Waukesha Christmas Parade returns after attack last year
The Waukesha community came together Sunday to view the city’s 59th annual Christmas Parade and remember the victim’s of the tragedy last year in which an SUV drove through the parade, ABC affiliate KISN reported. Five people were killed in the attack, and dozens more were injured.
There was increased security this year, including a larger police presence, drones and cameras moderating the area and vehicle barriers, Waukesha City Administrator Kevin Lahner told KISN.
As previously reported, on Nov. 21, 2021, Darrell Brooks drove his SUV into the city’s parade. He was found guilty in October of 76 charges, which included six counts of first-degree intentional homicide.
Brooks was given life in prison with no chance of parole.
