NYT on Police Investigation of Rape Allegation Against Florida State Quarterback

This NYT story (published this week) is fascinating not only in terms of the window it opens onto a number of criminal justice and societal controversies, but also as a lesson in the types of evidence now available to police investigating crimes (particuarly those involving young people).  Here, the police could have (but, according to the story, largely did not) accessed video footage from the bar where the incident began, the text messages and social media posts of the students who witnessed the incident, and a videotape made by one of the friends of the accused.
