The Wisconsin Christmas Parade incident occurred just after 4:30 pm on Sunday night as spectators in the town of Waukesha, a Milwaukee suburb, watched the annual tradition. Driver of rampaging SUV tore through Waukesha Christmas parade leaving at least 5 dead and 40 injured. He was ‘fleeing a knife crime’.

At least 12 children are among the injured, with elderly people and a priest also confirmed as being hurt. “Oh my God, oh my God, no” shrieks went up as the red SUV tore through the barricades running over people, as seen in a chilling video from the scene:

The Daily Mail reports that police say a ‘person of interest’ is in custody but no arrests have been made and no motive has been disclosed. NBC reports that person has a long criminal history and was fleeing a knife fight at the time. The man who’s been reported as a person of interest is a local rapper.

Darrell Brooks Jr. is the local rapper in question. He went by the stage name Mathboi Fly. He released a music video a couple years ago set in Milwaukee wherein several times, you can see the red Ford Escape.

The red SUV used in his music video strangely looks like the one seen in the horrific videos of the Christmas Parade. YouTube pulled the music video from the original account, leaving this message in its place, “This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.” However, it’s since been re-posted by at least one other account.

Brooks Jr. even has a recent criminal history in the area . He got charged on November 5 with resisting an officer, bail jumping, 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety, disorderly conduct and battery. Time will tell if he was the real driver.

In search of simplicity and inner peace, Gunjan is basically a guy soldiering through his paranoia. You could say Art, Witty/Dark/Retard Humor, Movies, Anime, Post-rock/Black Metal/Hip-Hop/Shoegaze Music, Football, Creative Writing, Photography, Videography are his forte. A Jack of All Trades and a Master of Many. Dangerously bipolar. He can go on months without being productive and also work 12 hours straight. He's basically a lazy, procrastinating person. But if art and ideas hit him like sudden motivational sparks, he can invest sleepless nights on that. Drive to creating art: Sometimes guilt and inferiority complex. Sometimes sudden spikes of motivation seeing artists like yuumei, bosslogic, Kim Jung gi amongst others. Gunjan loves doing scribble art the most. It defines him. He says - 'It's like I'm lost and hoping to find a way out at the end. Expressing my chaotic, spontaneous mind, looking for inner peace in those infinite entanglements I create.' He loves to let the ink flow, losing control, losing myself completely in the act.' Once he was asked - 'why this constant urge of being good at everything? You are great at the things you do best. You don't have to be a master of every art. ' To that he replied - 'because that's how I work. I just don't like this idea of stopping at what I have already achieved. Limitations disgust me. I believe in becoming a jack of all trades and a master of many, plus this innate ability of being good at what I try doing and this upper hand of being a fast learner. I want to master all kinds of musical instruments, sports, forms of art.' He invests in ideas, brainstorming, creativity, flexibility, originality. Professionally however, he is that regular ‘IT guy’. He previously worked on roles such as Full Stack Engineer, Frontend Developer, UX/UI Designer, Digital Artist and Data Analyst. He is willing to use his flexibility and adaptability, coupled with the innate ability of being an extremely fast learner to use his words and wisdom here at Thirsty For News. Fun fact: He is obsessed with huskies, number "7", Germany, Japan, football, Naruto, Breaking Bad, cinema (in a broader perspective) Tldr: In search of simplicity and inner peace.
