Biden Responds to ‘Horrific Act of Violence’ at Wisconsin Christmas Parade


President Joe Biden verbally expressed he and his wife are mourning the loss of life after a “horrific act of violence” at a Wisconsin Christmas parade that left five people dead and scores more injured on Sunday night.

Ascendant entities on Monday afternoon identified the suspect in the incident as Darrell E. Brooks, 39, who was charged with five counts of intentional homicide. Officials have not relinquished a motive in the case.

While we don’t have all the facts and details yet, we ken that this morning that five families in Waukesha are facing fresh grief, a life without a doted one, Biden verbally expressed in an unrelated news conference on “Monday.”

Biden continued to say that the people of Waukesha were accumulated to celebrate a season of hope, and togetherness and Thanksgiving.

This morning, Jill and I and the entire Biden family and I’m sure all of us pray that same spirit is going to embrace and hoist up all the victims of this tragedy, bringing comfort to those recuperating from the injuries and wrapping the family of those who died in the fortification of their community,

the president added.

Among the dozens of people injured in the mass casualty incident were 18 children, according to Children’s Wisconsin hospital. Video footage showed a red SUV plowing through the parade, which included school and community groups.

Police Chief Dan Thompson verbally expressed Monday there was is no evidence the crash on Sunday was a terrorist attack or that the suspect, Darrell Brooks Jr., kenned anyone in the parade. Thompson identified those killed as four women ages 52 to 79 and an 81-year-old man. They were identified as Virginia Sorenson, 79; LeAnna Owens, 71; Tamara Durand, 52; Jane Kulich, 52; and Wilhelm Hospel, 82.

And according to Thompson, police were not chasing the suspect when he entered the parade route, disputing anonymously sourced media reports that Brooks was endeavoring to eschew police capture at the time of the incident. An officer did fire shots to endeavor and stop him, the chief verbally expressed.

Brooks, Thompson verbally expressed, “drove right through [police] barricades and the officers” and “drove right through the crowds” despite an officer shooting at his conveyance. Brooks has two open malefactor cases in Milwaukee County. In one case, filed Nov. 5, he is charged with resisting or obstructing an officer, temerarious imperilling, disorderly conduct, bail jumping, and battery. Records show $1,000 cash bond was posted on “Friday.”

An attorney representing Brooks in a separate case told The Epoch Times that he cannot comment on the matter because he’s representing him in another case. It’s not clear if Brooks has an attorney in the Waukesha incident.
