In the wake of the gruesome murders in Waukesha, Wisconsin where 6 people died and dozens more were injured, police have identified Darrell Brooks as a lead suspect. Brooks was released on bail of $1,000 leading up to the butchery in Waukesha, despite an extensive criminal history including violent crimes and being a Tier 2 sex offender in the state of Nevada. His bail has been set at $5 million while he awaits trial for his alleged role in the Waukesha massacare. Reports have emerged that the Milwaukee Branch of Black Lives Matter is attempting to fundraise for Brooks’ bail. RT Reports–
“A Milwaukee Black Lives Matter GoFundMe page claims to be raising $5 million for a nonprofit bail organization. It comes days after GoFundMe shut down a BLM fundraiser for Darrell Brooks, the suspect in a Waukesha car attack.”
Twitter users questioned the timing as well as the dollar amount set for the fundraiser, believing it to be questionable considering Brooks’ bail is also set at $5 million.
“Why is the Milwaukee branch of trying to raise $5,000,000 … the exact amount of bond needed for #WaukeshaMassacre perpetrator Darrell Brooks???” Questioned one user. After the fundraising effort came under scrutiny, the amount was reduced to $4,000,000.

The organizer behind the fundraising page, Holly Zoller, has been involved in controversial activism in the past. Zoller was accused of handing out riot gear to members of antifa to assist in rioting in Louisville after a jury acquitted most of the officers involved in the Breonna Taylor case. Last week, GoFundMe pulled a page attempting to fundraise for Brooks bail after it violated their terms of service, prohibiting users from fundraising for someone accused of a violent crime.
