Here’s the open felony warrant on Jacob Blake stemming from a domestic violence incident on or about May 3, 2020. In short, no child molestation involved (as some observers had theorized), but instead it’s typical Baby Daddy Drama involving a jealous ex-boyfriend. You can read the graphic details of the sexual assault complaint, but it involved jealousy rather than predation.

I’m presuming that when Blake showed up again on last Sunday, his ex-girlfriend called the cops so she wouldn’t have to go through this again.

Jacob Blake Criminal Complaint For Third Degree Sexual Assault

For Official Use
STATE OF WISCONSIN CIRCUIT COURT KENOSHA COUNTY
STATE OF Wisconsin Plaintiff, vs. JACOB S. BLAKE 04/30/1991 Sex/Race: M / B Eye Color: Black Hair Color: BlackHeight: 5 ft 11 in Weight: 160 lbs Alias:Defendant.

CRIMINAL COMPLAINT …
The undersigned, being first duly sworn, states that:

Count 1: CRIMINAL TRESPASS, DOMESTIC ABUSE

The above-named defendant on or about Sunday, May 3, 2020, in the City of Kenosha, KenoshaCounty, Wisconsin, did intentionally enter the dwelling of LNB

“LNB” is used to represent Blake’s ex-girlfriend, the plaintiff.

, without the consent of some person lawfully upon the premises, under circumstances tending to create a breach of the peace …

Count 2: THIRD DEGREE SEXUAL ASSAULT, DOMESTIC ABUSE

The above-named defendant on or about Sunday, May 3, 2020, in the City of Kenosha, Kenosha County, Wisconsin, did have sexual intercourse with LNB, without that person’s consent … a Class G Felony, and uponconviction may be fined not more than Twenty Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000), or imprisoned not more than ten (10) years, or both. …

Count 3: DISORDERLY CONDUCT, DOMESTIC ABUSE
The above-named defendant on or about Sunday, May 3, 2020, in the City of Kenosha, Kenosha County, Wisconsin, while in a public or private place, did engage in violent, abusive, indecent, profane, boisterous, unreasonably loud or otherwise disorderly conduct, under circumstances in which such conduct tended to cause or provoke a disturbance, … a Class B Misdemeanor, and upon conviction may be fined not more than One Thousand Dollars ($1,000), or imprisoned not more than ninety (90) days, or both. …

PROBABLE CAUSE:
On May 3, 2020 Kenosha Police Officer Raiche, in full uniform and operating marked squad#3343, responded … for a report of an ex-boyfriend who had broken into the residence and stole vehicle keys, a vehicle anda debit card from the victim before fleeing. Officers Matz and Raiche arrived on scene and spoke with LNB. Officer Raiche reports LNB was crying and visibly shaken, dressed only in a nightgown. LNB invited them in and explained that the previous evening she had left at approximately 8PM to attend a party in Milwaukee. LNB rented a vehicle for the weekend because she didn’t think her vehicle would make it because of mechanical issues. LNB asked her sister Tamara to stay the night and watch her three children while she was gone. LNB returned home at about 4:11AM, her sister was sleeping in the living room on the couch with numerous children so LNB brought her son with her into the first bedroom down the hallway on the east wall, they then lay down to go to sleep. LNB stated at about 6AM she was woken up by the father of her children, Jacob Blake, herein known as the defendant, standing over her saying, “I want my shit.” As LNB lay there, on her back, the defendant, suddenly and without warning, reached his hand between her legs,penetrated her vaginally with a finger, pull it out and sniffed it, and said, “Smells like you’ve been with other men.”

Officer Raiche reported LNB had a very difficult time telling him this and cried as she told how the defendant assaulted her and then the defendant immediately left the bedroom. LNB stated the defendant penetrating her digitally caused her pain and humiliation and was done without her consent. LNB stated she was upset but collected herself and ran after the defendant out the front door and then realized her vehicle was missing. LNB ran back inside to her purse, which was on the kitchen counter and checked it, quickly realizing her key to her truck (Ford Explorer 2002), a black individual key and the only key for the vehicle and her Great Lakes Debit Card were missing. LNB immediately called 911 and while waiting for Officers, checked her Great Lakes Account and saw two fraudulent ATM withdrawals on May 3, 2020 that she did not make, both at PNC Bank, 3920 Washington Road, both for $500, at an unknown time.

