    Denver (CBS4) – More than 100,000 people will line the streets of Downtown Denver Saturday for the Parade of Lights. The holiday parade tragedy in Wisconsin last month has led to increased safety measures at parades nationwide. Denver Police says the department has taken additional measures for this year’s parade to ensure a safe event.  READ MORE: 'There Was No Effort': Denver Police Officer Fired For Failing To Render Aid To Shooting Victim (credit: CBS) “Every year we have security and police meetings about a month out and then again a few days out. We work very closely with the Denver Police Department and several private security teams. We always have plans in place. And this year, Denver Police are upping their security even more but they always have layers and layers of security,” said Sharon Alton, Senior Vice President of the Downtown Denver Partnership.   DPD says they have an extensive plan for the parade. For safety reasons, DPD does not disclose specific ways in which they are working to ensure safety for the event or the number...
              moreby Newt Gingrich   The willful avoidance of facts and deliberate obscuring of what happened in Waukesha, Wisconsin is a low point in American journalism nationally. It is stunning how much the propaganda media distorted and misreported the massacre at the Christmas parade last week. Here are the facts: The alleged killer, Darrell Brooks Jr., is an African American who was previously released from jail on an “inappropriately low bail” after reportedly running over the mother of his child with a car. He has openly talked about using a vehicle to kill people and posted anti-white racism on social media. On Nov. 21, he reportedly used his car to murder six people and maim more than 60 others (including children and senior citizens). These horrendous facts apparently violate the established media’s narrative of inherent white racism and black victimization. The propaganda media’s answer has been to simply avoid the facts and focus on reporting which can at best be described as inadequate and at worst be described as maliciously dishonest and misleading. The amazing thing is that this was not...
    Jim Vondruska/Getty Images CNN posted an odd tweet on Sunday that read: “Waukesha will hold a moment of silence today, marking one week since a car drove through a city Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring scores of others.” Waukesha will hold a moment of silence today, marking one week since a car drove through a city Christmas parade, killing six people and injuring scores of others.https://t.co/QMNccpBI0y — CNN (@CNN) November 28, 2021 A car did not drive itself through the parade, of course. A person, Darrell Edward Brooks, rammed a car into a crowd, killing six people and injuring more than 40 others on Nov. 21 in the Wisconsin town. People, not cars or guns, kill and are charged and put on trial. The car or gun is only the mechanism that the perpetrator uses to carry out their violent acts. That tweet is not the only example of media reporting so poorly on the incident. The press on both sides of the ideological spectrum has failed to properly cover the tragedy – a tragedy in it...
    Joe Domask (pictured) has filed a motion to withdraw from Darrell Brooks' cases in Milwaukee Waukesha parade 'killer' Darrell Brooks' lawyer has moved to withdraw from his Milwaukee cases due to a 'conflict of interest' over his 'relationships and familiarities' with the Waukesha victims' families.  Attorney Joe Domask, who represented Brooks in Milwaukee for allegedly shooting at his nephew and driving over his ex-girlfriend, filed the motion on November 23, court documents revealed.  Domask did not represent Brooks in the Waukesha case where the 39-year-old is accused of mowing down crowds at the Waukesha Christmas Parade, killing six and leaving dozens injured. In that case, the suspect remains represented by public defenders Jeremy Perri and Anna Kees.    In his motion, Domask claimed he would have to withdraw due to his 'direct and indirect' relationships with the Waukesha 'families, groups, organizations, and the communities affected' by Brooks' actions and that it has 'created concurrent conflict of interest' in the Milwaukee case, the motion revealed.  Domask claimed his 'familiarities' with those close to the victims pose a 'significant risk' that his 'representation' of Brooks, 39,...

