Waukesha, WI – Self-described anti-White terrorist Darrell E. Brooks Jr. has been found guilty on all 76 counts by the jury today, bringing a conclusive end to the trial of the man who intentionally drove his red SUV through the annual Waukesha Christmas parade on Nov. 21, 2021, killing six White people and maiming and wounding more than 60 others.
Waukesha Circuit Judge Jennifer Dorow said that she will postpone sentencing until next week to give victims and their families a chance to speak in court.
Brooks, appropriately, appeared in his jailhouse orange uniform Wednesday morning. At the start of the day, Judge Dorow rejected Brooks’ motion for a mistrial and jury dismissal based on a prank Reddit post by someone falsely claiming to be a member of the jury.
At 9:43 am CT, after an hour of deliberations following two hours of deliberation on Tuesday, the jury announced it had reached its verdict. At 10:45 am CT, Brooks appeared in court in a suit and Judge Dorow read through the 76 counts.
After the second guilty verdict was read, someone in the court yelled, “Burn in hell, you piece of shit!” and was removed by bailiffs.
The jury found Brooks guilty of more than 70 felony charges including six counts of first-degree intentional homicide with a dangerous weapon, 61 counts of recklessly endangering safety with a dangerous weapon, six counts of hit-and-run involving death, two counts of bail jumping, and one count of battery. He faces multiple life terms in prison. Wisconsin doesn’t have a death penalty.
While the guilty finding was heartening for victims, many consider it a gross injustice that hate crimes charges were never brought against Brooks. Brooks has an extensive, documented history of anti-White statements calling for violence.
“He told us he wanted to knock out old White people, and he did just that,” said Mike Peinovich, chairman of the National Justice Party, which led protests in Waukesha both immediately after the terror attack and as the trial began. “When someone tells you they’re an anti-White terrorist, believe them.
“Darrell Brooks can still be charged with hate crimes. He was not charged with them as of yet, so to bring such charges either federally or at the local level would not be double jeopardy,” Peinovich said. “We should not be satisfied with a guilty verdict for intentional murder. Prosecuting this is the least of the state’s obligations, so I am not particularly impressed with them doing the bare minimum. Brooks must be charged for his racial attack or else such statutes must be dropped, because they are obviously just tools used to oppress one race, White people.”
NJP central committee member Warren Balogh said it was an outrage no hate crimes charges were brought.
“This trial was a farce from start to finish. In spite of overwhelming evidence, Brooks was never even charged with terrorism or hate crimes. He was not charged because of the anti-White bias of the Wisconsin DA, the FBI and the Justice Department. In the immediate aftermath of the attack, multiple major newspapers reported on Brooks’ anti-White statements and social media postings, and they were remarked on by Republican officials from the local GOP chair all the way to media darling Ron DeSantis,” Balogh told Justice Report. “Despite this, the national media ignored the trial and did everything possible to bury the story. Neither DeSantis nor any other Republican mentioned it again, and Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson deserves special contempt for claiming he was opposed to hate crimes charges on principle, after having voted for two hate crimes bills sponsored by the ADL.
“Brooks was allowed to dominate, demean and ridicule the entire process with his outrageously insolent courtroom behavior. That he was allowed to make such a mockery of the judge, the court, and the people of Wisconsin exposes the double standard against White people. The fact remains that if the races were reversed, this trial would’ve been international headlines for months, Brooks would’ve been charged with hate crimes and terrorism, and he would be facing the death penalty.”Warren Balogh
