Liberal reform of the U.S. justice system has been the focal point of investigative reports into what enabled the Christmas parade massacre.

The sole suspect in the attack, Darrell Brooks Jr., was put back on the street as a result of criminal bail reform despite having a history as a violent offender.

Brooks has an extreme history of multiple firearms and battery convictions, strangulation, sex offenses and drug charges. He has a 50-page rap sheet that spans three states dating back to 1999.

Nonetheless, he was received bail for only $1,000. He was released on bail just days before the deadly attack.

Betsy Brantner Smith, a retired police sergeant and spokesperson for the National Police Association, said, “These extremely liberal prosecutors who want to talk about restorative justice, and what that means is is that we are putting the public in danger by trying to give these people too many opportunities to re-offend.”

“It’s incredibly frustrating for law enforcement, and it’s just absolutely dangerous for our communities,” she added.

Brantner Smith agrees that high bail for minor and nonviolent offenses is unfair, but Brooks was a violent offender.

“When we arrest somebody, especially for a violent crime, and they’re out almost immediately and then they re-offend — that wears on the absolute soul of police officers,” Brantner Smith explains.

This allegedly led to the horrific scene in Waukesha, Wisconsin that killed six people, including one child, and injured at least 40 others.

Video footage captured a red Ford Escape SUV plowing into a crowd at a local Christmas parade.

Arresting officers observed the suspect Brooks as having “no emotion on his face.”

Even after the deadly attack, Brooks was offered bail yet again, which made Americans furious.

The courts again set bail for Brooks despite facing five felony counts of first-degree intentional homicide. The amount is $5 million.

Residents are furious that the court set bond for any amount:

More from Fox News:

John Chisholm, the left-wing DA from Milwaukee, announced Tuesday that his office was opening an internal investigation into its own bail recommendation for Brooks earlier this month. The assistant district attorney on the case requested a $1,000 sum despite Brooks’ staggering criminal past and an outstanding warrant in Nevada for bail jumping. The court granted it.

“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 announcing the investigation. “The bail recommendation in this case is not consistent with the approach of the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office toward matters involving violent crime.”

Earlier this year, another judge had to release Brooks for just $500 due to court scheduling backlogs that would have violated his constitutional right to a speedy trial, Chisholm’s office said Monday.

Chisholm’s counterpart in nearby Waukesha took a different approach in her bail request against Brooks Tuesday, making good on her pledge to seek something so high he would have no chance of paying it.
