​​​​​​Darrell Brooks was trying to strike “as many people as possible” when raced his car through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Sunday, authorities said in a criminal complaint.

The complaint filed on Tuesday describes Mr Brooks as having “no emotion” when he drove down the parade route, killing six people and wounding at least 47 others. Moments earlier, he was said to have fled from police responding to a call about a domestic dispute between him and another person.

Prosecutors plan to charge the 39-year-old with six counts of first-degree intentional homicide. He is being held on $5m bail.
Now that I was not expecting.

And they still have to face federal court on a civil rights charge next year.

I doubt they'll see the outside of a prison again.

Yay!! Georgia white folks are not as racist as I thought (at least the jury, not the perps)

Perhaps they just came to a decision based on the facts rather than race?

That is what it looks like to me. (If you are referring to the jury, and not the perps)

Yep the Jury, sort of amusing that the Defense set up their case and spent 2 weeks arguing Citizens Arrest to have the judge direct otherwise and then a few days self defence which made even less sense. A hopeless cause anyway.

Jogging while Black.
A few houses were built near me a few years ago and I went in and marveled at the construction process after hours. I even have photos.
Luckily I am white, and no one saw me, or if they did they did not chase me and kill me!

Bit more to it than that, deemed inadmissible as far as the court case was concerned. Not that I think it is relevant to the conviction.

Lots of people do that! My son-in-law is very much into DIY - he does most of the remodels/home improvements himself with very little help. I remember there was a vacant lot near where he lived and then someone bought it and started to build a house on it. My son-in-law frequently stopped off on his way home from work to take a look at the construction/floor plan, etc. He found all of that stuff interesting and may have gotten some ideas because of it. He was probably tresspassing, but as you said - he's white and no-one bothered him at all.

This is an interesting take, I thought reparations is based on taking Native American land.

So shoplifters shouldn't be labelled as such if their great-great grandchildren pay for the items stolen....
