#7  I found the following bio on her findagrave.com memorial site:
Folk Figure. Born Norma Des Cygne Smallwood, she was a full blood Cherokee Indian from Tulsa, Oklahoma. While as a student at Oklahoma State University, she entered the Miss America Pageant in 1926 and was crowned the first Native American to win the title. During the year of her reign, she had an acute business sense demanding a fee for appearances. She reportedly made over $100,000, more than either Babe Ruth or the President of the United States. She was later married to George H. Bruce, President of the Aladdin Petroleum Corporation.

-Lurid Crime Tales-
Waukesha massacre suspect Darrell Brooks faces new charge for death of 8-year-old boy
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] It was last Sunday when 39-year-old career criminal Darrell Brooks
...racist would-be rapper, actual wife beater and career criminal, responsible for the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre...
was arrested over driving a SUV that sped through a crowded Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin.The local reporting out of Fox 6 in Milwaukee says that the online court records were amended to add an additional charge of first-degree intentional homicide. Documents in the Waukesha massacre case argue that Darrell Brooks intentionally drove through the crowd of people.

The sixth count of first-degree intentional homicide is added to the initial five charges made against Waukesha massacre suspect Darrell Brooks last week.

The timing of the circumstances had created a discrepancy since 8-year-old Jackson Sparks died from his injuries from the car attack around the same time court proceedings first went underway.

Visitation for Jackson’s funeral is scheduled for this Thursday at 4 p.m. with funeral services at 7 p.m. the same evening. Last week’s memorial for Jackson Sparks included photos of him in his baseball uniform, and his teammates put it together to honor their fellow player.

"When not playing baseball, or slam-dunking basketballs throughout the house, Jackson enjoyed fishing, catching frogs, and playing with his brother Tucker and his dog Qi’ra," his obituary says.

The attack in Waukesha renewed scrutiny on bail reform measures as Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm had admitted Darrell Brooks got out on an "inappropriately low" bail of $1000. That set of charges involved another altercation where it’s alleged Brooks used his car as a weapon.

Elsewhere: the Waukesha massacre suspect’s social media profile displayed a litany of racially radicalized posts, and his criminal history includes a previous threat to bomb a casino in Nevada.

Despite GoFundMe’s decision to remove a campaign trying to raise $5,000,000 USD in bail money for Darrell Brooks, activists have still attempted to crowdfund for the person suspected of killing six people and injuring dozens more.

#1  Is Wisconsin a Death Penalty State?

Capital punishment in Wisconsin was abolished in 1853. Wisconsin was one of the earliest United States states to abolish the death penalty, and is the only state that has performed only one execution in its history. Wikipedia

So, all this carnage, lost and destroyed lives, will only bring x number of life sentences.

Therefore, any further stories on this tragedy is for entertainment purposes...

Have some

#2  any further stories on this tragedy

"Tragedy": right. The advent of "SUV Violence."

But wait, that was last week. Tragedy or no, I can't find any stories at all this week.

If it's been memory-holed, it didn't happen. Amirite?

Venomous Sarcasm Tuned On:

So I ask, will the DA/Courts up the bail another $1 million?

Since Wis. does NOT have a DEATH PENALTY, after the states 1st and its only execution, ironically held in Kenosha.

So at best those seeking justice can only hope he slips in the prison shower. Where he would be found to have broken his neck, arms, fingers, legs, back, nose, lose his teeth and with multiple bars of soap in dark places.

Back to normal RANTING.

NOTE: The effort to repeal the state death penalty was lead by State Sen. Sholes (D, LR,GP), who just happened to be the editor of the Kenosha Telegraph newspaper. He used his newspaper to fight and repeal the WIS. death penalty.

BTW: Again I as. Where does the Bail $$$$ go once this pile of Pig Crap is placed in prison for life. Does BLOM get it or whom?

#13  What is keeping the Kenosha court from trying Brooks separately over this death, and setting a separate $5 million bound for this additional charge? IMNSHO they should have set $5 million bail for each of the casualties.

Afghanistan
MoI Rejects HRW Report of '100' Extrajudicial Killings
[ToloNews] The Islamic Emirate has "killed or disappeared "more than 100 Afghan former security members" in four provinces including Kandahar, Helmand
...an Afghan province populated mostly by Pashtuns, adjacent to Injun country in Pak Balochistan...
, Ghazni and Kunduz in less than three months since taking control of Afghanistan, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said in new report.

