ad hoc, why? progressives are behind the seat of power ferociously complaining. i'm elizabeth macdonald. the"the evening edit," it starts right now. ♪. elizabeth: joining us now, former deputy assistant attorney general thomas dupree and former federal prosecutor jim trusty. with he begin with the christmas parade attack. thomas dupree, darrell brooks moments ago in court. we learned a 6th person died. breaking news. intend to charge him with six homicide charges. five million dollars bail. thomas, your reaction. >> this is tragic, liz, what we learned happened in wisconsin at the parade the more horrible it comes. now they seem to be taking this guy seriously, bringing appropriate charges. i wish they recognized the danger this individual posed to community several weeks ago when they let him out on a thousand
dollars bail. this person, violent criminal, never should have been walking streets of wisconsin. he ran over six people, now a child is dead. injured many seriously with a christmas parade in wash shaw wisconsin. he has been charged with6 crimes since 1999. he has a criminal record for two decades. >> several children were sent to children's hospital besides the one just passed. this guy had a 2020 reckless endangerment charge, fellly criminal possession a long criminal record. two weeks ago he was let loose for $1000, basically running over the woman with the same car and having felony bail jumping charge. having a warrant in nevada. when you talk about pretrial detention, based on two things, risk of flight and danger to the community. this guy rings every possible
bell for each of those prongs. had no business being out on the street. any prosecutor and any judge that winked and nodded let him out should have a day of reckoning for what happened that day. elizabeth: he has not filed his plea yet. we'll monitor the swaying as it unfolds. back to you, thomas, turn to kyle rittenhouse. kyle rittenhouse faced two million dollars in bail, versus brooks one million dollars in bail the last go round. there is this, thomas. does rittenhouse have a defamation case against the media and then candidate biden for erroneous claims against him. >> defamation cases are difficult to prevail. i tell that to my clients all the time. you have to show it was a statement of fact. you have to show actual malice. it is very, very difficult to win on defamation cases in the united states. from my perspective i think really his most effective rebuttal to all the things said about him, many which were
false, the most effective rebuttal the jury's verdict. in my view the jury's verdict acquitting kyle rittenhouse speaks far more powerful than what any lawsuit could. elizabeth: rittenhouse and his attorney believe this is actionable what happened, false attacks on rittenhouse, what do you say? >> i think it is. i don't you have to have actual malice because he was not a public figure at the time this happened. there are different gradations you have to show by the way of the defamer based on your status in the society. i'm not sure it will be the most uphill defamation case. just like with nicholas sandmann, people that are demonizing someone that has not gone through the judicial system, calling out because they have a an agenda, basically their own narrative as opposed to evidence they deserved to be called down sometime. he should take a deep breath, get on with his life a little bit. unleash a couple lawyers to go
with defamation. a lot of folks will have to pony up. elizabeth: in this case seems like there was no presumption of innocence. no thought of due process, trial by jury, proof of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. with rittenhouse like accusations are tantamount to convictions in the media and with democrats. thomas, they could not identify specific plays in the process. they just disagreed with the outcome. what do you say. >> there is a lot of truth to that. no secret what a lot of people saw kyle rittenhouse what unfolded that night through a particular lens. that it fit a preconceived storyline. fit a preconceived narrative they had. to your point, all the wonderful constitutional protections some folks are quick to champion the presumption of innocence, proof beyond a reasonable doubt, funny how so many of these great constitutional concepts and protections get thrown out the window when the defendant is someone they find unpalatable.
