Following a not guilty verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case, rioting started in Wisconsin. On Sunday 21 November, a man drove through the Waukesha Christmas parade killing five people and injuring over forty, including 18 children. The suspect, Darrell Brooks, Jr., 39, is in custody and has been charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide. He was recently released (just days before the parade attack) on $1,000 bail after being charged in an early November incident for allegedly running down his child’s mother with his vehicle.
Despite the number of deaths and injuries, the White House has yet to comment on this incident.
One democratic official – a social media manager for the Du Page, Illinois Democratic Party – who tweeted that the incident was “karma” for the Rittenhouse not guilty verdict has resigned or was fired (unclear). One of her tweets said the blood of Rittenhouse’s victims was on the hands of Wisconsin citizens, even the children.
