At the time that Brooks allegedly plowed his SUV into the Christmas parade crowd on Sunday, he had been released from jail on what Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm called an "inappropriately low" bail amount of $1,000. Critics have claimed that liberal district attorneys' bail reform efforts enabled the tragedy.

Fox News reached out to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the Marshall Project, The Brennan Center for Law and Justice, The Bail Project, Essie Justice Group and the ACLU, seeking comment on whether these bail reform organizations considered Brooks' bail too high or too low. None of them responded to the request for comment.
