Ignoring the rest of the

Ignoring the rest of the story, your boy should be stronger in the face of peer pressure, and most importantly, DEFINITELY should NEVER have assaulted a woman (yes, it was assault if he "patted" a woman's rear without permission). Seems like you gloss over this not-so-trivial point in favor of cop-bashing.

While complaints about the police handling of the situation may or may not be justified (awful lot of details missing), I'm not sympathetic to your son at all, especially when I consider if it had been my daughter/wife/sister's rear he had "patted."

I am, however, sympathetic to you as a parent, and I wish you and your son the best in learning and growing from his mistakes.
