In a truly disturbing turn of events, at least 5 people are dead, and 40 wounded after a red SUV plowed into a crowded Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday night.
As Fox News reports:
Authorities in a Milwaukee suburb continued overnight to deal with the aftermath after a red SUV plowed into Christmas parade marchers and spectators Sunday, striking more than 20 adults and children.
Some fatalities occurred at the Waukesha event, police Chief Dan Thompson told reporters at an evening news conference, according to FOX 6 of Milwaukee.
Waukesha city officials early Monday confirmed that at least five people had died and more than 40 suffered injuries. They warned that both numbers could change.…
Chilling videos on social media showed the SUV plowing into parade participants, with loud screams audible from those who witnessed the horror. Other videos showed people running to the aid of the injured people.
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
More information is expected to be released later on Monday.
In addition, Redstate is reporting that the alleged suspect involved is a black male in his late 30’s:
Multiple reports, relying on scanner traffic on Broadcastify, claimed that a Waukesha police officer reported that the driver of the SUV was a black male. “There’s a car going westbound approaching the parade course. A red Escape. Black male. I couldn’t stop him. He’s going westbound blowing his horn.”
And, as I reported earlier, a man whose family was at the parade called into a local television station and reported that the driver was a black man with dreadlocks. That video has now been deleted.
However, according to NY Post reporter Karol Markiewicz, the person in custody is a black man with dreadlocks, Darrell E. Brooks.
Darrell E. Brooks, black male, late 30s is the suspect in custody in Waukesha.

This report hasn’t been confirmed by the police yet. If you search the name provided by Markowicz, though, the person is a convicted felon with a long criminal record who was released on $1,000 cash bail for his latest charges on November 19, just two days ago.
Meanwhile Leftists and Liberals on social media immediately began to desperately attempt to spin the attack through a lens which benefits their politics:

A left-wing social justice activist responded to the horrific tragedy at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin by sardonically commenting “poor white people” and joking that the murderer acted in “self-defense” against the crowd.https://t.co/J0DeHMltMd

Killer was white? White supremacy.
Killer was non-white? White supremacy.