LNB stated she and the defendant have three children together but have never resided together in the eight years they have been on and off. LNB stated the defendant is unemployed, has no vehicle, and would not tell LNB where he was currently living. LNB stated over the past eight years the defendant has physically assaulted her around twice a year when he drinks heavily. LNB did not know how the defendant entered the apartment and thought maybe through a window.

Officer Matz spoke to LNB’s sister Tamara, and she advised after LNB had left, the defendant came to the residence for around ten minutes and interacted with the children. Officer Matz asked how the defendant may have entered and she said one of the children had broken a key off in the dead bolt lock so the only way the door locks is by latching the privacy chain. LNB stated when the defendant comes over he usually yells through a window for someone to let him in and most likely when he showed up he possibly had one of the children remove the chain latch so he couldenter. LNB stated she has let the defendant use her vehicle in the past, but that he always asks first, stating it was inappropriate for him to go into her purse.

NB signed the Waiver of Temporary Restraining Order document pertaining to this case.LNB declined to be seen by an FNE, sheepishly saying she’d been through enough and was still very humiliated and upset by the sexual assault. …

On May 4, 2020 Officer Courtier met with LNB who stated her Ford Explorer was returned. The defendant had told LNB’s sister, Tamara, he had parked the vehicle outside of her (Tamara’s) residence with the keys. LNB stated she went to Illinois and picked up her vehicle, which was not damaged. Detective Kunz reports he followed up with PNC Bank ATM and Kwik Trip and searched footage at the store between the hours of 0500-0615 on the morning of the incident and at this time, is was believed there was no video evidence based on the information obtained so far.On May 5, 2020 Detective Kunz spoke with LNB who advised she had located her debit card in her rental after she had cancelled the card and she did not know who made the transactions….

Also, was Blake attempting to drive off with his three kids? Presumably, they were legally in their mother’s custody. Would there have been an Amber alert out for Jacob Blake if the cops hadn’t shown up?

Jacob Blake was shot with his 3 kids in the backseat. But who had legal custody of them? Blake? Or, more likely, his ex-girlfriend, their mother?

Are angry Baby Daddies allowed to abduct their children from the mother who has legal custody? Aren’t the cops supposed to stop that?

My vague impression is that a lot of police shootings arise out of this kind of domestic dispute in which passions run high. The man is mad at the mother of his children, she calls the cops, he gets stubborn and outraged, and violently resists the cops, seeing them as siding with his ex-girlfriend.

Lots of white guys have been shot by cops over the years in the same sort of situation. Systemic Racism got nothing to do with it.

You can look up the State of Wisconsin’s previous complaints against Jacob Blake (born 4/30/1991) here. They aren’t as serious, mostly child support and operating a car without a license. On the other hand, I don’t know how complete they are. They don’t include the 2015 incident in which pulled a gun in a bar dispute, resisted arrest, and was put in emergency room by Dozer the K-9 officer.

I can’t tell whether Blake was a serious criminal or just a blue-collar screw-up.

In other details, it appears the cops first shot Blake twice with a taser, but it had little effect on him. For a taser to work, I am told, the two darts fired have to spread out and stick in the flesh at least a foot apart, so it usually doesn’t work within 6 or 7 feet.

It would be really nice to have a nonlethal way to immobilize unreasonable men. The taser was supposed to be it, but is pretty hit or miss. What methods do other countries use?

    Hopefully the next time a black guy fights the cops, and gets the upper hand to the point that the cop shoots and kills the black guy because he is in fear for his life, it will happen in the upper East Side, or perhaps in the D.C. suburbs.

    May 3 . . . wait, wasn’t there a COVID-19 lockdown going on right then, as in no gatherings with other people? Yet that didn’t stop her from going to Milwaukee for a party. Hmm.

    I think the really crucial missing information is what, if any, information did the cop have that would give him reasonable grounds for thinking there was a gun in the car.

    If he had that information, it was a justified shooting.

