BREAKING NOW: Verdict Reached in Christmas Parade Mass Killing

( – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, the jury in the trial of the mass killer who drove his vehicle through a Christmas Parade last year found him guilty of killing six innocent victims and injuring many more.

As the New York Post recounts in “Darrell Brooks convicted of killing 6 with SUV in Waukesha Christmas parade”:

“A Wisconsin man was convicted Wednesday of killing six people when he drove his SUV through a Christmas parade last year, ending a trial in which he defended himself erratically and sometimes confrontational.

“The jury found Darrell Brooks guilty of six counts of first-degree intentional homicide. He faces a mandatory life sentence on each count.

“The jury got the case Tuesday and deliberated for a total of 3 hours and 15 minutes into Wednesday morning before announcing they had reached a verdict.” [emphasis added]

As most will recall of this horrific killing:

“Brooks drove his Ford Escape into the Christmas parade in Waukesha in suburban Milwaukee on Nov. 21 moments after fleeing a domestic disturbance with his ex-girlfriend, prosecutors said.

Six people were killed, including 8-year-old Jackson Sparks, who was marching in the parade with his baseball team, and three members of the Dancing Grannies, a group of grandmothers that dances in parades. Dozens of other people were hurt, some severely.” [emphasis added]

As mentioned, Brooks faces a mandatory prison sentence of life behind bars.
