A man accused of killing six people in an SUV and injuring dozens more during a riot at a Christmas parade in Wisconsin feels “dehumanized” behind bars.
Darrell Brooks gave his first interview after last Sunday’s horrific attack to Acesparks Digital on Wednesday at Vaukesha County Jail.
“I feel like I’ve become a beast,” Brooks, 39, said during a video interview in prison, Fox said.
The article said the accused killer – a career criminal and a registered child sex offender – calmly answered registered questions, but gave no information as to why he had killed the crowd.
Brooks did not receive other visitors after the attack, including his mother, who issued a statement on Wednesday accusing Wisconsin’s criminal justice system of failing.
The detainee reportedly hung up his phone and got up from a chair after hearing a reporter’s statement.
Brooks is said to have passed the child’s mother at a gas station in a red Ford Escape earlier this month but was released on “wrong” bail, prosecutors said.
Jackson Sparks, 8; Tamara Durand, 52; Jane Kulich, 52; LeAnna Owen, 71; Virginia Sorenson, 79; and 81-year-old Wilhelm Hospel were killed in the Nov. 21 attack. Another 62 people were injured.