    If he did not, and he shot out of anger or an effort merely to prevent escape, I think it’s attempted murder.

    It won’t immobilize them, but if you need them to disperse:

  12. If you “believe all women” than blake is obviously a predatory man who is a threat to “LMB” and the children.

    However, if “Black lives matter”, then the police should have let him go, in the name of emmit till and slaves building the white house.

    The obvious and correct decision, of course, is to judge and treat people on their actions, instead of their racial, ethnic, or political identity. Imagine a country that did that.

  13. This type of incident is extremely rare and, as Steve mentioned, it happens to more white guys then black guys. It’s not racial, it’s knucklehead criminal types acting like idiots and the police on very rare occasions overreacting. Then due to everyone recording with and watching their phones like zombies all day, local incidents of no importance in the grand scheme of things get turned into national hysteria.

    The real question is who is pushing for this hysteria and consequent violence and strife? Cui bono? Who are the puppeteers and the wizards behind the curtain. Where is the money, planning, logistics and supplies for antifa and BLM coming from? Are RICO laws being violated? Is China or other foreign governments involved? Are foreign or domestic intelligence agencies or insividuals involved?

    On a different but related note, Maxine Waters has called for mob street intimidation against Trump administration officials. If someone organized a peaceful and lawful parade into her neighborhood at 6am or the middle of the night or at her favorite restaurant in response, how would she react? The ideal is no mob activity period and everyone is civil. But it takes two. One thing that is not tenable is one party calling for or slyly encouraging mob intimidation and more against tbe other and their constituents.

Crimes varying in seriousness, but all of which could generally be avoided with a little thought (Need to get to work with a suspended license? Work out something with relatives, or at least drive very carefully), and none of which brought him a serious profit.

    The media has been very quick to describe Mr. Blakes being shot in front of his three children but no one ever mentions whether he had any custodial rights to the children. Given that his parents and attorney have given press conferences, one would think that someone would ask about the felony warrant or whether Mr. Blakes had any custodial rights to the children in the car.

    He had a prior incident wherein he resisted arrest after drawing a gun during an altercation in a bar. And he had hidden said gun in the car he was stopped in. If his name was associated with the dispatch call, the police may have been aware of that.

    In any case, if you want to get yourself shot by police, there are few things that will work better to make that happen than rummaging around in a car in the course of resisting arrest, for very good reasons.

    Well, if so, that would be kidnapping, wouldn’t it? And I’m pretty sure that kidnapping is a “forcible felony”. And I don’t know about Wisconsin, but where I live, you’re allowed to use deadly force to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony. You don’t even have to be a cop to do it.

  22. Bring back the use of nightsticks?

    I assume the move away from them was because they can cause serious brain trauma if you are clubbed in the head, whereas tasers and pepper spray are less likely to cause permanent injury.

    However, I think that the law of unintended consequences has shown up, as follows:
    1. Tasers seem more complicated to use and therefore less effective at subduing recalcitrant suspects. It’s a lot harder to screw up hitting someone with a club.
    2. Psychology: Just a guess, but nightsticks are more obvious to suspects. Are they therefore more intimidating? Will they make a suspect more likely to stop?

    I’m presuming that when Blake showed up again on last Sunday, his ex-girlfriend called the cops so she wouldn’t have to go through this again.

    We have little idea what she actually went through and/or what their relationship is, at least from this report.

    1) Do we know he’s an “ex-boyfriend” ?

    from the police complaint quoted in the OP:

    LNB stated she and the defendant have three children together but have never resided together in the eight years they have been on and off.

    He could very well be the ex-bf, but he could also be the current bf. Equally “bf” and “ex-bf” may not even apply as they are commonly understood since this is a whole different system of relationships, sexual rules etc.

    In fact it seems that by the time of the Aug 23rd shooting he was “boyfriend” still / again, at least according to how the cops have described it:
    “Kenosha Police Department officers were dispatched to a residence in the 2800 block of 40th Street after a female caller reported that her boyfriend was present and was not supposed to be on the premises.”
    https://wqow.com/2020/08/28/doj-releases-update-on-jacob-blake-shooting/

    2) Note that the woman appears to have also “been mistaken” or lied about her debit card being stolen (i’m guessing lied). What else was she mistaken about or lie about?

