Darrell Brooks Jr – who has an extensive criminal past – has been charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide in connection with the deadly crash.

After the Milwaukee man plowed his vehicle through the Christmas parade, he walked up to a home and began knocking on the front door of resident Daniel Rider. And it was caught on doorbell camera video.

A timestamp on the video shows that it was recorded just after 5PM local time, which was about 20 minutes after Brooks allegedly tore through parade route barricades, killing six people and injuring dozens more.

The 24-year-old resident, who said he has lived in the area since March 2020, told NBC News he had just returned from a hunting trip and was home watching football when Brooks knocked on his door. Daniel didn’t have a clue about the tragedy that happened minutes before Brooks showed up on his doorstep.  He brought him in from the cold and made him a sandwhich, and then police showed up.

"This gentleman comes up and starts pounding on my door and my Ring doorbell goes off and I go and look and he’s saying that he’s homeless and he needs to use my phone," Rider told NBC. "I opened the door and I look and he’s like, ‘Hey man, I need to use your phone. I need to use your phone. I’m freezing out here.’ He didn’t have any shoes on. He was wearing a t-shirt and it’s freezing cold out and so I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ He’s like, ‘I’m homeless, man. I need to use your phone to get an Uber back to Milwaukee.’"

Rider said he eventually allowed Brooks into the house, gave him a jacket and made him a sandwich before giving Brooks his phone to make a phone call. Rider said he noticed police cars driving by during that time but was still unaware of what had happened.

”So I still am oblivious to anything happening in Waukesha and all of a sudden I look outside my street and I see a few cop cars drive by and I’m getting extra nervous. I was already nervous to begin with with him being in the house. So I saw cop cars drive by and I tell him, ‘You gotta get out of my house now. And so he was actually pretty compliant. He said ‘Are you sure? Why what’s going on? What’s going on.’ I said, ‘You gotta leave. You gotta leave.’" 

Brooks walked outside and ultimately gave Rider his phone and jacket back.

”I go back inside. I locked the door. I’m freaking out a little bit. I know my neighbor is calling 9-1-1," Rider said. "And he comes back to my door and starts pounding on the door and saying ‘My ID, I left my ID.’" 

That moment is captured on the doorbell video just as police begin approaching the home.

Brooks made his first court appearance Tuesday, where the state’s attorney noted the sixth victim, a child, had died from his injuries.

According to CNN, prosecutors “will consider a sixth homicide charge, due to the child’s death.” His bail was set at $5 million. Each count, if Brooks is convicted, carries a mandatory life sentence.

Arizona Cardinals defensive end J.J. Watt, who was born in Waukesha, has reportedly offered to cover the funeral costs for all of the victims killed.

Earlier Sunday (before the Christmas parade), Brooks was involved in a domestic disturbance and left the scene just prior to driving his SUV through the parade, according to the police chief.

At the time of the Christmas parade, Brooks was already out on bond from an unrelated offense. 

On November 16th, he was released on an extremely low $1,000 bond after he allegedly tried to run over a woman who is believed to be the mother of his child. 

On November 2nd, Brooks allegedly tied to run the woman over with his car while she was walking through a gas station parking lot.

"Officers observed tire tracks on her left pants leg," the criminal complaint read.

According to the police report, the woman told officers, “over the past month they have been fighting multiple times where he has injured her but stated she had no intentions of calling the police.” The victim said Brooks had threatened to kill her before, tried to choke her and has been often jealous and controlling of her.

The mugshot above is from his November 3rd arrest where he was charged with obstructing an officer; second-degree recklessly endangering safety with domestic abuse assessments; disorderly conduct with domestic abuse assessments; and misdemeanor battery with domestic abuse assessments.

Brooks was also charged with bail jumping because he was already out on bail following an incident from July 24, 2020, where he was charged with firing a gun during an argument with a relative.

Brooks reportedly told police he is supposed to be taking medication for his mental health issues. Brooks was asked if he had been diagnosed with a mental disorder, but his answer was blacked out on the police report.

"The State’s bail recommendation in this case was inappropriately low in light of the nature of the recent charges and the pending charges against Mr. Brooks," the office said in a statement. "The bail recommendation in this case is not consistent with the approach of the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office toward matters involving violent crime, nor was it consistent with the risk assessment of the defendant prior to setting of bail."

The D.A.’s office has launched an internal review into the decision.

Brooks is also a registered sex offender in Nevada. In November 2006, he pleaded guilty to statutory sexual seduction.

Prayers for the families of the victims!