The HRW conducted the research between August 15 to October 3, 2021, and interviewed at least 67 persons who are mostly in the mentioned provinces.

"The Taliban
...Arabic for students...
leadership’s promised amnesty has not stopped local commanders from summarily executing or disappearing former Afghan security force members," said Patricia Gossman, associate Asia director of the Human Rights Watch. "The burden is on the Taliban to prevent further killings, hold those responsible to account, and compensate the victims’ families."

The report added that Taliban leadership has directed former security members to surrender and receive a letter that can guarantee their safety under the amnesty program, and so using this strategy the Taliban identified Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) members.

"If someone misuses the Islamic Emirate’s name and does this, the perpetrators of such cases should be identified and be punished," said Sadeq Shinwari, a military expert.

Human Rights Watch asked the Islamic Emirate to give up such Dire Revenge killings, but the Islamic Emirate Ministry of Interior is denying the claims of the report.

"We reject this report, if they own documents proving the issue they can share them with us so we can arrest and legally act against the criminals. The Islamic Emirate never chased or killed former security forces. Some former military forces may have lost lives as a result of personal hostility," said Saeed Khosti, MoI front man.

The report further said the United Nations
...aka the Oyster Bay Chowder and Marching Society...
should maintain and fully implement its mandate to investigate human rights
...which are often intentionally defined so widely as to be meaningless...
violations and abuses in Afghanistan.
Al Ahram adds:
Taliban forces have hunted down former officers using government employment records and have targeted those who surrendered and received letters guaranteeing their safety, the report said. In some cases, local Taliban commanders have drawn up lists of people to be targeted, saying they committed ``unforgivable'' acts.

Taliban fighters have carried out night raids on homes to detain former security officers or threaten and abuse their relatives into revealing their whereabouts, it said. In multiple cases it documented, the bodies of those who had been taken into detention were later found dumped in the street.

While some ``opportunistic'' killings took place immediately after the Taliban takeover, ``killings and disappearances appear to have become more deliberate since then as Taliban commanders...have used informants and information from the previous government to locate others'' linked to the former armed forces, it said.

In one case cited by the report, a former fighter in the National Directorate for Security named Abdul Qadir went into hiding in Kunduz province after the government fell, then resurfaced to live with his in-laws. On Aug. 25, he was stopped at a checkpoint by Taliban fighters. He admitted he had been an NDS member, but pointed out the amnesty. The fighters detained him anyway, and three days later his body was found by a river.

In Ghazni province, a former local police commander named Saadat disappeared after going to the market in mid-October. Residents later brought his body to his home, telling relatives he had been killed on the road by armed men they believed were Taliban.

The Taliban leadership in September announced the creation of a commission to investigate reports of rights abuses and crimes by their own fighters. But the commission has so far only announced arrests of a few members for theft and the dismissal of others for corruption, Human Rights Watch said.

``The Taliban's unsupported claims that they will act to prevent abuses and hold abusers to account appear so far to be nothing more than a public relations stunt,'' Gossman said.

Taliban’s ops on Daesh in Nangarhar province, three Daesh affiliates killed four Taliban wounded
[KhaamaPress] Security officials of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in Nangarhar
The unfortunate Afghan province located adjacent to Mohmand, Kurram, and Khyber Agencies. The capital is Jalalabad. The province was the fief of Younus Khalis after the Soviets departed and one of his sons is the current provincial Taliban commander. Nangarhar is Haqqani country..
province said that their special forces have conducted six-hour operations in the historic provincial capital Jalalabad that inflicted casualties to both parties.

As per the officials, the operations that targeted the residence of the target assassin of ISIS (ISIS-K), were carried out in the police district first of the historic provincial capital.

The police commander of Jalalabad city Tahir Mubariz said that the operations that were conducted on the residence of Attaurahaman killed three ISIS-K affiliates and maimed two more including Attaurahman.

Mubariz added that a woman also includes those killed who died after her explosive went kaboom!.

"No civilian has been harmed during the operations and only two Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
fighters have been maimed slightly." Said Mubariz.

In the meantime, eyewitnesses said that the operations took about four hours that inflicted financial loss to the people in the neighborhood.
Al Ahram adds:
Taliban forces have targeted people they suspect of supporting the Islamic State group in eastern Nangarhar province, an epicenter of IS attacks, the report said. In the province's capital Jalalabad, a fierce, 8-hour gunbattle erupted Tuesday when Taliban forces raided a suspected hideout of IS militants, witnesses said. The deputy provincial police chief, Tahir Mobariz, said that during the fighting, a woman and a man in the house detonated suicide vests, dying in the blasts, and third person was killed by gunfire. Two suspected militants were arrested, he said.