    I think the guy should’ve complied with the cops and then he wouldn’t have gotten shot. OTOH, unsubstantiated one sided assault accusations and restraining orders against men are a dime a dozen so i’m not going to suddenly start believing them now.

  24. Thomas says:

    Tangentially related: Kyle Rittenhouse’s attorneys appear to have put out his version of the story, courtesy of Cassandra Fairbanks and Gateway Pundit. Take it all with a grain of salt, of course, but I assume many of these details would have to be supported by evidence eventually.

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/08/kyle-rittenhouse-working-lifeguard-kenosha-day-shooting-went-clean-vandalism-school-work/

    In a statement by Rittenhouse’s legal team at Pierce Bainbridge, provided to the Gateway Pundit, “after Kyle finished his work that day as a community lifeguard in Kenosha, he wanted to help clean up some of the damage, so he and a friend went to the local public high school to remove graffiti by rioters.”

    Additionally, the weapon Rittenhouse was using to protect himself and others never crossed state lines.

    “Later in the day, they received information about a call for help from a local business owner, whose downtown Kenosha auto dealership was largely destroyed by mob violence,” the statement continues. “Business owner needed help to protect what he had left of his life’s work, including two nearby mechanic’s shops. Kyle and a friend armed themselves with rifles due to the deadly violence gripping Kenosha and many other American cities, and headed to the business premises. The weapons were in Wisconsin and never crossed state lines.”

    When Rittenhouse arrived at the mechanics shop, he and others stood guard to prevent further destruction. Later that night, long after the 8 p.m. curfew had passed, the police began to disperse a group of rioters. His lawyer, John M. Pierce, explains that while dispersing the mob, they maneuvered a mass of individuals down the street towards the auto shops. Rittenhouse and the others were threatened and taunted, but he did not react. “His intent was not to incite violence, but simply to deter property damage and use his training to provide first aid to injured community members,” Pierce says.

    After the situation seemed to be diffused, Rittenhouse became increasingly concerned about people who were injured at the gas station, so he went in that direction with his first aid kit. He helped those he could find who were injured, either by administering aid or directing them which way to go for help beyond what he could offer.

    The statement says that by the final time that Rittenhouse returned to the gas station and “confirmed there were no more injured individuals who needed assistance, police had advanced their formation and blocked what would have been his path back to the mechanic’s shop. Kyle then complied with the police instructions not to go back there. Kyle returned to the gas station until he learned of a need to help protect the second mechanic’s shop further down the street where property destruction was imminent with no police were nearby.”

    “As Kyle proceeded towards the second mechanic’s shop, he was accosted by multiple rioters who recognized that he had been attempting to protect a business the mob wanted to destroy. This outraged the rioters and created a mob now determined to hurt Kyle. They began chasing him down. Kyle attempted to get away, but he could not do so quickly enough. Upon the sound of a gunshot behind him, Kyle turned and was immediately faced with an attacker lunging towards him and reaching for his rifle. He reacted instantaneously and justifiably with his weapon to protect himself, firing and striking the attacker,” Pierce explains.

    Additionally, Rittenhouse stopped to ensure care for his attacker, hardly sounds like someone who had went to the riot with intent to kill.

    “Kyle stopped to ensure care for the wounded attacker but faced a growing mob gesturing towards him. He realized he needed to flee for his safety and his survival. Another attacker struck Kyle from behind as he fled down the street. Kyle turned as the mob pressed in on him and he fell to the ground,” his legal team says. “One attacker kicked Kyle on the ground while he was on the ground. Yet another bashed him over the head with a skateboard. Several rioters tried to disarm Kyle. In fear for his life and concerned the crowd would either continue to shoot at him or even use his own weapon against him, Kyle had no choice but to fire multiple rounds towards his immediate attackers, striking two, including one armed attacker. The rest of the mob began to disperse upon hearing the additional gunshots.”

    Rittenhouse then attempted to turn himself in, but was told to keep moving. He went and turned himself in to his local police that evening.

