This case raises several questions, based upon the various media reports:

1. Did an officer actually ignore the allegations of a victim/offender?
2. Was there special treatment offered to a suspect, as alleged in an official police report (different media report)?
3. Was a suspect interviewed without the benefit of an attorney presence, when his mental capacity is described as that of a kindergartener AND he is confirmed non-hearing/below functional capacity (not clarified in ANY media report I have read)?
4. Were there trained interviewers present capable of ensuring his understanding of the interview/the potential criminal charges (not just non-hearing, but mental capacity) This may be the most problematic from a prosecutorial standpoint...

This is challenging situation for ANY agency, not just SFPD. So many rights, so many protections, so many extraneous variables, beyond the "normal" investigative process. It will be "legally" interesting!
