The suspect in the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre rapped about being a “terrorist” and a “killer in the city” before the horrific attack, according to songs he posted online.
39-year-old Darrell Brooks is facing six charges of first-degree intentional homicide for driving his SUV into the crowd, killing 6 people, including an 8-year-old child, and injuring dozens more.
However, police said the incident in Wisconsin was not terror-related and alleged that Brooks was leaving the scene of a domestic dispute that had taken place just minutes earlier.
Waukesha Police Chief Dan Thompson added that there was no pursuit in the moments before the rampage.
Thompson said that there was no evidence the bloodshed Sunday was a terrorist attack or that Brooks knew anyone in the parade. But he gave no further details on the domestic dispute.
Wannabe rapper Brooks had said, “yeh we terrorists” and “killers in the city” according to his song Loudmouths.
The track – posted to Brooks’ Soundcloud page under the name MathBoi Fly – goes on “hope you right with god cos casket with you headed for.”
Brooks also wrote an anti-Donald Trump rap and declared “f*** the pigs”, it emerged on Monday.
One of his songs includes the lyrics: “They gonna need a cleaner for the s*** we did, all my killers Gacey where them bodies hid.”
Another song from his SoundCloud page says: “Sliding through the city with no safety on.”
Other lyrics include “f*** Donald Trump” and “f*** the pigs.”
In one of his music videos, the rapper also uses an SUV that appears to be the one that mowed down people in Waukesha.
Brooks had been free on $1,000 bail posted just two days before Sunday’s deadly event.
He had been charged with crimes 16 times since 1999 and had two outstanding cases against him at the time of the parade disaster.
That included resisting or obstructing an officer, reckless endangering, disorderly conduct, bail jumping, and battery for the Nov. 2 incident.
One pending case against him included an allegation that he deliberately hit the mother of his child with his car in early November after a fight.
