 🙏🙏🙏🙏

    1. @Michelle Santiago maybe your a good person, but given your zip code it’s unlikely. And yes make your assumptions cause it’s true 😉😘

    2. @Adolf Shekelberg since when does ones zip code indicate whether a person is a good person, or a bad person? That’s a new one on me! Once again, an assumption! 😘

    3. @Michelle Santiago the type of people one surrounds themselves with says alot about the person, so I’ve heard.

    4. @Adolf Shekelberg I’ve heard the same thing, but how do you think you know who I hang around with? Is this based on my zip code? Rest assured, I’m a good person. I was really just offering my condolences to a very heart broken community right now. Orlando went through the same thing with the Pulse tragedy. Have a good night Adolf.

    1. @Good Vibes uhh no? The point I’m making is that liberals say black people are so oppressed and cops shoot them for nothing but this guy killed and injured a bunch of innocent people and he wasn’t even shot

    1. Well, he hasn’t been formally charged so they can’t say “vehicular manslaughter incident”. There’s not a specific term for “driving your car into a crowd” so WTF do you expect?? It wasn’t a shooting otherwise they would have said that. You’ll find anything that complain about. Go kiss the a$$ of the Wisconsin court system you loved so much a couple days ago

    4. @Egregious Filmin
      Actually, you said it rather specifically: “…driving your car into a crowd….” That is what he did.
      (01) He: A somebody, a possible suspect in what might possibly prove to be considered a crime
      (02) drove his car: Yep, that is what this person did and he drove that car
      (03) into a crowd.
      That’s it. That’s what every person was told…by the “news”.
      Now if you are suggesting that there be no “news” coverage, of anything like this (criminal trials, assaults, rapes, stealing, theft, violence…all that fun stuff we read about day after day after day)…so if you are suggesting that NONE of that ever be reported…at all…ever…until those formal legal charges have been made? Oh, I am right there on your side. That would have made all that “news” a ten-second clip:
      “And elsewhere in the news today, a man drove his car into a crowd. Some people were hurt a few people died. Now, moving on to sports and the weather.”
      But I don’t think that’s what you meant, now is it?

  4. Oh my….there are no words to express the sadness and disbelief I’m feeling. Sending prayers to those involved, their families and that whole community. I’m so sorry you all are having to go through this. 🙏😔🙏

    1. It’s only us White men who ain’t protected class

      White women – protected class
      Asian women – protected class
      Black women – protected class
      Indian women – protected class
      Muslim women – protected class

      Black men – protected class
      Asian men – protected class
      Indian men – protected class
      Muslim men – protected class

      All us white men are hated

  5. Victimizing criminals, bail reforms, defunding the police and abolishing prisons are not looking like good ideas anymore.

    1. I agree, the DA of Waukesha County is Susan L Opper. She is GOP. Crime in these GOP controlled counties is out of control all over this country. The GOP is out of control and is putting this great country and its citizens in danger

    1. @Jeremiah Shine or was it a bigot who attacked people because of their race. The facts of his own posts matter. Media spins.
      *Veritas*

    2. @Jeremiah Shine no excuse. People have shitty lives all over the world. They don’t go around killing innocent people because of it.

    3. @Jeremiah Shine And, ran out and did that racist thing he’s been harping about and wanting to do but didn’t.

    4. @Trevor Guthrie I can make a fake profile. Imagine if an insider standing by the mainframe can shoot something out.

  6. Props to the lady doing signing! Man it looks COLD! My mind is hurting for these people and my heart. We need one another indeed. When people hurt its so easy to listen to the hurt and sink into confusion rather than forgive where needed or stay calmly and seek peace. Glad that there many faiths represented to offer help. The blessing of living in a free country, atleast for today🙏

    1. There was black people in the parade too so?? If he only hated white people he wouldn’t have all those previous charges of assault, endangering safety, etc(FYI all his victims were NOT just white). It’s not a white supremacist or a BLM member that makes someone a murderer – it’s people’s lack of value for human life. And you all are just going to breeze right over that Fields dude who killed protesters with his car? He was part of that conservative extremist crew. He was never charged with terrorism so, WTF are you talking about they only call white people terrorist? 🤣 You literally are making it up as you go..(they called him white supremacist, yes because of his own pictures and audio recordings.. he has the same “their the enemy, they deserve to die” mentality so don’t even pretend it’s only black criminals with no value for life). The same people kissing a$$ of the Wisconsin court system the other day are now saying “we need reform” – do you have tunnel vision?? People have been begging for court reform for decades and were called crazy in conservative eyes for considering it 🤦 This guy’s a murderer, he deserves to pay the consequences, if a white dude kills people they deserve to pay the consequences too – WTF is difficult to understand about that?? They wouldn’t even call Brian laundrie a suspect lol but it’s only black people getting special treatment from society? 🤦 Our system is f*cked.. it’s not one side or the other it’s the whole system screwing all of us while we argue amongst ourselves

  7. This is what the media inspires, “acts” atrocities like this. They will never be held accountable for it either.

    1. Exactly. The guy probably didn’t even bother watching the Rittenhouse trial, but instead just accepted the toxic MSM coverage of it.

    2. Most of the media is evil there trying to downplay this to try to make excuses for this obviously evil hated April guy who did the devil’s work.

      The wicked media always make excuses for evil people and their behavior.

      God is going to flip the script. On the media and BLM antifa!

    1. Mommy: Because, sweety, their skin color can sometimes give them a get-out-of-jail-early pass.

  8. Yeah, just an incident. That’s all, not a hate crime or anything.

    This is why the dislike button was removed, people.

    They need to hide the fact that people are no longer falling for their bullshit anymore.
