MADISON —  Darrell Brooks Jr. is going to spend the rest of his life in prison. But the people he hurt and killed in the Waukesha Christmas Parade Massacre would very likely be here unharmed today had it not been for Milwaukee County’s revolving door criminal justice system led by “progressive” justice jurists like Mary Triggiano.

Triggiano, Milwaukee County Circuit Court Chief Judge, is stepping down to lead Marquette University’s Andrew Center for Restorative Justice, the university announced this week. She is expected to take over sometime next year for former liberal Supreme Court Justice Janine Geske.

Triggiano, who was appointed chief judge in early 2020, departs as Milwaukee County Circuit Court is buried in a case backlog thanks in large part to her strict COVID mitigation policies that long kept courtrooms locked down. She has also been a key proponent of the kinds of alternative experimental criminal justice reforms that have caused a lot of heartbreak in Milwaukee County and beyond over the past several years.

    When “restorative justice” takes into account restoring justice to the victims and the community, instead of the offenders, I may actually care about it.

    Wokeism trumps misogyny. It is more important to protect violent males than female victims. Darrel Brooks was a classic misogynist. Sexual predator, rapist and violent abuser. Of course if you listen to his wrap up during summation to jury – He, Darrel was the ultimate victim. Very interesting portal to criminal mindset. That’s why “rehab” at his age is impossible. Perhaps a young non violent felon can use “restorative justice” but a career criminal? No. (Why was he not charged with a hate crime?)
    Also, across the state judges allow plea bargins for violent offenders in domestic situations to avoid the full penalty of the law. “Oh well, it’s a domestic” as if the female victim can easily deal with the trauma which by the way, lasts a life time.
