OPINION | This article contains opinion. Savage Takes is licensed to publish this content.

A horrific scene in Waukesha, Wisconsin sent at least 11 adults and 12 children to six area hospitals.

Fox News reports 5 dead and 40 injured during the time of this report. Some of the fatalities are children.

Video captured a red Ford Escape SUV plowing into a crowd at a local Christmas parade.

A man who is currently in custody in connection with the attack has been identified as 39-year-old Darrell E. Brooks Jr. of Milwaukee.

Brooks has an extensive criminal history dating back to 1999 that includes numerous violent felonies.

The Waukesha parade attack appears to be a potential case of domestic terrorism, Becker News notes, as it happened only 23 miles away from Kenosha, Wisconsin. Sources tell Fox News that this is not being investigated as terrorism at this time.

Just days ago, Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of murder charges after killing three individuals who were part of a “Black Lives Matter” riot that destroyed businesses in Kenosha for three nights last year.

The media has been surprisingly silent about the possible suspects and motivation behind the Waukesha parade attack.

There has been “unusually sparse chatter about the story, despite it being major breaking news,” Becker News adds.

The Waukesha police scanner revealed that law enforcement was conducting a manhunt in search of “a male black, 20s, long dreads, black mask, driving a white Ford.”

A news report also showed a witness who said it was a “black guy with dreadlocks.”

After capturing the alleged driver, the police scanner noted that law enforcement is still looking for two more suspects.

From Fox News:

Darrell E. Brooks Jr., a Milwaukee man with a criminal history dating back to 1999 that includes numerous violent felonies.

Multiple senior law enforcement sources told Fox News that the 39-year-old longtime felon was being questioned in connection with the attack.

Police said early Monday that a red SUV plowed into pedestrians Sunday evening, killing five and injuring at least 40 more. Some of the victims were children.

He has a long rap sheet and a number of pending cases. Brooks’ most recent court appearance came on Nov. 5 for charges including reckless endangerment, battery, domestic abuse, resisting arrest and bail jumping. He was out on $1,000 bail for those charges at the time of the attack.
