OUTRAGE surrounds Waukesha parade suspect Darrell Brooks being granted bail before the deadly attack as the Milwaukee District Attorney's office has admitted to being at fault.
Before the deadly incident, Brooks — the 39-year-old suspect who was taken into custody in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Sunday night — was released on bail on November 11.
On Monday, the Milwaukee County District Attorney said Brooks should not receive an "inappropriately low" bail of $1,000 given his previous charges, with the most recent case dating from a November 2 incident of domestic violence.
"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," Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm's office said in a statement on Monday, according to Fox News.
"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."

Brooks' most recent bail for $1,000 cash was posted on November 11 — after he allegedly ran a woman over with an SUV.
According to the DA's office, the suspect has multiple pending cases in the county, and another bail which was first set at $10,000 — later dropped down to $500.
An internal review of the bail recommendation decision is now being conducted, the DA's office revealed.
In the case where the bail was $1,000, a woman whom Brooks had a child with told police he intentionally ran her over in his car after a fight, with Brooks pleading not guilty to those charges.
Another criminal complaint that was filed in July 2020 shows Brooks is facing felony charges such as recklessly endangering safety and possession of a firearm.
Brooks is set to be charged with five counts of intentional homicide in connection to the Sunday parade tragedy.

Brooks, a convicted sex offender, also had an active arrest warrant in Nevada for failure to obey sec offender laws, according to the Washoe County Sheriff's Office.
He was convicted in 2006 of fathering a child after having consensual sex with a 15-year-old girl.
Brooks was placed on probation until he was arrested for failing to follow sex offender laws in 2016, and has an open arrest warrant after jumping bail on that charge.
