Waukesha parade attack suspect Darrell Brooks feels ‘dehumanized’ in jail



The man accused of killing six people and injuring dozens more with his SUV during a rampage at a Wisconsin Christmas parade feels “dehumanized” behind bars.

Darrell Brooks gave his first interview since last Sunday’s ghastly attack to Fox News Digital Wednesday inside the Waukesha County Jail.

“I just feel like I’m being monster — demonized,” Brooks, 39, said during a video chat at the jail, according to Fox.

The accused killer — a career criminal and registered child sex offender — calmly answered questions from the outlet but offered no insight as to why he allegedly mowed down the crowd, according to the article.

Brooks had not received any other visitors since the attack, including his mother — who had released a statement Wednesday, accusing Wisconsin’s criminal justice system of failing him.

The inmate reportedly put down his phone and rose from his chair when informed of the statement by the correspondents.

Brooks allegedly ran over the mother of his child at a gas station with his red Ford Escape earlier in the month, but was released on “inappropriately low” bail, prosecutors said.

Jackson Sparks, 8; Tamara Durand, 52; Jane Kulich, 52; LeAnna Owen, 71; Virginia Sorenson, 79; and Wilhelm Hospel, 81 were all killed in the Nov. 21 attack. Another 62 people were injured.