elizabeth: to thomas's point. nicholas sandmann won a 275 million-dollar settlement with cnn after it did false reporting on the the confrontation with a native-american during a d.c. school trip. watch kyle rittenhouse on this. watch what happened with tucker carlson last night. >> mr. president, if i could say one thing to you, i would urge you to go back and watch the trial and understand the facts before you make a statement. >> that is not a small thing to be called that? >> no. it is actual malice, defaming my character for saying something like that. he crossed state lines. false. he is a white supremacist. false. none of that is true. and the lies that they can just get away with spread something just sickening and it is a disgrace to this country. i have really good lawyers who are taking care of that right now. so, i'm hoping one day there will be some, there will be
accountability for their actions that they did. >> okay. so you're intent, you will not let at that at let that go? >> like i said i have really good lawyers handling that. elizabeth: really good lawyers handling back. back to you, i'm going back to jim, jim, you're looking at the statements, media false statements about rittenhouse. candidate biden called him a white supremacist. they really poisoned the well and the national conversation on this because when you go out to talk to people about it they don't understand the facts of this case, how badly america has been misled on this? >> i think special recognition here for joe biden in this process. i guess even recently the vice president, because when people that are at the highest reaches of government weigh in and prejudge. we've had several incidents of this in the last few presidencies, where they weigh in, announce they figured it all
out before somebody is even charged or gone to court that is damaging for the civil. it is feeding into the emotional, virtual mob as well as the actual mob on the streets of kenosha. it's a terrible idea no matter what they think. these people should be upholding the criminal justice institutions saying let's be reasonable, rational. let's let the process play out. but instead for cheap politics, you have people denouncing, 17, 18-year-old kids, hoping to get away with it without any recompense. godspeed to kyle, i think he needs to go ahead to file away on the civil suits. elizabeth: tom, the president campaigned on unifying the country, right? the media reported that too. it was great he would unify the country. now both of them are splitting the country with false accusations. what do you say? >> i think one of the best ways to unify the country to hold your fire until you know what the facts on the ground are. when you jump out this preemptively announcing conclusion before evidence comes in, before facts come in, i
figured it out, i know the answer, that is recipe for division. the president would be much better served, let's let the process play out. hear the testimony from the witnesses. watch video evidence. let the jury speak before we reach any conclusions. elizabeth: thomas, jim, good to see you. we'll have you on again soon. still to come this hour congressman kevin brady, to the white house and democrats will they bring the obama era irs targets of conservatives. they want to hire 80,000 irs agents. who would they actually go after to pay for biden's big spending plans. that is kind of weird thinking. did this backfire. the president not taking questions today. oil and gas prices stuck ad trading highs, after president biden said he would release 50 million barrels with other countries. why oil pros say this is big nothing burger. a white house battle, but cannot
really? yep! so while you handle that, you can keep your internet and all those shows you love, and save money while you're at it with special offers just for movers at xfinity.com/moving. elizabeth: okay, did this move backfire? gas and oil prices still sticking at multiyear highs. oil actually rose after the president today announced he
will tap the u.s. strategic petroleum reserve, 50 million barrels there, along in tandem with china, india, so you cree, japan, great britain doing the same thing to look like they're lowering gas prices in time for holiday travel. biden's poll numbers are dropping. pros say this is nothing burrer. edward lawrence has more. reporter: president joe biden saying he is doing everything he can to bring down gas prices and turns around and blames the oil and gas industry for the price spike. the latest accusation that consolidation in the industry eliminated competitive pricing. >> the big part americans are facing higher gas prices that oil producing countries and large companies have not ramped up the supply of oil quickly enough to meet the demand, and the smaller supply means higher prices globally, globally for oil. to address these issues i got on the phone with leaders from
other countries grappling with this challenge. reporter: awe few weeks ago companies were making too much money, therefore they were gouging. bottom line for the ranking member on the senate energy committee. this is a biden caused disaster. senator john barrasso in a statement to fox business, president biden severely limited or restrictioned access to natural gas resources on federal lands and waters. at urging of activists and environmental activists they are starving banking resources for companies looking to drill for natural gas. senator toomey says the administration needs to reverse the energy policies. >> we may transition to widespread use of non-carbon emitting sources of energy and transportation and power and such but we're not there right now and as current prices show us, we to continue to make sure there is a reliable supply of the energy that we need for daily life. reporter: the treasury secretary
is now saying elevated inflation in gas, food, other things will last through the first half of next year. back to you, liz. elizabeth: edward lawrence thank you so much. good to see you. look who is back with us now, price futures group senior analyst phil flynn. we're looking into the government paperwork on this, phil. i know you've been studying it too. the oil, by drips and drabs coming into the u.s. economy starting in december through april of next year. it is only 50 million barrels. how much, combined with that, are the other countries doing, how much will this really move the needle? >> not at all. to be honest with you, when you look at 50 million barrels, you look at that in terms of global supply it is about 12 hours of supply. so you know, if you cooked a couple nothing burgers today you probably wasted all of that oil already and if you look at the other countries it is hard to know exactly what they're committing. the only one that gave us a hard number was actually india.
