Mass murderer Brooks, “acting” as his own attorney. Being advised by leftist public defenders and other leftist attorneys.
Imagine the feeling of abuse as relatives of the slain are “questioned” by the beast that mowed down your loved ones.
The Judge in this case, a pretty good looking female, appears to be emotionally distraught by the situation and all the antics. Perhaps that was the lefty strategy to get Brooks to push her over the edge and create a mistrial.
He’s a good boy dindunuthin

Brooks’ open Milwaukee County cases
That brings us to summer 2020.
In July 2020, Brooks was charged with a series of felonies after prosecutors say he fired a gun at his nephew outside a house on N. 19th Street in Milwaukee. After that shooting, Brooks was ordered to have no contact with a number of people, including his mother, Dawn Woods, but when he was arrested again just a couple of weeks ago on new crimes, it was his mother who bailed him out.
In early November 2021, Brooks was charged with two felonies and three misdemeanors, including second-degree recklessly endangering safety (domestic abuse assessments) after prosecutors say he ran over his girlfriend in a Milwaukee gas station parking lot. The incident left the mother of his child with a bloody face and tire tracks on her leg. According to prosecutors, he later tried to persuade the woman to not cooperate with investigators in exchange for marriage.
In that 2020 shooting case, cash bond was set at $10,000 in July 2020, online court records show, but “adjusted down” to $7,500 in August 2020. In February 2021, nine months before the Christmas parade attack, it was “adjusted down” again to $500. That $500 cash bond was posted in May 2021. Cash bond was set at $1,000 in that domestic violence case on Nov. 5, 2021.
Brooks’ mother posted the $1,000 bail in the domestic violence case on Nov. 11, 2021, but Brooks was not released from the custody of the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office until at least Nov. 16, 2021. That’s when he appeared before a Waukesha County judge, by phone, in the custody of the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department for failure to pay in a child support case. A judge released Brooks on his own recognizance in that case – just days before the parade attack, which led to outrage and renewed calls for bail reform. The “low bail” and the fact that Brooks was free after posting it before he allegedly killed six people and injured dozens of others in Waukesha led to outrage and renewed calls for bail reform. At the time of the Christmas parade attack, Brooks also had an active warrant out of Nevada for skipping court on sex crime charges.
