MADISON — Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm predicted a long time ago that his “progressive” style of law enforcement would come back to hurt society.
“Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into [a] treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody?” the Democrat DA told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2007. “You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen. It does not invalidate the overall approach.”
That “individual” is Darrell E. Brooks Jr, according to police. Brooks now faces six counts of intentional homicide after he allegedly plowed through a Waukesha Christmas parade on Nov. 21. Dozens more were injured, many of them seriously.