they said they would release five million barrels. five million barrels really isn't that much. oil tried to release oil from the reserves before a few months ago that backfired. it actually drove prices actually higher than they were before and they had to reverse course because they were running out of supply. elizabeth: here is the thing, energy secretary granholm doesn't even know, she couldn't answer today how many barrels per day of oil that the americans consume. it is about 18 million. if you're talking five million out of india, 50 million out of the u.s., i mean there is 1.6 billion, 1.7 billion barrels per day used. this is nothing. so this feels like window-dressing. feels like another opportunistic biden move, just to look good for holiday travel? >> this is headline. look at this i'm trying to save the gasoline prices, evil oil prices, nice i will release
50 million barrels, i don't think most americans realize how small that is. when you impact a global energy market next year will consume 100 million barrels of oil a day, this will not do anything. this is to deflect blame because higher gas prices go, lower poll numbers. elizabeth: feels like the policy shop is empty at the white house. the washington post is reporting that biden is going on the offense to stop his plunging polling numbers. on tunis i cannily blaming everybody else. say sicking ftc to go after oil and fast companies. blaming meat process oars for high meat prices. blaming companies not moving off goods off shipping dock fast enough. taking fewer and fewer questions as he continues to avoid interactions with the press.
saint lou fed advised to go to tofu turkeys and soy based meals as prices going up. this is the same thing that took out nixon, ford, and carter. they had trouble with this. you can't topspin it. >> absolutely. elizabeth: you can't topspin it. its with the reagan too. go ahead. >> i would say george bush, sr. was taken out for the same reason, rising gasoline prices. listen at the end of the day biden is blaming everybody. he is even blaming americans, saying hey, it your fault. you didn't buy an electric car. i hate to tell mr. biden fill your electric car is 20% more than it was because electricity is going up. this is it. this is an administration that takes responsibility for nothing, nada, especially energy prices. elizabeth: let's watch biden. >> you and i talked about it. we predicted this would happen. now it is happening. now it is somebody else's fault. elizabeth: watch the president and energy secretary on this
issue. watch. >> jan and i had a chance to discuss the views on priorities and federal reserve for years ahead. he made clear to me the top priority will be to accelerate the effort to mitigate the risk that climate change poses to our financial system and our economy. >> we're working through an energy transition and we've got to start by adding energy and the reality is, we have to take some time to get off of oil and gas. we recognize this. this is a transition. elizabeth: okay. do they see higher oil and gas prices as a, as not a problem but an opportunity to get to green energy? so are they sort of doing this window-dressing, declaiming what is going on with higher oil and gas prices, these empty shop, policy shop moves, spr, ftc go
after oil and gas but they like it, they want to transition to green energy? what do you think? >> originally that was there their plan. we will raise up oil prices and everybody will be happy to drive an electric car. the reality is, secretary granholm admitted the energy transition will take time. in other words she is owns this price rise. she is admitting energy transition is rising prices. at least the first person in this administration to blame the energy transition. president biden hasn't gotten the message. talk to his energy secretary. elizabeth: phil flynn, you're terrific. come back soon. we have this story coming up, reports coming in that the biden administration is free-lancing border policy ad hoc and on the fly. why? because progressives are behind the seat of power ferociously complaining. up next, criminal defense attorney, randy zelin. we have a sixth person dead in the waukesha christmas parade

original medicare you are covered for hospital stays and doctor office visits but you have to meet a deductible for each, and then you're still responsible for 20% of the cost. next, let's look at a medicare supplement plan. as you can see, they cover the same things as original medicare, and they also cover your medicare deductibles and coinsurance. but they often have higher monthly premiums and no prescription drug coverage. now, let's take a look at humana's medicare advantage plans. with a humana medicare advantage plan, hospitals stays, doctor office visits and your original medicare deductibles are covered. and, of course, most humana medicare advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. in fact, in 2020, humana medicare advantage prescription drug plan members saved an estimated $8,400 on average on their prescription costs. most humana medicare advantage plans include a silver
sneakers fitness program at no extra cost. dental, vision and hearing coverage is included with most humana medicare advantage plans. and you get telehealth coverage with a zero-dollar copay. you get all of this for as low as a zero-dollar monthly plan premium in many areas; and your doctor and hospital may already be a part of humana's large network. if you want the facts, call right now for the free decision guide from humana. there is no obligation, so call the number on your screen right now to see if your doctor is in our network; to find out if you could save on your prescriptions, and to get our free decision guide. humana, a more human way to healthcare. elizabeth: welcome to the show criminal defense attorney randy zelin. randy, great to see you again. we have unfortunate breaking news. six people are now dead.
