I’m actually surprised people are defending his actions on the basis of a written apology.
Yes, people are entitled to a second chance. But not on the basis of a well written apology.
I think the act itself is a very disturbing one, and says a lot about how powerful he felt.
There are people in society that have as much power or even more and choose to define their lives in other ways. Unfortunately we don’t hear nearly enough about these people to actually celebrate them.
Maybe if we did celebrate the good people more, it might actually highlight just how horrible an act it is.
An apology was always going to be withstanding for a person trying to salvage their career.
