And man - if that picture doesn't make people stop thinking domestic-violence jokes are ironic or cute, SatTatt doesn't know if there's hope for us as a species. The photograph, which police say had been kept under very tight wraps, somehow meandered out of the LAPD files and onto TMZ.com at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

Robert Venable most likely came to Philadelphia a slave, shipped from Barbados as a little boy and ultimately bought and used by merchant Hugh Donaldson in the late 1740s.
