^^^I have not followed this case since it happened.  Is the convicted perpetrator mentally ill or just malicious?

So he was convicted on every count, apparently, even assaulting his girlfriend before the murders. Has Wisconsin the death penalty?

Nope. Not had the death penalty since... 1853.

Well, he's certainly going all the way with it. It was God's fault, man.

 The guy is a for real moron, I've been following the case a bit.
He's one of those moorish sovereign citizens 
 He is not mentally ill, he is just really stupid and just clever enough to fool himself.
 By the end of the trial he managed to at least learn some legal terms, he used the same strategy he used to win street arguments berate and mutter loudly under his breath and stare menacingly .

So, 36 life sentences?

How’d you calculate that?

That's what Fox news wrote.  "six consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole for each count of first-degree intentional homicide. " times six counts of homicide is 36 life sentences.

I imagine that the sentence that Fox news was attempting to write was: "six consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole, one for each count of first-degree intentional homicide."

I also suspect that Terry was pointing out someone whose job it is to write clear English and at least one person whose job it is to edit articles for clarity managed to F up a pretty simple sentence.

Do they even have editors, or even proof-readers anymore?  I suspect the reporters write their own copy and it goes straight to publication.  Editors and proof-readers are expensive.  (there probably is someone with the title of editor, but basically an executive editor who draws a bigger salary but doesn't do anything)

Well, they had a series of pruf readers for press releases and so on where eye wurjed, and I was the last of three to proofreed the wordiage.  I still found errors.

Even 2day I can be a pain in the ass about it.  I will forgive errors which actually increase readability (e.g, ending a sentence with a proposition, dangling modifiers) and communication  in common speech, though.

Well, maybe I'm just a general pain in the ass anyway, proofreading skills notwithstanding.

But that 36 life sentences gave me a good laugh.

Well-deserved, though.

yes, it was hilarious to watch!! I was laughing me buttoks off.
If I am correct, he has to finish one term at a time - for all the guilty verdicts - it's gotta be like 200 years or something - it is really really funny https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-98ufy-eyI

To me the funny part was the 6 X 6 = 36  life terms according to the way the article was written.

Otherwise, there was nothing funny about the situation.

You are right, the actual punishment was 6 (same as number of dead victims) life sentences to be served sequentially, not concurrently, and without parole possible.

Sentences like "19 years to life" are possible, though. Such was Phil Spector's sentence for the murder of Lana Clarkson.

I can't resist adding to a poster's question about them not having editors by pointing out that nowadays too much reliance is placed on automatic text editors.  Thus the meme I saw recently:  "Spellcheck is my worst enema."

  I would bet it would have, Kenosha is an hour away iirc, It seems to be a very blue/woke area .
 The Waukesha police kneeled to BLM, when that wave of woke police doing that happened I was truly sickened , I knew somehow that appeasing the violent left was a huge mistake-I feel it contributed to Brooks mindset  ( i have no proof tho )

Good insight. I wish more people would realize the cost of complicity with criminals. Like the old protection racket:  "You need to buy our 'insurance' just in case 'something' happens to your grocery store.  You wouldn't want that to happen, would you?  Who knows... a fire, an earthquake..." (Releases grip on "client's" lapels and solicitously brushes off the "client's" now-wrinkled lapels with an evil grin  "The 'premium' is only $175 once a week.  Every week." he adds.)
