Mass Casualty Incident

 Evidently, there was a mass-casualty event in Wauseka, WI this weekend where some asshole drove  an SUV through a crowed gathered for a holiday parade.  Over 20 people were injured and some fatally.

Our condolences  and prayers go to the families affected.

Police are reporting that they have a suspect in custody.  He's a career criminal, the type that drives the criminal justice system stone-crazy.

“Brooks is a career criminal with multiple priors and was released from jail two days prior to the incident after posting a $1,000 bail for three misdemeanors and two felonies. He has a history of resisting arrest, obstruction, battery, statutory sexual seduction, strangulation and suffocation, property destruction, illegal firearm possession, bail jumping, domestic violence, drug related charges and is a registered sex offender.”

Now, he can add multiple counts to that list, some of them will be homicide.

Released from jail two days prior on $1000 bail for three misdemeanors and two felonies. With a rap sheet like his. What in the heck is going on that a guy like this is out on the street? Unfortunately, the injured and dead of Waukesha appear to have received the results that their Criminal Justice system is delivering. Too bad the court can't be charged with criminal negligence.

Hopefully the DA will not over-charge.

I don't know Wisconsin law, but in Louisiana I believe he would be charged with vehicular homicide or involuntary manslaughter.
