Wisconsin Parade Attacker Sentenced to Life in Prison Without Parole

{Forgive me for using Reuters but it appears purely factual} Who thinks he'll appeal and make a bid to be sent to the puzzle factory for treatment?

He has been buried alive and deserves worse. There will be no soap-on-a-rope for him. He'll wind up in administrative segregation and live into sensory deprived insanity. He escaped the death penalty because he's black.

=================================================

A Wisconsin man convicted of killing six people and injuring dozens more when he drove through a Christmas parade near Milwaukee last year was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole on Wednesday. Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Jennifer Dorow handed down six consecutive life prison terms to Darrell Brooks, 40, who was found guilty on Oct. 26 of 76 criminal counts, including six counts of intentional homicide.

The judge symbolically added at least another 1,067 years to the life sentences to underscore the severity of the crimes for which she said Brooks showed "no remorse, no empathy. "Some people choose a path of evil. And I think, Mr. Brooks, you are one of those such persons," Dorow said, adding that video evidence presented at trial "kept me up at night." Brooks deliberately drove a sport utility vehicle through police barricades last November and plowed into crowds of people participating in the annual parade in Waukesha, about 15 miles (25 km) west of downtown Milwaukee.

Brooks, shackled while wearing an orange jail uniform, acted as his own attorney and spoke for two hours before the sentencing. He briefly acknowledged the victims while mostly detailing his need for mental health treatment. "I want you to know that not only I am sorry for what happened, I am sorry that you cannot see what is truly in my heart and the remorse in my heart," Brooks said as he wept during his statement in a packed courtroom.

    The price of ammunition has gone up thanks to Schiffheads in high places. Nevertheless, the price of a bullet is relatively way, way, way cheaper than it costs to house, feed, medically safeguard and protect from other inmates someone who would crash a car through a police barricade to kill six innocent people watching a parade.
    Not mentioned is how many other innocent people escaped death by being injured. Any kids?
    Anyway, any number of bullets required for a firing squad (1 bullet multiplied by ?) is still cheaper than a rope, an electric jolt or an injection. Even using all these execution methods combined added to building a guillotine is altogether way, way, way cheaper than keeping such a waste of breathing pace alive before he dies of natural causes,

      Application of my ice axe to this animal's skull would be cheaper still. Then, wrap the remains in a couple of contractor bags, dump the whole thing into my weekly-filled trash bin and the problem ends up in the local land fill.

      My best friend worked for 26 years in the DOC for Washington State. The amount of care and money spent on inmates is nauseating.

      I will hold on to the hope that this monster is given the eternal dirt nap once on the inside of prison.

    Wow. 1,067 years. The Judge was really making herself understood.

      She was unnecessarily kind to him, just to make sure he would not get an appeal based on a biased judge. He tested her patience. She remained calm and allowed him to hang himself, behaving as a sociopath behaves, being his own lawyer.

    What NEEDS to occur is the spineless dementia patient in the White House needs to use this as an example of what happens when you use violence on people. No matter what their color. But, he’s too much of a BLM pandering pussy to dare risk upsetting his base and all the dipshits on Twitter. So there will be more of these ACTUAL domestic terrorism attacks. Condemning this man in a strong manner would go a long way to restoring faith in our institutions. But he won’t even do that.