    There are no plans for President Joe Biden to visit Waukesha, Wis., after the Christmas parade attack earlier this month that killed six people, according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.    'Obviously any president going to visit a community requires a lot of assets ... requires taking their resources,' she said after being asked during her regular briefing on Monday why he had not yet visited. 'And it's not something that I have a trip to preview at this point in time, but we remain in touch with local officials.'  A vigil was held in Waukesha on Sunday afternoon to mark a week since an S.U.V. plowed into a Christmas parade. Darrell Brooks, 39, has been charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide, a charge that carries a mandatory life sentence if convicted.  More charges are expected to follow. Investigators have yet to reveal a motive. White House Press Secretary said she had nothing to announce about any trips when asked why President Joe Biden had not visited Waukesha, Wisconsin 'Obviously any president going to visit a community requires...
    Fox News host Trey Gowdy sounded off on the left’s push for criminal bail reform in light of the Wisconsin parade tragedy that was caused by a career criminal, who was released on bail just days earlier. Darrell Brooks was charged with intentional homicide after driving his SUV through a crowded street commemorating the holiday season, resulting in the deaths of six people ages 8 to 81 and injuring dozens more.  Gowdy, during his show "Sunday Night in America," questioned why Brooks, a convicted felon and career criminal, had been allowed to post a measly $1,000 bond in Milwaukee County on felony and misdemeanor charges just days before the deadly incident.  "Last Sunday night in Wisconsin it was not Santa Claus coming down the parade route. He is not a career criminal on bond," Gowdy told viewers. "It was Darrell Brooks Jr., a lifelong criminal who has been hurting people for most of his life." "He was on the sex offender registry out on bond again, running over parents, grandparents and children. This night of joy in Wisconsin ended with agonizing grief," Gowdy continued. "That grief quickly turned to anger because Darrell Brooks Jr. never should have...
    Former New York Times writer Nellie Bowles: "Someone (Joe Rogan?) is radicalizing cars." Outkick founder Clay Travis: "Did the car have a driver @cnn? The amount of media covering for the murderer here is embarrassing." California congressional candidate Buzz Patterson: "A 'car' did this? Not a human being with intent to kill and maim and being held on $5 million bail? You guys are a joke." Florida political candidate Martha Bueno: "You all know @CNN is a political hack, but seriously, a 'CAR DROVE THROUGH A PARADE?!' Who writes for CNN? Obviously it's someone who's scared to call the murder of 6 what it really is: An act of domestic terrorism. Please hire actual journalists CNN." Former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright: "It's been a week since the #WaukeshaMassacre. CNN framed it this way, with a car taking the blame." The Daily Wire writer Cabot Phillips: "CNN wants you to think this massacre was committed by a driverless car because the race of the driver doesn't fit their narrative." Townhall writer Gabriella Hoffman: "'A car plowed through the Farmers Market.'...
    The uncle of an 11-year-old girl plowed down by an SUV during the Wisconsin Christmas parade massacre is sharing horrific details of the aftermath and says he hopes the career criminal charged in the ambush is jailed for life. U.S. Army veteran Ryan Kohnke – whose niece Jessalyn Torres remains on a ventilator a week after the attack – said he wants Darrell Brooks Jr. properly punished for allegedly killing six people and wounding 62 others. ‘I hope he spends the rest of his jail in isolation,’ Kohnke told Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine. ‘I don’t think he’ll ever see general population because they’re afraid of what might happen to him.’ Kohnke said he was standing at the sidelines of the November 21 parade in Waukesha and watched helplessly as a red SUV broke through a safety barricade and barreled into the crowd.  Jessalyn, who was participating in the parade with the Waukesha Xtreme Dance group, had just passed through and Kohnke’s thoughts soon turned to his family’s safety as a man in the SUV began mowing down the...

    (CNN)The Milwaukee County district attorney whose office sought low bail leading to the release of the man accused of running over holiday paradegoers in a nearby suburb has been a longtime champion of efforts to reduce mass incarceration by using the discretion afforded prosecutors. Darrell E. Brooks, 39, of Milwaukee, now faces murder charges after authorities said he killed six people and wounded more than 60 others by driving through the Waukesha Christmas parade on Sunday. Brooks was out on bail for two separate allegations of violence, including one where he is accused of using a car to run over a woman less than three weeks earlier. Milwaukee prosecutor John Chisholm's office released a statement Monday morning, saying his office erred in seeking bail of $1,000 in the most recent case involving violent allegations against Brooks. He posted bail about a week after he was charged and was released from custody. More than a dozen remain hospitalized after deadly Waukesha parade crash"The State's bail recommendation in this case was inappropriately low in light of the nature of the recent charges...

    Waukesha parade suspect Darrell Brooks’ release on just $1,000 bail weeks before the deadly attack prompted Milwaukee’s district attorney to announce an investigation into his own office’s request for such a low sum. But it was a court commissioner, not a low-level prosecutor, who agreed and cleared the way for Brooks' release. Court documents identify Cedric Cornwall as the commissioner present at Brooks' arraignment.