    “Kyle got up and continued down the street in the direction of police with his hands in the air. He attempted to contact multiple police officers, but they were more concerned with the wounded attackers. The police did not take Kyle into custody at that time, but instead they indicated he should keep moving,” the statement says. “He fully cooperated, both then and later that night when he turned himself in to the police in his hometown, Antioch, Illinois.”

    The poor reproductive choices of black women is the root of the black community’s problem. The woman says she’s never lived with this man for 8 years, was off and on in that time but bore him 3 kids. He has no job or no fixed address. This is worse than even African polygamy where a husband at least has to demonstrate some ability to take on a wife. Here this isn’t even a consideration.

    Things will only get worse as even Republicans now stay away from this topic.

    This is the key detail that initiated the first shooting. The sequence of events are shown in a video Tweet by a NY Times reporter. A shot was fired from an unknown third party directly behind the fleeing young man. Based on that, it is entirely reasonable for him to assume that the man in pursuit was the shooter and to defend himself with deadly force.
    Anyone who took a few moments to examine the videos would know that it was anything but an attack by a rabid white nationalist. It was a kid, scared for his life.

    Yeah get big tough officers so instead of shooting a suspect you can beat someone with batons until they comply, or apply a chokehold, or nonviolent restraint like a knee on the neck!

    If a white person says the n word it’s obviously justifiable homicide from there on out. And basically they all say the n word. But if they don’t… well silence is violence, right? So yeah, it’s all just fine.

    160 lbs, jeez. I’ve known lots of black guys and those under 185 were few and far between. Even a woman cop should be able to stiff-arm 160, and any man not named Woody Allen can hoist that off it’s feet. But I guess once Blake slipped away to the driver side the options receded. The mistake was the attempt to be friendly and unthreatening at the outset. I wonder if the officer can be defended on the ground that his own training caused him to ultimately need to use the gun.

    According to Garner v. Tennessee, it is perfectly legal to shoot a criminal dead who is fleeing custody.

    Blake had already assaulted the cops, and a policeman is not required to know that the criminal has a gun in his car.

  43. @Thomas

    Interesting, and entirely consistent with the video evidence.

    What I would have added/changed from viewing the videos if I were his lawyers is

    1) after the first shooting, the “growing mob gesturing towards him” included a man threateningly brandishing a handgun,

    2) Kyle didn’t just “fall to the ground” but may have been pushed down by a pursuer (video not clear), and

    3) “Kyle had no choice but to fire multiple rounds towards his immediate attackers, striking two, including one armed attacker”—both attackers were armed, one with a handgun (possibly the same guy from before) and one with a skateboard used as a bat.

    The above-named defendant on or about Sunday, May 3, 2020, in the City of Kenosha, Kenosha County, Wisconsin, did have sexual intercourse with LNB, without that person’s consent … a Class G Felony, and uponconviction may be fined not more than Twenty Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000), or imprisoned not more than ten (10) years, or both. …

    Isnt’ that usually known as “rape”?

  47. The man … gets stubborn and outraged, and violently resists the cops, seeing them as siding with his ex-girlfriend.

    In the defense of St. Jacob, “seeing them” implies that the man is wrong. Generally speaking, the cops do side with the woman in domestic violence situations. So it’s not a matter of misperception.

  48. They don’t include the 2015 incident in which pulled a gun in a bar dispute, resisted arrest, and was put in emergency room by Dozer the K-9 officer.

    According to Rand, Wisconsin has double the gun ownership of Maryland, and surpasses that of Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Texas, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia, and equals South Carolina. (Though they’re mainly used for shooting animals in Wisconsin.)

    My vague impression is that a lot of police shootings arise out of this kind of domestic dispute….

    Lots of white guys have been shot by cops over the years in the same sort of situation.

    Lots of cops have died at the hands of white guys in them too. A study found the most frequent scenario for a cop being killed was when walking up to the door of a domestic dispute location and being unceremoniously shot dead. Bearding him in his den and telling him how to treat his woman is hitting a lot of evolved releasing mechanisms for violence.

