Five dead, at least forty injured.

And what was this again ??? fleeing a stabbing incident? I don't think so. There may have been a stabbing preceding the decision to plough his vehicle into crowds of families, children and church, but I do not believe that the stabbing is an explanation, or that there was a "wrong turn."

I saw the video. Looks to me like he was driving like a bat outta hell, hellbent for leather, trying to make a getaway, and then got onto the parade route and started careening around. I very much doubt he got into the vehicle with the purpose of going to the parade to kill people or as revenge for the Rittenhouse verdict. Makes it no less criminal really because he obviously didn't care who he ran over, maimed and killed.

It doesn't matter why he got into his vehicle that day. He ignored Parade Route redirection signage, ploughed through road barricades, drove 40 MPH through a parade, eventually driving over people who were carrying musical instruments like the tuba. He simply drove over them, turning his vehicle into those who were fleeing, then driving over the next band. This was no wrong turn and no accident, this was a decision to drive through the Christmas Parade of family, children and church. There were so many chances to make a different decision, but he chose to slaughter the Christmas Parade.

When I looked at his related Instagram account (found through his twitter link below), seems wiped clean. Instagram accounts of friends also seem wiped clean (also linked through his twitter acct). Might he have done that after backing the vehicle onto a private property, as though ready for a quick get-away?

There was a mass murderer in New Zealand a couple of years ago, who had a long social media history of anti-social thinking. This isn't socialism, democrat or republican thinking. It's not woke thinking. It's thinking that some types of people should be erased. This man killed families, children and people from the Church. How will people feel about hosting the Christmas Parade next year? How many marching bands will feel safe participating. This mass murder will reverberate socially.

Accelerating 40 MPH through a Christmas Parade, driving over people playing the tuba, killing and permanently mangling people in their musical instruments, that's not a reaction to a stabbing elsewhere. Is that extreme right thinking ... to strike family and religious values in their small town homes?

What decision is behind this massacre?

I have seen cases in the past where social media gets scrubbed when a suspect is arrested. Notably, I have seen it with mass shooting suspects. It is an emotionally charged tragedy - mass casualties, including children 3 days before Thanksgiving at a Christmas parade. If the POI was fleeing another crime scene, those facts will come out. If it was planned domestic terrorism, those facts will come out. The public deserves the truth - whatever that may be. One thing is certain - it was not an accident.

Live updates: At least 5 killed after SUV plows into Wisconsin holiday parade

26 min ago
Investigators believe Waukesha suspect was fleeing incident

From CNN's Shimon Prokupecz and Evan Perez

The indications are the Waukesha suspect was fleeing another incident when he drove into the parade route, according to multiple law enforcement sources familiar with the preliminary investigation findings.

While early in the investigation, there is no known connection to international or domestic terrorism, and it does not appear to be connected to the Kenosha verdict, the sources said.

Milwaukee County’s backlogged court system is responsible for the man in custody in the Waukesha parade massacre remaining on the streets more than a year after he was charged with serious felonies, including a gun offense, Wisconsin Right Now has learned.

We’ve learned from scanner audio and other sources that the man in custody in the parade horror is Darrell Brooks Jr. What’s his criminal record? He has two open felony cases in Milwaukee County and a lengthy string of criminal arrests across multiple counties and states.

He’s a 39-year-old felon from Milwaukee County, and the Milwaukee Court system suspended his speedy trial rights due to “court congestion,” releasing him on $500 bail even though he was facing serious weapons and other felony charges.

Then, even though he was socked with a string of new felony charges, he was released again – on $1,000 bail – three days before the parade massacre.

When I went to bed last night, the crawl on one of the news channels indicated one fatality with at least 20 injured. I was afraid that I'd learn this morning that were additional fatalities and many more injured in the senseless tragedy. So sad for the community. Prayers for all who are affected.

Is the presser still expected at 1:00PM central time today?

As tragic and horrific as the situation is, I am relieved to hear that it doesn’t appear to be related to the Rittenhouse verdict.

If it had been a cold, calculated, planned massacre in retaliation for the Rittenhouse case it would have been worse, as had been widely speculated on social media last night. I didn’t think so but hopefully it remains unrelated.

MOO

Jealous and resentful loser, imo, speculation.

Five dead after driver rams Wisconsin Christmas parade – latest updates
''Video footage shows a red SUV barrelling at high speed into band members and cheerleaders marching in close formation, hitting multiple people and scattering the crowd.

Police chief Dan Thompson said one person of interest was taken into custody and the vehicle was seized. He said he didn’t yet know if there is any connection to terrorism.

Witnesses described the “horrifying” incident and said the driver of the SUV was “going from side to side, targeting people”.''