    Outrage has built around the Waukesha Christmas parade tragedy this week after the suspect was revealed to be a career criminal dating back decades who was released on bail just weeks before the attack. Fox News Digital spoke with legal experts regarding whether the district attorney or the city could face legal action from the victims for the handling of Darrell Brooks and the attack that left six dead and dozens injured. WAUKESHA LOCALS FURIOUS AFTER LEARNING CHRISTMAS PARADE SUSPECT WAS OUT ON $1,000 BAIL "There is no viable claim against the district attorney who exercised prosecutorial discretion on charging and trial decisions, including bail demands," Fox News contributor and legal scholar Jonathan Turley told Fox News Digital.  Darrell Brooks is escorted out of the courtroom after making his initial appearance Tuesday in Waukesha County Court in Waukesha, Wisconsin.  (Mark Hoffman/Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel via AP) Personal injury lawyer Matthew Haicken, founding partner of Haicken Law, agreed.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Crimped by the coronavirus pandemic last year, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is returning Thursday in full albeit with precautions. Balloons, floats, marching bands, clowns and performers — and, of course, Santa Claus — will once again wend though 2 1/2 miles (4 kilometers) of Manhattan streets, instead of being confined to one block or sometimes pre-taped last year. Spectators, shut out in 2020, can line the route again. High school and college marching bands from around the country have been invited back to the lineup; most of last year’s performers were locally based to cut down on travel. The giant balloons, tethered to vehicles last year, are getting their costumed handlers back. “Last year was obviously symbolic. It wasn’t everything we would have liked to see in a parade, but they kept it going,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news briefing Wednesday. “This year, the parade’s back at full strength.” “It’s going to be a great sign of our rebirth,” he added. The Thanksgiving parade is the latest U.S. holiday event to make...

    Macy’s / Twitter Snoopy and Captain Kirk both appeared in the 1968 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. For Americans all over the nation, the Thanksgiving holiday represents a time for families to gather together and appreciate what they have. Sometimes that means a good meal featuring the traditional fare, including cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, stuffing, and turkey.  While eating is a big part of the day, what is on the television too plays a significant role as well. The National Football League has thrown its flag in the middle of Thanksgiving, broadcasting three games. But before kickoff and the cheers of sports fans ring out from living rooms coast to coast, the broadcast of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is nearly as important. Starting in 1924, the parade used to be a celebration of the Christmas holiday. It looked very different from what fans have come to expect today. According to the New York Times, when the parade started, it was a “procession,” which featured animals from the Central Park Zoo, including tigers and elephants.  When the famous balloons...
    THE Waukesha parade "killer" Darrell Brooks became aggressive in the moments before he was tackled by police officers, one resident exclusively told The Sun. Darrell Brooks began acting hostile after Daniel Rider told the 39-year-old rapper, who allegedly drove into the parade crowd, to leave his home after he invited the frantic suspect inside. 6Darrell Brooks is seen outside Rider's home, shortly after the deadly Christmas parade attackCredit: Daniel Rider / TMX 6Brooks is seen holding his hands up outside of Rider's homeCredit: Daniel Rider / TMX Rider's doorbell camera captured the moments before Brook's arrest shortly after Sunday's deadly Christmas parade attack - but the un He recalled how the suspect called his mom before becoming aggressive and getting taken down by police.

    Darrell Brooks is seen in his 2007 mugshot after being arrested  in Nevada  The man accused of murdering five after mowing them down in his car during a Wisconsin holiday parade was previously convicted for threatening to bomb a casino, DailyMail.com can reveal. Darrell Brooks, 39, was busted in March 2007 for calling in a bomb threat to the $43-per-night Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, Nevada. The would-be rapper was put on probation after being convicted of conspiring to disturb the peace - a gross misdemeanor - and was banned from the Nugget for life. The circumstances of why he placed the threatening call are unknown.  His rap sheet also includes a conviction for statutory sexual seduction – the term for sex with a minor aged 16 or under in Nevada law – in January 2007 and another of failing to inform the police of a change of address while a registered sex offender. The latter two counts both relate to the mother of his child – named in Wisconsin court papers as 'EAP' – who he punched and tried...

Now she’s getting ready to bundle up, hit the streets of Manhattan and be part of the big one for the first time.

