The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has released its latest domestic violence report. You can read it here. We'll note a few of the findings.
*Overall domestic violence reports were down in Tennessee by 7.4% when one compares the 2011-2013 statistics to the 2012-2014 figures.
*LGBT domestic violence increased by about 3.5% between the 2011-2013 and 2012-2014 reports. In the most recent report, the LGBT numbers were 4194 documented cases. That number was 4053 in the previous report.
*Within same-sex relationships, "the largest group of domestic violence victims were African-American females at 41.9%."
The report doesn't specifically identify relationships involving transgender and bisexual people. So the figures could be significantly higher.