    This was a case of not establishing control of the loose cannon male from the begining of the situation. Given the history, Blake should have been immediately handcuffed after being identified, obviating any future need to taser or shoot him. Were the cops reluctant to do that in case it got into a Floyd type situation? Every one of these cases modifies how the cops do their job, but opens the door to another route to disaster. Unfortunately, mass entertainment gives a misleading impression of police work, so the public expect self sacrifice rather than people trying to stay out of trouble with superiors (rewarded by being bumped up a rank just before they retire) as well as alive to collect their pension.

    Very confusing. LNB of the felony warrant is probably Laquisha Booker. She is now the self described fiancé of Jacob Blake. She also claims that the 3 children in the vehicle were hers and Blakes.

    So she called the cops on him a couple of months ago. And she was also presumably involved in the domestic dispute that precipitated the current incident. Although it isn’t clear who exactly called the cops on this one.

    LNB stated she and the defendant have three children together but have never resided together in the eight years they have been on and off. LNB stated the defendant is unemployed, has no vehicle, and would not tell LNB where he was currently living. LNB stated over the past eight years the defendant has physically assaulted her around twice a year when he drinks heavily.

    In May, Blake was unemployed, without vehicle, and unable or unwilling to share current residence. And even with three kids and in 8 years LNB never lived with the guy. Plus he assaulted her twice yearly. But now she is his fiancé? His financial prospects are now much better. And with his injury, he will have to tone it down, I suppose. But was Laquisha the Karen of this incident? She was the a Karen in May.

    Can’t police get some kind of quick, potent but medically safe tranquilizer dart or spray?

    No, doesn’t exist. Magical thinking doesn’t solve problems.

    About 20 years ago some Chechen terrorists invaded a school in Russia and held hundreds of students and teachers hostage (you can search for the details). Eventually the Spetsnaz attacked after gassing the building with some kind of anesthetic that was supposed to put them out.

    It partly worked but ended up killing about half of those who were not otherwise killed by the terrorists. That was unprecedented and many died because the always secretive Russians failed to inform the hospital what they had used in the gas (that may be known now but for a long time it was a state secret.)

    So no, this wonder spray sounds good but so far doesn’t exist. Animals hit with tranquilizer darts often die as a result of overdose or secondary affects (not breathing is common).

    I’m anti-5-0, but I suspect that the image is ‘shopped – because of the halo around the gut (distorted pixels).

    Even so: even if it were half that bad, it ought to disqualify the porker from being a piggie.

    Someone who does not have enough impulse control to keep in shape, should not be trusted with a firearm – let alone a firearm plus the presumption that their weak bitch-ass fear of other humans is a reasonable for the use of lethal force.

    Stupidity and obesity are related (see this NZ study which followed 1000 people over 4 decades) – i.e., stupid children are more likely to grow up to be obese (low impulse control), so an obese-tard selected at random should be expected to be stupid.

    The ‘bottom line’ from the NZ study: a 1σ lower measured IQ during childhood led to a 27% increase in the cumulative lifetime hazard for adult obesity, and a 40% increase in the probability of severe obesity… compared to an ‘average’ kiddie. A kiddie with an IQ of 85 was four times more likely to grow up to be severely obese, than a kiddie with an IQ of 130.

    The study did a decent job at dealing with the fucktardedness of BMI as a metric, by including measures of inflammation and other biometric data in the BMI > 30 cohort to help differentiate obese BMI > 30 vs “big unit” BMI > 30. Basically, someone with a BMI over 30 and bad biomarkers (waist, blood lipids and high c-Reactive Protein) is qualitatively worse-off than a person with a BMI over 30 with biomarkers in a normal range.

    By the time you get to BMI > 40 though… BMI is enough: it’s phenomenally rare for human to carry 40× height-squared at tolerable bodyfat and waist circumference. At my height a person would have to be 140kg – 310lb – while maintaining a sub-40″ waist… which is almost impossible, even for the most ‘roided-out gymbro.

    Point is, the pollution of the ‘BMI>40’ sample will be negligible compared to the pollution of the “BMI > 30” sample: the latter will include decent numbers of people who are heavy because they’re athletic.

    The Wisconsin statute doesn’t use the term rape. Section 940.225 of the Wisconsin Statues created four degrees of sexual assault. The degrees are based upon the amount of force used by the perpetrator and the harm done to the victim. First, second and third degree (what Blake was charged with) sexual assaults are felonies; fourth degree sexual assault is a misdemeanor.