    Milwaukee's District Attorney John Chisholm admitted on Monday that the $1,000 bail that released Darrell Brooks Jr., the man who went on to kill six people at a Christmas parade in Wisconsin, was 'unacceptably low.' But Brooks, a repeat offender, was just one of several men to have been charged with serious crimes, who had recently been given relatively low cash bails and diverted away from pre-trial detention by Chisholm and Milwaukee judges. On November 11, Kenneth Burney was charged with four counts of attempted murder. Burney reportedly shot and wounded at least three Wauwatosa police officers in a hotel, while he awaited trial for serious charges including 'disorderly conduct with use of a dangerous weapon as a habitual criminality repeater and with domestic abuse assessments.' Burney was reportedly released on a $1,000 signature bond in March. A signature bond does not require a defendant to deposit any money. It only asks for a promise to pay the bond if they fail to show up at trial. On November 13, Michael Dabney was charged with 1st-Degree Intentional Homicide, while he...
    A Wisconsin resident who let the suspect in the Christmas Parade killings into his home following the massacre has revealed how he sat on the sofa, called his mom and 'lied about everything.' Daniel Rider said he was sitting in his living room watching the Cowboys against the Chiefs when Darrell Brooks started banging on his door, pleading for help on Sunday night. Doorbell footage shows a frantic Brooks, 39, hammering on the front door and claiming he was waiting for a Uber - just 20 minutes after he plowed into the parade leaving six dead, including an eight-year-old boy. Rider had no idea of the carnage that had just unfolded in downtown Waukesha and decided he should let the shivering man into his home, remembering a recent sermon his mother had told him about helping the homeless. 'So I was like, "Oh! This was my chance to help somebody. I'm going to warm him up and give him some food,"' Rider told CBS. He lent Brooks his jacket and made him a sandwich, and also gave Brooks his phone...

    Tucker Carlson said the liberal media will not probe the motives behind the Waukesha parade massacre because it will prove their woke bail and prison reforms are responsible after it was revealed the suspect was recently released on a $1,000 bail after a domestic dispute.  Liberals are calling to abolishing federal prisons - which would release criminals such as sex traffickers and murderers - and quashing ‘excessive bail’ just a day after Darrell Brooks, 39, drove his red SUV into a Christmas parade, which injured 62 and killed six.      'The media and local authorities have decided to speak for [Brooks],' Carlson said on Tuesday.  'And the main thing they want you to know is that these killings had absolutely nothing to do with the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict just two days before. Nothing whatsoever. The timing is just one of those amazing coincidences.' Carlson commended the media by saying: 'This has to do with the [Rittenhouse] verdict. That's the obvious conclusion. Is it true? Again, we have not confirmed it, but we can be absolutely certain that the national media will...
    The suspect accused of plowing into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin and killing five on Sunday shared social media posts promoting violence towards white people. Today, eight-year-old Jackson Sparks was named by relatives as the sixth victim, having died in hospital from his injuries. A now-deleted Facebook account belonging to Darrell Brooks Jr., 39, showed the alleged killer had encouraged knocking 'white ppl [the f**k] out' and also appeared to support the controversial Black Hebrew Israelites.  Brooks was charged on Tuesday with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide and is expected to face more charges.  Police are yet to determine the motive behind the deadly rampage, however, records reveal Brooks is a career criminal with a rap sheet dating back to 1999 and had been bailed twice this year.  Facebook posts also show the amateur rapper, who went by his stage name, MathBoi Fly, had shared a series of links and memes relating to race and white privilege in June 2020, when protests erupted over the death of George Floyd.  Five of the six victims - all white - who...

