Original Message The Milwaukee County court system has irretrievably lost the transcript of the prior bail hearing for the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre suspect Darrell Brooks which resulted in him being set free just ten days before the horrific attack.

Brooks was released on $1,000 bail after he allegedly ran over his ex-girlfriend with his red Ford Escape on Nov. 2, two weeks before the parade rampage. Somehow, the court claims there was a glitch and his transcript was permanently damaged, an official told Fox News Tuesday.

“The digital recording is damaged,” she claimed after an attempt was made to order the Nov. 5 transcript for review. A court administrator told Fox5, “There are no recordings” due to “technical issues.”

Milwaukee County intake courts, where bail is generally set, are digitally recorded. The court records online show “digital recording” and “video conferencing” next to the hearing where Court Commissioner Cedric Cornwall set Brooks’ bail at $1,000. He posted the reference on Nov. 11, according to Wisconsin Right Now.

“We saw this coming,” Jackie Rupnow, who is with the Wisconsin Court Reporters Association, told Fox News. “It’s crucial, and now, there’s no record of it.”

Rupnow contends that the association warned the state Supreme Court two years ago that digital recordings should be closely monitored by trained professionals and they ignored the warning.

Brooks has a rap sheet that exceeds 50 pages in length going back to 1999. He’s a career criminal. Despite all of that and another pending felony case for shooting at his nephew during a fight in July of 2020, a junior prosecutor unbelievably decided to recommend $1,000 cash bail for Brooks. Court Commissioner Cedric Cornwall went along with the recommendation. His mother immediately bailed him out.
