The last time we left the story of Dominick Black he had pleaded no contest to contributing to the delinquency of a minor, that being Kyle Rittenhouse, who liked to dress up in a full replica police uniform as a teenager. I have often wondered if he thought that was the most effective way to entice a teenage girl for a date?
Rittenhouse would use the AR-15-style rifle he was given by Black to kill two men on the streets of Kenosha. Black agreed to a non-criminal citation in order to avoid convictions on two felonies he had been facing.
The two counts were the result of delivering a dangerous weapon to a minor which then was used to slaughter Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber.
Letting Black off easy was correctly met with derision across the nation, with many at the time commenting it was only a matter of time before he would headline again. When the justice system is easy on thugs who show disdain for law and order with gun laws we know there is a very high chance society and taxpayers will again need to pay for court time and housing.
That is because firearms offenders recidivated at a higher rate than non-firearms offenders. Over two-thirds (68.1%) of firearms offenders were rearrested for a new crime during the eight-year follow-up period compared to less than half of non-firearms offenders (46.3%).
Though Black’s crime this time is not gun-related, his actions show a complete disregard for the orders from a police officer, and the cavalier attitude that the law does not seemingly apply to him regarding either the rules of the road or the use of illegal substances.
Dominick D. Black, 20, was charged in Kenosha County Circuit Court for fleeing a police officer this past weekend. The mayhem took place in downtown Kenosha.
A Kenosha Police Department officer observed a grey motorcycle with no registration displayed going northbound on Sixth Avenue from 52nd Street around 7 p.m. Friday, according to the criminal complaint.
The officer reportedly pulled behind the motorcycle and traveled behind it for a short time. The driver reportedly traveled northbound on Sixth Avenue from 52nd Street, then west on 50th Street from Seventh Avenue.
The driver then reportedly stopped at a red traffic light at 50th Street on Sheridan Road for an “extended period of time,” according to the complaint. The officer reported the driver also “repeatedly looked in his mirrors to see if I was still behind him after each turn or change of direction.”
While stopped at the light, the officer reportedly notified dispatch he was going to initiate a traffic stop of the driver. The driver then reportedly turned right and northbound on Sheridan Road and began accelerating above the posted speed limit of 30 miles per hour. The officer activated his emergency lights and siren while directly behind the driver in the 4900 block of Sheridan Road.
“Once I activated lights and siren, I observed the driver look in his mirror at my squad, slow briefly for a moment, before continuing at approximately 45 mph in the posted 30 mph zone for approximately one block (4900blk to 4800blk),” the officer reported in the criminal complaint. “The driver, after looking in his mirror, shook his head from side to side, as if he was shaking his head ‘no’ before rapidly accelerating away from my squad.”
The driver then accelerated at a high rate of speed, briefly, until the the driver had to slow due to other northbound traffic on Sheridan Road. The driver also reportedly illegally passed vehicles while fleeing from the officer and rode in the middle of both northbound traffic lanes, passing vehicles on both sides and almost striking the vehicles while trying to drive between the heavy traffic to get away from the officer, according to the complaint.
Once the driver illegally passed the other northbound traffic, the driver allegedly accelerated at a high rate of speed away from the officer, who estimated it to be in excess of 80 mph in a posted 30 mph zone.
Due to the heavy traffic and endangerment of the vehicle and pedestrian traffic, the officer deactivated his lights and siren and slowed down. The officer reportedly observed the motorcycle northbound on Sheridan Road from 35th Street. However, as the motorcycle approached the intersection at Seventh Avenue, the officer lost sight of it, and he began searching the area.
About 15 minutes later, another Kenosha Police officer reportedly located the motorcycle and operator at Simmons Island, 5001 Simmons Island Drive. The driver of the motorcycle was identified as Black, who was wearing the same clothing an officer observed the motorcycle driver wearing earlier that evening.
Black was arrested and placed in a squad car. Dispatch advised that Black’s driving privileges were suspended, and Black stated the motorcycle was not registered to him at the time, according to the complaint. Black also reportedly didn’t have insurance.
While an officer was gathering information, Black reportedly began “appearing to move around more than usual” in the squad car. Black reportedly stated he was getting too hot and needed air. Black then reportedly began shaking in the back of the squad and appeared to have gone in and out of consciousness.
Black was transported to an area hospital and had blood work done. Hospital staff reported that Black had a traceable amount of cocaine in his blood, but not enough to cause impairment. Hospital staff advised Black’s symptoms appeared to be consistent with an anxiety attack or panic attack, according to the complaint.
If Black can only get the same judge that Rittenhouse had he should be in great shape!
And so it goes.