Africa Horn
Tens of thousands protest in anti-military marches in Sudan
[IsraelTimes] Security forces fire tear gas at anti-coup protesters in the Sudanese capital, as tens of thousands march in the latest demonstrations against a military takeover that took place last month.

Protesters take to the streets in Khartoum and other cities around the country to demand that the armed forces stay out of government.

Deposed Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok was reinstated earlier this month under military oversight in a deal that many in the pro-democracy movement oppose. Since the generals seized power on Oct. 25 and rounded up more than 100 civilian government figures, protesters have repeatedly taken to the streets.

In a video streamed online from the Bahri neighborhood of Khartoum, a few protesters throw stones as security forces repeatedly fire tear gas and use sound bombs to try to disperse them.

Sudanese security forces have cracked down on the rallies and have killed some 43 protesters so far, according the Sudan Doctors’ Committee, which tracks protester deaths.

The group says that the latest death is that of a protester who died from hemorrhaging in the skull after being badly beaten by security forces during a march last week.

Somalia: NISA officers destroy Al-Shabaab weapons in Mogadishu
[Garowe] A cache of weapons was on Monday destroyed by National Intelligence Security Agency [NISA] officers within the Somali capital, Mogadishu, in the latest crackdown targeting al-Shabaab
...... al-Qaeda's tentacle in East Africa...
Death Eaters in the Horn of Africa nation.

The weapons, authorities said, were unearthed during a planned operation by the sleuths, who had investigated the plan in Huriwaa District, north of the capital Mogadishu. The weapons were kept in a bunker, authorities added.

Dufaan, a military wing within the NISA team executed the operation, the best ever to be carried out in recent weeks. During the mission, three al-Shabaab Death Eaters were arrested and will soon be arraigned in court to respond to various issues.

Some of the weapons seized during the operation include mortar shells and drums which al-Shabaab commonly uses to make mortar bombs. The team targets civilians, security forces, and government officials with the bombs.

NISA officials said the operation was successful due to the cooperation extended by the community in flushing out the al-Shabaab krazed killers. The team vowed to lock al-Shabaab out of the country in the coming months.

"The NISA forces are always grateful to the Somali community for their continued cooperation with the National Intelligence Service," said a statement from NISA.

For the past several months, security forces have in the past unearthed al-Shabaab bunkers in various parts of the city with recent incidents in Elasha Biya on the southerly outskirts of Mogadishu. The capital has been one of the al-Shabaab targets in recent weeks.

Last week, a kaboom in Mogadishu killed eight people and maimed over 20 as al-Shabaab grabbed credit. The attack was condemned by several international actors in Somalia including the United Nations
...boodling on the grand scale...

Al-Shabaab terror group attacks Ethiopian troops, airport in Somalia
[Garowe] A Somali-based al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist group attacked a military base and an airport in the country's South West State in the early hours of Tuesday, killing at least one soldier and a civilian and injuring several others, a police official confirmed.

The al-Shabaab
...... the personification of Somali state failure...
terrorist group used heavy weaponry in the attack on the airport and Æthiopian military base in Baidoa city, where the forces were operating under the African Union
...a union consisting of 53 African states, most run by dictators of one flavor or another. The only all-African state not in the AU is Morocco. Established in 2002, the AU is the successor to the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), which was even less successful...
Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), according to Abdi Ali Mohamud, a police officer in the city.

"A military base in Suuqa Hoolaha neighborhood in the city was also attacked by the snuffies and one soldier was killed and another maimed," he said.

"We don't know the exact number of people killed or injured in the airport attack," he said, adding that "we know a civilian was killed and several others were maimed."

A resident in the area, Haawo Ahmed Suleyman, told Anadolu Agency over the phone that the Somali National Army and al-Shabaab snuffies were engaged in a fierce firefight.

When Anadolu Agency contacted AMISOM officials, they refused to comment on the airport mortar attack.

Baidoa is a major city in South West State, located 243 kilometers (150 miles) southwest of the capital Mogadishu.

This has been the second attack since Baidoa's parliamentary elections began earlier this week.