    A study found the most frequent scenario for a cop being killed was when walking up to the door of a domestic dispute location and being unceremoniously shot dead.

    Horse-shit. Absolute, bare-faced horse-shit.

    You accepted someone else’s horse-shit at face value: you didn’t check whether what you read was remotely aligned with the facts.

    Those facts are readily available – the FBI can build really comprehensive data on the precise circumstance of every pig death, because they’re so fucking rare.

    Over the last 5 years, 257 piggies have met their end feloniously; just under 10% of those were responding to reports of

     • domestic violence (12 dead piggies over 5 years; 2 in 2019) or
     • domestic disturbance (13 dead piggies over 5 years; 3 in 2019).

    And obviously, not all of these 25 dead piggies were “unceremoniously shot dead as they walked up to the door“.

    So “dead piggies unceremoniously shot dead walking up to the door of a domestic dispute” was strictly less than 25 – significantly less than 25, and unlikely to have been even half that.

    The most frequent single-subcategory scenario for a cop being killed was
    #1: Traffic Violation Stop (22 dead piggies)
    #2: Suspicious person/circumstance (20 dead piggies)
    #3: Wanted person (20 dead piggies)

    If we’re permitted to aggregate individual subcategories selectively to goose the numbers (summing 12 and 13 to get 25 for ‘domestic disturbances’), then Investigative/enforcement wins… because it includes the 3 biggest individual subcategories listed above) claimed 101 dead piggies over the last 5 years.

    Second place goes to Crime in Progress, which tallied 40 dead piggies in the last 5 years.

    Disorder/disturbance (which includes the apocryphal 25 “unceremoniously shot dead walking up to the door“) underperformed significantly, coming in third with a scant 38 dead piggies over the last 5 years.

    TL;DR: domestic disturbances need to lift their game if they want to be genuinely the pack leader for piggie-killings.

    Source: FBI UCR LEOKI Report 2019, Table 23 (Call for Service or Reason for Victim Officer’s Involvement).

    How many overall calls to domestic violence or disturbance are there in a given year, do you think?

    It’s hard to find comprehensive US-wide data, but in the UK (population ~⅕ of the US) there were 938,000 incident records that used the ‘domestic violence’ recording tag/attribute; in Australia (population ~1/13th of the US) there are roughly 300,000 domestic violence (DV) calls to police nation-wide.

    So a half-decent low ballpark might be 2 million DV calls for US piggies per year (so 10 million over 5 years). That generated 12 dead piggies – a lamentable RoI.

    Domestic disturbances (which are callouts where there is no assault alleged at the time the call is made to the local piggery) might be rarer than DV callouts, given the Yank tendency to embellish the story… but they’re less likely to get out of hand, too. Still, there will have been several million DD callouts, and they generated 13 dead piggies over 5 years.

    So… if you’re a numerate piggie, your unconditional risk of death when attending a DD/DV callout is extremely low – slightly higher than, but the same order of magnitude as, the annual risk of being struck by lightning.

    That’s why piggies who are killed feloniously have an average of 10 years’ tenure. The risk is vanishingly small, but rare bad things happen.

    Some people get struck by lightning: doesn’t make them heroes.

    According to FBI data, the “typical” firearms assault against a law enforcement officer most often involves a younger male assailant (usually age 15 to 35) with a lengthy criminal record. The assailant generally uses a handgun and most often opens fire at the point of arrest or bodily search. In most of the shooting incidents, the officer and assailant were less than 15 feet from each other when the shootout began.

    Firearms assaults on officers at Domestic Violence calls, on the other hand, have different characteristics. DV shootouts are more likely to involve an older male assailant (in his 30s, 40s, or older) with or without a prior criminal record and armed with a rifle or shotgun. Half of these firearms assaults at DV calls occurred very shortly after the officers’ arrival, with the assailant firing from the front door of the residence or laying in ambush at some outside location. In the majority of these firearms assaults, the officers had not yet entered the residence or made contact with the batterer when the batterer opened fire. Half of these shootings began at a distance of greater than 50 feet
