Waukesha SUV Killer Was On The Streets Because Of Liberal D.A.

Now he's trying to spin his way out of responsibility.

Another liberal prosecutor means more innocent people dying at the hands of violent criminals who should have stayed behind bars.


FNC: “The horrific events in Waukesha – which left five dead and dozens injured – have prompted questions about how law enforcement might have failed to protect the Wisconsin town.

In recent days, public attention has shifted to the fact that the suspect who plowed his SUV into a crowd gathered for a Christmas parade on Sunday, Darrell Brooks, was released from jail earlier this month on what Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm called an ‘inappropriately low’ bail amount.

Are you embarrassed that Joe Biden is our "president"?

‘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,’ Chisholm’s office said in a statement. A self-described ‘progressive,’ Chisholm has championed left-leaning reforms and previously acknowledged that his proposals could result in a person being let go and committing murder.”

Chisholm makes himself out to be tough on crime on his website. “John has created specialized units targeting witness intimidation, child abuse, and gun-and-drug-related crime. John has hired twenty law enforcement officers to investigate threats against witnesses as well as crimes that cross municipal boundaries in Milwaukee County. John has created a nationally-acclaimed community prosecution program that stations experienced prosecutors in neighborhoods throughout Milwaukee County, where they work with residents, businesses, and nonprofits to combat crime at the ground level.”

But in an interview with the press he blithely blows off any consequences of his liberal ideology. “Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody?” he told the Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal in 2007. “You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen. It does not invalidate the overall approach.” You bet, he said, speaking about a death his actions would cause.  And now he’s trying to delay and obfuscate. “This office is currently conducting an internal review of the decision to make the recent bail recommendation in this matter in order to determine the appropriate next steps.”

The facts are that Chisholm’s office released Brooks on a $1,000 bond after Brooks ran over the mother of his child. In response, Republican State Rep. Cindy Duchow will reintroduce a constitutional amendment reforming Wisconsin’s bail process. “He tried to run over his girlfriend with his car — that’s attempted murder,” she said. “If you’re a danger to society, you should have to work hard to get out.”
