A new report on LGBT domestic violence has found that there was a 125% increase in domestic violence-related fatalities in 2008.

Boston has seen the real-life ramifications of the drastic increase. Nicole Chuminksi is alleged to have set fire to her girlfriend Anna Reisopolous’ South Boston home on April 6, 2008 after an argument, killing two of Reisopolous’ children.

“As seen in the national report, and echoed by the fire in South Boston, partner abuse in LGBT communities can be just as lethal as that in heterosexual communities,” said Beth Leventhal, executive director of The Network/La Red, a local organization whose findings were included in the report. “And the effects of domestic violence on children can be devastating.”

According to the results, police misconduct has become a rampant problem regarding the reporting of domestic violence. Reports of police misconduct in domestic violence cases increased in 2008 by 98%. According to the report, both the victim and the attacker are often arrested. Police officers often mistake victims with masculine gender expressions for the attacker.