The Family Attorney For Unarmed VA Man Shot By Police Says ‘Failure Of Communication’ Led To Shooting

The family attorney of the unarmed man shot and wounded by a Virginia sheriff’s deputy says the shooting occurred because of a “failure of communication” between the 911 dispatcher and deputies on the scene. Details inside…

The family attorney of an unarmed man shot and wounded by a Virginia sheriff deputy is speaking out with details about how the shooting occurred.

32-year-old Isaiah Brown was shot by a Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s deputy while he was on the phone with a 911 dispatcher. The deputy that shot Isaiah ironically gave him a ride about an hour earlier after his car broke down. An hour later, the deputy responded to a “domestic incident,” supposedly at or near that same home, which led to Isaiah being shot and critically injured.

On Friday, the bodycam footage and 911 audio from the shooting was released, which appeared to show the deputy yelling at Isaiah to “drop the gun” multiple times when he first pulled up on the scene. The cop told the dispatcher he had a “gun to his head” and then started yelling at the victim, “stop walking towards me” and “stop, stop" before shooting Isaiah.

It’s reported Isaiah was shot 10 times and is currently in critical condition. However, watching the bodycam footage only 7 shots were let off from the deputy’s service weapon, which you can see below.

WARNING – the video may be graphic to some:

And here’s the audio of the 911 call Isaiah made before he was shot:

In the audio call, Isaiah and his brother reference a firearm. Isaiah shared with the dispatcher how his brother will not let him in his mother’s room and that he couldn’t get into his car. The dispatcher tells Isaiah that his car is broken down and has been towed.

Isaiah then said “alright, give me the gun” to his brother. “No,” his brother responds in the background. The dispatcher asks what’s going on, and Isaiah replied: “I’m about to kill my brother.”

The 911 dispatcher responded, “don’t kill your brother” and proceeded to ask Isaiah if he was armed. He said no.

In a news conference at Spotsylvania Courthouse, David Haynes, the Brown Family attorney, said the deputy mistook the cordless phone Isaiah was on with the 911 dispatcher as a gun.

"This was clearly a failure of communication between the dispatch and the officers that arrived on scene," Haynes said. "As a result of those failures, Isaiah Brown is in intensive care."

After the 3:19 a.m. shooting, the deputy administered "life-saving first aid," to Isaiah. He’s currently fighting for his life.

Here’s the complete statement of David Haynes of The Cochran Firm – D.C., Brown’s family’s attorney:

"After viewing the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s deputy’s bodycam video and listening to the 911 call, it is evident that the tragic shooting of Isaiah Brown was completely avoidable. In the 911 call, Isaiah clearly told dispatch that he did not have a weapon more than 90 seconds before the deputy arrived. He told dispatch that he was walking away from the house and away from anyone else and was on the roadway by himself.

Isaiah was on the phone with 911 at the time of the shooting and the officer mistook a cordless house phone for a gun. There is no indication that Isaiah did anything other than comply with dispatch’s orders and raised his hands with the phone in his hand as instructed.

The deputy in question made multiple, basic policing errors and violated established protocols. The deputy was situated nearly 50 feet from Isaiah, was never threatened and should not have discharged his weapon.

The family is also requesting the release of the dispatch audio with the deputy leading up to the shooting. There was obviously a failure of communication between dispatch and the officer which led to this tragic event.

Isaiah is now fighting for his life as a result of these completely avoidable errors by the deputy and dispatch."

According to the transcript of the 911 call, when the dispatcher FIRST asked Isaiah if he had a gun he said YES. When she asked him again, he said NO. Every time she asked him if he had a gun after that, he said no. According to the transcript of the call, Isaiah answered YES and NO when asked by the dispatcher if he had a gun.

How did the officer end up back at Isaiah’s home?

Apparently, Isaiah and his brother got into an argument because his brother allegedly wouldn’t let Isaiah inside their mother’s room to retrieve his car keys and other items, according to audio of the dispatch call. The sheriff’s department categorized it as a domestic disturbance call.

"Isaiah was on the phone with 911 at the time of the shooting and the officer mistook a cordless house phone for a gun," Ryan Julison, spokesman for the Cochran Firm in Los Angeles, said in a statement. "There is no indication that Isaiah did anything other than comply with dispatch’s orders and raised his hands with the phone in his hand as instructed."

The Spotsylvania deputy is on administrative leave. His name was not released. The sister of Isaiah Brown, Yolanda Brown, spoke out emotionally about her brother and explained that the shooting is "a lot to process."