now a child has died. they are victims of the christmas parade massacre in waukesha, wisconsin. these, he is going to face six charges of intentional homicide. five million dollars cash bail. how do you stop the soft on crime policies? can victim families sue? what do you think? >> unfortunately prosecutors like judges enjoy what's known as absolute immunity and that is a very fancy way of saying you cannot sue a prosecutor. you cannot sue a judge. anytime the judge or the prosecutor is exercising a judicial function. so the short answer is, you cannot sue a prosecutor, for example, for making a mistake and letting someone out either on no bail or 2-dollar bail. that person ends up going out and now killing a 6th person. elizabeth: so can they sue the
city? this guy has been charged with at least 10 violent crimes since 1999. can they sue the city? >> interesting question. there is a difference between being able to sue a prosecutor or a judge which you cannot, and being able to sue a government official which you might be able to. what you have here with a government official is not absolute immunity but something called immunity. it is exactly what it sounds like. you cannot sue a government official who is exercising a discretionary function. in other words, the decision whether or not to do something, something that is not ministerial. you cannot sue unless, as a result of that action or inaction you violate someone's statutory or constitutional right. it's a fancy way of saying maybe. elizabeth: what is a bigger violation of your constitutional rights than being mode down by
an suv at a christmas parade? that is major violation of those families rights. can they sue? what would you do in that case? >> well, it is a very, very interesting question the way you pose it because the oddity is, from a constitutional standpoint, it is not necessarily the victim that is protected by the constitution, it is the defendant. and here in addition to having the fifth amendment rights not to incriminate one's self, the right to be indicted by a grand jury, sixth amendment right to counsel. elizabeth: the constitution protects life and liberty. this guy took that away from them. i think -- >> agreed. elizabeth: i think they have grounds to sue. you have lawsuits like this against other municipalities across the country. this could happen. >> you would have to establish again, you would have to establish either a very clear constitutional or statutory
right that has been violated and anytime you are suing you run into the issue of things like notice, did you know, did you have reason to know before you acted or didn't act but to my earlier point, it is actually the defendant here has the eighth amendment right not to have excessive bail set. go figure that one. elizabeth: this will infuriate viewers and people out there. we have a child now dead. we have 17 children still in the hospital, many with serious injuries. six people now dead. how do you stop this? this has got to stop. >> i'm saying this now as a criminal defense attorney where the better my client does with bail or no bail, the better i look but now i'm speaking as a human being. as a human being bail reform, this into knee-jerk reaction to not having jails overcrowded with people waiting for trial who can't raise 50 or 100 or $500 bail, the knee-jerk
reaction was growing water on agrees fire, you don't it. when you take away discretion from a judge to set bail. when you take away discretion from a prosecutor to take away bail, now this is what happens. elizabeth: democrat rashida tlaib supporting new legislation to free everyone from prison. wants to let everyone out of federal prison. "axios" jonathan swan said even human trafficker? she dismissed that. aoc doubling down on bail reform. still to come, smash-and-grab looting for the third straight day in california but lammed warning that politicians downgrading shoplifting will lead to more at-home robberies and street hold ups. the word is out among criminals there, there are little to no consequences for that are crimes. up next, congressman kevin brady of texas. do the white house and democrats risk bringing back the obama era
of irs targeting conservatives. they ought to hire 80,000 new agents. who are they to go after with biden's spending plans? the story is next. then i found .

