The 39-year-old black male who allegedly killed six people and injured dozens more at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin by driving an SUV into the crowd reportedly kept driving with his head out the window after a body on the windshield blocked his view.
Seventy-one new counts were filed against the attacker — who will not be named in accordance with Daily Wire policy on not publishing names and photographs of alleged mass murderers – on Wednesday according to an amended criminal complaint CBS affiliate WDJT examined. The suspect now faces a total of 77 charges in the incident that left six people dead and dozens more injured.
On November 21, the assailant allegedly killed six people. “The medical examiner found that five victims died of multiple blunt force injuries, and the sixth, a child, died of ‘Craniocerebral Injures from blunt force trauma to the head,’ the complaint said,” CBS News reported, adding, “More than 60 people were injured, including at least 18 children, authorities said. … According to the complaint, [the attacker] hit people from eight different groups participating in the parade, as well as spectators, in a 5-block span.”
The six victims were identified as Jackson Sparks, 8; Tamara Durand, 52; Jane Kulich, 52; LeAnna Owen, 71; Virginia Sorenson, 79; and Wilhelm Hospel, 81.
The complaint adds, “At no time did [the attacker], as the operator of the SUV involved in the multiple collisions, make any reasonable effort to investigate what was struck, and that he failed to stop the vehicle as close to the scene of the accident as possible, and did not remain at the scene of the accident.”
The suspect complained in an interview with Fox News that was being “dehumanized” and “demonized.” Roughly a week after the massacre, Florida GOP governor Ron DeSantis eviscerated the media for their coverage of the story, saying:
You never actually hear the discussion about who committed this; what was the motivation? This guy was a career criminal let out on, didn’t really have any bail basically, should not have even been on the street, had clear, anti-white animus. And this was an intentional act. And it seems like, you know, for corporate press, they’re more apt to characterize a parent who goes to a school board meeting to protest bad policies as a domestic terrorist than somebody who intentionally rams an SUV into a crowd of innocent people.
“So, you have at least six have died, you have many more that have been injured,” DeSantis added. “I know many people are in the hospital. And so let’s just be clear, this was not a car just driving in. This was an attack by a felon who did that, who should not have been on the street and we’ll see what the actual motivation was. It very well may have been in response to what happened with Kyle Rittenhouse. And you have to wonder if that’s the case, almost surely, this guy’s view of Rittenhouse was was colored by all these media lies. He brought a rifle across state lines, that’s a lie. They said that the initial altercation with Jacob Blake, that Blake was unarmed, that’s a lie. They covered up Blake’s criminal history.”