Peep the clip below:

Isaiah’s shooting comes on the heels of former Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin being found guilty of murdering George Floyd last year. Earlier this week, 42-year-old Andrew Brown Jr., a father of 7, was gunned down by North Carolina Sheriff’s deputies.

Literally minutes before Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all three counts in the murder of George Floyd, a white police officer shot and killed 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant Tuesday after arriving on the scene to respond to reports of an attempted stabbing in Columbus, Ohio.

The aftermath of the Derek Chavuin trial isn’t looking good.

Rochester Mayor Suspends Officers Who Pepper Sprayed & Handcuffed 9-Year-Old + Girl’s Mom Plans To Sue

The police officers who handcuffed and pepper sprayed a 9-year-old girl have been suspended amid outrage at the police misconduct in the viral body cam videos circulating online. Meanwhile, the girl’s mother made it known she plans to sue the city and the police department. The details, plus the police cam video of the child’s arrest inside…

Several Rochester police officers have been suspended for misconduct after police cam videos of the officers handcuffing and pepper spraying a 9-year-old girl went viral, which sparked outrage online.

According to Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren, the suspensions will last until the conclusion of an internal investigation.

“I can tell you that this video, as a mother, is not anything that you want to see,” said Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren. “This is not something that any of us should want to justify, can justify … And it is something we have to change.”

According to the Democrat & Chronicle, the department suspended one officer with pay and put two others on administrative leave. The officers’ names have not be released.

On January 29th, a woman called 9-1-1 due to a "vehicle dispute" at her Avenue B home in Rochester, according to the notice of claim. Once police arrived, the woman’s daughter reportedly ran outside, so the mother asked the officers for help. Apparently the child was "upset about her mother and step-father arguing."

Body cam footage released by the department (on Sunday) of what happened when police arrived has sparked outrage. The police cam footage showed the officers trying to deescalate the situation between the child and her mother, but things quickly escalated. The 9-year-old girl refused to get in the back of the police cruiser and that’s when misconduct from the police started. Officers were seen pushing the young girl in the snow in order to handcuff her as she screamed for her father.

During the struggle, an officer is heard telling the girl, “You’re acting like a child,” and she responded, “I am a child.”  Which, she is and should have been treated as such.

The child continued to refuse to get into the cruiser, so one officer pulled out pepper spray. After she defied commands to get her feet inside of the police cruiser, she was pepper sprayed in her face!

According to the police, the 9-year-old was threatening to harm herself and her mother.

Below are the clips of the police cam footage.

WARNING – The videos below could be TRIGGERING:

Mike Mazzeo – president of the Rochester Police Locust Club, the union representing uniformed police officers – held a press conference where he defended the officers. Hear his response below: 

I asked for more information about the officer who sprayed the pepper spray in the face of the 9-year-old child. Here’s Mazzeo’s response: He made a decision that he thought was the best action to take. #roc @DandC pic.twitter.com/yrTt6EaD9H

Also, Rochester Deputy Chief Andre Anderson defended the officers’ actions as well.

“They were trying to get her in the car,”  he said at a news conference Sunday. “[The officer] made a decision that he thought was the best to take. It resulted in no injury to her … Had they had to go and push further, and use more force, there’s a good chance she could have been hurt worse.”

New York State Attorney General Letitia James tweeted her office will be looking into the incident that transpired. She called the incident “deeply disturbing and wholly unacceptable”.


What happened in Rochester on Friday is deeply disturbing and wholly unacceptable. Such use of force and pepper spray should never be deployed against a child, period.

My office is looking into what transpired, but it’s clear that drastic reform is needed at @RochesterNYPD. https://t.co/SReNMFH6xd

The 9-year-old child was detained under the state’s mental hygiene law. After her arrested, she was taken to Rochester General Hospital where she treated and released to the custody of her mother.

Now, the mother of the 9-year-old child is prepping a lawsuit based on the alleged violation of her daughter’s constitutional rights. She has filed a notice of claim, which is the first step.

“I definitely want to see a change in the system,” Elba Pobe told NBC News correspondent Ron Allen on Tuesday. “I trusted the Rochester Police Department to do what they needed to do to help my daughter, not to abuse her or hurt her at all.”

“It’s not her fault,” Pobe said. “I don’t ever want her to feel like being pepper-sprayed was the option or the right way to handle her. Regardless of what the situation may have been, that’s still my first born, my baby, my child. You don’t treat anyone like that,” she said.

According to the claim the mother filed, police never told her that her daughter was “pepper-sprayed or that they struggled with the child, handcuffed her, and arrested her.” It’s reported the child was “injured” and is now dealing with “substantial pain.”

