No more dancing

Well I never. The guy who drove his car into a parade in Waukesha yesterday has gotten a little rough with women before. You don’t say.

The driver who plowed through a Christmas parade in downtown Waukesha, killing five people and injuring nearly 50, did so intentionally and is expected to face first-degree homicide counts and other charges, police said Monday.

The suspect, Darrell Brooks Jr., 39, recently had been released from custody in a strikingly similar case, in which he was accused of driving over a woman during a domestic dispute, sending her to the hospital and leaving tire marks on her pant leg.

The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office, which is prosecuting that case, said Monday it was launching an internal review of a prosecutor’s “inappropriately low” $1,000 bail recommendation. The bail amount was signed off on by a court commissioner.

I guess women are a cheap commodity.

The people he killed were mostly Dancing Grannies.

The victims named on Monday were:

  • Mr Wilhelm Hospel, 81
  • Ms Virginia Sorenson, 79
  • Ms LeAnna Owen, 71
  • Ms Tamara Durand, 52
  • Ms Jane Kulich, 52

They include members of the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies, who are a regular fixture in the city’s parades.

“Our group was doing what they loved, performing in front of crowds in a parade putting smiles on faces of all ages,” the group wrote in a statement on Facebook. “Those who died were extremely passionate Grannies.”

It makes me sad.