elizabeth: back with us now, welcome to the show. he is congressman kevin brady, house ways and means. good to see you back on the show, congressman. we love talking to you. >> good to see you, liz. elizabeth: white house and democrats will they bring back the obama era irs conservative targeting? this is 13 times than what obama got in 2011? what do you say? >> short answer, american taxpayers face a dangerous lack of privacy and ability of the irs to target americans based on their political beliefs. we saw this the last time joe biden was in the white house as vice president and we saw
massively leaks of private taxpayer information. in this case, to "propublica." already it's a occurring again this year. the irs was caught targeting in a non-profit based on their biblical teachings. as you know we've seen thousands of private taxpayer returns over 15 years leaked, this time again to "propublica." there are two worries for americans. one, will their personal and business bank accounts be surveiled by the irs? secondly, will the irs be tar the ifing again americans based on their beliefs? i believe that is the case. in both cases americans risk this. elizabeth: you know what happened, congressman? you know, the obama era targeting of conservatives, right? it was way worse than anybody ever realized. so sometime in 2013 it was reported to be under, under 300 groups, conservative non-profits, picked out for extra you know, scrutiny to get
tax-exempt status. 296. there were 466 groups. the conservative northern profits were scrutinized three times more than liberal groups. worse than realized. you guys on ways and means, you have work cut out for you. >> you may recall that scandal caused two irs commissioners to resign and lois lerner to resign as well. now we've seen tens of thousands of potential tax returns leaked to the media as well. so the worry here is unleashing 80,000 new irs agents. they will be focused not on the wealthy and not on big corporations, on farms, ranches, small businesses, for the most part. and then the irs surveillance targets frankly everybody. so americans ought to be very concerned because the senate and the president are still pushing for the irs bank surveillance to be put back in this big
4 trillion-dollar spending bill. elizabeth: so lawyers investigating what the obama era did, the irs did under obama, you know they went after liberal groups in its operations to try to soften perceptions in the media of political bias. we saw that, you know, i covered this story when i was at "the wall street journal." kennedy, john f. kennedy's irs commissioner cap lynn, he told me that kennedy's irs targeted daughters of scion, daughter the of the american revolution when they targeted tens of thousands of conservative non-profits. why do they do that? kaplan said to avoid appearing bias, partisan in the press. you have your work cut out for you. they could make move like that, to cover up what they're doing behind the scenes. what are you saying sir? >> we have to stay on our toes. that is one of the top priorities from the ways and means committee. there is no question. look, the obama biden
administration targeted those constitutional proisrael, probiblical, pro-education in a big way. the worry that will return in a terrible way. the truth of the matter is i don't care if you're republican or democrat, you don't want to give the irs the ability to target you based on your political bee leaves. we saw that during the vietnam war. we saw it during the civil rights years. we cannot bring that back but i fear unpresident biden and democrats in congress we'll see exactly that. elizabeth: they targeted conservative groups, talking about government debt, government spending. even obamacare, you know, words like tea party, israel were in there. that is how they pulled it out. congressman we love your christmas decorations too. thank you, congressman kevin brady. >> thank you. elizabeth: good to have you on. still to come the boarder crisis. new reports coming in, the white house is really free-lancing border policy ad hoc and on the fly.

(vo) reflect on the past, celebrate the future. season's greetings from audi. elizabeth: welcome back to the show, criminal defense attorney, former georgia police officer, phillip holloway. great to see you. what can california do to stop mass looting. a third straight day of it. san francisco, san jose, oakland, two suburbs of the bay area hit. los angeles hit too. what do you say?
>> liz, they can enforce the laws on the books. look what we're seeing is natural and expected consequences what is effectively the decriminalization of theft. there is no respect for private property. look, this is organized crime. that is the only way to look at it. may not be the traditional organized crime in the sense of the mafia but these are planned, this is coordinated, this is tearing apart the very fabric of society. it started last year in 2020 when our leaders, effectively said look, it is okay to go ahead and commit looting. okay? we're not going to enforce the laws on the books. guess what happens when you fail to enforce the laws. you take away the disincentives to commit crime. when you take away the disincentives of committing crime, crime goes up. it is natural. it is to be expected. it is lunacy, not to enforce these laws. elizabeth: let's stick with this. lapd is now warning as you give,
you know, give, say shoplifting we'll not prosecute it, we'll bust down shoplifting charges to just misdemeanors if it is under $950 in theft, they're saying this is a gateway to more crimes including at-home robberies and street holdups. lapd is really warning and worried about that. what do you say? >> yeah of course, it's a gateway. these are not just thefts. this is actually a burglary. when you go into a business, you have the intention of taking they're property from them, that is the definition of burglary. we're not talking about petty theft here. look, the legislature is the proper entity to decriminalize anything. when prosecutors do it by fiat, basically that says look you can do whatever you want. elizabeth: why do they get to be the loudest voices in the room, not victims, not taxpayers? how dare they fall down on what their job is supposed to do! they have a duty to protect.
