Wikipedia and several news outlets are being criticized for seemingly
downplaying the severity of an alleged massacre on a Waukesha, Wisconsin
Christmas parade where a man plowed through a crowd of people killing six.

Internet users who search Wikipedia for Sunday’s attack, which injured
over 60 people in addition to the 6 fatalities, are met with a message
that says "A request that this article title be changed to 2021 Waukesha
Christmas parade incident is under discussion."

Additionally, users who search "2021 Waukesha Christmas parade car
rampage" are redirected to a site that says "2021 Waukesha Christmas
parade car crash."

Reporters and media outlets across the country have been criticized for
referring to the attack, which prosecutors say was intentionally committed
by 39-year-old Darrell Brooks in order to cause as much destruction as
possible, as a "parade crash" rather than an attack or massacre.

"He's charged with intentional homicide," Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra
tweeted in response to CBS News calling the attack a "crash." "It's not a

"‘Parade Crash’ cannot be the most accurate way to describe someone
purposefully ramming into people with his car at a parade," Washington
Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy added.

"It was not an ‘accident,’" Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson tweeted. "It
was not a ‘parade crash.’ The killer was not ‘fleeing a crime.’ All these
lies disproven by the evidence/charges. This was an intentional mass
murder by a cop-hating black supremacist released by Democrats. Those are
the facts. Break the narrative."

Eight-year-old Jackson Sparks died on Tuesday making him the sixth person
killed after an SUV plowed through the Christmas parade over the weekend.

The other victims were identified Monday as Wilhelm Hospel, 81; Virginia
Sorenson, 79; LeAnna Owen, 71; Tamara Durand, 52; and Jane Kulich, 52.

Brooks was charged Tuesday with five counts of first-degree intentional
homicide, a charge that carries a mandatory life sentence if convicted.
His bail was set at $5 million, and a preliminary hearing was scheduled
for Jan. 14. Additional charges related to Sparks' death and the more than
60 people injured will be coming later this week or next, said Waukesha
County District Attorney Susan Opper.