Caribbean-Latin America
Bangladeshis Jailed in Mexico over Attempts to Enter US Illegally
[BenarNews] At least 230 Bangladeshis trying to enter the United States illegally from across the southern border are languishing in Mexican jails after being arrested between January and August, according to a letter from the Bangladesh embassy obtained by BenarNews.

Those seeking get to get to the U.S. end up paying at least 1.5 million taka (U.S. $17,500) at different stages.
Ninety percent of those arrested come from one district in Bangladesh, said the letter from the diplomatic mission in Mexico City asking for advice from the Bangladeshi government. In Dhaka, home ministry officials who received it said they had been working to curb international human smuggling networks.

"You will find some desperate people (Bangladeshis) who resort to illegal means to go abroad at any cost. They always try to go to European countries and America. But, I think, their numbers have come down," Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal told BenarNews on Tuesday.

German court fines ISIS turban Taha Al-J. €50k on top of life sentence for death of Yezidi slave child
More on yesterday’s story — see here and here. He probably fainted over the $57,000 fine, not the life sentence.
[IsraelTimes] A former member of the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
group was convicted by a German court on Tuesday of genocide and committing a war crime over the death of a 5-year-old Yazidi girl he had purchased as a slave and then chained up in the hot sun to die.

The Frankfurt regional court sentenced Taha al-J.,
...more fully Taha al-Jumailly, and beyond that Taha Sabah Noori al-Jumailly. The ISIS fighter and member of the morals police was arrested in Greece in May 2019, then extradited to Germany...
an Iraqi citizen whose full last name wasn’t released because of privacy rules, to life imprisonment and ordered him to pay the girl’s mother 50,000 euros ($57,000).

German news agency dpa quoted the presiding judge, Christoph Koller, saying it was the first conviction worldwide over a person’s role in the systematic persecution by IS of the Yazidi religious minority.

According to German prosecutors, al-J. bought a Yazidi woman and her 5-year-old daughter as slaves at an IS base in Syria in 2015. The two had been taken as prisoners by the gunnies in northern Iraq at the beginning of August 2014 and had been "sold and resold several times as slaves" by the group already.

The defendant took the woman and her daughter to his household in the Iraqi city of Fallujah and forced them to "keep house and to live according to strict Islamic rules," while giving them insufficient food and beating them regularly to punish them, according to the indictment.

The girl’s mother, who survived captivity, testified at both trials.

A MURDER TRIAL WITH NO BODY
The accident theory is supported by the fact that Taha A.-J. took the Yazidi girl directly to a local hospital. The defense has even cast doubt on whether the child had in fact died.

In May, citing an employee of the Fallujah hospital and a distant uncle of the defendant, the defense told the court that Rania had been cared for in the hospital for a week.

Then a man from IS is said to have taken her away. Today she lives in Idlib, in northern Syria, the defense says while admitting evidence of this is difficult to obtain.
The girl's mother Nora T.,
...now 49, she was captured by ISIS in Iraq in 2014 with her three children, then sold for the first time with her daughter, whom their captors renamed Rania, in the ISIS slave market in Mosul while her sons were taken elsewhere...
who survived captivity, testified at the Frankfurt trial.

Yazidi activist Natia Navrouzov, who works as the legal advocacy director at multinational NGO Yazda, told DW the ruling was "truly historic" for recognizing the Yazidi genocide.

"So we really hope that this case will have a domino effect and that other countries will follow the example of Germany," she said.

"And we also wanted to tell countries that if they don't have the evidence, they can come to organizations such such as Yazda."

The organization was able to identify the surviving victim and put her in touch with the authorities in Germany, Navrouzov said.

According to United Nations estimates, 7000 Yazidi women and children were enslaved and sold by IS and many remain missing.

For Nora T., all that remains of her family is one son. She lives with him in a secret location in Germany, under a witness protection program, and is supported by human rights lawyer Amal Clooney and represented by German lawyer Natalie von Wistinghausen.

#5  Merely enforcing the laws by arresting, convicting, and giving prison sentences instead of letting miscreants walk free would take car of most of the problem. Once off the street, none would be causing the kinds of problems that need killing.

Which is why the Progressive multi-billionaires have been teaming up to finance district attorneys who don’t believe in prosecuting criminals.

Should have been.
After BLOM attacked a family in a car.
The partents decided to use this as teaching lesson. So they proceeded to demostrate how to properly use a car as a means of self defense. They were later fined $150.00 for litering.
