Milwaukee has a corrupt DA who sets criminals free while harassing Republicans. His policies led to Sunday’s mass murder in Waukesha, Wisconsin and he knew it would years ago.
We reported that DA John Chisholm only charges one-third of all referrals from the police with crimes in Milwaukee County Wisconsin. His policies allow thousands of felons and other criminals to walk free after committing horrible crimes.
Chisholm in 2016 took possession of records from 159 conservatives in his state. He told them to tell no one. His unprecedented searches labeled the “John Doe Investigations” were politically motivated and likely criminal.
Chisholm was also all for getting rid of bail for people like Darrell Brooks, who killed 6 people Sunday and injured 50 more. But Chisholm knew events like this would happen. He said so in 2007 according to the Daily Mail:
The district attorney whose office let out Waukesha parade killer Darrell Brooks on a $1,000 bond three weeks ago previously admitted he knew his laxed bail policies would lead to killers being set free and murdering others, saying flippantly in a 2007 interview: ‘You bet, it’s guaranteed to happen.’
John Chisholm was elected as Milwaukee County District Attorney in 2007 and he immediately started advocating for lower cash bonds for criminals, like Brooks – a felon with a history of domestic violence charges who was most recently locked up for running over the mother of his children.
Milwaukee hasn’t ever abolished cash bond nor has the state, but prosecutors in the DA’s office advocate for lower amounts.
