Suspect dead. ..................Domestic violence. .......I always found the armed suspect robbery in progress whether a bank or liquor store or whatever, to be of absolutely no comparison, NONE, in the level of danger/risk or stress than in a domestic violence call, especially an apartment or home. .........They have 'all' the initial advantage. A 911 hang up or open line from an apartment or home is a real crap shoot........................

I absolutely hated going to domestics. Especially alone.
Either one or the other or both could turn on you as soon as one was being arrested.
In Wisconsin, it is the only call a cop will respond to, where the law requires an arrest to be made.
Rest In Peace, fallen trooper.

I understand the "rule" now is if there is a domestic call where there has been a fight, at least one person goes to jail no matter what. what ever happened to reasoning and giving the benefit of the doubt? using common sense, instead of adding more misery to people. I guess I am a dinosaur living in the past,,,,,,,,,,

.........The Officer has discretion to use common sense. In California, if the Officer has evidence before him of physical assault or reasonable cause to believe the other party is in imminent danger, he's obligated to act. This may or may not result in an arrest depending on the circumstance. You will be damned if you do, and the same if you don't. Folks want the Law to fix there problems .........the way they want them fixed. Don't work that way.

Even though nothing will eliminate the risks, you should have at least two officers respond to domestic violence calls. God’s prayers and RIP !

In the early 70's my many of training officer's were a little more lenient. At scenes that displayed no outright signs of violence they would warn the complainants that if we had to come back someone would go to jail. It actually worked quite well. But then we had the regulars:

The 'Smith' family was a comedy of errors. The husband was the victim almost always. "I'm a stubborn Scotsman, she's a hot headed Moroccan I married in WWII. I love her", while blood was running down his face. In those days our hands were tied. He would not ever press charges. It happened so often that all the surrounding families would bring out their lawn chairs to watch the entertainment.

Eventually Florida law evolved to if there was any evidence of violence one or both went to jail. Much smarter approach.
