The Milwaukee district attorney who let the Waukesha, Wisconsin, suspect out on bail days before he allegedly used his red SUV to mow down dozens of people and kill six at the city’s annual Christmas parade is a pro-criminal-release leftist who said it was “guaranteed” someone he let off easy would kill someone someday.

“Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into [a] treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody?” Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm flippantly admitted to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2007. “You bet.

“The state’s bail recommendation in this case was inappropriately low in light of the nature of the recent charges and the pending charges against Mr. Brooks,” Chisholm’s office said in a statement that conveyed apparent consternation that its progressive policies that set criminals free would ever lead to problems.

Chisholm’s office claimed it would investigate the incident that seemed to be inconsistent “with the approach of the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office toward matters involving violent crime, nor was it consistent with the risk assessment of the defendant prior to setting of bail,” but no one should be
