On Sunday, Nov. 21 at around 4:40 p.m. local time, a delightful Christmas parade in downtown Waukesha, Wisconsin, turned horrific as a red SUV shot through the crowd. So far, five people have been confirmed dead, with more than 40 others injured, many of whom were children.
According to Summit News, Darrell Edward Brooks Jr, a 39-year-old black man with a lengthy criminal record, has been identified as the suspect of the Sunday’s “mass casualty incident.”
Brooks is a registered sex offender with a history of resisting arrest, obstruction, battery, statutory sexual seduction, strangulation and suffocation, property destruction, illegal firearm possession, bail jumping, domestic violence, and drug related charges.
In addition, court documents shows that two days before the tragedy, Brooks Jr. was released on cash bail for three misdemeanors and two felonies.
Brooks Jr is also known as Mathboi Fly, a Soundcloud rapper. The lyrics of Mathboi Fly highlight black racial grievance, white hatred, and outright support for terrorism and crime. One of his songs titled “Minnesota” covers familiar racial grievance.
Before his account was deleted, one of his Facebook post is about a black man whipping white men enslaved in a cotton field.
Another post from the George Floyd riots encourages black people to get involved in random acts of violence against whites.
In another post, he called white people as “the enemy.”
Anti-police sentiment was also seen on his Facebook.
The town where the tragedy occurred is 89 percent white, indicating that white people will make up the large majority of the victims.
