When I heard the name TAMARA DURAND on the news about the Waukesha parade tragedy, I hoped it wasn't any relative to the Durand I've known almost all my life.

She's his daughter in law.

He and I have kept in touch over the years, but I never met her.

What the hell is wrong with some people. Fixed it for you slammer. There’s more people that have IQs above 70 than given credit for but it seems the ones that want to be inhumane will be no matter what. Who thinks like that? (That’s a rhetorical question.)

I believe I read that he was trying to run over his girlfriend and unfortunately, others were in his path.

My thoughts and prayers are to all who suffered because of this person.

Sherry, I think that he had previously tried to run over his girlfriend ..... one oif the several reasons he was out on a whopping $1000 bond.

a warrant out for Brooks’ arrest in Nevada, where he is accused of failing to appear at a court hearing in 2016. He was scheduled to answer a charge that he failed to notify authorities about a move, as he was required to do because he was on the state sex offender registry, police in the city of Sparks said.

Brooks was convicted in 2006 of felony statutory sexual seduction for impregnating a 15-year-old girl, police said.

Wisconsin criminal records on Brooks go back to 1999 with an arrest for battery, in which he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six months behind bars and three years’ probation.

He was sentenced to 50 days behind bars in 2002 for possession of THC, the main compound in cannabis.

Brooks got a 20-day sentence for a 2003 arrest for misdemeanor resisting or obstructing an officer.

A 2005 arrest for misdemeanor obstructing an officer led to a two-day sentence.

After Brooks pleaded no contest to felony strangulation and suffocation in 2010 and to violating his probation, he was sentenced to 11 months behind bars and three years’ probation.

He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor resisting or obstructing an officer in 2011, leading to a 37-day jail sentence.

In 2011, a second incident of THC possession resulted in a 180-day jail sentence.

Misdemeanor bail jumping and another THC offense at the end of 2011 led to another 180-day jail sentence.

Whomever decided to let this slug out on such a low bail needs to stand accountable as well.

There are serious calls to have whoever signed off on the low bail, removed from his job.

Here are some pictures of the people who died. (Taken long before the parade,so,  maybe heartbreaking, but not gory.)

The driver never should have been in society given his past record. A failure of our judicial system.
