The 21-year-old son of a Sanford police lieutenant walked up behind a homeless man and punched him in the back of his head, causing injuries that required hospitalization, but officers made no arrest, according police and a video.

Oh for cryin out loud. Unless you have some sort of proof that the reason there were no charges was because of his dad, than what you are saying is slanderous.
In my personal experience, officers who have kids that violate the law are the first to stand up and say that they should be treated NO differently. In fact, they tend to get special treatment as far as the jail taking when they normally woulnd't because the officer WANTS them punished. In our area at least, the kids of cops are expected to set an example are NOT handled with kid gloves.
If there was special treatment, than it was wrong. But what I have seen here, is you making an assumption...and that is wrong too.