now we see shoplifting charges, conviction rates dropping under the d.a. office in san francisco and los angeles. charging rates dropping out of san francisco, duis, hit-and-runs, petty theft, weapons, assault. who do they represent? do they represent anybody, or just those that will get them back into office? >> to borrow a phrase, elections have consequences, don't they prosecutors are asleep at the switch. it is dereliction of duty, a violation i think of the oath they take to protect and serve their constituents. when you allow people to, basically ignore private property laws and you have no respect for the concept of private property, like we've talked about before, society disintegrates. our system of laws is based upon priority property. elizabeth: when you talked about -- you're right it is based on priority property. we talked about this during the
riots. it was total disregard for small businesses. media, democrats wouldn't touch it. now you and i talked about it. small businesses, retail stores getting hit again and again. it is not fair. >> just the same thing we saw during the riots, maybe minus the fires. so we have essentially the same thing. it disrespect for private property. businesses cannot conduct their affairs. can you imagine trying to work behind a you know, a make-up counter or shoe department of a major department store when under the threat of being taken over by invaders who are criminal looters and criminal rioters. it is insanity. elizabeth: they're just pathetic. they're pathetic, if not do your job, step down, somebody else do it. phillip holloway, come back soon. up next former i.c.e. official ron vitiello on the border crisis. reports are that the biden administration is free-lancing border policy on the fly as chaos continues.

on the resources and willing to bring this poison into the u.s. in any way they can. because cdp and border patrol is distracted because of the worst surgeon the history of the border, you will see more things like this and cartel in criminal organizations taking advantage of the chaos that exists on the border today. liz: who's in charge of the white house? the "wall street journal" reports in detail how on its own the white house creates the worse border crisis in history. secondary mayorkas making up policy on the fly after progressive activists are complaining if they're talking about a story that basically when the dhs secretary signed off on deporting hundreds of patients in august the far left complained and flip-flopped and set the loophole, they arrived in july and qualify for our welcome policy the progressives are complaining and making chaos of the border, what you say? >> it's the worst we've ever seen it like you said.
having special interests controlling what the white house or the department does is bad for all of us. it puts more risk in the hands of agents and officers, people in border communities and how men at large. if you encourage people to come to the border because they get relief in the united states, they are going to call home sent for families and relatives to join them here in the united states. that is the situation since january 20 this year end the keep doubling down, guiding interior enforcement telling employers you're not going to do rates at businesses anymore and telling the rest of the public if you're here illegally and ice won't be looking for you so we've doubled down on the nonsense and it's obviously brought by the special interests and activists. liz: we hear you. the news of what the white house did just not deporting the initial wave of migrants in the summer, the crisis exploded into tens of thousands of the del rio
texas border so now you have this, people who live in the border communities all across america saying we are not going to vote for biden again, even hispanics are saying that because when you see tens of thousands swarming border patrol flooding the zone, border patrol distracted and then you have historic amount of methamphetamine and fentanyl pouring across the border and killing people children dying of taking just one pill, they thought it was maybe percocet but is laced with fentanyl. it's by, adderall and nx. what you say to that? is everybody putting it together, how it's damaging the border? >> it's terrible the risks we face in cdp and border patrol and people who live on the border and came to the country legally, they understand what's going on, we're not supposed to believe our own eyes when the surge of humanity comes across the border and leaves vulnerable
communities. people who live there no better, what not being talked about maybe on other networks were being discussed in the white house and how they will fix the problem. like you said, they've doubled down each and every time they've had a chance to make apology, opened the door and encouraged more to come. liz: how prominent is it for drug traffickers were , they are not humane people. when you're in that pipeline and young children and women are in the pipeline, they are abused and raped and terrible things happen to them. young men are sequestered and forced to carry loads across the border stuffed into small trucks and cars in the trunks of cars and tractor trailer brakes and
train cars, there's no humanity handed out in the hands of the cartel. everything happening on the border. liz: thank you for joining us and thank you for your service to our country. i am elizabeth mcdonald, you been watching the evening edit on foxbusiness. thank you for watching, have a good evening and join us again tomorrow night. ♪♪ kennedy: he said it was quote guaranteed somebody would get killed six people are dead. what if the county district attorney continue to push his progressive criminal reform agenda? the same agenda cap at the waukesha parade version back on the street days before the tragedy. earlier this evening, brooks was in for the first time for his first arraignment currently charged with five counts of intentional homicide with more charges are pending becau
