Philadelphia’s top cop apologizes to black men arrested at Starbucks – CNN

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross apologized Thursday to two black men who were arrested while waiting for a business meeting at Starbucks, saying he made the situation worse by initially defending his officers’ actions.

…”The optics are not lost on me. It is obvious the issue of race is indicative of a larger problem in our society, and I should not at all be the person that is a party to making anything worse relative to race relations. Shame on me if in anyway if I have done that. … I have to do better.”

No charges were filed against the men.*****

Damn straight, you should have done better!

***** = IT’s important to note, especially in light of this apology, that the reason these men were not charged with a crime is not be cause the police decided on their own to release them. It is because the DA’s office declined to prosecute.

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin apologizes for attempting to link teacher protests to child abuse

Bevin had come under scrutiny after he told a reporter children left at home could be susceptible to sexual assault or even be poisoned.

“I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them,” Bevin said Friday in a video tweeted by WDRB-TV reporter Marcus Green.

“I guarantee you somewhere today a child was physically harmed or ingested poison because they were home alone because a single parent didn’t have any money to take care of them. I’m offended by the idea that people so cavalierly and so flippantly disregarded what’s truly best for children.”
