According to both the accuser and SU Davis claims to have contacted SPD in 2003 and spoken to a detective. This is why the DA is involved now. If there had been an allegation in 2003 even if the statute of limitations had expired for the alleged crimes against Davis, an investigation should have been opened because Fine was in the same position and capacity to possibly be repeating the abuse on other victims. SPD has not indicated whether there is any evidence they were contacted in 2003. ESPN makes a point to mention that the SPD Chief was a former SU player. The implication is that SPD or at the very least one SPD detective are complicit. Surely SU, when told by a former ballboy that police had been contacted and this is what they said, would have contacted the police to see what their investigation yielded. Surely a responsible reporter covering the story would contact SPD to ask questions about a report or a conversation with a detective and Davis. I am all but certain that BS&K would have contacted SPD during their investigation into the matter. So the key is 2003. If Davis did indeed contact a SPD detective, then at least one person in the SPD did not follow through on how child sex abuse cases are meant to be handled. If it can be proven that there was no contact with police prior to yesterday, then this is all what many people are concluding and the accusers could be in a lot of trouble. This is the key. If SPD is found complicit in any way, even through indifference, this is every bit PSU in comparison. If there was no 2003 police call then Bernie Fine is the victim.
We need to know from SPD what happened (or didn't happen) in 2003. We need to see the report from BS&K in 2005. We need to know if Davis and Lang are being truthful, and this is where to start.
