Donald Trump released a passionate statement Monday after a lone motorist plowed his SUV into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin; killing at least five people and injuring scores more.

Young children are among the fatalities.

 

“The whole world is watching the tragedy which just took place in Waukesha, Wisconsin, it is devastating, horrible, and very very sick!” posted the 45th President. “My heart goes out to the people of this great, beautiful, and hardworking community.”

“We must find the answers to this terrible crime, and stop these violent and depraved acts from happening again. I am with you Waukesha, and always will be!” he added.

“While we don’t have all the facts and details yet, we know this morning that five families in Waukesha are facing fresh grief of a life without a loved one,” President Biden said at the start of an event. “At least 40 Americans are suffering from injuries, some of them in critical condition and an entire community is struggling, struggling to cope with the horrific act of violence.”

From Fox News:

The man being questioned after a red SUV plowed through Waukesha’s Christmas parade, killing at least five people and injuring dozens, has been identified as Darrell E. Brooks Jr., a Milwaukee man with a criminal history dating back to 1999 that includes numerous violent felonies.

Multiple senior law enforcement sources told Fox News that the 39-year-old longtime felon was being questioned in connection with the attack.

Police said early Monday that a red SUV plowed into pedestrians Sunday evening, killing five and injuring at least 40 more. Some of the victims were children.

He has a long rap sheet and a number of pending cases. Brooks’ most recent court appearance came on Nov. 5 for charges including reckless endangerment, battery, domestic abuse, resisting arrest and bail jumping. He was out on $1,000 bail for those charges at the time of the attack.

Dr. Michael Meyer of the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin says of the 18 injured children his facility is treating, 10 are in its intensive care unit. 

Of those 10, six are in critical condition, three are in serious condition and one is in fair condition. 

Meyer did not disclose the ages of those injured in the Waukesha attack, but said the victims the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is taking care of include three sets of siblings. 

“This is unique and truly demonstrates the devastating effects of this on our community,” he added.

In July 2020, police charged him with three other felonies – including reckless endangerment and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He’s also listed as a Tier 2 registered sex offender in Nevada.

A background check from Wisconsin’s Department of Justice came back with over 50 pages of charges against Brooks stretching back decades. In 1999 he received his first felony conviction for taking part in an aggravated battery – for which he received three years of probation, records show.

He was convicted of obstructing an officer in 2005 and 2003. In 2002 he had another felony marijuana charge.
