The DA responsible for Darrell Brooks getting out on such a low bond just days before he killed 5 and injured 48 yesterday now says that never should have happened:
THE BLAZE – The Milwaukee County district attorney admitted on Monday that the person suspected of driving his vehicle into crowds of people during a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin Sunday night was released from jail on “inappropriately low” bail.
Darrell Brooks Jr. (39) was taken into police custody Monday morning as a person of interest in the tragedy, which resulted in the deaths of at least five people and injuries to at least 40 more. He is suspected of plowing his Ford Escape SUV into the ongoing holiday parade, striking dozens of bystanders — including children and the elderly.
Shortly after his arrest, news surfaced that Brooks was also the suspect in multiple pending criminal cases but had recently been released from jail after posting bail.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported that Brooks “has been charged three times in less than two years with recklessly endangering the safety of others, most recently in an incident in which he is accused of running a woman over with his vehicle in Milwaukee.”
According to Milwaukee County District Attorney John T. Chisholm, the suspect should never have been afforded the opportunity for release on such a low bond amount. Brooks posted bail on Nov. 11, just ten days before the mass casualty incident.
“The State’s bail recommendation in this case was inappropriately low in light of the nature of the recent charges and the pending charges against Mr. Brooks. The bail recommendation in this case is not consistent with the approach of the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office toward matters involving violent crime, nor was it consistent with the risk assessment of the defendant prior to setting of bail,” the district attorney said in a statement.
On Nov. 5, Brooks was charged with second-degree recklessly endangering safety, felony bail jumping, battery, obstructing an officer, and disorderly conduct for which a cash bail was set at just $1,000, WTMJ-TV reported.
On top of that, he had another pending case involving charges of second-degree recklessly endangering safety and felon in possession of a firearm.
I guarantee you that Brooks’ low bond is the result of bleeding heart liberals who want to see less blacks and minorities in prison. So they went easy on him and the result is an act of domestic terrorism that shocked the nation. This is just my speculation, but I’m probably right.
After all, this is what he was touting in 2018:
An ADA on pre-trial detention reform: "We have really made a commitment to not keeping individuals held unnecessarily on cash bail in the Milwaukee County Jail."

Chisholm is a Democrat and I’ve read he’s affiliated with Soros. Either way, he needs to resign after this.
