1. Hynes said a "very, very small percentage of priests" in Brooklyn were found to be molesting children.
2. Hynes said he was confident that his findings on "what is going on in the Orthodox community today" would be similar.
3. He criticized the media for calling both cases scandals and said media coverage was and is overblown.
4. He made a deal with the Catholic Church. Any priest reported to the District Attorney's office would be investigated for 10 days. If credible evidence was not found within 10 days, the case against that priest would be dropped.
What this last point means is that third party reporting of Catholic clergy abuse was not investigated properly.
For example, a secular studies teacher at a Catholic school a child displaying signs of sexual abuse, and sees a priest take that child into a secluded area of the building. The teacher reports the potential abuse to the District Attorney.
What you have at this point is a terrified child and parents unaware of the abuse.
What you get from that in 10 days is usually nothing. The kid is too afraid to talk and the parents have only the highest regard for the priest.
A good investigator would spend time talking to all the parents from that school going back as long as the priest was employed there. She would check previous places of employment and ask neighbors and coworkers about the priest.
On television, this takes a few minutes. In real life, it takes weeks of hard police work.
Under Hynes' arrangement, that police work is dramatically cut short. That means many priests were prematurely cleared by Hynes. He wants to do the same for haredi rabbis.