Members of the community are outraged and have taken to the streets to protest:

Joe Jackson’s Granddaughter Left Traumatized! She Claims Racist Woman Chased Then STABBED Her 7 Times While Calling Her A ‘N*****’

Yasmine Jackson – granddaughter to Joe Jackson – says she’s traumatized she was chased down and stabbed 7 times by a woman she didn’t know. She says the woman told her she attacked her because she was a “n*gger.” Get the shocking details about the horrific incident inside…

Yasmine Jackson – the granddaughter of late Jackson Family patriarch Joe Jackson – claims to be the victim of a racist attack that resulted in her being STABBED 7 times by a complete stranger.

A little backstory on Yasmine…

Joe Jackson fathered a daughter named Joh’Vonnie Jackson with a woman named Cheryl Terrell back in the 70s during a 25-year affair (while he was still married to his wife Catherine Jackson). Yasmine is Joh’Vonnie’s daughter.

Joh’Vonnie – who was born the day after Michael Jackson‘s 16th birthday – was never accepted by the Jackson Family, although Joe did try to integrate her into Jackson family life. Both Joh’Vonnie and Yasmine shared a special bond with Joe until he passed away in 2018.

A post shared by Yasmine Jackson (@yasminejackson_) on Jun 27, 2018 at 9:42pm PDT


25-year-old Yasmine posted to Instagram recently to share how she is the victim of a racist attack that left her fighting for her life. The Las Vegas native – who works as a nurse – said she was standing outside of her apartment complex having a conversation with her friend when a woman she had never seen before started chasing them.

”This woman chased me down and started stabbing me. She said it’s because I was a n*gger and that’s all I could hear while I was being stabbed. I can’t move my neck at all,” she wrote in a caption on Instagram where she shows her injuries.

WARNING: Graphic photos below.



After getting split up from her friend, she began to have an asthma attack as she was running away from her attacker. She said she ran up to two guys, who didn’t offer to help. There were also people recording the incident and they didn’t help either, she shared. When the attacker caught up to Yasmine, she pulled out a knife and began stabbing her. She said she began to lose energy fighting the woman off of her.

Finally, a few people stepped in and began yelling at the woman before a man pulled her off of Yasmine. The woman allegedly called the man a n*gger as well.

When the cops showed up, the woman was arrested, and Yasmine was given a blood transfusion.

Yasmine said the police are charging the woman with felony battery with a deadly weapon, but she wants the woman to be charged with attempted murder. Yasmine also wants the attack to be considered as a hate crime since the woman allegedly shouted racial slurs at her while stabbing her.

”I feel like she deserves attempted murder and also this is a HATE CRIME. SHE CALLED ME A NIGGER & THERE ARE WITNESSES,” Yasmine wrote. She mentioned activist Shaun King in her caption in an effort to have her story shared with the world as she seeks justice.

I was stabbed 7 times right by my house because “I’m a nigger”. This woman chased me down and started stabbing me. She said it’s because I was a nigger and that’s all I could hear while I was being stabbed. I can’t move my neck at all. I’m scared to be alone. I asked people to help me because she was stabbing me and nobody helped. Until someone did, actually a few people did & I am thankful for you. I pray to God that if you have any kind of hatred in your heart towards black people that you heal it. I didn’t deserve this, nobody does. Oh & btw I’m still fucking proud to be black. @shaunking , please help me. They only are charging her with a felony battery with a deadly weapon. I feel like she deserves attempted murder and also this is a HATE CRIME. SHE CALLED ME A NIGGER & THERE ARE WITNESSES SHARE SHARE SHARE SHARE PLEASE!!!!!!! Update: THEY BOOKED HER FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER, NOW TO WORK ON THE HATE CRIME CHARGE. HER NAME IS ANGELA!!

A post shared by Yasmine Jackson ⚤ (@yasminejackson_) on May 30, 2020 at 10:24pm PDT


Understandably, Yasmine is traumatized following the tragic incident and she’s moving immediately.

"This incident has left me extremely traumatized and I plan on breaking my lease and moving out of those apartments until I’m mentally prepared enough to move on my own again. Now I want to focus on bringing this lady to justice. I need all of the support that I can get to make this happen because this will be a long court battle. This is also something that will affect me for the rest of my life," she wrote.

Yasmine has started a GoFundMe to help with her medical costs. You can donate here.

This is horrific on so many levels. Not only has she been fighting to save COVID-19 patients’ lives, she literally was in a real-life fight for her own life from a racist lunatic. We hope she receives the justice and healing she deserves!