    Conservatives are blaming George Soros, claiming falsely that the Jewish philanthropist has somehow helped release criminals onto the streets. Conservatives have wasted no time in politicizing the recent Waukesha, Wisconsin, tragedy, in which a driver plowed his car into scores of people participating in a local holiday parade. The most recent theory promoted by some Republicans is antisemitic in nature and suggests billionaire philanthropist George Soros is somehow responsible for what happened. "The massacre in Waukesha is horrifying. It was also preventable," Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) tweeted Monday. "Soros prosecutors unleash havoc and violence when they take power. It is their goal. When we take back Congress, Republicans will take on the Soros prosecutors and stand up for the victims of crime." Conservative lawmakers have specifically tried to blame the liberal donor for giving funds to local district attorney campaigns, to back bail reform, citing the fact that the Waukesha driver behind Sunday's incident had posted bond just over a week earlier, after being charged with reckless endangerment and skipping bail...
    Milwaukee Black Lives Matter activist Vaun Mayes speculated Sunday that the Christmas parade massacre in Waukesha, Wisconsin, could be a harbinger of “revolution” — then backed off the sentiment days later as more information came out about the case. “I don’t know. Now we’ll have to wait and see because they do have somebody in custody. We may have to wait and see what they say about why this happened,” Mayes said of the deadly parade incident during Facebook Live stream on Sunday evening (archive here), as lights from first responders’ vehicles flicker on his face. “But it sounds possible that the revolution has started in Wisconsin. It started with this Christmas parade.” Black Lives Matter activist Vaun L Mayes @YungLz at the scene of the Waukesha parade attack: "It sounds like the revolution has started," mentions hearing from a source who believes Darrell Brooks may have been motivated by the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict.pic.twitter.com/ayp3BjbfZ7 — Nobody (@TheNoboddy) November 22, 2021 Mayes offers more commentary on what he sees throughout the live stream, watching a local woman give an interview to a news...
    After an SUV plowed through a holiday parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin on November 21, killing five people and injuring 48, including many children, hard-right pundits treated the subsequent arrest of Darrell Brooks like a gift. Jennifer Van Laar, the editor of popular conservative blog Red State, tweeted, "FIFTY PAGES in Darrell Brooks' criminal record. Drugs, violence, crimes of moral turpitude, sexual offenses. But hey, let's allow him to bond out on $1000 even though he's charged with jumping bail." Alt-right troll Jack Posobiec and COVID-19 disinformation spreader Chuck Callesto echoed this idea. Turning Point USA's Benny Johnson went a step further, blaming Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm for the incident. So did Mike Cernovich, who ripped into Chisholm as a "Soros DA," despite Chisholm never receiving money from George Soros or his affiliated PACs. DA Chisholm, as a writer at Red State put it, is allegedly a "radical leftist who has sought to institute 'criminal justice reform' via 'bail reform.'" It is insinuated that Chisholm quietly ushered Brooks out on a serious and recent domestic violence charge on $1,000 bail,...
    The horrific events in Waukesha – which left five dead and dozens injured – have prompted questions about how law enforcement might have failed to protect the Wisconsin town.   In recent days, public attention has shifted to the fact that the suspect who plowed his SUV into a crowd gathered for a Christmas parade on Sunday, Darrell Brooks, was released from jail earlier this month on what Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm called an "inappropriately low" bail amount. WAUKESHA CHRISTMAS PARADE ATTACK: MULTIPLE MILWAUKEE DANCING GRANNIES MEMBERS KILLED: LIVE UPDATES "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," Chisholm’s office said in a statement.

    A Black Lives Matter activist has claimed the Waukesha Christmas parade attack which killed five people was linked to the acquittal of teenager Kyle Rittenhouse. Activist Vaun Mayes speculated that the attack which saw suspect Darrell Brooks Jr, 39, drive a car into a crowd of parade goers in Wisconsin on Sunday was the 'start of a revolution'. Mayes claimed that the horror that unfolded during the Christmas parade was linked to growing anger over the verdict in the Rittenhouse trial, which saw the teenager acquitted on charges stemming from killing two men and wounding another during the unrest that followed the shooting of a Black man by a white police officer.    Activist Vaun Mayes speculated that the attack which saw suspect Darrell Brooks Jr, 39, drive a car into a crowd of parade goers in Wisconsin on Sunday was the 'start of a revolution' Video footage showing the moment a speeding red Ford Escape SUV ploughs into a marching band during a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Sunday Speaking from the scene of the parade attack on Monday night,...
    (CNN)You know what they say, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is all fun and games until one of the balloons goes down. Since the parade started marching balloons around Manhattan in 1927, the massive floating figures have occasionally come untethered, blown clear away, or been punctured, stabbed, deflated and subjected to all sorts of ignominy. Macys Thanksgiving Parade: 6 fun things you may not knowWhile most of the balloon incidents are at least a little humorous (the hubris of man, to create such beasts!), a small handful of accidents have ended with people being seriously injured. Some of those cases have led the parade's organizers to change the rules regarding their most beloved -- and problematic -- parade participants.

    (CNN) — The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is all fun and games until a balloon goes down. Since the parade started marching balloons around Manhattan in 1927, the massive floating figures have occasionally come untethered, flown away, or been punctured, stabbed, deflated and subjected to all sorts of ignominy.

