hospital and began harassing neighbors near golden gate park. in neighbor says john's car was parked near his house for weeks. >> so it fed the homeless situation here there was that massive homeless thing going on for four weeks. >> the district attorney's complaint also states that johns imported one of the guns into california and planned to sell it. police also revealed that names of national politicians were found inside the car. the fbi confirmed it is assisting sfpd in the investigation. chief sur stands behind the decision made by his officers. >> and now we have all of the weapons and nobody was harmed. >> reporter: neighbors also told me another man hung out with johns and he were concerned he was still out there but police this afternoon told me they have arrested the second man on unrelated charges. that is all they would say. in san francisco, lyanne melendez, abc 7 news. a group representing the families of the patients at the sonoma development center is demanding an outside investigation into the tasings
that took place last fall there. abc 7 news reporter vic lee tonight with new reaction to the story we investigated with our media partner california watch. >> very upsetting and that somebody would do this to our family members who are pretty much helpless to defend themselves. >> reporter: kathleen miller heads the group of family members and advocates of those who live at the sonoma developmental center. this is home to people with severe disabilities. miller's autistic son dan is a resident. fortunately, he was not a victim of the taser attacks. as president of the parent hospital association she he wants answers. >> the families are going to want to know and be realize assured that things are going to be taken seriously and handled in an effective efficient manner. >> reporter: but were they? the investigation was conducted by the o srm or offense of protective services the center's in-house police department. last september the director of the center received a message
on his answering machine. the anonymous caller said someone had a stun gun and a was using it on patients. the man was identified as psychiatric technician assistant archie malora. he worked at the center almost 14 years. doctors confronted him the day after the phone call. they found the taser in h his car and a loaded glock semi automatic pistol and a separate magazine with five rounds. he was placed on administrative leave but never arrested. a subsequent probe by the state public health department reveals that nurses photographed patients in his care and found suspicious abrasions on the buttocks, arms, and back of 12 people. a forensic pathologist concluded the marks were consist eastbounent with a tas.
all of the reported victims have extreme difficulty communicating. when questioned one person uttered the words stunned and malora's name. malora was eventually fired. we tried to talk to malora but he did not respond to our requests for an interview. court records show in april malora pleaded no contest to misdemeanor possession of a loaded firearm. he got probation and a $190 fine in lieu of jail time. but malora was never charged with the reported taser assaults. charges that if convicted could have given him serious prison time. we may never know why because our requests for interviews with officials for the center and the offense o office of pre services were denied. we also wanted to know why it didn't ask help with more seasoned investigators from the sonoma county sheriff's
offense. a spokesman for the state developmental services department sent us a statement saying the sheriff's office made the determination not to intercede but the sheriff's department told us we offered to assist in their investigation but we were told they didn't need our help. miller believes an outside law enforcement agency should be to investigate major crimes at the developmental center. she he can't believe there has been no arrests. >> it is devastating to the families. you have to let people know that we are serious about this. that is how you prevent further abuse. >> the d.a.'s offense tol offis they only went after him on the gun charge because the office of protective services never referred taser assaults for criminal prosecution. now, the d.a. office has received additional information and they will begin reviewing the taser case. vic lee, abc 7 news. a lot more to get to on this wednesday night. coming up, millions spent and little to show for it. the latest black eye for the

>> he does get independent on this summer day you can see his electric meter running steadily backwards. that means he is sending electricity on to the pg&e power grid instead of taking it off the grid. harry received a $94 credit on his electric bill for june alone. it all seemed terrific. that is, until harry received his year end electric statement from pg&e. >> it doesn't seem fair to me. they are taking what i generate and selling it some place else. >> here is why he is upset. it is hair arery's annual true up statement that tells him how much electricity he generated and how much he used during the 12 previous months. he used more power during the winter months than he supplied while in the summer he put out more electricity than he used. all totaled up he generated 310 more kilowatts than he used over the course of the year. he ended up with a credit of $279. however, harry found out he won't get that $279.
and e won't get the credit either. what he will get is $10 and 35 cents. >> we come to the end of the year and i am shown with a $200 plus credit and i get $10 and something for it. where is all of the rest of it going? >> harry called 7 on your side and we checked in to exactly what happened to his credit. >> the program is not designed to help customers make money. the program is designed to help customers reduce their electric bill. >> beth lindsay of pg&e she points out the solar power rules are all guided by a 1995 state law. here it is. public utilities code 2827. it created what is called net energy metering. it lets home owners receive credit on their electricity bills for are energy they send to the grid. if they use more power than they generate they must pay the
difference at the end of one year. however, if they supply more energy than they use their credit is actually wiped out. no rolling over, it is just gone. >> once-a-year their bill is reconciled in what we call a true-up and what that means is any outstanding charge that are owed and any remaining credit is zeroed out. >> harry says it doesn't seem fair that he gave away his extra energy not power company. however, pg&e says the law intended only to let home owners generate as much power as they use not to become mini power plants. >> under the net metering legislation, customers are required to size their systems to their annual use wage. >> the state public utilities commission declined an on camera interview for the story
