Author’s Take

RedState collected a great deal of information, mostly from social media, to connect Darrell E. Brooks to the incident. Taken as a whole, it’s easy to make the judgement of Brooks’ connection to the violence.  The question is whether these meet thresholds of credibility and circumstantial or anecdotal data to rise to the level at which they can be confidently included in mainstream reporting.

Taking a step back, one must consider what the reporting would be if a firearm was used instead of a vehicle. Will we hear calls from politicians to ban “fully automatic military style assault vehicles?”