    MANCHESTER UNITED are on their knees after having to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following a brutal run of form. The Red Devils have lost seven of their last 13 games in all competitions, culminating in Saturday's 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Watford. 3 3Michael Carrick takes charge of Man United tonightCredit: Getty With Solskjaer since dispensed with, Michael Carrick takes interim charge for tonight's Champions League clash with Villarreal. While the Norwegian was the hero in 1999, Carrick was part of United's last side to win the famous competition back in 2008. But he is currently faced with a bunch that are nowhere near as good as that golden team. Edwin van der Sar at that point was a more reliable goalkeeper than David de Gea. While Wes Brown was more dependable than this season's erratic Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Luke Shaw has had a disappointing time since his Euro 2020 heroics, and would be edged out by Patrice Evra.

    A maroon Ford Escape driven by 39-year-old rapper Darrell E. Brooks smashed through protective crowd barriers surrounding the Christmas parade in Wauksha and drove dementedly into the celebratory crowd, mowing down children and elderly people in a deadly rampage   It's hard to imagine anything more sickening than what happened at the Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday evening. The festive spirit was joyfully high as hundreds of happy families lined the streets to cheer on marching bands and a well-known local troupe of 'Dancing Grannies'. Then, in the flash of a speeding car, the merry scene was replaced by one of utter carnage. A maroon Ford Escape driven by 39-year-old rapper Darrell E. Brooks smashed through protective crowd barriers surrounding the parade route and drove dementedly into the celebratory crowd, mowing down children and elderly people in a deadly rampage. Five adults were killed and over 48 people, including many kids, were injured – some critically. Among those who died were three members of the Dancing Grannies.

    Just two days before Thanksgiving, students in Waukesha, Wisconsin, who would normally be basking in the warmth of the upcoming holidays are instead reliving the carnage they saw Sunday as a man mowed down dozens of people in an annual Christmas parade—something one witness described as “very similar” to a war zone. “It was the most horrific experience of my life, actually,” one witness said of the gut-wrenching moment she saw a vehicle heading toward where her younger sister was marching in the parade. “All of a sudden, out of nowhere, comes the SUV flying down,” Keli Kowalewski recalled to WISN 12 News. Kowalewski’s sister, who was not physically harmed, was marching with the Catholic Memorial Poms dance team when a suspect identified by police as Darrell Brooks allegedly deliberately mowed down parade-goers, killing at least five and injuring 48. Student performers on the dance team and in the Waukesha South High School marching band were front and center for the tragedy. “The car was like this close to us and sped right past us to my left,” Isabella Maher,...

    DANCING With The Stars crowned Iman Shimpert as its Mirrorball trophy winner during tonight’s shocking season 30 finale.  He made history as the first-ever NBA star to make it to the finale. 1 Due to her long history as a dancer, many viewers felt it was “unfair” for JoJo to win Dancing With The Stars - where most celebs have limited, if any, ballroom experience.  On tonight’s finale, JoJo and Jenna scored another 40 out of 40 during their first dance of the night which was a Tango and Foxtrot fusion.  Judge Carrie Ann Inaba gushed that the pop singer was a “woman transformed” who “shined so brightly” on the dance floor.”  “That was pure magic,” guest host Julianne Hough exclaimed.  However, fans did not agree that the pair winning was the right call, with one writing: “Jojo gonna win this but she’s literally a dancer so I still think it’s unfair!” Most read in The US SunCASHING IN Families eligible for ‘surprise’ $8,000 payment after 'Thanksgiving' cash issuedTROUBLING PAST Rapper fled domestic dispute before parade crash & once 'ran...

    Career criminal Darrell Brooks - the prime suspect behind the Waukesha attack - benefited from the DA's lenient policies Milwaukee's District Attorney faces furious questions about why alleged Waukesha parade killer Darrell Brooks was out on the streets after it emerged he's been bailed twice this year despite a lengthy criminal history stretching back to 1999.  John Chisolm released a statement Monday admitting Brooks, 39, should not have been released on a $1,000 bond earlier this month following an alleged hit-and-run incident involving his girlfriend.  But Chisolm, 58, has previously boasted of letting a nonprofit opposed to cash bail audit his office, and has spoken repeatedly about trying to reduce his county's prison population.  He has done so despite murders in the area spiking by 95 per cent between 2019 and 2020, with 2021 on course to see as many homicides as last year.   Boasting a lengthy rap sheet dating back to 1999 with more than 15 arrests in the state of Wisconsin alone, career criminal Brooks, 39 - who is also a registered sex offender - benefited from the...
