The New York Post had more on the story:
An emotional Police Chief Daniel Thompson said cops have ruled out terrorism as a motive for the tragic incident, but confirmed that Darrell Brooks, who had been held as a person of interest in the case, has now been charged.
“The subject was taken into custody a short distance from the scene and we are confident he acted alone,” Thompson told reporters. “There is no evidence that this is a terrorist incident.”
NEW: We’ve learned the suspect who drove through the Christmas parade is Darrell Brooks.
He posted $1,000 bond on Nov 11, and the DA is now saying that bail was “inappropriately low”: pic.twitter.com/AyyDpzYPsE

The same peeps that claim to know Kyle Rittenhouses's mentality/intention was, based on rando social media post & despite the evidence will now insist that Darell Brooks was just simply fleeing in fear & nothing else plays into it.

Becker News was critical of the idea that domestic terror was ruled out by police as a motive:
The authorities, however, are now claiming that Brooks was merely fleeing the scene from another crime, and that there are no signs of a ‘radicalized’ background.
However, ‘scouring’ the social media accounts of Darrell Edward Brooks shows that he was a radicalized BLM activist, self-proclaimed sex trafficker, and black supremacist.
